The Norgaard family purchased Arlington Beach Resort in 2004 and developed the well-known beach bar “The Boathouse” along with the development and construction of several cabins.

Arlington Beach was developed by 16 businessmen from Arlington in 1920 and was originally called the Arlington Outing Club. It was known for the best beach on Lake Poinsett, and that still holds true today.

The Norgaards have been known for their service and catering to their customers and look forward to keeping that tradition.


“My family and I stayed in a cabin this summer and it was such a fun, relaxing and enjoyable experience! We had a beach-side house with a huge kitchen and comfortable bedrooms. We spent the most time on the patio grilling and on the beach going boating! The shared fire pit in the evenings was a nice way to get to know others staying in the cabins as well. I would highly recommend the Arlington Beach Resort cabins to anyone wanting a quaint getaway.”

“My Wife and I had our wedding reception at Arlington Beach Resort and people are still talking about it! The staff was very accommodating and made the weekend stress free for us. We couldn’t have picked a better setting, the views and the bar decorations made it feel like you were somewhere other than SD. With the cabins right there it made it a safe & worry free environment for all. Arlington Beach Resort has the atmosphere that not only made it a memorable day for us, but for everyone who attended!”

“ABR hosted 25 of my fellow resident physicians twice, and both times the group left looking forward to the next year. When our group wasn’t using the sand-and-sun-themed conference facilities, we played yard games on the beach, listened to live music, and sat around a late night bonfire. Throughout the event, ABR not only provided exceptionally catered meals but went above and beyond by providing snacks. The management was friendly, accommodating, and approachable.”
