While the main lodge is historic and grand, the condos are awesome. The golf courses are very nice, the grounds are wonderful, and I have no regrets in booking this place. There is so much to do in the area, great food, fun shopping, golf with a bit of a challenge, a little fun for everyone. I would highly recommend this as a destination, and if you are in to golfing, their golf 'packages' are a terrific bargain. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The condos are very quaint, stone fireplaces, great views!

The golf courses are great, especially the Pines. Beautiful setting and something for all in the family-beach on the lake, golf, lovely spa, tennis. Very historic lodge and cabins. Newer cabins and condos also. That said, you need to be very specific about what you are booking and ask lots of questions because the accommodations vary in age and type. Also some are two story and require climbing stairs. Be sure to ask if newer, older, stairs, or ground level so you will get what you need. Also ask how far your cabin is from the main lodge- do you want to walk or drive to dinner? Full range of spa offerings with great staff. Morning buffet in main lodge is really great and do not miss Walleye dinner. Staff professional. Love the little coffee shop.

Room Tip: Ask lots of questions as accommodations vary

I came here with family. The property is lovely and well cared for. The restaurants are pretty good but not great. The Italian place was the best, by far. There is a lot to do in the area, and downtown Nisswa is a lot of fun. The biggest problem was a lack of towels for the pool and beach. It was quite annoying to fight to get a towel. The breakfast buffet is nice.

It is such a shame. This should have been a wonderful experience. The property is beautiful, but that is where it ends. The service is less than acceptable. Housekeeping consists of clean towels and straightening the bed covers. No cleaning of the bathroom or the floors. Our cabin was dark and the bedroom was so crowded with the two double beds that you could not even open the dresser drawers or get to the closet. I have black and blue marks from hitting the bed when getting around it to get to the bathroom. The food in the lodge was barely acceptable. My husband had walleye that had so many bones it was not edible. His steak was tough. The temperature could never get right in the cabin either. When we lost power for over 2 hours we froze and there was no water. A miserable experience.

This is a very nice place to hold a confrence! Staff are wonderful and the food was fantastic. Can be a hike from your room to the meeting area but it was worth it...A great location hidden in the trees.

Room Tip: The small cabins are very nice.

We stayed for 3 nights in August when we visited MN for family gatherings. Nice atmosphere, friendly services from summer staff from many parts of the world, great outdoor activities including tubing and tennis. We had an all-inclusive package - the resort offers buffet breakfast and a good number of restaurants to choose from though food tends to be on a heavy side, except Cru, offering small plate dining menus (highly recommended). During our stay, we frequented Chocolate Ox - good selection of chocolate, candies, and ice cream.

Our 2nd stay here. What's not to love. The golf courses are great. The staff are all so friendly. Food is good and there are other great restaraunts nearby. Gull lake is a great lake. We didn't have children with, but if you did they have a very nice beach and pool area and fun activities every day for families.
