Wow, from the time we arrived to the time we left, it was perfection. Great accommodations, hospitality, food, wine, and attention to detail. Peaceful, tranquil, and room to roam. Hiking trails, canoes to use, library to browse and privacy. A great place to escape to and we'll be back!!

Canoe Bay is simply lovely. The accommodation is set around a lake and there are walking trails through the woods. The rooms are gorgeous - spacious and well-equipped with everything you might need. The restaurant dishes up great food (set menu) and has an impressive cellar, which can be booked for private dining. The resort is in a secluded spot,...

My husband visited for our 1 year anniversary, on the recommendation of a friend. It was a wonderful weekend winter getaway. We were fortunate to get a complementary room upgrade, which was a wonderful surprise! We went snow shoeing and drove up to Hayward for the day. Due to the winter we had this year, it was not the best...

We've stayed at Canoe Bay twice and each time has been wonderful! This is a great place to go to reconnect, relax, hike, mountain or ride bike (we've done both), canoe, romance, or eat amazing food. The staff, the property, the surroundings, the food and the accommodations are all amazing!

We stayed in the Escape Classic, one of the romantic tiny houses at Canoe Bay. Very modern, cozy and comfortable for two for an anniversary weekend. The huge bay windows overlooking the forest promoted a feeling of roominess and privacy, yet The Inn was in easy walking distance for a delicious dinner. The walking trails are wisely laid out. The...

We spent a lovely weekend in the Treetop cottage #23. A beautiful modern design with all the comforts and amenities you could ever want. Breakfast and lunch delivered everyday and a great fixed menu provided every evening in the Inn for dinner. As a vegetarian I was disappointed one night that they simply gave me the same meal minus the...

Do NOT get intimidated by the approximately 5 hour drive from the northern Chicago suburbs. Canoe Bay is worth it, even if it's just for 2 nights- which is what we did. If I had to choose between Canoe Bay or Kohler for a couples weekend away, Canoe Bay would win hands down! We splurged for a freestanding "cabin." If...

Last spring we stayed at Canoe Bay and were delighted with the accommodations, food, services, and setting. This winter, with lots of snow on the ground, we returned and were even happier with everything. Can't recommend this lovely resort more highly, but consider it a six-star location.

My husband took me here for my birthday in July. What an amazing experience. On our visit we toured the gardens, which are impressive and the on-site produce is used in the so much of the food served. The wine list is wonderful and the attention to detail is fantastic. We'll return.
