Plopped in the middle of a hardwood forest with cabins nestled around a deep glacier-formed and crystal clear lake, Canoe Bay provides ample access to nature, whether you want to view from your terrace or deck or want to hike in the surrounding woods. This...More
My husband and I spent two nights at this beautiful, relaxing resort in the north woods of Wisconsin for our anniversary. We were upgraded to a Spa Hilltop cottage... What a treat! We had champagne on the large lovely deck before our dinner at The...More
We had a lovely, relaxing 25th anniversary trip up to Canoe Bay. We stayed in room 2 in the lodge, which has glorious views all the way down the lake through a large window. The one disadvantage of the lodge rooms is that you access...More
We stayed in the Deluxe Room in the Lodge and were very pleased with the room, as we had nearly a 180-degree view of the spring-fed lake, with our own private deck along with a superb shared deck view. The room was spacious, well-appointed, with...More
Wow, from the time we arrived to the time we left, it was perfection. Great accommodations, hospitality, food, wine, and attention to detail. Peaceful, tranquil, and room to roam. Hiking trails, canoes to use, library to browse and privacy. A great place to escape to...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!
