Grand View Lodge: The Perfect Romantic Getaway
We all know that during the holiday season and during the heat of the school year, your life can become completely busy. And sometimes—the relationship between you and your loved one can take the backburner. At Grand View Lodge, we know that everyone can use some time focused on just the two of you. Time to relax, time to have fun, and time away from that hustle and bustle.
Winter is the perfect time to visit Grand View Lodge with your sweetheart. Our new 60-room boutique hotel, North, offers the perfect accommodations for that romantic getaway you’ve been looking for. Book your stay with us to celebrate that anniversary, a birthday, or a romantic escape for just the two of you. With all the amenities and activities available right here on our property, Grand View Lodge is the perfect place for you and your partner to connect and create lasting memories.
Our beautiful new boutique hotel, North, is the perfect setting for your romantic weekend away. You will love the look and atmosphere of the cozy, but modern hotel with all the big-city amenities, right here in the Minnesota Northwoods. Located on the main property, North is just steps away from all the luxuries that Grand View Lodge has to offer from the award-winning Glacial Water Spa, and delicious restaurants, to our new NorthPark fitness center.
Make sure to stop by Brew, located right in the North Hotel lobby, for that coffee and scone in the morning or that glass of wine later in the day. Buy a bottle and cozy up next to the beautiful fireplace right in the main lobby or enjoy it in your private king room with your partner.
So much to see and do and Grand View Lodge
Whether it’s in the North lobby, in your cabin, or on the Grand View grounds, you will not be able to go far without coming across a cozy winter fire. Warm up next to your loved one after an exciting day of exploring the surrounding winter wonderland or after a relaxing day at the spa. Our bonfires throughout the resort are sure to keep the sparks alive.

The hot tub features three intimate bays, so even if accompanied by other people, you will love the private feel that the jacuzzi brings. Make sure to visit the hot tub at night and be sure to be able to relax as the hot tub is adult-only the last two hours of the evening!
