FrontRunners: Business Trip

Canoe Bay (715.924.4594, www.canoebay.com) owner Dan Dobrowolski knows that some of his guests will not be able to leave the office behind. He also recognizes that a cabin at his northern Wisconsin resort, with no telephone lines and cellular service that is spotty at best, is not an ideal working environment. He therefore recently added two guest units built above a new business facility at his retreat, which, although rustic, is also the Midwest’s only Relais & Châteaux property.

 

The two-story Lookout facility, which opened late last year, includes 600 square feet of business space equipped with Wi-Fi Internet access and projector screens, plus two guest cottages upstairs. But given the cabin’s setting on a hillside overlooking a private lake, this may prove not to be the most productive place to conduct business.
