Join us for this great little getaway to the nearby shores of Lake Superior. We’ll visit the charming town of Bayfield set on the shores of Lake Superior featuring Madeline Island off the coast. Then we’re on to Duluth, set on the hill overlooking beautiful Lake Superior and the harbor! All this with fall colors as a brilliant backdrop to a great trip!


Day 1 – Home to Bayfield

Our first day on the road, we stop for an early lunch at Norske Nook in Rice Lake, WI – “The Fabulous Pie Place.” What a great start to our journey to the North Country. Our coffee stop later this afternoon is the beautiful Northern Great Lakes Visitors Center for more information on the fascinating places we will be visiting the next few days. Then off to our destination, Bayfield, WI, where we check into our hotel, The Bayfield Inn, right on the shore overlooking Lake Superior. Bayfield is the stopping off point before visiting the Apostle Islands National Lake Shore.
