It’s become commonplace for couples from the Twin Cities, Twin Ports, and Iron Range to motor on up or over to serene Big Sandy Lake for a brief, albeit vital romantic getaway. It’s not a piece of cake to find a couples retreat in Minnesota that provides seclusion, lake access, romantic packages, recreational rentals, and log cabins. Big Sandy Lodge & Resort is the whole package. Not only can we foster a playful, passionate, and uninhibited escape, but we’re also one of the most affordable northern Minnesota resorts.
A couple of years ago, we wrote about a Big Sandy Lodge & Resort specialty: fall weddings. We briefly discussed ceremony possibilities, autumn-focused receptions, and on-site lodging. This time around, we’re going to dive a little deeper into what makes our particularly picturesque slice of the Midwest one of the premier Northern Minnesota wedding venues. Below, you’ll find a brief overview of the property, 10 on-site photo ideas, a look at the four seasons, and a handful of ways to start your long-overdue honeymoon!
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.
