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

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 travel with a large family group that has been coming to the property for decades. Overall it is a quaint lakeside resort that is great for the kids in the family. However, the owners should put some additional effort into renovating some of their older cabins, such as Loon Lodge. I will give them credit for updating the kitchen... More

Grand View is the premiere Gull Lake resort. The grounds are breathtaking, the beach is beautiful, and our "cabin" was first class. The staff at Julia's was fantastic! A special thanks to Renee for being so kind. The pub food was fantastic. I would recommend this resort to anyone.
