Seconds turn into minutes, minutes to hours, hours to days ... time means nothing at Southwood Resort except the bittersweet time when we are packing to leave. It's always difficult to say goodbye to Lake Pokegama and all our resort friends that we have made at Southwood, say nothing or of caring and lovable hosts, Larry and Patty. Awsome sunrises, inspiring sunsets, and the full moon coming up over the lake while night fishing. I have been coming to Lake Pokegama for over 60 years. My mom and dad honeymooned on Lake Pokegama in a 1 room cabin. Now I bring my children and grandchildren every year so they can make wonderful memories at the lake I love so much. Thank you Larry, Patty, Scott, and Tiff.

Dear Patty and Larry

I have had a great time at your place. You are the type of folks that become good friends in short order. Yes, the weather could have been better, fishing could have been better, but our time at your resort and with you could not have been better. Wishing you both the best of everything life could give. I promise I will be back. Good Fishing

We have seen all the work they have put into the cabins year after year. They are gracious hosts and have the gift of hospitality. Thank you Becker family for your love and service. You are awsome!

Dear Larry and Patty

This is our third visit to our new "home" away from home, and as always, had an unbelievable week. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and as always we are treated like family by Larry, Patty, Scott, and Tiffany. Thank you so much for helping us create fantastic memories for ourselves and our children. Thank you for giving all, adults and children, new life-long friends! We look forward to our adventure next year, and hopefully for many more years to come. Thank you for making us a part of your family.

Patty & Larry

We decided to stay at Southwood Resort because of talking to Larry on the phone. His personality could sell a used car to another used car salesman. He and Patty are fantastic. We had 6 adults and were very comfortable in the cabin and didn't feel crowded at all. Larry and Patty made us feel at home and ran a well-oiled resort. Made us feel like we had known them for years.
