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.

  • Opening Weekend 2018
    The 74th Annual Opening Weekend at Meadowbrook on the Pine featured, good weather, high water, big fish, old friends, and a continuation of the greatest of family traditions.  Eddie Mowinski won the trophy with a 20 1/4 inch brown from Old Maid's Hole but was challenged when Chris landed a 19 incher at Log Jam and Kaitlyn netted
    a 17 incher at First Hole.  My personal highlight was watching 75 year old Sue Hilty showing pictures of herself, (in the Meadowbrook albums), at Opening Weekend in 1948 when she was 5 years old to a slightly confused 6 year old Kaitlyn Bowyer.

  • Deer Season 2017
    This year's deer season was very slow as we saw the fewest deer in recent history.  Some of this may be due to a decrease in the number of bow hunters actively hunting and remarkably bad weather for the first week of gun season.  However fewer deer seems to be the general feel in the entire area.  We did have a little success as Michael Bowyer harvested a doe from Rye Patch wooden ladder stand on Opening Day October 1.  The only other deer taken was a doe from the Rye Patch gun blind by Ben over the Thanksgiving weekend.  It is a good thing we don't measure success solely in deer harvested but in time spent in the woods with nature as well.
