Thank you very for returning to Madden's and for sharing your kind words.

I haven't seen my grand kids in almost 3 years because of an emotional divorce between their parents. We were finally given the green light to see them and wanted the perfect place for the reunion so we chose Madden's on Gull Lake. It was close to their home in MN so their mom was ok with us taking them...

We were in room 2107. The room was ok the...

Thank you for choosing Madden's for a well-deserved get away. It sounds like you had some fun family time with your little one swimming in the pool, playing in the playground and walking through the pumpkin patch. We regret the housekeeping issue in your room and are grateful that you mentioned it at check-out. Please feel free to contact me...

We stayed in a room overlooking Wilson Bay. The sunsets were beautiful. And we had a wood burning fireplace. How much more relaxing can you get than the crackling of a wood burning fireplace overlooking the lake. We called for firewood when we arrived and within less than 10 minutes it was being delivered. We called and asked if they...
