Having grown up in the resort business, Jeff Anderson and son Quinn, age 17, and Harper, age 5, love sharing the best Leech Lake has to offer with their guests. Jeff knows how important family time is and enjoys making sure that your vacation is memorable for all.
Grand Vu was first established in 1945 as Prince Jackson resort. Grand Vu was the third resort acquired by the Anderson Family. Originally it was bought by Marty & Edie Anderson & Jeff Anderson in the fall of 1994. Marty & Edie retired & sold the entire resort to Jeff.
Jeff joined the Minnesota Army National Guard Infantry in 1993. He was deployed to Bosnia from 2003 – 2004 and to Iraq from 2005- 2007. He retired in August 2014 after 21 years of service.
Hi Friends, We want you to come winter and summer. We’ll be here to welcome you any time of the year. It is our 24th year at Grand Vu, one of six Anderson family resorts. We love it here in the North Country and we are working year-round to give you the great vacation you deserve. We hope you’ll come and see for yourself why our guests find it hard to leave this special place! Grand Vu is a place to relax and unwind and we’re working hard to make sure your vacation is the best ever!
Sincerely, Jeff, Quinn (age 17), Harper (age 5) & the Grand Vu Crew
