Welcome to Balsam Beach Resort! We the Mueller's (Clint & Patty) wish to invite you to our peaceful resort located on Lake Plantagenet. This is our 29th year at the resort. We wish to invite you to our well maintained, peaceful resort. Our Resort was established in the 1940's and has grown to become what it is today.
