Pinehurst Inn loves the WBBA Microbrewery Map

September 8th, 2010 by Nancy Sandstrom

Pinehurst Inn loves all the great ways WBBA (Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association) promotes Wisconsin. The latest addition to their website is the Wisconsin Microbreweries Map providing opportunity for a great tour around Wisconsin enjoying these artisan brews.

Of course the Chequamegon Bay area is proud to have the northern-most 08-mar-31brewery recognized: South Shore Brewery which is connected with Deep Water Grille located in Ashland, just 25 miles south of Bayfield.

South Shore is known for their flavorful and innovative products. On tap, there’s usually always a Cream Ale, Honey Pils, Nut Brown Ale and Stout. Seasonal beers rotate between
Red Lager, Mai Bock, Bavarian Wheat, Applefest Ale, Bracket
and Porter.

Word has it that the Applefest Brew went into the fermenter about a week ago! This annual favorite is anticipated by locals and visitors.

It is also great to share that South Shore Brewery and their affiliate restaurant Deep Water Grille are actively involved as a local “Green Team” working to create more sustainable and green operations within their business.

So enjoy the microbreweries all around this great state – but be sure to come north! We look forward to seeing you.

May 25th, 2010 by Nancy Sandstrom

Pinehurst Inn guests have discovered that kayaking on Lake Superior among the Apostle Islands is something of a dream. And who better to work with than Living Adventures, a Bayfield based kayak outfitter.

Living Adventures offers a variety of kayaking trips, each with experienced guides who know and understand kayaking, Lake Superior. The trips are open to both beginner and experienced paddlers, providing great instruction and a strong emphasis on safety on the water.

Their philosophy rounds out their trips:

A “Living Adventure” trip can be the thrill of an outdoor experience, the satisfaction of art expression, or the quiet knowing gleaned from an insightful conversation; experiences that create new perspectives on ourselves and the world we live in.

Living Adventures day trips include:

  • Sea Caves Full Day Trip (includes fantastic lunch!)
  • Red Cliff Point Day Tour (includes fantastic lunch!)
  • Ship Wreck Half Day Trip

Overnight Trips are available as well.

Pinehurst Inn Innkeepers are happy to work with our guests to set up a Living Adventures “adventure” – consider combining this with some Enso Day Spa services and you’ll have it made!

Dreamcatcher Sailing up and "sailing" for the season

May 21st, 2010 by Nancy Sandstrom

Pinehurst Inn guests come to Bayfield to enjoy many different activites. One of the most popular is sailing.

Sail Magazine lists Bayfield as one of the top ten places to sail in America and once you’re here, you’ll know why. Explore places that provide pristine sand beaches amidst crystal clear water of Lake Superior, hearing only the periodic luff of the sails and the swishing sounds as the boat cuts through the water.

Couple enjoying sailing with Dreamcatching Sailing, Bayfield, WisconsinDreamcatcher Sailing, Bayfield, Wisconsin just announced that their charter sailing is open for the 2010 season, offering sailing every day with two options. The Island Excursion runs from 9:30am – 2:30pm as they sail out to one of the Apostle Islands where they may anchor in the island’s protection to enjoy the fresh catered lunch or use their zodiac to explore the beaches or perhaps take a swim.

The second option is the Afternoon Sail running from 3:00pm – 5:30pm. This shorter sail provides a taste of sailing the Apostles. The option is there to either sit, relax as the captain manages the boat, or be active as you take the helm or trim the sails.

Captain John Thiel and his crew do a superb job of helping novice sailors learn about sailing, about Lake Superior, the islands and more as noted by their tagline: “Hands On Apostle Island Sailing Adventures.” Dreamcatcher is also Travel Green certified – John has done a great job of finding a variety of ways to operate his boats with an eye to energy conservation and more. Take some time to chat with him about this approach to running his sail charter business.
