I grew up visiting the Grand View Lodge but never stayed overnight on site. The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. Family activities are abundant. The charming century old main lodge is well balanced with newer facilities. We didn't have enough time to tour the entire resort, so we'll have to come back again. We stayed in a cabin near... More

We were able to score a last minute deal. The Golf Villa at The Pines was even better than expected. The unit is split into two floors with a bedroom on each floor. A pool table was below. The boys played billiards for the first time which was fun! We were able to book a ride on the banana tube.... More

I was lucky enough to stay at the Grand View Lodge as part of a client's management retreat meeting there. Loved the property especially the truly huge and comfortable rooms in the Golf Villas. However where I thought the service really went above and beyond was, when after a mini-tornado which took the power out for a period of something... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Grandview. Loved the townhouse we stayed in right on a private beach with a firepit. We had fun at the main beach and pool. Our fishing excursion was so much fun. Other reviewers have said most of what I have to say. But I'd like to highlight the gluten-free dining options. The breakfast buffet... More

Our stay was perfect. The studio on Nokomis we stayed in was superb! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the resort itself was immaculate! Would highly recommend this to anyone!! We do plan on coming back many, many more times!

Grand View is a fantastic resort for the entire family. Our cabin was top of the line and had everything we could need and more. The activities were fabulous and there was something for all of us. My husband loved the golf, my 3 year old loved the beach and the waterpark, and I LOVED the spa! We were so... More

Have come to GVL for several years now. Great rustic feel to most cabins and lodge (may really need some updating soon). Absolutely terrific activities and programs for young children. Spa wonderful. Golf courses are gorgeous (as is the overall landscaping). One area I have been consistently disappointed with over the years are the meals... steaks great (can't really go... More

I recently submitted one review And it was not real positive, but not mean either, just tried to be fair. For some reason it isn't listed here anymore. I don't know what could have happened to it? Anyway, we stayed at the end of June with family. Our reservations were messed up, not necessarily their fault, it was confusing dividing... More

I don't normally write reviews, but figured I had some extra time and folks should know what to expect if staying at Bay Colony - Grand View Lodge. the experience was not what was expected. The location of Bay colony is right off of highway 371 so unfortunately you hear the highway traffic. The entire area of Bay Colony was... More

We thank you for your feedback. The Bay Colony units offers duplex-style lakeview cabins for family-style vacations and is truly meant to allow guests a more private vacation stay being off main property and away from larger crowds. Plus with a 1000’ private beach area and dock system allows our Eastside guests a little more tranquility. Grand View is very... More
