Meet Rise Johansen & David Gruen
David Gruen had fished at Takysie Lake for years when the opportunity to purchase Takysie Lake Resort arose. It was a perfect fit for David and his wife Rise Johansen who both love the rural lifestyle and the fact that “the pavement ends just past our front door.” Takysie Lake is the ideal place to kick back in a lounge chair on a sunny day and read a book and is also a wonderful place to entertain their grandchildren.
Being a business owner in Burns Lake, says Rise, means you’re part of the “hub” of the community, and the couple likes getting firsthand information about what’s going on in the community. They love chatting with their customers as well as community members and keeping a pulse on life in Burns Lake.
Living in Burns Lake makes it easy to forge relationships with neighbours and with their customers. Residents, Rise notes, are very supportive of one another. “No matter if you have something great to share or a heavy burden to bear, there is someone who you can do either with.” Of course, Rise and David love the rural lifestyle that Burns Lake living affords them. They appreciate having a lake out their back door and being surrounded by some of the best natural scenery in the province.
Relaxing. Family-Oriented. Supportive.
Nestled on the shores of Takysie Lake in Burns Lake, guests at the Takysie Lake Resort will find a peaceful, scenic getaway with personalized attention and service. “Takysie” means “lake of many fishes,” and it certainly lives up to its name with its famed abundance of rainbow trout that jump so high you can almost grab them with your bare hands. Fishermen and non-fishermen alike will enjoy the tranquility of the lake, the majestic natural scenery and the clean, comfortable accommodations which include motel-style, self-contained suites as well as private cabins.
Takysie Lake Resort is a member of the Burns Lake and District Chamber of Commerce and the Southside Economic Development Center.
