My room in the main lodge was full of bugs, laying on the bed, flying around the light, in the sink, on the toilet. Could not sleep.

GVL is always fun for our family!

We like the location of Grand View Lodge. It is close to both Nisswa and Brainerd. The up north feel is alive and well at Grand View Lodge. The main lodge should have better signage for guest check-in. We arrived at night and it was confusing with all the out buildings which was the main lodge.

Property was great. Everything was so clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Our 9verall stay was great with only a couple of hiccups. Other guests parked in front of our condo where signage clearly stated it was reserved for our house. When staff were contacted there was nothing that was done and since it was a busy weekend, parking was difficult to find. We had 1 sink in that wouldn't drain either. Otherwise the breakfast was great and we loved the outdoor hot tub!

Loved everything but there were not that many restaurants open but still great

Could not open back door of room to balcony, nor the windows. They were loaded with webs and bugs! So we had to rely on A/C

Was at a golf villa. Lots of noise above us. Could hear other going to the bathroom…no insulation between units

Loved having shuttle when we were out of walking distance for things

This a great place to stay . The room was quiet I loved the patio. The people above was was alittle loud . I wish I could have brought some movies and the room needed a sink also to wash cups in if possible and extra blanket. We stayed over by golf course . I didn’t see any walking paths except golf course so main walking on road which looked like that could be dangerous on peek time with the cars . I can’t wait to come back and stay . Coffee and and Gift shop was so nice and loved the fire and areas . Staff were soo nice and talkative to me . I definitely try to come maybe fall nicer weather but after peek season . I would love to visit the spa and play tennis next time .

Beautiful winter wonderland with a lot of family-friendly activities.

Everythings great i really like the outdoor hottubs. If you're coming stay at northpark its a hotel on property thats nice and new and cheap and just across the street from a huge outdoor hot tub. It was hard to find staff on property though just to check in. We stayed at the main hotel north and if you want to check in you have to go to a different building to check in which was a little annoying.

Very disappointed on customer service responses to any issues. Was hoping that being an "upscale" resort they would provide "upscale" customer service. Unfortunately, that was not the case rather the opposite and very frustrating! Was looking to find a annual family vacation place and had high hopes but do to our experience will continue the search...elsewhere :(

Beautifully kept grounds. Super clean. Staff were great.
