Best Minnesota Destination Venue: your best wedding offer yet!


In July of this year, we were named Minnesota Bride Magazine’s Best of Awards as “Best Minnesota Destination Venue.” We were very honored to have received this award. We work with many couples throughout the year making their wedding dreams a reality.

Our most popular wedding ceremony site is, of course, the Grand Staircase. The staircase runs from the historic Main Lodge all the way down to the lakeside and is lined with beautiful landscaping, seasonal flowers, lighting, and mature pines.

Traditionally, many believe the bride’s entrance is the highlight of the wedding. This entrance is typically the first time many of the guests see the beautiful bride in her white gown. The site of the bride walking down the staircase offers a breathtaking and jaw-dropping addition to the beginning of the ceremony.

Our Grand Staircase recently received many updates to improve the backdrop of our staircase. What used to be known as the Northwoods Pub deck is now a two-level patio. The top level is a restaurant called On The Rocks and the lower level is a space called the Lower Terrace and is available for an intimate gathering for weddings. The wooden pergolas, rock landscape features, and two waterfalls make a great addition to the appearance.

Over 10,000 readers voted for the Minnesota Bride Magazine’s Best of 2017 list, which features the year’s best wedding vendors, from dressmakers to custom cakes.

Of course, we have more spaces than just our Grand Staircase. The intimate Vineyard setting, rustic Norway Center, expansive Grand Ballroom in the Gull Lake Center are just a few of the other event spaces that make us such a unique destination venue.
