Things to Do & See

There are many things to do and see, but the biggest attraction is our 22 beautiful Apostle Islands. Whether you sail, kayak, hike, bike, or walk, there is something for everyone. Visit one of the lighthouses, walk on the singing sands or take a cruise to the sea caves.

Winter Fun

Winter in Bayfield is great experience. Fresh snow most every day and the Great Lake does it's best to keep the temperatures moderate. Mt Ashwabay features cross country and downhill skiing as well as snowboarding. Maybe a dogsled ride is more your speed? In March take a real Polar Plunge through the ice of Lake Superior. Ever wanted to drive to Madeline Island? For a few weeks in the deep of winter we have the Ice Road. When the lake freezes thick enough to plow a road from mainland Bayfield to Madeline Island. There is something unique about driving across Lake Superior.

The Orchards

There are many orchards and berry farms surrounding Bayfield. Depending on the season, you may have fresh blueberries, strawberries, cherries, or delicious crisp apples available.

Sail the Islands

Hiking and biking trails intertwine all around Bayfield. Apostle Highlands Golf Course is just up the hill from Woodland Lodging.
