Lake Marjorie


Lake marjorie


Lake Marjorie is truly a dream come true. Marjorie Ryan, who ran the farm and lived a stone’s throw away from the present day location of the lake always dreamed of having a beautiful body of water on the farm. Her grandson Richie who took care of her and eventually managed the property made her dream a reality.

Resting on the backside of the 100 acre Ryan Family Farm and adjacent to the Red Wing Recreation Area (an additional 140 acres of preserved nature and trails), Lake Marjorie fits seamlessly into a playground of natural beauty.

Lake Marjorie’s owner, Richie Ryan, built the lake himself. Richie is an excavator with a Gravel Bank to prove it right next to the lake (the lucrative by product of the dig). As deep as 60 feet in some areas, Lake Marjorie has naturally grown eco shelves beneath the surface with large immovable rocks as barriers. The lake has been stocked with trout and bass which have been happily at home for 8 years now.

The 12 acre lake compound is a natural, spring fed private location, perfect for hosting retreats, ceremonies, and all kinds of get togethers.


Lake Marjorie is equipped with:

  • Pavilion and Homemade Picnic Tables to seat 50 people

  • Imported Beach Sand Volleyball Court

  • Hand Crafted Stone Fire Pit

  • Recreation Utility Shed

  • Working Kitchen

  • Potable Water Sources

  • Seasonal Lake Docks

  • Ability to host Private Functions from 200-300 people (ample parking, space for tents, food trucks, live music or DJs, ceremonies, parties, and more)

  • A view to remember and more to come!

Originally built for the family to enjoy a private setting for gatherings and some “good old fashioned summer fun”, The Ryan Family Farm is excited to share Lake Marjorie with you to enjoy the same!
