Owner & Manager

Erin Guenterberg is the owner and manager of Lake Country Family Fun (LCFF, LLC). She was a wife to a hard-working man, and a mother to two adventurous daughters. Erin and her late 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 – nearly 2 decades ago!  After starting their family here, they do not think they could have picked a better place to call home!  Erin now spends most of her free time enjoying lake activities, especially paddleboarding, cozying up with a good book, and practicing yoga at her favorite local hot yoga studio.

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 lakecountryfamilyfun.com in June of 2012.
