Jordan and I just celebrated our anniversary and chose to do so in Bayfield (one of the cutest towns on the shores of Lake Superior). Now unfortunately our anniversary is in the Fall which meant temps were chilly so we didn’t get to explore the Apostle Islands by kayak; que next summers adventure.
However, we had loads of fun in the fall weather both in Bayfield and Madeline Island. Here are five musts when visiting..
1) Bayfield Winery
On your way in, check out this cute winery.. where you get six tastings of Apple inspired vino AND a cute wine glass to take home, all for $5!
My favorite: Cherry Farm House Cider
Jordan’s favorite: Queen’s Red
2) The Fat Radish
This cute shoppe is both a coffee Cafe and a restaurant in the evenings. They have a brillant Mexican Mocha and Blackberry scone that will change your life. After, take a short (few block) walk to the shore and take in the views, which are very dog friendly.
4) Tom’s Burned Down Cafe
Once on the island, you need to check this place out which is quite literally a Cafe that burned down in the past and is remade with miscellaneous items.. it’s a “see-to-believe” kind of place. However, they have a great drinks and a sketch artist. Also, is extremely dog friendly as well as very friendly people! We had such a fun time.
5) The Ritten House Masion/B&B
We celebrated our anniversary in style. We had quite an amazing dinner. It was a gorgeous home, great service and the fish is spectacular. Doesn’t get fresher than this. A must when visiting Bayfield.
As far as a place to stay, we can’t recommend Ole and Lenas place enough. We got our own suite, which was great for the dogs. It was tucked in the woods and the coffee they made us was wonderful. They are an amazing couple with great stories.. and amazing views.
