U.S. News Review

It's easy to see how Canoe Bay earned its reputation as one of the most romantic hotels in the world: This Relais & Châteaux property in Chetek, Wisconsin, caters specifically to couples. You can pick from several different lodgings — from standard rooms to spacious villas and private cottages — which sprawl across the 300-acre wooded estate. All accommodations feature beautiful views, as well as stone fireplaces, furnished decks and whirlpools just big enough for two. As for activities, there's canoeing, fishing and row-boating on the lake, as well as hiking trails and horse-drawn carriage rides. And when you need to wind down, book an in-room massage or cozy up with a good book in the library. Meanwhile, the Dining Room asks that you don dress-casual attire for a romantic gourmet meal. Although the room rates here might make you cringe, loyal Relais & Châteaux guests can take advantage of perks through the Club 5C rewards program.
