15% room discount for VETERANS!
When you make a lodging reservation at Cragun's this spring, summer or fall, during the Sunday-Thursday period, identify yourself with your name, rank and serial number. Ask for the room block we're reserving especially for veterans and you'll receive a 15% discount off your lodging cost. Discounts are not available on "vacation packages".
The Pine Beach area of Gull Lake was spotted early in the 1930s as a recreational development site and has since become one of Minnesota's primary vacation areas.
Gradual growth continued, both in services and accommodations. Cragun's first food service with a dining room that seated twenty was begun in 1948. The first six motel-type units were built in 1949. In 1957, Merrill K. Jr. "Dutch" took over as manager and the building continued incrementally every year. The outdoor swimming pool was opened in 1963. In 1965, Dutch acquired a partner, his wife, Irma. Together, they committed to making a living at "resorting" by continually re-investing in order to develop a year-round operation.
The property now covers 4500 feet of shoreline, has over 300 employees, hosts many conferences and continues to make "friends and memories" for many vacationers, just as it did in 1940. The growth continues as we see the completion of the 45 hole Robert Trent Jones Jr Golf Course, The Legacy Courses at Cragun's.
While we try to keep our website updated, military and veteran discounts can change at a moments notice. Always check with the business to ensure the discount is still valid, and what ID(s) are acceptable for proof of service. Always have your proof of service available when redeeming a military discount.
