My boyfriend surprised me with a winter weekend getaway at Grand View, and I LOVED it! Grand View is a classic Minnesota lakeside resort - with all of the old-school charm, and all of the modern amenities (including free Wi-Fi resort-wide that somehow also worked in the fish house!). We each got a massage in the gorgeous spa, and we went ice fishing right in front of the resort (didn't catch anything but we brought board games with us - provided by the Lodge - and had a blast anyway). The location is beautiful as well as convenient - close to town, so we were able to run in and grab any supplies we needed.
We stayed in the main Lodge (room 324) and our room was very nice. Comfy bed, huge sitting area, nice bathroom. My one request would be to have bathrobes in the rooms - but other than that, it was a great place to hang out.
The service from the staff - from the front desk to the spa to the restaurant - was incredible. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. Our room included a free breakfast buffet in the mornings and it was awesome! Yummy oatmeal, fruit, eggs, bacon, Belgian waffles, and potatoes every day, plus warm caramel or cinnamon rolls and a few other entrees (we had blueberry pancakes, bananas foster french toast, biscuits and gravy, and cheese blintzes). Each morning we were blown away by the variety and quality of the food. There were also wine tastings going on in the evenings and while we didn't participate, other couples that we met did and they had great things to say.
I really can't say enough about what a wonderful place Grand View is. I'm so glad we got to spend a weekend there, and I hope to go back in the summer - as well as next winter!
