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 our trip by a week due to unforeseen issues. The facility is first class, very sharp, well laid out and the cabins are amazing! Clean, new, great beds, fully furnished, stocked with dishes and cookware...what you get for your dollar is the best value we have ever had for a cabin rental, and we have rented all over the country. The cabins have in floor heating, a fireplace, TVs, DVD player, excellent showers. The cabins are well designed to accommodate high traffic without tracking snow all over the place. Hard tile floors downstairs make clean ups a breeze. It is very peaceful, very quiet and a fantastic get away location...yet if you need something (and we did) Alexandria is less than 30 minutes away with all the amenities of a thriving community...but you will want to stay at the resort all the time if you can!
Straight forward, honest and down to earth are the type of hosts you will have with Christine and Scott. They take great pride in their resort and have every reason to do so. It is outstanding.
The resort is about 1000 yards off a very well groomed trail that will take your north or south and connects with the entire DATA trail system. You can literally sled off your back porch, across the lake and jump on the trail. The drive and parking areas are well plowed, with plenty of room to maneuver and turn around truck and trailer.
Even though we had some major issues with our sleds, this was a trip we will remember the rest of our lives. Great memories were made with our family, and I am so glad we found the Canary Resort for our snowmobiling weekend!
