Tell us a little bit about yourself and Pinehurst Inn.
Mike and I purchased Pinehurst Inn in March of 2016. We made the move from Chicago to Bayfield to enjoy a slower paced life and the beauty of Lake Superior and the Bayfield area. Owning an inn allows me to cook and bake for guests, which I love to do. The Inn is comprised of 2 buildings—the original home built in the late 1800s, which includes 5 guest rooms, and the garden house built in 2003, which includes 3 guest rooms. A 3 course breakfast and an afternoon snack is provided each day.
What makes Pinehurst Inn special for honeymooners?
The Pinehurst Inn is located 3 miles south of downtown Bayfield on 3 ½ acres, surrounded by soaring pines and adjacent to Pike’s Creek. Couples can enjoy the peace, beauty and tranquility that the property offers, yet be just minutes away from Lake Superior and the many activities the Bayfield area has to offer. Many of our rooms have large jetted tubs and fireplaces, and some have private decks—some of the favorite amenities of our honeymooners. We have a number of porches, a patio, and other sitting areas on the property allowing couples to find their own special spot.
What time of the year is busiest for honeymooners?
The summer is the busiest for honeymooners, which is a great time of the year for enjoying Lake Superior, Madeline Island, and all the many hiking and biking trails in the area.
What activities do you typically recommend to honeymooners who stay with you?
It all depends on the couple’s interest. Many of our honeymooners have enjoyed kayaking to the sea caves, exploring Madeline Island, taking a private boat tour to some of the Apostle Islands, hiking the nearby trails, and visiting the local wineries, orchards and farms.
What recommendations do you have for couples looking to honeymoon in Bayfield?
Make sure they schedule any kayaking or small boat tours ahead of time so they are not disappointed if they cannot take the tour they want, but don’t over schedule your trip. Most couples enjoy some down time and the Pinehurst Inn is ideal for rest, relaxation and connecting with one another.
