Without question, the most luxurious, elegant couples resort experience in the Upper Midwest. This small resort is part of the World renowned Relais and Chateaux group of hotels, resorts, and restaurants. We've stayed at a handful of these properties in North America and Europe. Each one is unique. But, they all share the same attention to service and the quality... More

My husband and I stayed at Canoe Bay for two nights in mid-August for our 10th anniversary. We only chose this place because it was a special anniversary, otherwise we could never justify the price. Getting there was much easier than they make it seem on their website. Our suggestion: use Google maps and go in from the north on... More

We stayed for our 4th wedding anniversary, and I'll just say "ditto" to what others have said. We arrived on a Friday, checked in, and after getting a little settled in our room, almost passed out in the comfy bed (which is good we didn't as it was close to dinner time). It is wicked expensive however for the accommodations... More

Nothing more tranquil than sitting in a kayak in the middle of Canoe Bay's lake! Absolutely peaceful and beautiful in a very natural setting. If you love nature without a lot of primping, manicuring, and staff help, this is a wonderful spot to visit. The service and food however, leaves a lot to be desired if you're looking for a... More

We came back to Canoe Bay after ten years and it is still outstanding! They have added more beautiful cabins since our last visit. We were in #25 and friends of ours stayed in #26. The beds were some of the best we have slept in, pillows were comfy and the towels!!!! Love the towels!! You get a nice breakfast... More

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Canoe Bay. The resort is beautiful. We stayed in the Lookout and had a view of the bay. We enjoyed walking around the grounds. It was very peaceful. We had ordered the food package and enjoyed excellent meals delivered to our cabin. We really enjoyed the three course meal at... More

If you want to get your chill on, this is the place! Relaxation is king! We were in Cabin 10 and it was superb. The all meal option is well worth the price. The breakfast and lunch meals were very nice, the delivery to the cabin was so nice. All of the dinners were top shelf, gourmet! The staff was... More

I've been reading other people's reviews, and it seems like they didn't read the website before they visited. This place is completely secluded. It takes about 15 minutes to get to town, and there's not much to do once you're there. If you stay here, stay to experience quiet, nature, and enjoy your travel companion(s). We stayed in a room...

We recently stayed at Canoe Bay for 2 nights. We enjoyed our stay and I gave it five stars but I would suggest to anyone considering a stay, to do your research. Knowing a few things from Trip Advisor helped us enjoy our visit. But I can see some people being a little disappointed. The property is beautiful and the... More

One of the most romantic, beautiful places I have ever been. Peaceful and discreetly private. l can't imagine a more incredible place to be proposed to!!! Every single detail has been so carefully and beautifully thought through. I didn't know places like this really existed. We would go back in a heartbeat. Even the food served in the restaurant was... More
