RAINBOW RESORT was founded by Al and Gladys Schumann in the late 1950's. Gladys picked the name "Rainbow Resort" after the beautiful rainbows which would appear on the lake after a rain. With the help of family and friends, the resort was built from the ground up. In Al's words "we cut our own lumber to build the lodge and cabins. You didn't go to the store to buy wood back in those days." In 1958, Rainbow Resort opened for business. The resort consisted of four cabins and a log building which was refurbished and used as a lodge.
