About Monte or Sandy Sharbono

Meet Your Hosts

A Personal Note From The Sharbono's

We’re Monte and Sandy Sharbono, the proud new owners of White Birch Resort. In November, 2004 we purchased White Birch and moved to Blackduck Lake from Greenville, South Carolina, our home for the past 19 years. We are originally from eastern Montana, so we jumped at this wonderful opportunity to move to Minnesota’s Northwoods.

While in South Carolina, Monte was a brickmason contractor and I was an International Import Specialist for Michelin Tire Corp., until I decided to take time off from the business world to raise our two little boys. Aaron and Eli, age 12 and 10, fit right into the resort lifestyle since

The great family life of living and working on a resort is what we have chosen as our newest adventure in life. With all of the outdoor fun we are excited to share this adventure and invite you to come enjoy a fun filled vacation on a lake as your next well-earned vacation. During your stay at White Birch Resort, we have great hopes you will walk away from your stay with a smile on your face and wonderful memories to remember a lifetime.

Warmest Regards,

Sandy, Monte, Aaron & Eli

The Sharbono Family

Thanks for the great stay. Our family had so much fun we are still talking about the home and the resort activities that came with it.

The water trampoline was the biggest hit for all of us.

Great family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

This home was just unbelievable. When we booked it Sandy the owner kept telling us it is not like any other home in Minnesota, but of course we have heard that before. When we arrived yes it looks like your ordinary home on the lake until you walk in. With all of the decorations thru out the house it is just amazing what the owners have spent to make this a vacation home like no other. Then with all of the resort amenities included we could not begin to imagine all the years we have stayed at other private homes and did not have all of these.

Yes the price is more than most private home rentals but if you consider all of the activities the family can enjoy for free and then the house itself there is no comparison for us.

I definitely would recommend this home for anyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation for the entire family.

Soon The Ice Will Be Gone

  • 5 of 5

Well we will be there this coming weekend, Jan. 31st, 2014 our plan is to fish, and maybe go skiing in Bemidji weather permitting. But if to cold we will stay at the cabin and use the hot tub. So excited to get out of Moorhead/Fargo area.

But I can't wait until this summer when the ice is gone and the sun is warm. We will be there for a weeks vacation. This resort is so relaxing for me, I can go for a walk, or read a book, swim in the pool. But being out on the lake is the best time ever, I love watching the sun set in the evenings.

Thanks for a wonderful time and see you soon.

Great fun Winter and Summer. Hate to leave

  • 5 of 5

With so much to do in a wonderful environment we hated to leave Have stayed both in the winter and summer. The owners and staff are more than accommodating. A fantastic place to get away.

Best family resort I have ever seen

  • 5 of 5

I HAVE STAYED HERE FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS, I LOVE THIS RESORT. THE POOL IS A BIG HIT, THE TRAMPOLINE AND ALL THE OTHER LAKE TOYS, EACH CABIN HAS ITS OWN THEME, AND AIR HOCKEY, OR FOOSBALL IN THE BASEMENT. I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT WE GOT THE FIREWOOD FREE FOR THE BONFIRES. EVERY CABIN I HAVE STAYED IN FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS WAS VERY CLEAN, AND IF WE NEEDED ANYTHING THE OWNERS WOULD HELP US OUT. ONE THING THAT I THOUGHT WAS DIFFERENT IS THAT SUNDAY MORNINGS, THE OFFICE WAS CLOSED, UNTIL I REALIZED THEY AS A FAMILY ATTENDED CHURCH. I HAVE ALREADY BOOKED FOR 2014... THIS IS NOT A RESORT FOR THOSE THAT ARE VERY LOUD, AND PARTY ALL NIGHT, BUT IF YOU WANTED TO BE AROUND THE BONFIRE AND HAVE A FEW DRINKS AND VISIT THAT WAS NO PROBLEM. I WOULD RECOMMEND WHITE BIRCH RESORT TO EVERY FAMILY THAT WANTS A WONDERFUL PLACE FOR THE YOUNG AND OLD.
