Jamie Miller was raised on a dairy farm near Fredericksburg, Iowa. When he was a young boy he often visited his Grandparent's Minnesota fishing resort where he began to dream of one day having his own fishing resort. Ralph and Clara Saueressig owned Twin Port Resort on Partridge Point near Brevik on Leech Lake. In Fredericksburg, Iowa Jamie worked as a foreman at a cheese manufacturing plant. Jamie has three daughters and a son; Nickole, Kerri Jo, Jodi, and Kody.
Christie Stepan-Mitchell was raised on a dairy farm near Alpha, Iowa. She joined the U.S. Air Force after high school. After her service she returned to NE Iowa and worked as a QA Auditor for a cheese manufacturing plant where she met Jamie. She later went to work as a Registered Dental Assistant. Christie has three sons; Zach, Blake, and Nick.
Jamie and Christie raised their children together and together they built a grain bin sales and construction business. They traveled the country erecting specialty grain storage and drying systems.
Every summer they would travel to Northern Minnesota with the kids to fish, relax, and build their dream of one day running a Mom & Pop fishing resort as his grandparents had.
The last of their children graduated high school and went on to college in 2013.
In May of 2015, when all of their children had left the nest, Jamie & Christie's dream came true with the purchase of Sugar Point Resort. They moved to the resort on April 25th and hit the ground running! Jamie and Christie feel extremely blessed to be able to share their dream with so many wonderful guests who've already become like family.
