Dana and Scott Hull have only been there for eight years, but you'd think they were native to Isabella by the way they fit into the fabric of the community.


They bought the Knotted Pine Inn and Tavern in 2004 and moved from Minneapolis to Isabella to operate their new business. Between them they've got a lot of life experience, but owning cabins and a bar was a novelty to them.

"It's a little different than we thought, but not much," Dana said.
