FROM OUR MAYOR: Bayfield is a small community on the south shore of Lake Superior, the greatest of all the Great Lakes, and our location provides us a perspective that we describe as “Where the Water Meets the Soul.” We are the gateway to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, a beautiful archipelago of enchanting islands. A sustainable and healthy environment is our promise to Lake Superior, our community, and our surrounding countryside. Our hard work in caring for our environment earned Bayfield the 2011 Governor’s Tourism Stewardship Award. This award is presented to a Wisconsin community that uses and promotes the best sustainable practices. A great new addition to the Bayfield Peninsula just occurred in August of 2011 when the new Legendary Waters Casino, Hotel and Convention Center opened. Owned and operated by the Red Cliff Band of Chippewa, the resort is located just three miles north of Bayfield. Orchards, local food and fish, interesting restaurants, comfortable lodging, 22 islands, boats and kayaks, sparkling blue water, biking and hiking trails, a snowy winter and an ice road all help to define our unique community. We invite you to visit Bayfield and the Great Lake and although you may not want to leave, you will understand the pull to return, to come back to Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands.

Bayfield –

A Pioneer in Sustainability

When you visit Bayfield, you’re able to enjoy boundless natural beauty that is as pristine and unspoiled today as it was centuries ago. That’s only possible through Bayfield’s unwavering, community-wide commitment to minimizing our environmental impact. The following are just a few of the steps individual Bayfield businesses are taking toward realizing this goal: • Apple Hill Orchard uses stormwater runoff for irrigation • Artesian House Bed & Breakfast has added solar panels for hot water heating • Apostle Islands National Lakeshore has installed cleaner 4-stroke engines in its snowmobiles and boats, and also use biodiesel-enhanced fuel • Dreamcatcher Sailing is experimenting with replacing diesel auxiliary engines with renewable electric power • Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast provides free, reusable water bottles for guests • The Bayfield community and Bayfield Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Bureau were the first recipients of the Governor's Tourism Sustainability Award at the 2011 Wisconsin Governor's Tourism Conference.

Travel Green Wisconsin is a certification process that guides and inspires businesses to find ways to reduce their environmental impact. Bayfield is proud to be home to more Travel Green certified businesses than any city in the state, including: Lodging Antique Garden Inn The Artesian House LLC Harbor’s Edge Motel The Inn on Madeline Island Island View Inn & Cottage Pinehurst Inn Rittenhouse Inn Seagull Bay Motel Wildflower Cottage 40 Winfield Inn & Gardens Adventures & Attractions Animaashi Sailing Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Bayfield Apple Festival Bayfield Heritage Tours Big Top Chautauqua

A side trip to the South Shore of Lake Superior is a must for visitors visiting the Chequamegon Bay area for the first time. The beauty of the shoreline and the quaint little fishing villages of Cornucopia, Herbster and Port Wing, are fun and interesting. On your way north from Bayfield on Highway 13, you’ll come upon the first South Shore community, Cornucopia, in approximately 20 miles. Here is the western entrance to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. This small, friendly village with its picturesque harbor is famous for clean sandy beaches and beautiful sunsets. Some of the distinctive old fishing sheds on the waterfront have been converted to wonderful gift shops and galleries.

Located a few miles further along on Highway 13 and beach, Herbster is the next community and you will see the area’s beauty as you begin your descent into the Cranberry River Valley. Further along on Highway 13 is the village of Port Wing which is reminiscent of a New England fishing village. In the center of the town is the community park with a gazebo made from the bell tower of the old South Shore School. bayfield visitor guide 2012

From the arrival of the Anishanabe (Ojibwe) on Madeline Island to the boom years of big lumber and commercial fishing, history has left its mark on the Bayfield Peninsula. Bayfield’s rich history can be enjoyed by visiting the Bayfield and Madeline Island Historical Museums or by experiencing a walking tour that includes a variety of historical buildings. Many of Bayfield’s historical homes now operate as bedand-breakfasts or inns, treating guests to the atmosphere of 19th-century life in Bayfield. The distinctive Lake Superior fishing tug was a common sight in the Bayfield Harbor until commercial fishing began a sharp decline in the 1950’s. Now the old fish tugs are greatly outnumbered by sleek pleasure craft.

Bayfield’s own Virginia Hirsch offers several heritage walking tours. See page 49 for schedule.

Through the years, the rise and fall of the fortunes of commercial fishing, quarrying, lumbering, and the comings and goings of a diverse assortment of settlers and visitors, have given Bayfield its unique character.
