It maybe a quieter season, but there’s still plenty to do!

It’s funny that many people assume that Bayfield closes its doors over the winter months. Even those of us who live here look forward to the quieter months. Yet, once those months arrive, our schedules stay full and there’s always something going on up here. Ironically, the little things that drive people nuts during the summer months are the ones that don’t exist during the winter. You rarely need to search for a parking space. Almost never will you have to wait for a dinner at our local restaurants. It’s simply a quieter place.

That said, what is there to do? There are many different winter events worth checking out in Bayfield – such as the Blue Moon Ball, Apostle Islands Sled Dog Races, Bayfield Winter Festival and more! Beyond that though, check out our local shops. There are quite a few open year round and you’ll have the time and opportunity to chat with the owners. Better yet, if you’re staying at Pinehurst Inn, let us set up a catered meal for you or enjoy a wine tasting from Bayfield Wine & Spirits. Oh, yes – and there’s Enso Wellness Center and Day Spa ready to schedule your massage or facial. Ahhhhh.

I guess one of the harder things about the busier season here is that we don’t have the time that we would like to contribute to each and every visitor. We’d love to see you up here over the next couple of months.

Here’s to a happy and prosperous new year to you all!
