MINNESOTA’S CLASSIC RESORT
Located on a 1,000 acre peninsula in the heart of the Brainerd Lakes Area, Madden’s on Gull Lake is a luxury Minnesota resort that has been providing award-winning golf and accommodations to guests for over 90 years. Rich in history and tradition, Madden’s is one of few remaining Minnesota resorts that is family-owned and operated.

What does it mean to be Minnesota’s Classic Resort?
Remaining Minnesota’s “Classic” Resort requires a dedication to preserving the best of the way things used to be while continuously moving forward. Each year brings new improvements to facilities and offerings, but some things just withstand the test of time: hearing the morning call of the loon from the balcony; building sandcastles at the beach; winning family bingo for the first time. It’s quintessential Minnesota experiences like these that make Madden’s a resort destination that families return to year after year, generation after generation.
