Despite the Manager's comments to the contrary, the guest author of this review was totally in line with what my family experienced during the storm that hit the resort in July. It did not surprise me that the manager would counter the author with such an unfriendly response. No one from the resort came to check on us as was... More

We have visited this resort many times over the last 10 years. We have stayed in various cabins on the property, and across the highway at Roy Cabins. This trip we stayed in a room overtop the main lodge. The room's balcony overlooked the lake and the rooms was tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable with better linens than... More

Our family was treated to a wonderful visit to these outstanding Accommodations. Additionally the wedding and reception were held at this beautiful resort. The wedding was conducted outside in an absolutely gorgeous setting; pristine garden setting with beautiful flowers next to a large lake. The reception was held in one of the larger indoor rooms which easily accommodated well over... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom clubhouse suite at the Pines. This is across the street from the main lodge. It is walking distance, but in humidity or rain, it's not a comfortable or pleasant walk so driving is better-it's about a 2 minute drive. The suite was amazing. Pictures don't give a good idea of how much space there... More

I waited to write this but that is not fair to others who may face the same consequences. Coming form California, we realize that mother nature can ruin a vacation by taking out the power, by storm and earthquake. But, there is such a thing as a planned response. The Grandview Lodge appeared to have no planned response for its... More

This is the single most inane review I have ever read. In my 38 years working for Grand View Lodge and in our 100 year history, this is the single most destructive storm I have ever seen or has been recorded in our community. We were hit by Category 2 Hurricane sustained winds with wind speeds over 118 mph. With... More

Grandview Lodge is one of the big resorts on Gull Lake in Minnesota. The major golf courses are very nice, the grounds near the water well staffed, and the area itself very pleasant with beautiful plantings all over. However, our room in a Lake Nokomis cabin (not a lake view, we knew that when we booked) was uneven at best.... More

Our family of 12 ( 5 young children and 7 adults) went to Grand View for 4 days on their MAP. This was 2 weeks after the big storm and everything was back to normal. The kids loved it. They swam, rode boats, had tennis lessons, played golf, played bingo etc. Our cabin was right at the waterfront making it... More

We have been to Grandview before but this time we stayed for 3 nights. Included was a dinner, champagne, chocolates and breakfast buffet daily. It was a great stay - staff was so helpful & the dinner at Cru was superb! Loved the beach and enjoyed our pontoon rental. The room was recently remodeled and was very roomy! A very... More

I am a frequent customer of Grand View Lodge. I have been to all of the restaurants, and sometimes go to the resort up to three times a week-since I live only five minutes down the road. Also my family and I are aquaintences with members of the owner's family. Last night we had a group on the boat wakeboarding... More

I spent several months searching online for the perfect resort that was in my price range for a family of 6. I finally found the Grand View Lodge, which was 8 hours away from where we live. We were booked to stay for 3 nights and set to arrive last Tuesday. We headed out early Tuesday morning and had reached... More

We apologize for not getting back to you sooner regarding your recent experience at Grand View Lodge. In recovering from the storm damaged we tried our best to communicate with our guests in a timely manner. Unfortunately, there were some complications because we were without power. We needed electricity to access records of reservations and their contact information. During the... More
