Winter Fun

No matter what season you come stay with us, there’s always something exciting to do around Canary Beach Resort! We always offer an array of fun activities for the kids, as well as for the entire family.

During the winter you’ll find cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, ice fishing and relaxing by the fireplace in our comfortable, cozy cabins.

This is also the perfect time to plan a retreat or scrapbooking/crafting weekend, gather with friends, celebrate the holidays with family, or just getaway! Come enjoy ice fishing, or just relax!
