Canoe Bay is an exclusive small resort that provides a lot of privacy for the guests in very comfortable relaxing surroundings. We were there for three nights during winter. It was quite cold so we didn't get outside much. We stayed in the Lodge in one of the deluxe rooms which in addition to a nice fireplace had extra room... More

A visit to Canoe Bay is one of those places and experiences that you will never forget. The buildings are architecturally designed and built with great sensitivity to the human spirit with quality craftsmanship, careful material selection and maximization of site views and natural lighting. The lodging provides a sense of permanence and beauty that leaves the inhabitant feeling secure,... More

We have enjoyed Canoe Bay before, and have always been blown away by the relaxing solitude, marvelous cuisine, and superb service. We returned this year for a winter getaway, and were so pleasantly surprised to be "upgraded" to the Edgewood. What a treat! This magnificent 2000 square foot retreat felt like our own private lodge, with two fireplaces, dining room,... More

Happened to see the Canoe Bay Resort in the book "1,000 Places to See Before You Die" and at the same time was looking for a place to spend 3 nights over NYEve. Turned out to be a great find and only a 6 hour drive. The resort really puts a premium on solitude and serenity. The cabins are nicely... More

We traveled from Milwaukee for one night to Canoe Bay. Although it is a several hour drive, it was worth it!!! Time seemed to stand still upon arriving; it was totally relaxing. The staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Tree Top - it was probably the cleanest hotel room or lodge I have ever been in.... More

Our second visit to Canoe Bay was much like the first; quiet, restorative and cozy. The staff recognized our return anniversary celebration with a cabin upgrade, red roses, and a split of sparkling wine upon check-in. My husband said he wished he could take credit for the gifts but they were from Canoe Bay. How lovely! This time we splurged... More

If you are someone who prefers an endless list of things to do, lots of excitement, and mingling with other hotel guests, Canoe Bay is NOT for you. If you are like me, however, and are looking for a remote, private, peaceful, and relaxing place to spend quality time with your significant other, then Canoe Bay should be your go-to,... More

I stayed in a Lodge room just after Thanksgiving. There are four rooms in the Lodge along with a beautiful library and fireplace. There is also free wifi and a good selection of DVDs available in the Lodge. The room was quiet and cozy. It was a treat having breakfast delivered in the morning. The cabins also looked very nice:... More

I surprised my husband with a weekend here for his birthday. We had looked at the property previously but weren't sure exactly what to expect. We loved it! The entire experience was wonderful. It's location is unusual...pretty much in the middle of nowhere. But the peace and quiet that go along with that are extraordinary. We stayed in a Dream... More

My Fiancé and I had been to Canoe Bay once before, and fell in love with it. It is the perfect place to get away and relax. The second trip we took was a lot more than just a weekend to relax.. we got engaged! The staff helped with every bit of the proposal and made it exactly how I... More
