Visit the Blog once a month for Venue Highlight. Here, we look at different Minnesota properties, often reaching back into our archives and revisiting a Location Location or Spaces department from the magazine.
How Minnesotan is this? This year, Grand View Lodge started offering an ice house as a place to hold your meeting. Lil' Grand View on Gull sits out on Gull Lake behind Grand View. It's twice the size of a regluar fish house, with eight bunks and bathroom. A conference table drops from the ceiling (easily out of the way when you want to fish), its Wi-Fi enabled, has a TV and a mini kitchen, and room service is delivered right to the door.
Next year, Grand View has plans add two or three more similar fish houses - perfect for breakout sessions! And at less than $300 for 24 hours, which includes all the fishing gear, it's quite the deal.
How clever! Watch the below WCCO video for more information.
