    1. Wonderful Family Vacation

    After several years, we had the opportunity to enjoy another family vacation at Cragun’s. The boys faintly remembered their past visit with feeding the ducks and our favorite- the Medallion Hunt! (Which we tried again with no luck!) I’m sure they’ll remember the FootGolf on the beautiful Legacy course. Hopefully our next visit will include some true golf! Wonderful family vacation at a wonderful resort!

    3. Views Were Outstanding

    Beautiful lake views at Cragun's Resort on Gull Lake

    I brought my favorite customers into Cragun’s to fish, golf and relax for a fall weekend. The weather was spectacular, the bugs were gone for the season, and the fall colors were in full splendor. From the marina staff to the front desk, the service was outstanding and friendly. The fishing could have cooperated with us better, but an angler takes the good with the bad. We’ll be back!

    4. Love, Love, Love It At Cragun’s

    We have been coming to Cragun’s for about 20 years and some extra ones, too. We always bring the grand kids, our kids and then come once more in the fall to relax with my husband when the kids are all back in school. We love all the activities… FootGolf for the grand kids, the trolley rides, pontoon rides, the indoor and outdoor pools and the Sports Centre for the older grand kids to play a good game of tennis – they’ve got grandma and grandpa beat! We enjoy golf now, the little ones love the outdoor toddler pool and everyone loves the lake and the sand and the always well-tended campfires and all the other planned events such as the family bingo enjoyed by three generations. We love, love, love it there at Cragun’s. YOU are helping us make memories for our own kids and now our grand kids, too. Ooops and for my husband and I, too. Your resort is a blessing to us and to our family. We would send one of our many wonderful picture but this grandma and grandpa are not techies!! Or whatever you say.

    2. Feeding Time

    At Cragun’s, it’s all about kids, food, the lake and what you see. When you spend all day on, and in, Gull Lake, it soon becomes time to feed that hungry child. We were just floating on the pontoon when mom, dad and young loon family popped up right by us. It was feeding time and we just sat and watched mom and dad feed their little one. We also saw a bald eagle sitting on top of a boat lift and were very close to a Blue Heron standing on a dock. Lots of pictures. Speaking of food, we now have a new favorite restaurant in the Brainerd Lakes area – Irma’s Kitchen is a must. The food, service and atmosphere are exceptional. When we are in the Brainerd area again, we will be back. I need more of that pork belly!

    3. Wonderful Family Experience

    View from our cabin deck at Cragun's Resort

    Although my husband and I have been regular vacationers to the Gull Lake area this is the first time we brought my 15 year old daughter and her friend. We stayed in one of your wonderful lake view cabins. The cabin was clean and spacious and the rest of the amenities were terrific. We enjoyed splashing in the water and the girls loved the indoor Sports Centre where they could go to play volleyball at night. The view from our deck was amazing and it was so relaxing. Even with the bad storm in the middle of the night I wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks for a wonderful family experience!
