Owner & Manager
Erin Guenterberg is the owner and manager of Lake Country Family Fun. She is a wife to a hard-working man, and a mother to two beautiful daughters. Erin and her husband are both originally from southeastern Wisconsin and despite moving to other areas for college, they were drawn back to this area when they married – 11 years ago! After starting their family here, they do not think they could have picked a better place to call home! They spend most of their free time in the summer enjoying lake activities and all that this area has to offer. You can find them boating, swimming, and paddleboarding in the summer. And as long as there is snow on the ground, they will be found sledding and snowmobiling throughout the winter.
Erin left her job to become a stay-at-home mom when her oldest daughter was born. She started to look for activities for her daughter and her to do out in the community. It was at a play date outing at a local coffee shop storytime, that she met Melissa Peterson, creator of Lake Country Family Fun. Erin kept bumping into Melissa out in the community, and her website became Erin’s go-to resource for all family activities in the Lake Country area. Four years later, Lake Country Family Fun is now more than her go-to resource, it is her new endeavor; and she is so excited for this opportunity to continue Lake Country Family Fun.

Original Creator of LCFF
Lake Country Family Fun first evolved from a stay-at-home Mom with a toddler desperate to get out and explore the area. In searching for something to do, Melissa was often going through twenty websites just to find out which events were happening that week. She found this area was lacking a comprehensive site that is updated daily to find all the wonderful events that happen in the Lake Country area. Therefore, Lake Country Family Fun was born! Melissa found that people were always asking her what was going on in the area so she decided to start with a Facebook page in April of 2011. Next, that lead into creating Lake Country Family Fun, LLC in May of 2012 and www.lakecountryfamilyfun.com in June of 2012.
Lake Country Family Fun covers all of the Lake Country area and most of Southeastern Wisconsin. We love where we live and openly invite you to contact us if you have any questions at Erin @ lakecountryfamilyfun . com. If you see us out in the community, please stop and say hello!
