Big Sandy Lodge & Resort is not just your average Up North vacation experience.

Located just 2 hours north of the Twin Cities, 1 hour west of the Twin Ports and 45 minutes south of Grand Rapids,
it’s a premier Minnesota resort community located in the heart of northern Minnesota’s vacationland on
Big Sandy Lake. You will find more than you’ve ever dreamed!

Big Sandy Lodge is a perfect combination of a lakeside retreat with comfortable accommodations.
Book your stay for a special night, romantic getaway, stay-cation or a special event.

While here you’ll enjoy great dining in our lakeside Bear’s Den and Pines Dining Room.
An expansive 3-tiered deck provides just the right atmosphere for a delicious dinner outside or a quiet escape with a favorite book and cup of coffee.

In addition to the dining, you’ll find the indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna a great way to unwind after a refreshing day in Minnesota’s North Country.
There’s also a fitness center and a media center. Bring your own games or check out our bean bags and play down by the lake.
