Canoe Bay is so well worth the drive up through northern Wisconsin. Tucked in the woods off a county highway, located on the shores of a pristine glacial lake, Canoe Bay reflects the passion and energy of one family's commitment to quality and understated rustic elegance. We visited in early October - our first visit. It helped that the weather...

This is a late review! (because back in August, 2013, Canoe Bay was not in Trip Advisor's website yet). We had perfect weather -- hot in the daytime (but not humid) and cool at night. We went for a long weekend because we're outdoor people and the name -- Canoe Bay -- appeared to be just what we wanted. I...

We spent a wonderful 50th anniversary at Canoe Bay. We stayed in the Dream cottage which was beautiful. It was very roomy, with a kitchen, living area, bedroom, deck, fireplace, computer and printer for your use. Visiting the gardens is a must...they are spectacular. There is also a great library. The dining experience was great.....there is no choices for dinner...

We spent two nights here to come and see the fall colors. We drove from Chicago which was quite far away. We stayed in the most economical room ($300) which was in the lodge, i.e. the library building. The room was fairly small, but large enough for two nights. I enjoyed the wood paneling everywhere. The décor reminded me of...

My husband and I spent a lovely three-day weekend at Canoe Bay last weekend, and we are still grateful for the positive impact it had on us. We were able to relax in a way that is hard to do in a more cosmopolitan setting. Even though we were told the resort was full on Saturday night, we ran into...

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. We were upgraded from the Lodge to a Dream Cabin which was outfitted with every imaginable amenity - jacuzzi...

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 romantic. The food,while somewhat pricey, is well prepared and well presented. What knocks me out...

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 by Canoe Bay are fine and with a GPS system, you should be good. We...
