I have been taking 20 "older" guys to Madden's for a golf weekend for over 5 years now..........top notch service, friendly staff, great golf, great accommodation. Glenn the golf Pro is terrific to work with and leaves nothing undone for you. The guys think I do loads of work to make this weekend successful but truthfully it is all done...

First, get a cabin with a fireplace. Second, play Madden's Classic course. Third, eat at Madden's Classic restaurant for dinner. The food is WAY better than the Lodge and Inn for dinner. Breakfast at the Inn is wonderful - egg Benedict's on a buffet? - and good? Yep! All the folks on the golf courses know how to make your...

We stayed at Madden's (at the lodge) late July and have 2 teenage boys. I am pleased to say that the TV in our room was never on!! There was always something to do: badminton, stand-up paddle boarding, tennis, croquet, easy access to bike trails, golf, trap shooting not to mention the beach and pools. Food was phenomenal anywhere we...

We went to meetings there and it was beautiful. I am not a golfer but the golfers said the course was nice. Very relaxing place. It is old but it has a certain charm to it. Maybe would not seek it as a vacation spot but would return meetings there.

Thank you for reviewing Madden's on Gull Lake on Trip Advisor! At Madden's, we're celebrating our 85th anniversary of when the Roberts Hotel on our property was built.

We had a really lovely summer vacation up at Madden's. We stayed on the golf course and our unit was very nice. We have stayed both at Madden's and at Grand View Lodge. Overall, Madden's would come out ahead except that they are not open year round. We particularly love that they have an outdoor pool. Further, the activities area...

This is a wonderful MN family resort. The staff is friendly and available, the rooms are clean and spacious. My only feedback is that we visited two pools (one by main lodge and one by Voyageurs bldg.) and both were small and dated, and couldn't be used with small children easily. A zero entry pool is really ideal for families....
