2. An Absolute Blast?
3. Best Easter Ever?
4. Snowmobiling–Love To Do It Again?
November 2012 we saw an ad for a “Romantic Getaway” at Cragun’s Resort. We both LOVE Northern MN and short getaways; especially in the middle of winter. We arrived on Feb. 1 and our long-awaited getaway was under way. We enjoyed one of the Shoreline Suites with a Jacuzzi in the room…AWESOME!! I had always wanted to go to Cragun’s and my dream had finally come true, however, little did I know, but my DREAM was about to become more than I could ever have imagined. Like I said before, it started on Feb. 1st and that evening my boyfriend had a gift for me–a silver cross and heart necklace. Simply beautiful, I said I will wear this all weekend. We went for dinner, played bingo with other resort guests–VERY FUN! Even won a game. Saturday, we took part in the sleigh ride–very cozy and what a fabulous way to see the grounds of Cragun’s being pulled behind 2 majestic and gorgeous Clydesdale horses. We had a couple of hours before our Romantic Dinner at the Legacy Courses Clubhouse, so we decided to take a nap. My boyfriend got up about an hour before we needed to leave to take a shower. I was going to lie there and watch TV until he was finished. To my surprise, he came over and got me up and brought me into the living room…he had turned on the fireplace, had an adult beverage ready for me, brought me a blanket to cover up with while he got ready. He then came back to where I was sitting and said I have one more gift for you. I opened it up and it was a gold heart necklace with diamonds. I didn’t know what to say. Again, it was BEAUTIFUL!! He then said, “I have an accessory to go with the necklace.” He got down on one knee and proposed to me with a stunning engagement ring. The way I describe our weekend, is “I arrived at Cragun’s Resort a Girlfriend and left a Fiance’.” Cragun’s will FOREVER hold a special place in our hearts. We will be back again and again and again to celebrate the start of our life together. Our room/suite was #286. This is the room/suite we will always request. The two represents, February, the 2nd month and 86 is the year we both graduated from high school. Thank you to all the staff at Cragun’s Resort for making our stay PHENOMONAL!!

I was at Cragun’s with my family at a very young age. I don’t remember a lot about the trip, only that we were with our family friends. I remember having rented the Kitty Kat snowmobiles and getting to drive those for the first time. I also remember running across the grounds in our swim suits in the cold to get to the pool. It was an absolute blast from what I remember. I would love to come back!

I spent Easter Weekend at Cragun’s with my children, mother and sister’s family! It was the best Easter ever from the wonderful Welcome Dinner on Friday to the Sunday brunch. A weekend full of fun activities for the whole family–from horse drawn wagon rides, Bingo, beach games, pontoon rides, and swimming. And the funny, funny song my brother-in-law sang at Karoake. Cragun’s thanks for the memories!

I had not been snowmobiling in years and some friends of mine wanted to go. So, I decided to give it a shot and rented Cragun’s snowmobiles and full gear for a great price–excellent equipment. I thought I would be cold, but not at all. We started out Saturday morning and went for hours. We made a few stops on the way and ate lunch at a very nice bar and grill. Really enjoyed myself and would love to do it again. The rooms are nice and the food is great. Love the pool.
