Family Fun, Packages, Culinary & Vino, Resort Adventures

Grand View Lodge is excited to announce a brand-new weekend unlike any other we have done before. Hint—Cajun food, jazz music, purple and yellow beads, and fun for everybody! That’s right—MARDI GRAS. During the last weekend in February, join us for a fun-packed Mardi Gras weekend right here at Grand View Lodge. We will have all the fun of Mardi Gras: Cajun-style cuisine, Mardi Gras activities, music, a Mardi Gras stroll, and more! You and your family and friends will not want to miss this unique and exciting weekend.

Fun-packed weekend
Grand View Lodge’s newest Mardi Gras weekend is one you won’t want to miss. Exclusively for Mardi Gras weekend, we have organized and created an action-packed schedule of fun and exciting Mardi Gras events. The festivities kick off on Friday with a Cajun-themed beer dinner. Grand View Lodge and Beaver Island Brewing out of St. Cloud have teamed up to put on a delectable four-course dinner, each course paired with a unique and delicious local beer. Our beer dinners sell out fast, so be sure to sign up early! On Saturday morning, start your day off right, and head down to our New Orleans-enhanced Grand Breakfast Buffet (included in your stay!) Our breakfast buffet, one of the largest and best in Minnesota, will only be better with grits, gumbo, and more! After fueling up for the fun day ahead, take part in our inaugural Mardi Gras stroll-run, a fun one-mile long race sure to be filled with competition and lots of laughs (adult beverages provided). Throughout the weekend, enjoy Mardi Gras-themed activities such as a photo booth, live music, mask making, themed horse-drawn wagon rides, and more!

Mardi Gras without the hassle
You don’t have to travel across the country to have an unforgettable Mardi Gras experience. Stay here and experience all the fun of Mardi Gras, right here in the Northwoods. Also, you do not have to spend an arm and a leg to travel to Louisiana to experience all the fun. Book your stay at Grand View Lodge at a fraction of the price with deluxe accommodations and all the fun included! Pick and choose the activities and Mardi Gras events you want to attend and then escape back to your quiet and comfy cabin when you need a break from the fun.

Fun for the whole family
Our new Mardi Gras weekend is truly fun for the whole family. On Saturday, the young ones in your group will love creating Mardi Gras masks complete with all the decorations. On top of all the exclusive add-ons, Grand View has so many fun and exciting activities and amenities available right at our property every day and included for our guests! From our new North Park recreation center to cross-country skiing, ice skating, or our horse-drawn wagon rides, there are so many fun winter activities to be had. After racing your friends in the Mardi Gras stroll, make sure to pay a visit to our expansive outdoor hot tub. Relax your muscles before heading to the Northwoods Pub and taking in some awesome live Mardi Gras music. All of our restaurants, Cru, Char, and the Pub will feature delicious Cajun-themed specials sure to transport you right to Bourbon Street!
