We returned for my wife's birthday. Wonderful accommodations, with fireplace. We took in the Special French meal with specific wines and a somolier teaching us about the wines. Great value.

My wife and I spent the weekend at the lodge to rest and recharge. We had been in the area in the summer, so by comparison - November was very quite in the area.
We booked a clubhouse suite with a jacuzzi. Our room was very nice and and quiet.
The wine tasting (included in our package) was pretty good... And when many of the wines weren't our favorite color (red), the manager made up for it by giving us a tour of the wine cellar prior to our dinner that evening.
The food at the resort was good... Only complaint was a small menu at the upscale dinner.
The pool hours were a bit restrictive.
The spa was very nice, and comparable to Minneapolis prices.
Given how cold it was, we had to drive back and forth to our room quite a bit... So I'm sure the walk was nice in the summer.
It would be fun to go back again in the summer with our kids.
There are some fun places to visit in nearby Nisswa and Brainerd.

Room Tip: Take a look at the resort lay out prior to booking... Especially if you don't want to walk or dr...

My time at Grand View Lodge was excellent! They have lots of recreational activities for guests. They have an excellent staff that will help you out with whatever you need. My mom and I got massages, and they were excellent, top of the line. I got the Glacial Rain Hydrotherapy Massage and it was a very relaxing atmosphere, and an excellent experience. Housekeeping does a wonderful job keeping the rooms clean. And for you golfers out there, the greens are well kept, beautiful scenery, just overall three very nice courses. This place is awesome, highly recommended.

Our family of four was booked in the same 'men's FAN cabin' in Oct 2010 Why? I have no idea. Father, mother & two girls. What a nightmare. Our girls were thrilled with TVs everywhere but it was not the getaway we were expecting. We had never traveled 'up north' in MN previously & this was our cabin. Blech. I used clorox wipes everywhere. We left this trip Laughing at Grand View & all the families that had told us it was a great place. No way--never would go back.

This story has a happy ending. We decided to give GVL another try this fall at the urging of our friends. We stayed at the Interlachen town homes this year after our earlier reservations were double-booked. The accommodations could not have been more beautiful & we had an amazing time!!

So pleased that we gave GVL another try. It was a wonderful experience for our family. We still laugh at our 'FAN weekend' but love the experience from this year! Goes from a 1 star to a 5 star!!

Room Tip: Tell them what you want & don't want. I had NO IDEA where we were getting booked the first t...

My husband and I spent the weekend here with our infant daughter, to celebrate my birthday. We had booked a one bedroom suite at The Pines, somewhat last minute. The day before we were to arrive, I received a call from GVL, wondering if we would like a free upgrade to a stand-alone one bedroom cabin (due to a larger party staying at The Pines). Loved it! We got here in the evening, and it was a bit confusing to find our cabin, but once we found it, we were pleasantly surprised. A fire was laid out in the wood burning fireplace, just waiting for a match. (we had to call the front desk for matches, but they quickly and cheerfully complied). The cabin was just perfect! Wood fireplace, leather furniture, nice little eating area, plenty of storage space, large, clean bathroom with whirlpool tub. Plush clean carpets, not the generic indoor/outdoor stuff at many cabins. Lots of hot water, and it felt like the bathroom floor was heated. Beds were comfortable, property was quiet. The only downsides to the experience were the weak shower head and they didn't give us more coffee for the second day, , but overall, a great experience. We didn't use any of the resort amenities, but did eat breakfast in the lodge both mornings. Great breakfast, and friendly waitstaff. This was our first time at Grand View Lodge, but it certainly won't be our last... A perfect, relaxing weekend! Side note: Black Bear Lodge has great food if you need a decent casual restaurant.
