1. So Much To Do
My family stayed for the first time in the winter of 2010. We could not believe all the things that the resort had to offer!! I have very active kids. I have a hard time keeping them entertained at most places we go. When we went to Cragun’s we had more than enough to do our entire stay! My husband and I were able to relax by the pool while the kids swam. The food was excellent and the horse driven sleigh was a hit by all!! Best of all…my boys became closer as brothers this weekend!!

2. Girls’ Weekend With My “Sis”
On December 1st, 2015 one of my best friends from childhood passed away in a tragic car accident. We were born a year and a day apart, our mothers are best friends, we grew up side by side, and she was the closest thing to a sister that I have ever had. One of our best memories was the girls’ weekend we spent at Cragun’s resort with our moms before we both graduated from high school. We spent our weekend relaxing by the pool, watching movies in our hotel room, walking around the resort, enjoying the wonderful breakfast bar, and even trying out the tennis courts. It was the last time all four of us were able to spend time together without our brothers and fathers around to bother us. If I win the Cragun’s vacation getaway, I hope that our moms will be able to have a girls’ weekend together.

3. Behind The Scenes Tour
My family and I used to visit Cragun’s on a regular basis when I was a child. I am now 31, married and have two kids of my own. I haven’t been to Cragun’s in over 15 years, but we just booked a vacation for February. I now live in Florida and it’s tough to get back to Minnesota, but I want my kids to experience the same fun that I did when I was a child. One of the funniest and unique memories that I had when we visited there was when I got a “behind the scenes” tour of the resort by a night time janitor. I was in the kids club while my parents were out for dinner. There weren’t many other children there at the time and I was a bit bored. The janitor showed up to clean and asked if I could help. Me being only 7 or 8, obviously said yes. He then gave me a tour of the resort that I never forgot. It was the little things like that, a little personal interest by someone who doesn’t get a lot of respect for the job he does, that made long lasting memory of Cragun’s. That was just one experience that I remember, there are a lot more that make that place special, especially the fishing on Gull lake. I hope it’s the same as I remember when we get there in February!

4. Such A Blast
We had such a blast coming up to Cragun’s for our church retreat in high school. We had so much fun with all the activities that was available to us in the winter. I will always remember this retreat as the best one we ever had.
