I want to thank you for your wonderful accommodations for Nate and Regan’s wedding! The lodge is a beautiful place! It’s so homey and comfortable! The cabins were great too. And I so appreciate your accommodating manner whenever I had questions or requests. You have been so willing to grant our every request and make the environment very family friendly- even to providing shelter for 5 dogs! Every conversation I have had with you has been very pleasant and helpful. You have been a joy to work with! Thank you so much!

I hosted a surprise 40th birthday party for my husband at the Cottage. The Cottage is beautiful and very accommodating with too many extras to name and the scenery is breathtaking. This is a GREAT place to host a number of events and I look forward to being there again!

We want you to know that we had a great family reunion at Granite Springs over Labor Day week-end. So glad we found out about your place when we were searching on line for a place East River that would work for our family. We want to say thank you for all you did for us to make it a great stay and also appreciated the use of the game room on Saturday night. Our families sure enjoyed the kayaks, canoe, paddle boat and fishing that was available. You have an awesome place there and we will be back to enjoy it some year when it is my turn to host the family reunion again.

I just returned from my trip to the Granite Springs Lodge and was so impressed! Our son in law is being transferred to Mitchell, SD. Myself and 7 family members came to look at new homes with our daughter and son-in-law. The lodge had approx. 8,000 SF, 9 bedrooms that sleeps 40+ people. A full kitchen, dining room, living room, 2 bathrooms, one equipped with a full shower and whirlpool tub, the other full sized bathroom with a shower/tub combo. We cooked every meal in the lodge. There are several decks overlooking the back of the lodge, walking trails, a lake, fire pits, a creek with foot bridge. Many views, bald eagles, geese, ducks, deer, turkeys, and many more animals to enjoy while sipping your morning coffee. Need to hold a family reunion, wedding reception, baby shower, bridal shower, or any other gathering? There’s also a large commercial kitchen located next to a huge seating area perfect for hosting an event. Brian, one of the owners, is quite personable, friendly and very accommodating. I’d recommend the lodge to anybody. It’s an awesome place to visit, and only 15 minutes outside of Mitchell, SD.

Granite Springs Lodge is a hidden treasure and we had a blast getting away from everything. The accommodations and privacy were perfect! The multiple large dining and living room areas made it possible for our entire family to have a relaxing and memorable weekend. We were there during the winter and the view was still incredible of the lake area. The owners were also very accommodating and easy to work with. Great place owned and operated by great people.

We hosted our wedding at Granite Springs Lodge in December of 2013. We had about 80 people at our wedding. The lodge was very clean when we arrived to set-up and decorate. The lodge didn’t need much decorating though! Nonetheless we had the whole day to set up and we found everything we needed. We set up a few extra folding tables in the living room and everyone fit comfortably with room to move about. We were allowed to bring in whatever food, beverages, and sound equipment we wanted– which was simply awesome. The industrial size kitchen allowed us to prepare some food on our own and store it in the large refrigerator. Food service worked very well. We put appetizers on each table, the main dishes on the buffet line, desserts in the small kitchen, and had several different beverage stations. The coffee machine in the lodge worked very well, it even had a hot water dispenser so we set out teas and hot coco powder next to it. I forgot a few serving utensils, but found them in the kitchen. The lodge owners made it very clear we could use anything in the lodge. The way that kitchen was stocked I probably could’ve forgotten everything! The best thing about the lower level rooms had to be the two rooms with the extra beds. Each room had at least 2 queens, but one of the rooms had an additional bed and another room had an additional bunk bed. AND there’s a large room on the main level that held six. This was great for the larger families. The morning after the wedding we hosted a breakfast (which we made in the kitchen) and gift opening event as the lodge was flexible on the check out time. The staff was incredible. Leading up to the event, I stopped by multiple times to show different people the lodge. Each time, I simply called ahead and picked a time that fit my schedule. When I showed up with new people, they were given the same tour I received when I first visited. Brian answered the same questions I had asked previously and was hands down the most accommodating person I have ever worked with. Brian returned all my e-mails and calls very promptly with very straightforward, informative answers. Our wedding went seamlessly. It was everything I had pictured– nothing beats a lodge wedding near Christmas! It had a very warm/comfortable feel, everyone had a great time, I married my best friend, and I couldn’t have asked for more. I would highly recommend Granite Springs Lodge for any event– winter or summer.
