Brainerd Lakes-based, Grand View Lodge has just been recognized by Minnesota Bride Magazine as the Best Honeymoon location in Minnesota for the second consecutive year; voted by over 10,000 readers for the publication’s Best of 2013 list, which features the year’s best wedding vendors, from dressmakers to custom cakes. Earning it the top spot for a honeymoon retreat, customers cited, was the Lodge’s seclusion, spa, customer service, cabins, ambiance and amenities.
“We are delighted to provide a romantic retreat and restful haven for couples after an eventful and sometimes stressful occasion, like a wedding,” said Mark Ronnei, General Manager at Grand View Lodge. “It’s so thrilling that so many honeymooners consider their stay exceptional, relaxing and memorable. Grand View Lodge is honored that couples choose to start their life together with us; we hope to continue providing an unforgetable experience that keeps bringing them back with each anniversary.”
With cozy cabins nestled within select areas of the property, couples are able to select from a variety of settings to reflect their tastes and interests, with maximum privacy, scenic views and comfort. “The small Roy Cabins were a perfect setting: quiet, peaceful and with a deck that looks out on Roy Lake. We had perfect fall weather. We sat on the deck and sipped wine, took a hike in a nearbly park, and enjoyed a couples’ massage at the Glacial [Waters] Spa. The Romance package includes champagne and chocolate – that was a perfect way to be greeted when we arrived at our cabin,” said Lisa Austin, guest who was married September 20, 2012.
In addition to providing an unforgettable honeymoon experience, Grand View Lodge offers all-inclusive resort golf on two distinct Championship courses and is home to a collection of renowned dining venues.
