In the heart of the scenic north woods on the shores of Lake Superior. A day’s drive or less will bring you to Bayfield where you can visit apple orchards and see them in operation. Or you may want to shop in the quaint town that features local art, apple goodies of all kinds as well as tee shirts and sweatshirts. Nearby you’ll find a winery. Or you can go sailing or fishing on a charter boat. Tour the Apostle Islands and see the lighthouses on the Island Princess that leaves Bayfield harbor twice daily.
