Most Recent Things to Do in Bayfield

  • Great bookstore

    by merweber Written Jan 30, 2008

    Visiting Bayfield? A real "must" while you are there is to visit WHAT GOES ROUND, the local bookstore. Wonderful inventory of predominantly used books on regional history, local lore, metaphysics, Nature, the Classics, art and architecture, wellness, cooking, mysteries, Westerns, poetry, children's lit, and more. Lovely back terrace for summer reading, and a warm and welcoming "inside" too.

    Aposlte Islands National Lakeshore Visitor Center

    Park info here

    This facility is operated by the National Park Service, and features a full explanation of the history, geology, and environment of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshire. Good place to find maps, guides, and information about ferry service and tourist cruises to and from the various islands.

    They also have a small theater which shows a documentary film about the National Park, but I didn't have a chance to see it on my most recent visit. According to a local informant who provided me with the information, this building was once school a courthouse, and during World War II some German prisoners of war were temporarily housed here before being sent out to work on local farms. It was constructed with the local red sandstone quarried on the island

    The Bayfield Winery

    by nichole_521 Written Mar 4, 2007

    The Bayfield Winery makes their own hard ciders, wine and meads from local grown fruit. They offer wine tasting, which is fun! The pear wine is a local favorite and seasonal. It typically runs out in the first week it is released, so stalk up for the winter.

    The Hauser's Superior View Farm

    by nichole_521 Written Mar 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hauser’s Superior View Farm orchid was delightful. I visited the orchid during the apple festival and out did what the festival held. At the Hauser farm there were hay rides, wine tasting (apple, strawberry, pear and others), apple tasting and jam tasting, apple picking, and so much more.

    My husband I had a wonderful lunch of pull pork sandwiches accompanied with homemade buns and BBQ sauce. A true treat on a crisp fall afternoon.

    There are many homemade treats that can be purchased at the farm such as: jams, syrups, apples (of course), wine, cider, honey and more.

    If you visit the Apple Festival (I say skip it unless you are a local and want to visit with friends), the Hauser farm offers free bus rides to the festival. They even offer a free place to park your car. You may wait a bus or two for your ride, but it is better than dealing with the crazy festival parking.

    Did I forget to mention there is a great view of the Lake Superior and beautiful trees full of color in the fall.
