GRAND VIEW AT A GLANCE

THE HISTORY

The main lodge was built in 1918 and opened for business at the end of 1919. Brownie and Judy Cote bought the resort in 1937 and added cabins to the property. Their four children now own the resort; they also run two kids' camps in the area and a dude ranch in Arizona called Tanque Verde. Grand View is on the National Register of Historic Places.

THE SCOPE

There are 195 accommodations, with townhouses, lodge rooms and about 85 cabins. Accommodations are in three "villages," including one on nearby Roy Lake. The grounds, including three golf courses, are spread over nearly 1,600 acres. It's open year-round.

DETAILS

Grand View is about 140 miles northwest of the Twin Cities in Nisswa. Check it out at www.grandviewlodge.com or call 1-866-867-8939.
