My Family has had a house in Bayfield since '57 you can find whatever your looking for there from cheap hotels to places like the Pier Plaza which is across from the city dock with nice bar and restaurant attached. No shortage of Bed and Breakfest type places or the Ritenhouse Inn which is world famous. The Casino 3 mi north is also new and very nice if you gamble. Same deal with Restaurants
You can take the ferry to Madeline see the town there with alot of history and theres 2 State parks on the far side of the island, one miles of pure white sand, the other very rugged rocky cliffs of shoreline. Several different tours of the island and or the sea caves, or you can rent sea kayaks and paddle out to the caves. If you go one block off main st (Rittenhouse) on Broad street there is a trail through the big ravine with 5 waterfalls or there is a trail north of the public beach through some smaller rock formations, also a nice hiking trail south along the lake down by the lumber company. The Chamber of Comm. is open 24 hrs and has info on everything around there

I heard radio commercials all last summer bout Apostle Island cruises. Our favorite area we visit 1-2 times a yr is Duluth and North Shore. Trying new things. Don't want to go in blind and not make the best of it.

Bayfield is rather unique compared to most tourist towns, what was durring the 60-70 main st stores have moved to the former comercial area two blocks down, all the original downtown 1900's building are shops but most have a majority of local artist stuff, not typical junk.
Bayfield has held on to a very strict building code to retain its look and feel of many years ago. No trafic lights, neon signs, chain stores or fast food, very much like it was decades ago.
Almost all of town is included in the Historic District, I can't even paint my house without approval much less change or add anything. It really has changed little since 50 years ago. What has change is still show cased. What is now the Ferry landing, used to be Booth Fisheries. They rebuilt some of the buildings and like the waiting area, is one of the very large sheds from Booth, worth the walk through it to see all the pictures of what the town was like in the late 1800's, Its free just walk in
