“Spa Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2011

My friends and I recently returned from our (now annual) weekend at GrandView Lodge. The main purpose of our weekend was to enjoy a day at Glacial Waters Spa, and we were not disappointed. This year, we each added on additional services compared to last year, and enjoyed every moment of our spa experience. The staff at the spa are true professiononals and offer a level of service and expertise not otherwise found in the area.

We topped off our spa day with dinner at the Italian Gardens Restaraunt next door and enjoyed our meal. The Italian Gardens offers family style dining and was delicious.

Overall, we were pleased to find that Grandview Lodge, and all of its properties, makes customer service a top priority. Our requests and changes were met with a "no problem" response and we did not worry about anything at the Lodge.

These busy moms were able to enjoy a relaxing weekend at Grandview Lodge and especially the Glacial Waters Spa. We are already planning our next trip.

Overall, this was a beautiful location & place to stay. Very nice room & accomodations, but I found it difficult to find different places within the grounds. We stayed in the ClubHouse Suites which were across a highway. I did not have a car, but I did have my own room & so had to walk around to get to a few places. The lodge should talk to the city about getting a crosswalk across highway 77 so people can walk. It was a bit dangerous to cross & had this moment that I was the star of Frogger. Other than that, the food was AMAZING, the room was gorgeous & the wedding I attended was beautiful & looked like someone had thought of everything. All the people that worked there were amazingly considerate & nice. I will go back. Absolutely beautiful.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room, but the ClubHouse Suites are further from the main area, but...

Came for a wedding and extended the stay to enjoy the area. Relaxing time, but plenty of golf available & indoor pool for those who choose.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The food was good and the grounds beautiful. Our unit was on the golf course and was quiet and spacious.

We recently celebrated a family get-together at GVL, and everyone - young and old - enjoyed themselves.

-Service: constantly helpful and timely, without being fake or overbearing. Everyone we talked to, from the front desk to maid service to golf pros to managers, was smiling, kind, and genuinely concerned with the quality of our stay (it was excellent!).

-Facilities: We stayed in a large family-style cabin very close to the main lodge. The rooms, of which there were many, were large, quiet and comfortable. And clean! From one end to the other, one could enjoy a beverage while talking on reclining leather sofas in front of the wood fireplace, retreat to the study for a quick read, grab a snack from the full kitchen or take a nap. And private playground equipment right outside the windows allowed for easy & warm child supervision!

-Location: When choosing a resort on Gull Lake, one can't beat GVL. The value, grounds and historic feel undeniably make Grand View the best option in the area.

Room Tip: For large family gatherings, grab a cabin with multiple rooms for the best value/experience.

The lakehouse was wonderful. The breakfast that was included was top rate with plenty of selections. The service was impeccable. It is hard to imagine how the four days could have been any better.

Our three girls have grown to married adults coming to Grandview each Labor Day since 1978. It our family's strongest tradition. We love every aspect of the experience. Now grandchildren have joined the fun and we look forward again to tapping the terrific Kids program that was one of the original draws. We've been a tennis-playing family gradually turned to golf, just as Grandview has evolved from a tennis-centered resort to one including and then featuring wonderful golf. We still enjoy both. The Pines, Preserve and Deacon's courses are without peer, and the shorter Garden is perfect for both learners and the experienced. We've always stayed in the cabins, which invariably seem to include updated new features each year, if not complete remodeling. They're spacious, feature lots of bathrooms, big outside decks and are nicely close to the beach. The staff has been consistently helpful, friendly and responsive. The eating is great. We thought the food at the new Cru restaurant was terrific, although they seem to still be working through kinks in speed of service. The lodge dining room is a wonderful environment and the food is always special. I guess 33 straight years says it all about our feelings for the place, its marvelous owners and the consistently cheerful staff. Treat yourself!

I've also participated in more than a dozen business retreats in the Fall, when the grounds and golf courses are just gorgeous. Again, the facilities and staff support have been wonderful.

Room Tip: Go for the cabins near the beach; look for pictures to assure recent remodeling.
