Experience A Grand Getaway for the Whole Family on Gull Lake!

For over 100 years, Grand View Lodge has been providing memories to last a lifetime on Gull Lake. Whether it's romance, golf, family time or just a little relaxation that you're after, Grand View will accommodate you down to the last detail. If golf is your style, two championship courses and a nine-hole resort course await. For rejuvenation, the Glacial Waters Spa is by far the finest in the state. The 110-foot indoor waterslide, the connecting pools, and hot tubs promise hours of fun for the kids. If you love rustic luxury, this is it. From the Main Lodge and its 65 cabins - many situated near the 2500-foot natural beach on beautiful Gull Lake - to splendid golf villas, the resort is a perfect combination of soaring designs, historical touches and meticulous attention to detail.
