My family took a vacation from the Twin Cities to Canary Beach Resort and from the moment we arrived we felt like family. The hosts are gracious, inviting, and very personable. We enjoyed the swimming, water toys, beach, shuffle board, and more. The fireplace in our cabin was a huge bonus, and the quarters were very inviting and clean. We... More

We were looking for somewhere close to stay and snowmobile from without going way up to northern MN. By some miracle I stumbled on Canary Resort just about 15 miles south of Alexandria just of highway 29. It was less than a 3 hour drive from home. Christine extremely accommodating and helpful on the phone...even when we had to delay... More

My group booked the Robin's View for a bachelorette weekend. Right away we were welcomed and felt at home. The cabin was gorgeous, spacious, and fantastic for a relaxing weekend. The kitchen was fully stocked with tools, the lake was pristine, and the owners were more than accomodating. We were taken for a private (adult) hayride that was one of... More

We camped and went fishing nearly everyday. Quiet and clean campground with great service. During our stay our vehicle broke down and Scott (the manager) was more than willing to shuttle us around to the auto shop and boat landing to minimize the impact to our vacation. He even took his truck to lake Amelia to get our boat and... More

Canary Beach Resort in Villard, MN We arrived on June 26th From Lansdale, Pennsylvania. We stopped in the lodge to check in where we were greeted by the owners Harold & Rosemarie Kraft and Scott & Christine Olschlager. Canary Beach Resort is family owned and operated. I guess that is why we were treated "like family." That is what makes... More

we stayed the 4th of July week. The beach was wonderful even though the lake is up. we stayed in one of the new two bedroom cabins. It was a joy to view the fireworks from the upper level. This is a great family vacation place.

We stayed at the resort two years ago and it was nice, but now it is really nice. We stayed in the new Raven’s Haven cabin. It was by far the best cabin I have ever stayed in. It had flat screen TVs, DVD and Satellite. The beds were comfortable and the AC worked fine. The kids really loved all... More

We stayed here while deer hunting in the area this fall. The cabin was very clean with good beds. There was lots of room in the cabin to store all of our belongings. The fire place and cable tv were a plus. The owners ( Christine and Scott) went out of their way to make our stay comfortable.

This is the 3rd time I have been at Canary Beach Resort and I never leave disappointed! They continue to make improvements to the resort and add new fun things for kids! This is the first time that I have been there in the winter and the lake is just as much fun frozen for the kids (and us adults!!)!... More

We stayed in the campground, so I cannot comment on the cabin rentals at this resort. Pros: The swim beach was one of the best we've ever used in the Midwest. The water was clean and clear. The beach was nice and sandy. They had many things for kids to do in the water such as little boats they could... More

Thank you for taking your time with this review and the positive comments! Since we are a small family business, I remember your family well and personally helped with your telephone reservation and check-in/check-out. Our greatest asset at Canary Beach Resort is our beach, over 900 feet of sandy shoreline just perfect for relaxing or making a sandcastle! We do... More
