Rooney Family

Originally from the western suburbs of Chicago, Pat and Rhonda Rooney have been guests of Denny's Resort since they began dating in the 1980s. Even before that, Pat fished Lake Winnie with his family every year throughout his youth. Pat and Rhonda have three daughters, Sarah, 23, Lindsay, 20, and Kaylee, 19.

Our cabins and motel units are simple and designed to be comfortable. They contain all that you would expect when looking for an authentic fishing or hunting experience. Of course, if your cabin or motel doesn't have something you expected, please let us know and we will do our best to help you.

Our promise is to treat each guest with the level of kindness, courtesy and helpfulness to make your overall fishing or hunting experience memorable. Even more, we're committed to creating an environment "where guests become lifelong friends."
