Vacationers started traveling to Minnesota’s Lake Country back at the turn-of-the-20th-century even though the trek was arduous via train and horse-drawn livery. But they were drawn to the picturesque, unspoiled beauty of the area, including the stunningly beautiful Pine Beach Peninsula of Gull Lake.
From that basic yearning to get in touch with the natural splendor of the area eventually would come what is known today as Madden’s on Gull Lake, Minnesota’s ‘classic’ resort.
Quality is our No. 1 priority at Madden’s. Like others among Minnesota’s most famous resorts, Madden’s has distinguished itself by an emphasis on gracious hospitality, quality and diversity. Whether expressed by Madden’s introduction of new recreational activities, its rebuilding and refurbishing program that has upgraded even the oldest accommodations to meet the standards and expectations of guests, or the addition of The Spa and The Classic at Madden’s, a common thread can be traced throughout: “Our philosophy, ” says Thuringer, “is simply to provide the best that Minnesota has to offer.”
