History of Hahn-a-Lula...

Back in 1961, Cliff and Judy Hahn, along with Ken and Barb Hahn, purchased the Orihula Ballroom. It started as a hobby for the young couples who were both operating farms and raising small children. The Ballroom was a large hall with no insulation and two coal furnaces for heat. The only running water was in the bathrooms and one line to the "bar". The "bar" was plywood on a frame and was painted pink. The "kitchen" consisted of a counter, a refrigerator, a very small grill and a pop tank. No water!

In 1966, Cliff and Judy and their two sons, left the farm, bought out Ken & Barb and began transforming the Ballroom into what it is today. In the 1970's land was purchased and the Hahn-a-Lula Resort expanded by adding mobile homes for lodging and a spring-fed lake, complete with sandy beach, was dug.


In the past 50 years, Cliff and Judy along with the help of family members and many dedicated employees have transformed Hahn's. The business has gone from a simple hall and bar to a modern resort complete with camping sites, RV park, swimming beach and fishing access. If you're looking for good food, comfortable surroundings, excellent fishing and great people, the Hahn-a-Lula Resort is the place to be.
