Special Care In Planning Our Event

“As a planner of many events, your coordinating staff made my job much easier. With their knowledge and experience, we were able to save time and money. They took special care in planning our event as if it was their own. They listened to our special needs and exceeded our expectation. Your meeting, exhibit space, and sleeping accommodations are large and spacious.”

Lodging Accommodations Are Roomy

“We have booked a winter weekend for our family almost every year. It is a great place…there are many activities for both adults and children…lodging accommodations are roomy, and we are not at all cramped in our cabin. This is a great value for our money.”

A Memorable Vacation

“This is our first visit to Cragun’s Resort. The service has been excellent at the resort and the Legacy Golf Courses. Everyone is very helpful and friendly. It was a real treat to be met at your car, given a golf cart, and have your clubs put on the cart. At the end of you game, met by a friendly face and had your clubs wiped off and put in your car. This will be a memorable vacation and hopefully we’ll be back.”

Wonderful Resort for Families with Small Children

“What a wonderful resort for families with small children. The playground on the beach was just what the kids needed! Shallow clear water, pontoons for our family to go for a ride, horse drawn trolleys! This place is a families dream!”

Great Detail Put Into Our Meeting

“Being at a secluded resort enabled our board to run free with ideas without the distractions of the office or hometown. We met all the goals of our meeting and had time to network with colleagues. Cragun’s had a variety of activities to suit everyone’s taste. Thank you for the great detail you put into our meeting, you made the smallest of meetings turn into an event that we’ll remember for a long time.”

Even the iconic Dutch Cragun greeted us!

“We had a really nice dining experience at Irma’s kitchen. The food was tasty and appealing to the eye. The view overlooking Gull Lake is beautiful. Even the iconic Dutch Cragun greeted us at our table and inquired about our meal. Dutch…thanks for Knuckles and the Squirrel. We will visit again.”

The Resort Was Perfect

“Just want to send a note of THANK YOU!!! I’m still hearing from family about how much fun they had and how wonderful Cragun’s was. Here are some of the comments: “The resort was perfect, plenty to do, big rooms, good food, and on a great lake.” “I got 3 hours of complaining how they “didn’t want to leave Minnesota” on the drive back to the Twin Cities”. “I’m now hearing talk amongst the Charlton “grapevine” that we’ve found “The Reunion Place” and that a return trip makes a lot of sense in 2-3 years.” “What an amazing vacation we had! I went to work and told everybody who even slightly inquired how MN was and told them what a terrific time we all had! Nobody could believe it! I think they all thought I would come back looking like a giant mosquito bite!” Again, thank you so much for your help and even putting up with me. I get the impression we’ll be back.”

As ever the best steaks in town!

“Great to have Irma’s Kitchen open for the season. Checked out the newly remodeled lounge last night, nice modern rustic feel and new deck. We enjoyed some live music, as ever the best steaks in town. A mix of favorites and new items on the menu. If you eat nothing else have the crispy pork belly and scallops social plate, wow, served on blue corn grits, I discovered I can love grits, who knew? Great food, relaxed vibe, we’ll be back, if you love food this is where you should be eating.”

Activities Were Fantastic

“Activities were fantastic – ice bowling, kitty cat snowmobiles, trolley rides. The New Year’s Eve party in the Sports Centre was so much fun! We stayed there all night with the kiddos and they loved it! We visit Cragun’s every year over 4th of July, but this was our first winter trip. Loved it! Thank you!“
