We are proud to offer one of the finest resorts in the Alexandria area. Located on Lake Geneva and the famous Chain of Lakes, we cater to families and fishing enthusiasts. The spacious, flat sand beach is an absolute favorite among guests & includes complimentary use of stand up paddle boards, paddle boats, and kayaks. Two Aqua Jumps & a Water Whoosh keeps kids of all ages busy during the day, while free firewood and campfire pits offer the opportunity to settle in each night with your favorite people. Parents appreciate the wide open spaces that provide a safe, carefree environment (with two swing-sets to burn off some of that never-ending energy). Many of our guests never leave the resort, but if you do feel like getting out during your stay we are just minutes from local breweries, wineries, shopping destinations, and golf courses. Located directly on the Central Lakes Trail, you will be just steps away from 55 miles of walking, biking, and snowmobiling opportunities! Geneva Beach is located on Lake Geneva, part of the chain of lakes that wraps around the city of Alexandria. Fish for bass, pan, walleye and northern & clean your daily catch in our fish cleaning house located close to the docks and cabins. Kids love fishing right off our docks -- the clear water of Lake Geneva makes it possible to watch the fish bite your hook! Dock space is available for rent if you bring your own watercraft - or you can rent a fishing boat or pontoon from us! Our Lund fishing boats are PERFECT for exploring the chain of lakes, while our pontoons allow you to spend a relaxing day fishing and swimming on Lake Geneva! Sugarbush Lodge is our largest cabin boasting 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, and a private game room with pool table, ping pong, and foosball! At just under 6,000 square feet, the Sugarbush makes a perfect year-round destination for families, businesses, and friends! We have 16 additional cabins open May through August ranging in size from Lakeside Studios (sleeps 2-4) to our 4 bedroom Pineview Cottage (sleeps up to 14). Whichever cabin selected for your stay you will appreciate the fully equipped kitchen, Weber gas grill and picnic table for outdoor meals, A/C, free wifi, extended cable, and clean accommodations. Grab your favorite crew or come out on your own - every summer new friendships are formed at Geneva Beach sitting around the campfire. Geneva Beach Resort has been a vacation destination since 1883, and is the 2nd oldest summer resort in Minnesota. Craig and Cami Calhoun purchased the resort in 2019 after staying at the resort for many years as guests (Cami's family has spent a week at the resort every summer for over 30 years). Craig, Cami, and their two children loved their week at the cabin so much, they couldn't pass up the opportunity to make the resort their own. Book your stay now to experience a Geneva Beach summer for yourself!

Geneva Beach Resorts Sugarbush Lodge was perfect for our parents 50th wedding anniversary celebration. (4 days) Everyone was there and the lodge had accommodations for all (34). Both kitchens provided ample room for food and drinks. There was more than enough space inside and out for seating to eat, visit or just enjoy the perfect weather. Each bedroom had at least a queen size bed and either bunk beds, twin bed or a futon. There were at least 5 bathrooms with showers, one on the ground floor being perfect size for our handicapped mother. One of the bathrooms even had a tub and located with the laundry room. The basement floor accommodated one of the full kitchens along with a game room that had a pool table and ping pong table. A foosball table was located in the large living room that also had a fireplace. The resort has a beach with two water trampolines, paddle boats, kayaks, paddle boards and pontoon boat for rent which came in handy for cruising the lake. Several sizes of life jackets are located in the very clean two car garage. There are swing sets, grass volleyball court and a couple frisbee golf nets for outdoor activities. The owners were very accommodating making sure we had what we needed including firewood. The lodge looks like a house and has up to date decor, very clean and in great condition. If you are looking for a place for a family get together in the Alexandria area you really need to check out this place. You will feel right at home.

My husband and I love everything about this resort. It has everything we love to do: fishing, beach, kayaks, trail access for biking and walking. Besides the actual boats, everything comes with the basic lodging fee, so there aren't all these add-on costs. Owners Craig and Cami are friendly, helpful, and easily accessible. The property is kept up well, with potted flowers all over. We like being out of a city but still nearby restaurants, shops, and other activities. Our kids and grandchildren joined us for a few days, and they loved this resort as well. This is our second year coming here, and we already booked for next year.

The resort has new owners as of the 2019 season. They were very friendly and accommodating. The resort is in a prime location and very well maintained. The grounds and beach are meticulously cared for daily. The accommodations are quite nice and several options are available. The only negative (and is important to most people) is that check-out is 9:00am! That hardly gives a family time to get organized, pack, eat, etc. - they need to make it at least 10:00am - esp. since this is not a low budget resort.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Geneva Beach Resort! We enjoyed meeting all of the guests as new owners this past summer. We loved the resort so much as guests, we decided to buy it! Thanks for the suggestion on a later check-out time. With flipping the resort in one day, we need as much time as we can get prepare for the next group checking in later that day.

This is my second stay at Geneva Beach in their Sugarbush Lodge. This is a high quality unit in every way. Appreciate the fact that it is very large, yet every room is cozy. We stayed during a very cold weekend in February and EVERY room was very warm! Excellent view of the lake from both levels. Quiet at night. Good hospitality from the owners. This has been a great find for our family.

Our family stayed at Geneva Beach Resort for one week in July. It was our first time there and we all loved it! There was lots to do and it was all for little to no cost. We had little ones, teenagers, adults, and seniors and we all found something to do. Paddle boards, paddle boats, water trampoline- all for free for guests which was very convenient. Staff was wonderful as well. We will be returning in the future!
