Really enjoyed our recent stay at Canoe Bay. Staff were nice, grounds were clean and our cabin was nice. That being said... it's quite expensive. Worth it? I'm not sure. The dinner should be included with the cabin rates since there are no options and...More
We really enjoyed our stay at Canoe Bay-I am having a difficult time rating it because some things are so wonderful and some need work.
First the wonderful: If you are looking to truly get away this is a great place-there was not Wi-Fi in...More

We’re delighted to hear that your stay was relaxing, peaceful, comfortable, and delicious. We especially appreciate your term “fantastic” in regards to Chef’s cuisine—a perfect description!
If I may address the few service issues that concerned you:

We were looking for a special getaway after we had gone to a family reunion in Minneapolis. I can't imagine a better place to stay if you were hoping to unplug and recharge for a few days. The villa we stayed in was immaculate and...More
Really perfect. Close to the Minneapolis Metro, yet far enough out and not in any 'tourist' area to be great locale. The 100s of acres of land equal peace and quiet, privacy, and space to rom the property. With very few rooms/units, it's no resort,...More
We had a wonderful time at Canoe Bay. We were going to go to Nashville for the weekend, but decided we needed something a little slower paced. My wife said she wanted a rustic place in northern Wisconsin, no kids, with really nice accommodations and...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!
