Welcome to Meadowbrook!
Meadowbrook on the Pine has been in the Schwarze family since 1944 when it was 
discovered by Earl and Betty Horan and purchased by Herm and Norma Schwarze.  
The land was originally given in land grants in 1850 and 1866.  The property changed hands many times in the next 80 years before Herm and Norm purchased it. 
The lodge, guest cabin, and garage were constructed in 1912.

Fingers crossed there will be a new shower and 
an on demand hot water heater for the Opener.

  • Opening Weekend 2017 A beautiful but cool weekend greeted all who attended the 73rd annual Opening Weekend at Meadowbrook on the Pine.  The river was a little high but good fishing awaited those prepared to brave the cold mornings.  Brent Mowinski won the trophy with a 22 1/2 inch brown.  It was the biggest trout he has ever landed and the second biggest to win the Opening Weekend Trophy. This was the second consecutive year when the weekend had to be moved a week later than the traditional Opener of the last Saturday in April.  It was the consensus that this date change should become permanent.  So until further notice Opening Weekend at Meadowbrook on the Pine will be celebrated on the ...

  • New Shingles on Back of Tackle Room A recently discovered leaky roof called for quick action.  This was a serious problem because the leak occurred not far from the newly added five tap keezer.  We knew this day was coming as this project has been on the to do list since 2011.  Luckily Chris, Ed, Terry, Susan, Mike, Lisa, and Steve were able to complete the job in two days the weekend before this year's Opening Weekend.  Special recognition goes to Parker and Kaitlyn who occupied themselves for most of the time the work was being done.  The good news for me is this should be the last Meadowbrook roof I have to repair.
