Stayed here one night as a break from a hectic 2 week schedule spent hopping around various destinations in MN, IA and WI visiting friends and family. Canoe Bay turned out the be the perfect spot to renew and rejuvenate mid-trip.

This is our third stay over a fifteen year period and Canoe Bay remains a must on our infrequent trips to this part of the world. The setting is idyllic and our cabin was the essence of rustic elegance. The dining room is small and...More
My husband and I went to Canoe Bay the weekend of 13-15 of September. The leaves were just starting to change, but in a couple weeks it will be a sight to see there.
It is a maze to get there, but the directions provided...More
We spent 2 nights in this beautiful peaceful resort. Located in the woods on a lake, the facility has many incredible things to offer. Our private room was spacious, inviting and very comfortble. The sheets were so soft and beautiful I had to buy a...More
It pains me to score this place as average because the grounds are beautiful, the room had every amenity one could wish for and the dinner was excellent. I desperately wanted to return here on a regular basis because the peaceful, natural setting reminds my...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!
