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

We spent last weekend at Canoe Bay and had a wonderful relaxing time. The fall colors were a bit past their prime, but the locals there told us that they felt everything actually looked better this past weekend. We got the destination package so all meals were included, breakfast and lunch delivered to the cabin and two delicious dinners at... More

This place is quite unusual, incredibly quiet and relaxing for adults only. Nestled in an all natural woodsy environment, the Frank Lloyd Wright structures - cabins, lodge, reception and inn - are all beautifully crafted with luxurious amenities. The cabin we stayed in was one of the Dreams cabins with a view of the lake. Chipmunks frequented our porch and... More

Third time here, and we will return! Meals are wonderful for dinner, but I think we will skip that next time and eat in Chetek or Blumer. Breakfast is continental with extras not worth the price. I would rather spend $$ on another night or a different room option. Beautiful property to enjoy in impeccable condition. You will not be... More

This is the second time we have made the 6 hour drive from Chicago. The property is One of a kind. Beautiful, serene, quiet, with quaint yet luxurious cabins. This is as close as I get to camping! The food is excellent in the dining room. The delivery breakfast is Ok. Lunch also Ok. Bring some snacks and drinks for... More

Canoe Bay is a lovely tract of land, populated by very comfortable cabins. The staff is friendly, although not as sophisticated as one might expect for a property at this price point. The most notable (and somewhat surprising) element of the experience is the relative structure and regimentation; breakfast is only available in one's cabin, with a fairly limited menu,... More

We learned about Canoe Bay through various magazine articles. It sounded like a Midwest version of Post Ranch in CA (where we were married). As frequent travelers to Minneapolis, we added a few days onto a Minneapolis trip and headed to Canoe Bay. We spent three nights there. We originally reserved the Escape cottage but were upgraded to a Lakeside... More

This resort is a trek to get to ( if you do not happen to live in Wisconsin) but is the perfect place to restore your marriage. The cottages (we had dream #24) are extremely comfortable and relaxing. Breakfast is included and delivered outside your door. Lunch and dinner are available. The food we had was well prepared. There are... More

Canoe Bay is quite simply the most relaxing, luxurious getaway we've ever taken. Visited on our "mini-moon" after our destination wedding. Spent two nights in the Dream Cabin #9 and it was amazing. Privacy is clearly of the utmost importance to the staff, so it creates a very intimate environment for you and your sweetheart. You definitely get the service... More
