Fern Resort has enjoyed a long and varied history. From the first owners in the late 1800s to the Downings today, the Fern Resort name is synonymous with customer service. Your stay at Fern will be one that you look back on with fond memories.

“The fun, fine food and hospitality you’ll experience at Fern have been developed into a solid tradition by four generations of our family (and there’s a fifth generation now growing up at the resort.) We, the Downings and Nelsons, have a genuine concern for the comfort and well-being of our guests. We hope you’ll truly enjoy your stay.” In 1918 ancestors and founders, Jim & Mimi Pettapiece, coined the slogan “The Home of Rolls & Honey.” Today, rolls made from Jim’s recipe and honey from the same apiary continue to grace the tables at Fern.
