My wife and I spent the weekend at the lodge to rest and recharge. We had been in the area in the summer, so by comparison - November was very quite in the area.
We booked a clubhouse suite with a jacuzzi. Our room was very nice and and quiet.
The wine tasting (included in our package) was pretty good... And when many of the wines weren't our favorite color (red), the manager made up for it by giving us a tour of the wine cellar prior to our dinner that evening.
The food at the resort was good... Only complaint was a small menu at the upscale dinner.
The pool hours were a bit restrictive.
The spa was very nice, and comparable to Minneapolis prices.
Given how cold it was, we had to drive back and forth to our room quite a bit... So I'm sure the walk was nice in the summer.
It would be fun to go back again in the summer with our kids.
There are some fun places to visit in nearby Nisswa and Brainerd.
