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.

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 – www.itchycatpress.com).

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?

Pinehurst Inn Celebrates Earth Hour 2011 – Lights Out and Ponder…

March 26th, 2011 by Nancy Sandstrom

From 350.org.: So will you be turning off your lights?

Tonight, all around the world, people will be shutting off their lights at 8:30pm as a part of this year’s Earth Hour celebration (http://earthhour.org/). It’s a great moment to pause and remember that in addition to the community and political organizing we do, committing to real change in our personal lives is important too.

We can start with turning off our lights, and use that moment to think deeply about how we can go “beyond the hour” (this year’s Earth Hour theme) and commit to making other changes in our personal lives – getting out of your car and onto your bike or feet, hanging up your clothes instead of popping them in the dryer, eating food that is locally grown. We know these changes alone won’t get us to 350ppm, but they’re a part of the work we’ll need to do, and as organizers, it’s up to us to set the example of how we can all live happy, healthy, low carbon lives.
