The Northwoods Adventure Trip - Beatrice Bradley

TRAVEL TO THE NORTHWOODS

The Land of 10,000 Lakes in Minnesota

THE NORTHWOODS EXPERIENCE

June 4 – 8, 2023

We have put together a great visit to the beautiful Brainerd lakes area of Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 lakes. This has been a tourist favorite for many, many years and luckily we have secured accommodations at The Historic Grandview Lodge Resort on beautiful Gull Lake. Water activities, biking through the lovely wooded areas, scenic pontoon boat rides and intimate, lakeside dinners are all part of this wonderful experience. Grandview Lodge is a full service resort with an aquatic center for heated pool swimming and a beautiful beach at the lake. All the equipment you need to play in the water or on land is provided and when you want some down time you can visit their famous spa.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can not find an arrival flight before designated arrival window?

Our trips are typically only 4-6 days in length so we really try to make the most out of our time together. The first night we host a special Welcome Dinner where you really kick off the fun and start to get acquainted. However, we understand that it is not always possible to find a flight that works. There are a few options.

1. let our team know ASAP and it’s possible we can accommodate for it. In some situations there is a hotel shuttle or taxi that can be taken. However, some airports are too far from our destination for shuttle or taxi services, so it is important that you let our team know ASAP
2. Arrive a day early

  • You will be responsible for your own transportation and hotel arrangements during that time
  • Please let our team know if you would like to stay at the same hotel and we can help arrange it

What if I can not find a departure flight before designated departure window?
