A sign hanging on the gate states that "the park is closed to the public from Tuesday, June 8, to June 18, inclusive, for a special occasion".
The spacious villa dates back to the 18th century and is situated on a hill.
The terrace offers a view of Lake Geneva and the park contains trees and a meadow.
The city of Geneva rarely uses the house for state occasions; it is closed almost all year round.
The eagerly-awaited summit comes at the end of Biden's first trip to Europe, where he will attend the meeting of the G7 nations and NATO talks in Brussels, among other events.
