Five Reasons to Fall for Madden’s

Five Reasons to Fall for Madden’s

Summer has faded into autumn and the fall colors in Minnesota are beginning to pop.

Plan your fall color tour to Brainerd and take in the brilliant display of reds, oranges, and golds. And while you’re here, take time to enjoy all that Madden’s on Gull Lake has to offer. Whether you are up for an adventure or looking for some down time, Madden’s offers fun fall activities for kids, the best golf in Minnesota, and a distinctive lakeside spa.

Here are our top five reasons to visit Madden’s this fall:

1. Hiking and biking trails

Miles of paved hiking and biking trails have been carved into the forest and around the lakes, perfect for a morning run, an afternoon stroll, or an all-day biking excursion. For the more adventurous, try the Cuyuna Mountain Biking trails for a blood-pumping thrill and breathtaking vistas.

2. Fall golf

Cool temps, pristine course conditions, no bugs, what’s not to like? There is still plenty of time to get your last rounds of the season in. If you’re looking for the best golf deal in Brainerd, purchase our Play It All pass and get one round on each of our 4 courses–Pine Beach East, Pine Beach West, Social 9, and The Classic, a Golf Digest Top 100 public golf course–for just $99 (carts additional)!

3. Brewery tours

While you’re out and about, you’re going to work up a thirst. The Brainerd area is bursting with breweries, go ahead and give them a try!

4. The Spa at Madden’s

What could be more relaxing than wrapping up in a cozy robe and gazing at the waves lapping at the shore. The Spa at Madden’s sits just steps from the lake and offers a full menu of services and special seasonal treatments.

If the season has you craving everything pumpkin-spiced, try a Perky Pumpkin Radiance Boosting Facial, a Spiced Cider Pumpkin Pedi, and a Sea Salt Honey-Pumpkin Rub.

5. MEA Weekend, October 18-21

School is in full swing and the kids’ activity schedules have everyone running in different directions. Pull the family together this MEA weekend at Madden’s. Enjoy a full weekend of Halloween-themed activities including a costume contest, pumpkin carving, and even a kids’ trick-or-treat parade!

Cherish this time–while the kids still want to dress up–but hurry to make your reservations. MEA weekend will be a sell-out. Reserve online or call to reserve your room.

Minnesota in the fall is spectacular. Hop in the car and go for a drive to Madden’s to take in the fall foliage, your last round of golf, a local brewery tour, and so much more. Book your fall stay at Madden’s today.
