About Carolyn Aarsvold

Growing up on a lake in MN, I always wanted to return to this area and live on a lake again. My husband grew up on the plains of MT. After meeting at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, we spent some time in ND and MT, and finally returned to lake country in MN. We have lived in Alexandria for over 30 years, and our two children (and now 3 grandchildren) love to come home and spend quality time on the lake.

Carolyn Aarsvold purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Carolyn Aarsvold chose Minnesota

We have lived on Lake Geneva for over 20 years, and we own the resort located next to Sugarbush Lodge. We have always wanted to own the lodge, as it sits directly on the site of the original buildings of the resort. Geneva Beach Resort is the oldest resort north of the Twin Cities in Minnesota. By renovating and preserving this lodge, we are keeping the rich history of the resort.

What makes this lodge unique

Sugarbush Lodge is not located directly on resort property, but it is next door, and has access to the many amenities of the resort, such as the water trampoline, kayaks, paddle boats, and paddle boards. The lodge is on a very large, secluded lot, and families can enjoy their own private dock, 2 campfire areas, and a lodge that is spacious (5,600 sq ft) and uniquely decorated with an upnorth lodge feel.

Beautiful vacation home. Very neat and clean. We booked the home for a 3 day memorial weekend stay. There were 21 of us staying in the home. More than enough room for all. Enjoyed the swimming area, beach front and also a kids playground next door. Biking path right out the door as well. We are making plans for our return trip.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for renting the Sugarbush lodge to my group for our 9th Annual girls weekend!

The lodge accommodated the 19 of us very well with room to spare. The lodge is very nice and modern, yet still has the up north cabin feel to it.

The double kitchens were great. No problem cooking a very large thanksgiving dinner, and having a table to seat all of us!

I would reccomend this lodge to any large families in the summer months as well as ladies looking for a weekend away with the girls!

Excellent owners to work with

  • 5 of 5

Alexandria and Lake Geneva are an excellent vacation spot.

Tim and Caroline are great to work with!

Totally new vacation home with a great location.

Lots of great places to eat in the area. Try the walleye at Rudy's or the BBQ chicken pizza at Zorbaz.

Owner's Response: Thanks! Alexandria really is a great vacation destination. There are fun activities for all ages, whether you want to just sit and relax on the beach, or spend time in town shopping and taking in the world class museums. The race cars at Casey's Amusement Park are always a hit! Our lodge has turned into a gorgeous vacation home, and we look forward to meeting all of the families who are gathering there this summer.
