This is a quiet, personal space in a nature setting away from the normal rush. This is a five star luxury retreat (a Relais & Chateaux property) – a 300 acre forested country estate 10 miles from a four-lane highway. There is a picturesque small lake at the center of the resort area. The rooms and cabins are scattered over... More

My now wife, then girlfriend spent a long weekend here. It was very quiet and we were never bothered. The cabin was super nice, well equipped and cozy. I proposed here. This is a great place to come and be alone, top notch! We would certainly come back again. It is so quiet and beautiful. The grounds and amenities are... More

What fascinates me to no end, is how many people in this world are thrilled about spending $600/night to stay in a tiny wood cabin. I am definitely going to look into building something like this as a retirement project since sooooo many people are willing to part with BIG money for nothing but quiet space.........cause that's ALL you get...

We visited Canoe Bay for our 15th wedding anniversary. While the room was very nice and the grounds were pretty, the overall experience for us was disappointing. To start, the resort seemed to make a big deal about how difficult the resort is to find to the point of making me apprehensive about finding it and feeling stressed. We found... More

Dear PurpleVelvet, We’re honored you selected Canoe Bay as a beautiful, comfortable site for your special getaway. Your observations about the driving directions are appreciated! I’ve toned things down a bit on that count, and am glad to know you had no trouble finding us. However, we are dismayed that our food program is apparently at odds with your preferences.... More

I must admit I came up by myself this trip while my wife was in Europe. I came up only to fish in the beautiful, peaceful lake. The trip was not successful catching the bass I envisioned due to the extremely hot weather this summer, but the buckets of bluegill and perch caught proved to be fun also. I stayed... More

Was fortunate enough to escape my real world and head to Canoe Bay for a long weekend. After a decent flight to Minneapolis and about a 2.5 hour ride, we arrived in Chetek and stopped at Gordys in the downtown area and picked up a few things. Then on to Canoe Bay. The directions from the emails had us nervous... More

Canoe Bay is a special place where escaping from the hectic pace of life is possible. Once we checked in, we worried about nothing! Our breakfast was delivered to our cottage.

Our trip to Canoe Bay was unforgettable. They have all the details down to make you feel right at home. The website is not lying when they say its secluded.
