The family worked together to get the Lodge ready for visitors. Pictured are, from left, are Gene Benck, Courtney Schellberg, Nicolas Benck, Tami Benck, Chad Benck, Kallie Benck, Alexander Benck and Colton Benck.

The lake views are beautiful and the fish are biting at the newly remodeled Benck’s Lakeview Lodge in Lake Benton. New owners Tami and Chad Benck reopened the roadside motel with help from Southwest Initiative Foundation’s (SWIF) Microenterprise Loan Program.
