We had a really nice long weekend at Grand View. We were a big group and our cabins didn't end up being together, but it ended up working out and Grand View worked with us to find a good solution. Gull Lake is beautiful and clean and great for families with all ages. We had ages 2-80 with every age... More

Same room in the main lodge. My wife and I like our privacy. The majority of family stay in cabins. Usually the family numbers range from 42 to 80 over the past 12 years. Great facilities, rustic charm, service is great and staff always willing to help. Food choice and menus in all the various restaurant facilities is excellent. CRU... More

My husband's company was hosting a weekend retreat at Grand View this past weekend, and we also had decided to stay another night just to extend the mini vacation. The layout of the actual resort is a bit confusing, but because my husband had been there before, he was able to navigate through it. I didn't consider this a knock... More

It's a nice resort but very snooty. Some staff are great, some don't care, some are condescending. We had a business trip and they spent a lot of time kissing up to the leader of our group but others did not get the same service. Housekeeping was pretty minimal.

Treated very well from our arrival to departure. Lodging was fantastic and the two main golf courses are some of the best in the state. Facilities were well maintained and easy to get around on the walking paths.

The Grand View Lodge was a wonderful place to stay with my family. We stayed in the condos at the Pines which were across the street from the main lodge. We told advantage of many of the free activities and would have done everything they offered if we had the time! The staff was super helpful and friendly, the food... More

This lodge and grounds are beautiful. We stayed in the Pines one bedroom. Plenty of space to not step in one another's toes for 3-4 people. Large bathroom with jetted tub and separate shower. It was well kept and clean but does need a repaint. This lodge has 6-7 restaurants. We ate at 4 different and each has a small... More

My first contact with GVL was when I made our reservation over the phone. The person I spoke with was very friendly and helpful. We were very happy with all of the activities that were included and able to easily register for activities using the online system. Unfortunately, the bike tour was always full so never got to do that... More

What a pleasant surprise when we made last minute reservations for the Grand View Lodge and found our cabin was the size of an entire house. I voted for living there but my husband didn't think it was worth the long term rent. Our cabin around the main lodge was very modern and updated with many amenities. It had everything... More

We had a wonderful time at Grandview! The property is beautiful and well maintained. The food was delicious. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There are plenty of amenities to keep the family busy and several are complimentary. This was exactly the "Up North" vacation I was hoping for! We will definitely be back!!
