If you're looking for a romantic weekend away where you feel tucked away from the craziness of our lives, look no further. The rooms and cabins are well designed and well appointed with everything you need to relax and unwind. The service is impeccable - almost stealth like. We enjoyed a private dinner in the wine cellar to celebrate our... More

We like to think of Canoe Bay as our own get-away place. We have been here 5 times now over the last 6 years and each time has been as memorable as the others. The first time was for our 24th Anniversary and my wife made the crucial observation that it was the fastest she had ever seen me unwind... More

Canoe Bay is terrific - it has a very peaceful,quiet setting; and an excellent library of contemporary politics, history and economics. You can get out of your spacious suite, open the door and be in the library, which also has a computer setup. So if you wish, you can be away from it all, yet check up on whatever you... More

We were very excited to try Canoe Bay. The website shows exactly the kind of place we've been looking for since moving to WI... Adults only, private, and nice views. We made a last minute reservation for Memorial Day weekend (which is also our anniversary weekend). We arrived very late, to a very nice reception. They took us to our... More

We really appreciate this guest’s attention to detail—that’s what Canoe Bay is all about! We’re also grateful that they spoke up right away—during their stay—so we could remedy their disappointment with their first cottage’s deck. Our reservation specialists love to chat with guests in advance about their personal preferences to help customize their Canoe Bay experience. Regarding breakfast and lunch,... More

Before heading to Canoe Bay for a one night stay on a work off-site, I checked Trip Advisor and had the expectation that this inn would be similar to Sea Ranch (another of my reviews) and that my wife and I would be relatively unimpressed. One of my work colleagues had been to Canoe Bay 6 times before and assured... More

We rented a Lakeside cottage and were so pleasantly surprised by the luxurious accommodations, with 2 fireplaces, 2 A/V systems, double steam shower, sauna, double Jacuzzi, elliptical, and wonderful service. By far the best romantic getaway I can imagine. They treated us like honored guests, as if all their attention was just for us. The "Destination Package" was a good... More

My wife and I spent just one night at canoe bay. We are already planning out next stay. From the moment you check in and are greeted by the calming receptionist to the warm chocolate cookies we were given upon leaving, this getaway was very special. We enjoyed walking their miles of trails, canoeing, reading, and of course just relaxing.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in one of the Dream Cabins at the property on a beautiful fall weekend. Canoe Bay exceeded our lofty expectations. The cabin was beautifully appointed, and the rest of the facilities were fantastic. What an amazing resort! We hope to return in the near future.

This is one of those special places where memories are made. This was our third visit to Canoe Bay. We loved them all. Our only regret is leaving. The fall colors were spectacular.

Very special. Wonderful for an anniversary. Honeymoon or just a getaway. We came during autumn and it is just gorgeous. Food is phenominal. Someone in an earlier review suggested you didn't receive enough food. Not true at all. More than we could eat and my husband is a very tall man. They cater to your every need. It is more... More
