In 1946 Ralph and Marion Bergholtz took a road trip to Mallard Resort on the Chippewa River. They loved it, bought it and moved there with 10-year old daughter Beverly, starting a new life, bringing joy and happiness to visitors. When Ralph died in ‘61, he left Marion to manage a bar and cabins that didn’t have running water, much less bathrooms.
In 1971, daughter Bev Chartier became partner, then full owner, overseeing four cottages, a bar and 25 campsites. The love of her life, Frank Vorblosky arrived a decade later. Together, Bev, Frank and Marion made Mallard better than ever. Frank died in 2000 and Mother Marion four years later at 96; but Bev was never alone.
