Surprisingly, we’re only two months from the most romantic day of the year. Valentine’s Day (February 14) is the perfect opportunity to treat the love of your life to a spontaneous escape into the peaceful Northern Minnesota wilderness. There’s something genuinely romantic about a stroll under falling snow, fireplace snuggles, and a homecooked candlelit dinner. Big Sandy Lodge & Resort has quickly become one of the premier romantic getaways in MN, thanks to our spacious cabins, surrounding natural beauty, and relaxing on-site amenities. Treat your best friend to a passionate Valentine’s Day escape to Big Sandy Lake this February!

Romantic Getaways in MN

Whether you’re searching for an outdoor winter wonderland adventure or a cozy weekend at one of the premier Minnesota lodges, Big Sandy Lodge & Resort can accommodate any desired romantic getaway. We’re one of the only Northern Minnesota resorts to stay open during the wintertime, thus making us a premier snowmobiling, ice fishing, and cross-country skiing destination for adventurous couples. Of course, if you’re looking for a quiet weekend of steaming hot chocolate, whimsical romantic comedies, and peaceful slumber, then look no further than Big Sandy Lodge & Resort.

Homecooked Candlelight Dinner

Surprise your significant other with their favorite meal for Valentine’s Day. Or, perhaps a couples cook-off is exactly the spark that your romantic holiday needs. We don’t presume to know your tastebuds or dietary restrictions, but we highly recommend freshly-caught, pan-seared Big Sandy Lake walleye combined with Minnesota-grown wild rice, grilled cherry tomatoes, and crisp asparagus. You don’t have to be a “chef de cuisine” to impress your lovebird this Valentine’s Day – it’s the thought that counts! The pan-seared walleye should be paired with a bottle of prized wine from Minnestalgia, Blackhoof Estate, or DeCorsa Vineyard, our three area wineries.
