The Lodge is conveniently located at the heart of the Giants Ridge Recreation Area, home to the best selection of outdoor recreation amenities Minnesota has to offer. Two of the nation’s highest-ranked public golf courses, the Legend and the Quarry lie to the north and south of the Lodge. An outdoor climbing wall and alpine, cross country, mountain bike and hiking trails are all literally right out the Lodge’s back door.

Hundreds of miles of snowmobile, ATV and paved bike trails can be directly accessed from the Lodge. The state’s only Off Highway Vehicle Park, featuring 35 miles of off-roading adventure for ATVs, side-by-sides, Jeeps and dirt bikes is just 7 miles away in Gilbert. There’s something for boaters and paddlers, too. Sabin, Wynne and Mine lakes are within ¼ of a mile to 3 miles of the Lodge, and all feature public boat launches with ample trailer parking.

“The Minnesota Sports/Ski Council spent a three day ski weekend at Giant’s Ridge Lodge and Ski Resort. The participants were from five ski clubs in the Minnesota area. The accommodations were wonderful and the staff was exceedingly professional and helpful in every way. Food was plentiful, hot, and appetizing. We got rave reviews from the club participants and they are hoping we return. The skiing was great, and the runs were groomed to perfection when we arrived on Friday. We would absolutely suggest Giant’s Ridge to spend quality time as a couple, family, or large group!”

“I stayed here on a business trip and to attend a 2-day training. This is a wonderful hotel. The suites are large and well appointed. They are very clean and comfortable. The food is excellent. Most importantly, the staff members are terrific. They allowed extra-time for check-out, asked if our room was sufficient, and responding quickly to requests. The staff, like the facility, are warm and welcoming. I wish I could have stayed longer.”

“We stayed the weekend and had a great time. Super friendly, good accommodations. Golf courses are stunning. Two couples rented 2 bedroom condo. Decent space and amenities good but rooms didn’t have windows, so a little hot at night. Learned on way out that property is under new management, so older bad online reviews reflect former property management. We recommend to stay here and will be back ourselves!”

“We stayed overnight Wednesday. Since we had the following day off from work we decided to head “up north” to Duluth from Minneapolis. The Priceline website listed this hotel as one in the Duluth area (Biwabik is on the iron range, about 50 miles away or so). We have never stayed in a hotel accommodation quite like this one. It had very high ceilings (for the giants maybe?), very tastefully decorated in cabin/lodge style. There was a jetted hot tub and shower, kitchenette with glasses, plates, silverware, etc., a super comfortable leather couch in front of the TV, and a separate bedroom with gas fireplace. We slept well on the very comfortable bed. It was fun to go there in the off season. It was late for golf and the snow had not come or been made yet. This place must be a blast during high season.”

“On a recent trip through northern Minnesota, we were very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful and high quality lodgings we found at the Lodge at Giant’s Ridge. We had not been there before, but definitely plan to come again.”

“We recently hosted a workshop at Giants Ridge, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Giants Ridge was a wonderful conference venue. The rooms are spacious, the group rates are reasonable, and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. The staff was very accommodating and made meeting planning nice and straightforward.”
