Year-round resorts in the Alexandria area are somewhat limited, but if you are looking for a great getaway for rest and relaxation lakeside, the Canary Beach Resort is a wonderful option. I was amazed by the amenities of the cabin (fireplace, great kitchen with lots of plug-ins and necessities provided) and pleased by the cleanliness. Such a beautiful cabin with...

This was a good resort before, and even better after the new owners came and put so much energy and effort into making this a great spot to vacation. Plenty to do for all the family members, sits on a...

Canary beach is a really nice resort. It was well kept and was a great place for my family to relax for the week. They have a nice lodge with friendly workers. My kids had lots of fun playing at their beach. Overall, we had a great stay. Highly recommended!

We camped here in one of their camp sites. The lake was NOT usable for our boat because of the weeds. Our campsite was surrounded by mud from previous campers. The campers and trees were not trimmed around, and it was a holiday weekend. I also noticed a lot of tire marks from mowing around trees and it looked horrible....

We have a very limited number of overnight campsites, which are typically reserved for those who are friends of our cabin guests or seasonal guests. Every year, we try to make improvements to our resort. The last few years, be focused...

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...

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.
