Matteson started guiding tourist on fishing trips on Gun Lake. People would come from as far as Chicago to stay on the lake and fish its waters. Soon After, Artimus's son, Winfield Matteson Sr. started his resort business by building a lake house and renting out rooms. The lake house was located just West of where Matteson Marine is today. In 1919 he purchased additional land and had three cottages built using wood from existing buildings on that property. Today, Matteson Marine is a family owned marina on Gun Lake, MI. We specialize in pontoon and fishing boat.
