1. Unforgettable Weekend

It was January 1992. On a Friday, we stopped at the family cabin on Gull to see what it was like in winter. We then went to Cragun’s for the weekend. The kids were 8 and 6. In the first 45 minutes, we toured the entire place and even played basketball and then went swimming. Constant activity. On Saturday, we went ice skating, sled dog rides and hay rides. After dinner Saturday night, the kids went downstairs for the children’s program while my husband and I walked on the ice, listened to the thunder of the lake and sipped champagne. We then went in to listen to the country band. A child came up from downstairs and was so flushed his mom asked if he was ok. Then another child, same story. We were concerned. Up came our kids also flushed from playing. As the story goes, the counselors were all set to watch a Disney movie when my son (and I hope other kids) said we’re not watching a movie—we’re playing. And so they did! On Sunday, after check out, we headed for Ski Gull for the afternoon and then home to St. Paul. It was only a weekend but felt like a week’s vacation. Cragun’s facilities, staff and just everything about the weekend was unforgettable. Now, almost 17 years later, that same son is thinking about his wedding at Cragun’s next summer! How fun is that?

2. More Fun in the Snow Than Ever

I brought a Danish foreign exchange student to Minnesota for a 2-day stay at Cragun’s and took advantage of the Sledder Special. We had fun zooming around locally for a while but eventually we wanted to check out the trails to the north. It took us a little while to find it but once we hit the Paul Bunyan Trail we had more fun in the snow than I ever had jet-skiing back home in Florida. I can’t wait to get back there again for more of the same! The staff at Cragun’s is very friendly and the gear rental, including suits, helmets and boots was a breeze and access to the snowmobile trails from Cragun’s is a snap.

3. Got Down on One Knee

The golf was interesting, the spa relaxing, the food so tasty and rememorable, I loved Cragun’s. I bought a beautiful diamond ring, 12 red roses, my girl’s favorite coffee and then got down on one knee and proposed. She said yes!

We would love to rejoice at Cragun’s again!

All Snug in Our Cabin

Our latest Cragun’s memory is from this past New Year’s weekend. We rented a huge cabin and packed it full with 4 couples and all our young children. The weather was terrible and we didn’t think we were going to be able to make it up but we were bound and determined and didn’t want to let the kids down. Due to the weather my husband who plows didn’t think he was going to be able to make it but after a five hour drive in the weather he surprised all of us and our kids by wrapping on the cabin window just before midnight.

The kids had so much fun running around the cabin, going to the magic show, swimming and hunting for the medallion while us adults relaxed in front of the fireplace and played games once they were all snug in their beds. The snow was beautiful, the temp absolutely chilling but we were all snug in our cabin surrounded with our loved ones and our closest friends. What more could you ask for?
