We stayed in the Deluxe Room in the Lodge and were very pleased with the room, as we had nearly a 180-degree view of the spring-fed lake, with our own private deck along with a superb shared deck view. The room was spacious, well-appointed, with...More
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...More
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...More
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...More
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...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!
