Recite your heartfelt vows on the banks of the azure blue Big Sandy Lake with the natural fragrance of the surrounding coniferous trees. If you’ve ever visited McGregor MN, then you know why it’s a truly magical place: effortless serenity, genuinely friendly neighbors, a vast wilderness, and alluring lakewater. Take the stress out of planning a Northern Minnesota wedding by choosing Big Sandy Lodge & Resort. Our sizable facilities and gorgeous landscape fit any wedding theme, and you’ll never have to leave the property!

Exquisite Ceremony

We always encourage the bride and groom to be creative. There are endless ceremony location possibilities at Big Sandy Lodge & Resort. While most couples choose a lakefront ceremony under a white handmade arbor, others have recited their vows in the Pines Room, on the ground-level concrete patio, or the main floor wooden patio. Regardless of where you choose to be pronounced man and wife, the soothing sounds of the waves, birds, and rustling trees will put your mind at ease.

Memorable Reception

Say “I do” at the beach then celebrate 50 feet away in the Northwoods Room. While you catch your breath and pose for photos, your guests can freshen up in their nearby lodges then indulge in a beer or cocktail in this 1,500 square foot ground level room. The Northwoods Room has a stunningly crafted fireplace, a private bar, and a concrete patio overlooking Big Sandy Lake. The Northwoods Room is an organically dim light room with beautiful wooden built-ins perfect for rope lights and ceiling drapes. We also offer delicious onsite catering options! The Pines Room is a smaller, equally picturesque banquet hall on the main floor. Both rooms are the top two reception options in McGregor MN.

Comfortable and Convenient Lodging

Planning a wedding doesn’t have to be stressful and complicated if you select a location with ceremony, reception, and lodging options. Most guests will forever remember one thing: your reception, good or bad. If you choose Big Sandy Lodge & Resort, there’s no need for your guests to plan a sober ride or worry about a long midnight drive back to a hotel or home. You and your lucky guests will only have to walk up the stairs or across the lawn.
