Win a Getaway to Grand View Lodge


If you’re like me, after this second dose of winter we just got you could really use a fun, relaxing getaway to look forward to. And I really can’t think of a much better place than Grand View Lodge in Nisswa. Yes, it’s still in Minnesota, but c’mon, with lakeside views, delicious dining, fine wines, spa treatments, and comfortable lodging—what more could you ask for? Sounds perfect.

Lucky for you, Grand View Lodge anticipated the need for this vacation and has created two different packages to choose from—All You Can Spa For a Day and Fork-n-Cork. And, even better for you, the lodge teamed up with Minnesota Monthly to be able to offer each of these packages to one lucky winner for free!

To celebrate the Glacial Waters Spa’s 10th anniversary, the All You Can Spa For a Day package features two nights deluxe lodging with breakfast and one day of 50-minute unlimited spa services. So get ready to be pampered with facials, a deep tissue massage, mud wrap, and mani-pedi.

If you’d rather wine and dine, the Fork-n-Cork package also includes two nights lodging, plus a $200 dining card to Cru, the Lodge Dining Room or Northwoods Pub, and a bottle of Grand View’s signature wine.

Even if you don’t win, you can still partake in one of these awesome getaways. The All You Can Spa For a Day package runs for $319/person, or $250/person for just a day at the spa. For Fork-n-Cork, it’s $299/two people/two nights and $79 for any additional nights. (See what an amazing deal this contest is?!)

So what are you waiting for? Enter now!
