A great desitination for relaxation and serenity. Stayed three nights in the Hilltop cottage. Fantastic Spa/Bathroom with heated floors, steam shower, sauna, jaccuzi and excersize equipment. The cottage was meticulously designed and built. Extremely warm and relaxing environment to read, listen to music, wifi, while taking in the beautiful surroundings through large windows.

Food is fantastic and reasonably priced for the quality and service that accompanies it.
Loved the snowshoeing, well designed landscape, library, WIFI. Would improve on the TV reception (they should switch to DirecTV). Picture quality and channel selection are mediocre. Also, this is a highly questionable value overall. Regular pricing of the rooms/cottages is too high even at these service and luxury levels.

We originally visited Canoe Bay in the autumn as a birthday celebration my husband planned, and I had little idea what to expect. We are new to a state that prides itself on its lake living and recreation, so I assumed it would be much like what my neighbors described to me as the time they spent at their cabins on lakes, but with none of the work.

I was so very wrong.

We stayed in Canoe Bay's Heavenly Suite -- aptly named. The suite's living room is elegant and exceptionally comfortable. And vying with the spacious, cushiony, feather- duvet-covered bed for the best feature of the bedroom is the fireplace, next to, and on the same level as the bed. The fireplace and the uplights around the suite make the nighttime environment very cozy and romantic.

We spent that weekend relaxing in the cabin and on the deck, touring the garden and looking around the charming library, sitting on the beach and eating the exquisite dinners the chef planned each night -- served by more accomplished and gracious servers than we've experienced anywhere in the country. Throughout the stay, service (and in a funny way other guests) was oddly invisible. We felt the time was perfect, just for us, and without flaw.

We had such a fantastic time on our first trip to Canoe Bay, we decided to forget Christmas presents for our small, grown family and went back to Canoe Bay for few days after Christmas, using two guest rooms in the same building. The resort was stunning in the snow, and again the service, the massages, the food --everything -- was exquisite.

It was the perfect way to spend the holiday.

This was our first time to Canoe Bay and thoroughly enjoyed our excursion from daily life. We only stayed one night, but would definitely go back again. The library is the most relaxing and peaceful room I've visited. The food and wine selection was top-notch. November is off-season and can only imagine how amazing it would be to visit during the summer to take advantage of the lake and activities. Hotel has a no-children policy, and this added to our serene escape since we have 6 children.

I Dream about being at Canoe Bay when I'm not there. :) Really; It is a slice of heaven.
The cabins are so comfortable, romantic and well equipped that it's easy to not want to leave them at all during your stay. -- However, the property is SO beautiful you'll definitely enjoy a walk on the trails, a trip to the library or even taking a canoe out. All of which are very convenient and a beautiful opportunity to enjoy nature.
The food & wine are a delight and we look forward to every meal. I highly recommend dining during your stay for all breakfast, lunch and dinners. Our meals have been so memorable over the years we STILL talk about them.
The staff is A+, Friendly, Welcoming, & Professional! :) Love it, Love it, Love it!

We just experienced our 7th visit to Canoe Bay, and it was our best trip yet. As always, the beautiful surroundings were immaculate, the locally-sourced dining was seasonal and delicious, and the many amenities (library, DVD collection, fitness center, kayaks and walking trails) helped us leave all our daily stresses behind.

The most noticalble difference this year was in the service. While it's always been good, this year, the service was exceptional. Every employee we encountered sincerely wanted to make our stay better. They were never snooty or overbearing--instead, they were friendly and approachable yet laser-focused on our comfort. Another big difference for us this year was our stay in their exceptional Edgewood property. The architectural beauty was striking, and some of the best parts of our 3-day weekend were luxuriating in its seclusion. It's exceptionally well designed, and it provides a sense of complete privacy. We particularly enjoyed the Finnish sauna as well as the beautiful living room, where we tore through books from Canoe Bay's library in front of the fireplace.

It's hard to imagine what could have made this trip better. We can't wait to return next year.
