Brought our team from Russia for weekend at GVL and it was just the best! Great cabins, staff and events planned for our team. We come each year and enjoy it more and more. Staff in lounge were great as was event planners Heidi and Kelli. Thanks!!

We have been to many of the Brainerd area golf resorts and this one really exceeded our expectations in all ways. The two golf courses were spectacular, the spa wonderful and the restaurants were delish. We took an evening boat cruise on Gull Lake and our cabin at Bay Colony was huge for two people. Very clean and well appointed.... More

One of the nicest places I have been to in the USA, fantastic setting and very well run. I would come back here in a minute. There is nothing about this place that needs changing. It is about 2 hours from minneapolis .

Our only problem centered around the lack of explanation upon arrival as to what menu items were included in the MAP that came with our room. apparently an appetizer is not part of a meal. Since we arrived very late we only had one option for dining and the menu choices were... More

"Big Picture" I was truly enchanted with GVL. We had a wonderful experience and we would definitely go back. Despite being a native Minnesotan, I had never ventured to this area of the state. A relative suggested that we have an extended family gathering here and booked one of the GVL cabins on Gull Lake. It was a beautiful, relaxing... More

We spent the last week of August at Grand View Lodge with our boys, 8 and 6 years old. It was our first time to Grand View, and they rated it the highlight of our summer. There was so much to love about Grand View….the pools, waterslides, the beautiful lodge and flowers everywhere, the golf course, the activities, bingo, etc….But... More
