    The Ashwood Bourbon Bar is a newly renovated hotel in Bayfield, with stunning wood features from the local Ash tree. We have live music a few times a month, a gorgeous Bourbon Bar and Restaurant, and an indoor salt water pool for guests. We also have Deer Park Lodge cottages with a private sandy beach on site. Need a shuttle ride to get home safely after dinner? Our Ashwoody shuttle can be arranged for trips into the village on weekends. Check us out at http://www.theashwood.com or stop by today!

    Other local activities : Sandy beaches, endless hiking trails, local farmers market in the Square, Windmill Lake Wake and Echo Park

    I love to garden and my gardens are open by appointment or chance. Photographers are highly recommended to come out and play all day.

    We rent a cottage in Bayfield every year. It’s a quaint town with lots of shops and restaurants to check out. Great spot to unwind from the office. See you in the summer – JG
