Five of us stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3 bath cabin on the main property. We were pleased with the accommodations, which included a fireplace and deck. We loved the fact that each bedroom had two queen beds and it's own bathroom. The Glacial Waters Spa was FANTASTIC!!

I booked a "Last minute vacancy" through Grand View's website- what a great deal on lodging! I was also about to get a reservation to dine at Cru- which was an amazing food and wine experience! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and walked us into the wine cellar to pick our bottle of wine. We also had spa... More

We stayed just one quick short night on business. The accommodations were very clean and up to date with the times. Just beautiful. Our server Brian in the Northwoods Pub was delightful and the Reuben is sooo good! Great place business or pleasure!! Will definitely be back.

We stayed over the weekend of March 20-22nd and had family from other parts of Minnesota and also from Kansas City. We stayed in one of the larger townhomes and everyone LOVED it!!! Except for me, it's the first time any of them have been to Grand View and they are all talking about coming again very soon. The food... More

We stayed in early spring and enjoyed a quiet lodge experience. Perfect for a girls get a way weekend. The pub is fun in the evening and the lodge offers a shuttle service to your lodging to make sure you get home safely. The spa on the property is OUTSTANDING and worth every penny. I am glad I indulged myself... More

This was our fifth year returning to Grand View Lodge in Nisswa, MN. We LOVE this place - extremely family friendly - our kids love it as much as we do. We enjoy the balance of relaxing time in our own cabin with the variety of family events and fun activities in which we can participate. We will return year... More

We have made Grand View Lodge a must visit at least once a year. It's beautiful in any season. To celebrate a special event (we've been there twice in the winter where weddings were taking place), or simply to get away. They are typically always or nearly booked, so plan in advance. Definitely a nostalgic trip back in time. Some... More

Grand View Lodge, having all modern conveniences and luxuries, will truly give you an Up North nostalgic feeling, for anyone who's grown up in this region. The historic Lodge building is beautifully maintained and the grounds are well-laid out and fun to walk around. We've gone twice during Spring Break, which is perfect for us since we don't like the... More

We recently stayed in one of the GVL managed cabins in the Gull Haven resort. We enjoyed our stay and loved the cabin! The north-woods look as well as spaciousness of the cabin was great! We took advantage of the free shuttle to the main property on Friday evening to enjoy a beer and some live music in the pub.... More

I went to have a relaxing few days with my mother. I had been to this property before and loved it so I had to bring her this time. It was off season so it was nice and quiet but that was what we were hoping for. The only restaurant open during the week in the winter is the Pub... More
