Since 1993, Canoe Bay resort has been dedicated to excellence in providing absolute privacy, exceptional cuisine, and every comfort in an unspoiled, peaceful, wonderfully secluded setting. Adults only; children are not allowed.
My husband and I stayed at Canoe Bay for four days and we could not have been more delighted. From the main road, a half-mile drive on a well-groomed paved path through the woods brings you to the small Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Reception building, complete...More
So I have been wanting to check this place out for a few years now. A last minute weekend detour worked out perfectly so we could. First off everything I have read really set the bar high for Canoe Bay and did it deliver? Yes...More

So glad that you’ve carried happy memories of your summertime stay, especially about our Chef’s amazing garden-fresh dinners! Indeed Canoe Bay is the ideal spot to escape all the pressures of everyday life and focus on the most important things. Hope you’ll be back soon...More
My husband and I went to Canoe Bay for our anniversary last June. This Inn is deep in the woods and provided plenty of opportunity to view wildlife. (We had to stop the car so I could move a turtle out of the road on...More
What a place to get away from everything. Just relax and don't lift a finger they will bring it all right to your cabin.
Chef outstanding! The food is wonderful unusual combinations that your taste buds savor.My only wish is you could have better fireplace...More

Hi there! I'm happy to answer this for you. There is not a whole lot to do at Canoe Bay itself. If the weather is nice, you can swim, canoe, and kayak. There is a really nice library with a ton of books to peruse or borrow (I picked one up one the widow behind Veuve Cliquot Champagne) as well as an impressive range of DVDs. I brought fun bath stuff from Lush and had a mini "spa" afternoon after a picnic and a swim. There are also many miles of easy walking/hiking trails.
As for the area, Chetek doesn't seem to have a whole lot to offer. There are some antique stores in town, a few casual restaurants, and not a whole lot else. I enjoy old fashioned downtowns though so a stroll would be fun in my book. Chetek is probably more rustic than charming though.
My suggestion on your way down would be to stop at the Leinenkugel Brewery in Chippewa Falls for a tour and beer tasting. Canoe Bay is about 20/30 minutes North of Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls. If you go in the Fall, there are also lots of apple orchards in the area which are fun to visit.
Overall, Canoe Bay will probably be more about relaxing and enjoying the beautiful grounds, accommodations, and fine dining. I hope this helps!
