What to Do on Your MN Fall Getaway

What to Do on Your MN Fall Getaway

You might think the only time for a getaway in Minnesota is in the height of Summer, but as the air cools down and the leaves magically transform into vibrant hues of red and gold, the vacation possibilities are still just as enticing. Suddenly, a cup of coffee that warms you down to your toes tastes just a little better, and the heat from an evening bonfire feels even more inviting. Even if a dip in the lake isn’t possible, there are plenty of activities to keep kids and adults alike entertained.

Choose This or That from the options below to start planning your MN Fall Getaway at Madden’s!

Start your Day

This: Morning Pontoon Cruise

The mornings might start brisk, but once the sun peeks out all you need is a couple layers and a warm blanket to feel comfy and cozy–even out on the lake. Stop at Madden Bros Market for specialty coffee, then hop aboard for a tranquil morning cruise around Steamboat Bay on Gull Lake.

That: Watch the Sunrise from Shore

Not quite ready to head out on the lake? The views are just as great from the shore. Stay in the comfort of your room and bask in the morning sunshine from your balcony or get a few steps in as you stroll down and grab a seat on the beach.

Get Moving

This: Hit the Course

For many, a trip to Madden’s wouldn’t be complete without at least one round of golf. Whether you’re looking for a challenge on The Classic or simply want to enjoy some time on The Social 9, a few hours spend on the golf course is time well spent.

That: Rent a Bike

Not a golfer? Not a problem. You can find plenty to keep you busy and active at Madden’s Tennis & Croquet Club, and it’s also where you can rent a bike and explore the area’s nature trails. The East Gull Lake Trail is just right for a midday ride.

Take Some Time to Dine

This: Keep It Casual at the 19th Hole

Head up to Madden Inn for a quick bite at the 19th Hole. Dine inside, at the bar, or on the patio deck if the sun is shining. It’s the perfect stop if you just finished a round at Pine Beach East.

That: Keep it Classic at The Classic Grill

Looking for more of an experience when you dine? The Classic Grill offers an upscale menu with golf course views. Rated in the top 10 restaurants in Brainerd on TripAdvisor, The Classic Grill is a must-do on your visit to Madden’s.

Be Adventurous

This: Axe Throwing

Looking to try something a little different? Axe throwing is a great activity for couples or small groups that’s a little challenging and a lot of fun.

That: Trap Shooting

Test your aim! Reserve a time to meet at Madden’s trapshooting range where an instructor will guide your group through the sport of trapshooting.
