Reviewed 16 April 2014

This is one of my favorite vacation resorts in all of Minnesota. It has everything one would expect from and want from a Northwoods vacation. The resort has multiple championship golf courses, good dining options, wonderful lakeside setting, fishing, water skiing, spa and so much more.

Accommodation choices range from the historic main lodge to lakeside cabins to modern town homes. All have excellent amenities and many have full or partial kitchens. This makes a perfect escape for families, couples and golf outings for the men or women.

There is an indoor pool, outside bar and restaurant, wonderful gardens and facilities for conventions and group outings. If you want to know why this is called Grand View just take the walk from the main lodge down the landscape lit walkway to the lake....you will then understand. I consider this resort to be the quintessential Minnesota resort experience!

Grand View lodge is a beautiful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily demands. The grounds are beautiful, and the accommodations are excellent. There are several options for dining, and all are a delight.

Room Tip: Detached cabins are quieter as far as hearing your neighbors activity.

Grand View Lodge is a jewel in the Brainerd Lakes Area of Minnesota. The main lodge is on the list of historic places and you feel the history the moment you walk into the lobby. It is a wonderful setting for families, couples and outdoor enthusiasts. Plenty of things to do and see at the lodge and in the quaint little town of Nisswa, where shopping is abundant. I can't wait to go back very soon for another relaxing stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the golf villas that had a jacuzzi and fireplace. If you want to be away from th...

We had a great experience. We went in the spring and so it was kind of between activity options, but we still had a blast. The resort is beautiful. Our accommodations (a three bedroom cabin) we great. The continental breakfast they offered was better than any I have had. It was a warm buffet full of breakfast options. The pool was great for our kids. It has a zero depth so the little ones felt comfortable and a waterside for the older ones. Staff was very helpful and kind. We hope to go again! My only critique was that the pool area wasn't real clean.

Room Tip: I would call reservations because each cabin is so different. We were in 122 and it was a perfect lo...

We went in very early spring (still tons of snow) and had a blast; can only imagine how nice it would be in nicer weather. Although the lodge has been around a very long time, it was really well-maintained. All the staff we interacted with were very pleasant. Our cabin was perfect. There were three "studios" in that building. The size was perfect for my wife and me. Just the right amount of amenities (fireplace, coffee maker, fridge, microwave, etc.). Everything was very new and slightly modern, but still felt like a north woods getaway. Complimentary breakfast was great. Plenty of choices and tasted good. We went to the pub for lunch. Very reasonably priced and the sandwiches were good. We also got a couples massage at their spa. They did a great job, and the amenities were really relaxing (there's a steam room and sauna in the changing room, plus a relaxation room for before and after). We had a perfect quick getaway and really want to come back in the summer to enjoy all their other offerings. My only two suggestions to them would be to have an adult pool (there is a large pool area, almost a water park which is great for families, but I would be nice to have something a little more relaxing for adults. Second would be a few more light snack options in their "mercantile". Cheese, wine, crackers, light sandwich, etc. Some grab-n-go items to take back to the room would be nice.

Room Tip: All I know is 157 was close to everything, but still felt like you had privacy.

We traveled to the Brainerd/Nisswa area to check on our remodeling project at the lake in March. Since we couldn't stay at our cottage we decided to stay at Grandview for three nights. The studio suite on Nokomis was perfect. The staff was friendly and the breakfast buffet was excellent.

Grandview has many accommodations options and we will stay there in the future. Over the last twenty-five years we have always enjoyed their restaurants.

Room Tip: Nokomis studio suites ave very nice, although a second chair in the room would be nice.
