"I can't thank you enough for creating this respite. I was so happy to return to a familiar beautiful place. I love how peaceful it is, how I'm surrounded by nature. Thank you for making it economical for peeps like me who'd love to afford the gorgeous properties on Canoe Bay, but can afford maybe something closer to the tiny home experience. Thanks for making it possible for us to explore the property for an additional $100. It was super worth it. I always feel like that only lady on the planet when I arrive to your property and it's usually what I'm looking for. Love, love, LOVE this place. I'm going to check frequently to see when it's available for a little escape. I love pretending to be the owner of a tiny home for a bit. Peace and Thanks,"

“I didn’t know that it was possible to feel pampered by a house until I stayed here. The tiny house is cozy, welcoming and serene, anticipating and meeting all of one’s needs. The host’s recommendations for nearby hiking trails were splendid and the restaurant room service from Canoe Bay was excellent. I feel thoroughly spoiled and restored after my stay. Hope to return soon.”
-Heidi, Airbnb Guest
“Great space, prefect for a weekend getaway! Clean, smart layout, relaxing, and private. Also, host was responsive and attentive. Will return again!”
-Christyl, Airbnb Guest
“I loved this place! The quiet atmosphere, the cute tiny house, the great communication from the host made it all amazing. I can’t wait to visit again when it is warmer out. Definitely recommending it to my friends and family.”
-Merve, Airbnb Guest
"We loved this tiny house. Like many people, I am very skeptical of tiny houses. Who wants to live in a closet? But Dan's tiny house opened my eyes. It is beautifully detailed using top quality materials, filled with light all day long, with a great view of the lake and sunset sky through the large window over the dining table. It has a full size bathroom and very comfortable queen size bed surrounded by windows. The lighting at night is wonderful with many combinations of LED down lights. It feels very warm and cozy, not cramped. The surrounding land has trails through the woods leading to very picturesque neighboring lakes and ponds. And the Chippewa Moraine State Recreation Area and Ice Age Trail are a short drive away, offering great hiking. We would love to come back at some point."

“Dan’s place was spotless when I arrived. Beautiful, pristine and cozy all at the same time! I had such a cozy weekend- I felt safe and welcomed by staff at reception! The scenery is GORGEOUS! My favorite is overlooking the lake in the Adirondack chairs on your own private patio! I didn’t want to leave! There are many trails to hike! It was great to get out and enjoy the woods :) Dan is so helpful! And answered all of my questions almost immediately! I was so thankful for this home away from home - I came away feeling very rested! I will definitely come back again!”

“Words can’t even describe it! My boyfriend and I had the best experience and stay...it is breathtakingly beautiful. Definitely need to visit this place.”

“Absolutely loved our stay. We decided to pay an extra $100 to use the Canoe Bay Resort amenities and it was absolutely worth it! Loved the resort and the tiny house was beautiful.”
-Molly, Airbnb Guest
“This tiny house exceeded our expectations! Very quiet and peaceful. Paying extra for the resort amenities was very much worth it - and food from the resort restaurant was great (and easy to order, with contactless delivery). We plan on visiting again soon!”

- Kasia, Airbnb Guest
“Wonderfull location and views. You won’t regret staying, wish we could have stayed longer. Can’t wait to return! A much needed break from a long spring! We loved it and will be back! Thanks Dan!”
- Lori, Airbnb Guest
“This Airbnb is truly a GEM. We couldn't have been more impressed with the space and layout of this tiny house, and it is SO modern! The screened porch was a massive plus, and we saw beautiful deer, a badger, a turtle, and many more creatures while gazing at the ravine on the double chaise lounge. There was not one speck of dirt or dust, which is incredible in the middle of a lush forest! We absolutely LOVED our trail walks, the delicious food we ordered from the resort (and brought to us on a golf cart), the little touch of a full ice bucket in the freezer, and the friendliness of every staff member we came in contact with. The town of Chetek was also just adorable and has a FANTASTIC coffee shop with a great bakery across the street. Cute antique stores, unique gift shops, and retro drive-in restaurant and drive-in movie theater were also in the town. We went back twice some days! Overall, we just felt like we were on our honeymoon again, and had an extremely relaxing, restful, and FUN vacation. Thanks a ton, Dan!”
- Jeffrey, Airbnb Guest
“Amazing little place! Directions were layed out step by step to get you to where you need to be! Cute little place with a view of the lake, far away from it all but also access to a small town for necessities! :) recommend staying for sure! “Amazing place! Me and the girlfriend loved the place! We enjoyed every moment there, away from everything :) we'll definitely recommend and come back!”
- Daniel, Airbnb Guest
“What a wonderful location and a beautiful tiny house. The house was spotless. Check-in (during COVID-19) was done completely touchless. Communication was swift and clear. One thing that guests should note is that the stove/oven is not hooked up and unusable. If you look in the amenities section it's actually noted with "kitchen" scratched out.”
- Shane, Airbnb Guest
“I honestly felt the stress melt away as I stepped into this quaint, charming cabin. I spent most of my day in the screened-in porch, that has the perfect little view of woods and water. The cabin was spotless, with little touches upon my arrival that made it so memorable. The space is well designed and the perfect retreat.
Thank you, Dan. I absolutely needed to get out of the city, and this little slice of heaven was the perfect retreat.”
- Allison, Airbnb Guest
“This is a magical place with stunning scenery nestled right next to an award winning property where you can order up the delicious food to be delivered right to your door and never have to leave! I highly recommend dinner at Canoe Bay's Inn. And plan to do a whole lot of nothing, just good rest, reading, nature immersion, wonderful nature walks around the area. Truly a restorative stay that felt like we got away much longer than just the weekend.”
- Anne, Airbnb Guest
“Beautiful tiny home in the woods! Peaceful place to spend a fall weekend. Loved that there were trails right outside.”

"Buying an Escape home was a bit of a leap of faith for me. When I started looking for a tiny home I quickly realized that I did not want a house with a loft AND I did not want to live in a doll house. My sister found the Escape website and sent it to me and I loved the pictures and designs. The problem was that I am self employed so traveling to see the Escape homes in person just was not an option. Initially, I was very nervous about buying a house sight unseen but after talking to Dan at Escape I started to feel like it was possible. He was great to work with making sure that every detail was in the design drawings and kindly added things that I missed or never thought of! He even made me a custom bed platform so that my dogs would have plenty of room to sleep under the bed. He answered my endless questions and provided the information that I needed to do the site work before delivery. The gentlemen who delivered and set up the house were quick, efficient and lovely to work with. This house has exceeded my expectations and I am so very comfortable and happy living in my Escape home! The construction is top quality and the wood work is beautiful. I had a great experience from start to finish."

HGTV: "Gorgeous...the ultimate escape."
BobVila.com: "Beautiful, efficiently designed and carefully crafted, ESCAPE could make your dream an affordable reality."
Huffington Post: "If it looks like a charming cabin, is structured like a charming cabin and is designed like a charming cabin, it must be a charming cabin.
"ESCAPE was conceived as a high quality cottage, not an RV. Inspired by All-American architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s celebrated attention to detail and appreciation of nature, every element of the ESCAPE has been finished to the highest quality standards, featuring cedar lap siding, LED lighting, Energy Star appliances and much more. With remarkable architectural detail and beautiful furnishings, this is hardly your standard RV, but rather an object of repose that enhances the beauty of any natural setting."
