Canoe Bay

October 20, 2018

September 15 and 16, 2018

Spent a glorious weekend with my wife at Canoe Bay near Chetek, WI.

Located on a private 50 acre spring fed lake, which I think is called Dead Goose Lake, it is a luxurious oasis in the middle of NW Wisconsin.  Food – excellent.  Accommodations – world class – all buildings are in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian Style.  Breakfast in Bed – crazy good.

Pricey – but a simply amazing place. Enchanting. I was kind of waiting for elves, hobbits, nymphs and dragons to appear.

Plus, the lake a has a few bass in it’s tannin stained water. Catch and release only.  Fish are accessible via shore fishing in a few spots, or the available canoes, kayaks, or paddle boards. Nothing big…actually the fish I caught looked under fed. Again not a big lake.

Went to Valkyrie Brewing Company in Dallas, WI.  Awesome.  The Dragon Blade and other sampled beers were very good.  Played a little old school pinball.  Arrived a bit too late for the cribbage tournament.
