Pinehurst Inn embraces Bayfield In Bloom

May 12th, 2011 by Nancy Sandstrom

Apple Blossoms

Pinehurst Inn loves this time of year in Bayfield, a community that celebrates spring. Bayfield in Bloom is just one way we recognize the arrival of spring and pending summer.

What does Bayfield in Bloom offer for our guests?

  • Enjoy the opening of this month long promotion with live broadcast of WPR’s Larry Meiller’s “Garen Talk” show from the Bayfield Pavilion on Friday, May 13th from 11am – 12:30pm. While you’re there, enjoy the numerous vendors providing books, plants, information and education on all topics green.
  • Explore Bayfield’s best gardens at the June 4th Garden Tours. Or take your own self-guided tour.
  • Head up to Hauser’s Superior View Farm – this wonderful local farm has been growing field grown perennials for years. What a treat to head into their barn and be able to pick from freshly dug perennials. Plus there’s a amazing views!
  • Bike or drive the Bayfield orchards bursting with Apple Blossoms.

For us at Pinehurst Inn, the gardens are clearly calling us. Yes, we too have daffodils beginning to bloom – but more than that. This property has over 100 years of “growing history”. For many years in the early 1900s the fields to the south were filled with strawberries. And even then, the perennials were being grown within the stone pathed garden. During our ownership we’ve expanded those perennials and they merge with the native gardens surrounding the Garden House. And as we’ve expanded these areas, we’ve added in numerous herbs, and other edibles that enhance our breakfasts. Then of course there is Steve’s ever expanding vegetable garden.

To add to the celebration, Pinehurst Inn is pleased to offer a wonderful Bayfield in Bloom midweek discount!

Whether you have a green thumb or just enjoy the beauty, join us for Bayfield in Bloom. Here’s the bayfield-in-bloom-schedule.

Whispering Pines – Green Gab: How Green is Your Summer Vacation?

May 3rd, 2011 by Nancy Sandstrom


As many of us think about planning our vacations, how much effort do we put into considering the environmental impacts of how we travel (deciding where we travel and how) AND how green our destination is.The Sierra Club has developed two terrific quizzes that walk you through the analysis of both these questions.

Deciding where to vacation is always a balancing act: money vs. time, variety of opinions within family, whether to travel far or near. Adding environmental considerations might actually make the choices easier – and do the planet some good at the same time. Discover how your travel choices can make a difference. Take the “How Green is my Getaway” Quiz.

So, you’ve decided on a destination. Do you wonder whether the place you are visiting is tuned into their own practices? Check out the “How Green is my Destination” Quiz.

If you don’t feel like taking the quiz, no problem – they provide a direct link to the answers! Perhaps you can come up with some additional ideas of your own.
