A truly beautiful day!

April 25th, 2011 by kristensandstrom

sugar bush trail imageWe would like to wish a Happy Easter to all of our guests. We can only hope that your day was as absolutely perfect as ours. Yesterday was the first truly warm and beautiful day of spring in Bayfield. The Sandstrom family spent the whole day essentially enjoying each other and this beautiful place we live in. Our day began with a scrumptious french toast breakfast and then a long hike in the Sugar Bush (these trails are just two miles from Pinehurst!). It is always amazing to me how much fun it can be to go hiking with a 3-year old. The things that they notice are truly amazing and remind us to really appreciate this place.While the ground cover and trees are still fairly brown up here, Aidyn was eager to point out many little green spots along the trails, animal tracks and more. The moss on the rocks, the small saplings breaking through the leaves on the ground, and even a croxus here and there peaking up at us. Things are really coming back to life around here! The higher we got on this trail the more we could see. Off in the distance we could see the sparkling waters of Lake Superior.

Of course as our day continued, we dyed eggs and had a brief Easter Egg hunt. The day ended with a perfect meal including chickens from our local farmers, asparagus and carrot cake cupcakes! What more could we ask for?

With the warmer temps here we are so excited to get into our gardens, paint a few more walls and simply make Pinehurst look as good as possible for all of our spring and summer visitors. We look forward to sharing our amazing home with you all very soon!

Pinehurst Inn pleased to be part of new green guide for travlers

April 22nd, 2011 by Nancy Sandstrom

A huge congratualtions to Mary Bergin, author of the just released “Sidetracked in the Midwest: A Green Guide for Travelers” (Itchy Cat Press –

Pinehurst Inn is so pleased to be one of many wonderful examples of green tourism opportunities. We particularly appreciate this most recent post to her blog, Roads Traveled, which provides a quick peek at a few green efforts and philosophy of our business.

Bergin’s book examines four categories of ecotourism: food and drink, lodging and retreats, nature and wildlife, and the old and the new, including festivals, parks, lodges, tours, farms, museums, nature centers, factories, wilderness areas, and retreats and more. A great must have for those seeking eco-friendly travel opportunities.

Thank you, Mary. And thank you to all the businesses, organizations and individuals who work to make these eco-friendly options available.

A beautiful relationship

April 12th, 2011 by kristensandstrom

First, let me introduce myself. I am Kristen, Steve and Nancy’s daughter and the “assistant” innkeeper at Pinehurst. While I have already been contributing to this blog in the past, I have now been given the ability to “author” my entries separately. So, here goes!

stagenorth theater imageWe at Pinehurst Inn really do make a strong effort to partner and work with other local businesses. One of our newer relationships is with StageNorth Theater in Washburn, WI. I have been very involved at StageNorth as it is an amazing community theater, offering opportunities for those of us who live here to experience theater on many different levels. We’re hopeful that we can share this experience with many of our guests as well.

This past weekend StageNorth put on a wonderful production of the Tony award winning play by Edward Albee, Seascape. This is the story of an older couple pondering what to do “next.” The entire play takes place on a beach with the sounds of the waves in the background. It is certainly a unique production with lizards as they other main characters, but what really struck me was the beach and the water. It really made me yearn for the next season to get here.

Ironically, as I was yearning for things to speed up a bit (and get that ice out of the Chequamegon Bay), there were the first thunderstorms of the year last night, and I woke this morning to a beautiful blue bay of water! Truth be told, the ice is probably still there, just sunk down a bit, but I didn’t care! It was a sure sign to me that things are changing and summer will be here before we know it.

If you’re nearby, consider coming up to Pinehurst this weekend to see Seascape at StageNorth, get a massage at Enso, and take a hike by the lake and enjoy the sounds of Superior.

Sure Sign of Spring in Bayfield

April 6th, 2011 by Nancy Sandstrom

April is here and we are busily preparing Pinehurst Inn for the busy spring-summer-fall season in Bayfield. Paint brushes, cleaning supplies, new towel orders and more all for the enjoyment of our guests coming to play in Bayfield and the Apostle Islands.

And for those of us who reside in Bayfield year round, there are a number of other sure signs of spring:

  • The sound and sight of the Madeline Island Ferry crashing through the ice on their trips between Bayfield and Madeline Island.
  • The UPS trucks go from the standard size up to mega long as they make larger deliveries in anticipation of busier days.
  • The black bears visit our yards, porches and other places as they come out of hibernation.
  • The ongoing announcements about the upcoming Big Top Chautauqua schedule for the coming summer.
  • The return of familiar seasonal business owners who’ve been in warmer climates over the long winter months – many with grimaces as the feel the “cool” spring breezes coming off the lake!

Whatever the sign, we are excited to see a bit more activity and anticipation of the spring.

What is your favorite sign of spring?
