Rondele Ranch began in 2004 as a private residential retreat owned by Claude Bourguignon, whom originated from Montreal, Canada. As a renaissance man he came to the USA at a young age with a dream and a vision that lead to this Northwood's haven.
IN THE 1970’S
Claude and his business partners purchased a cheddar plant
in Merrill, WI where they began to produce an innovative
cheese called Rondele´®, a French-style spreadable cheese.
After years of success, they sold ANCO to Kraft Foods in 1990.
To celebrate his entrepreneurial spirit and entertain family
and friends, Claude constructed Rondele Ranch. The avid
hunter traveled the world pursuing trophy wild game,
and has many of these on display in the Main House.
Rondele Ranch is owned by Bob Chadwell; who shares the
founder’s original mission to bestow the grandeurs of the
Northwoods upon others.
“We invite you to encounter all the wonders
Rondele Ranch holds. We have people who
come here for the rst time, and they keep
coming back again and again.”
