Overview

Romantic, adults-only property with friendly staff and cozy accommodations
It's expensive to stay here

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 lodging options – 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 big enough for two. As for activities, there's canoeing, fishing and 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 smart casual attire for a romantic gourmet meal. Although the room rates here might make you cringe, recent visitors said the property's elegant atmosphere, friendly staff members and romantic setting make it worth it. What's more, loyal Relais & Châteaux guests can take advantage of perks through the Club 5C rewards program.
