Destination guide

On the shores of the mighty Lake Superior

Bayfield is commonly referred to as the "Home of Wisconsin's National Treasures" and lies on the western shores of the mighty Lake Superior. Leave the hustle and the bustle of the city life behind, turn off your cell phone and experience the world as nature intended, from exploring the ice caves to discovering the hiking trails around the lake. Then, return to your Bayfield vacation rental and enjoy the local restaurants, museums and galleries. While the state gets cold in the winter, the Wisconsin hospitality is warm all year round.

Things to do

A thriving art scene

When you step out of your Bayfield vacation rental and look over the lake, it's easy to see why there is such a thriving artist community. In the town, you'll find a wealth of well-stocked galleries and artist studios, many of which offer classes and workshops to those who are new to brushes and canvas. At night, be sure to visit the local theater which produces some excellent musicals and dance performances. For such a small place, there are a surprising number of sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including several shipwrecks.


Countless outdoorsy activities to choose from

It would take a whole book to list the countless activities available to you from your Bayfield vacation rental, but for outdoorsy types, there simply is no better place. Most are focused in or around the lake, whether it's hiking the shoreline paths, mountain biking along the CAMBRA trails system or heading out on charter boats to fish. It doesn't close down in winter, when a whole host of snowy activities are on offer, from snowmobiling to skating and cross-country skiing. Regardless of what you're into, Bayfield has got you covered.


Hot summers and freezing winters

Wisconsin has a continental climate of long hot summers and freezing winters. It's unsurprisingly that the summer months are the busiest and if you want to book a Bayfield vacation rental, you should book up early to avoid disappointment. However, the outer seasons of spring and fall can be equally delightful with pleasant temperatures and, more often than not, bright sunny skies. With fewer crowds to contend with, you can easily have one of the biking or hiking trails all to yourself. Like the rest of the state, the winter temperatures can go real low, but this heralds a whole host of snowy activities.

Natural features

Check out the ice caves

Over a billion years in the making, Lake Superior is the greatest of the Great Lakes holding more than 3 quadrillion gallons of fresh water. Some of the most spectacular spots lie along the shoreline near Bayfield including the extensive network of vaulted sea caves created by thousands of years of erosion. Though spectacular enough in the summer, during winter the caves are surrounded by everchanging pillars or ice and frozen waterfalls making it seriously photogenic. The brave can board kayaks to float around in the unworldly beauty of the caves.
