Smoking Policies
In compliance with the Freedom to Breathe and Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act, all indoor facilities at our Brainerd resort, including all sleeping rooms, cabins, decks and public areas have been designated smoke free. Smoking in a non-smoking unit is a misdemeanor and the smoker will pay $300 in damages to get the room back to its smoke-free condition. State law provides that if an offender does not reimburse the innkeeper in 30 days, a $100 civil penalty may be added as well as reasonable attorney fees up to $500.

No Pet Policy
Pets are not allowed on Cragun’s premises (with the exception of service animals).  Leave your pet at home or call us prior to your arrival for a list of area kennels. Violation of the pet policy will result in pet eviction and a minimum charge of $300 for any damage and cleaning of the room.
