Steps to the Beach & Everything Else Bayfield Has to Offer
Looking for a perfect spot to serve as your "home base" for your escape to the Bayfield Peninsula? Look no further - this property has it all! This second floor (top floor) studio condo unit features views of Lake Superior, full bathroom, well-equipped kitchen, private balcony overlooking the lake & beach below, queen Murphy bed and sofa bed in the open-plan living/dining/kitchen, and even air conditioning for those rare toasty Bayfield summer days.
Your host runs Bark Point Ventures, a vacation rental management & concierge company that specializes in properties all along Lake Superior's South Shore. We live nearby and is available whenever needed to assist our guests. Our passion is ensuring guests experience the magic of what we feel is one of the most amazing places in the world.
Located on the beach right in downtown Bayfield. You can walk to a wide range of locally-owned shops, restaurants, galleries, and museums. And yet the condo is set far enough away from the main drag to not feel like you're too in the middle of everything.
One of our favorite features is the wonderful community garden that is adjacent to the condo building. There's few better places in the warmer months to enjoy a book or just take in the gorgeous flowers & plants in this "secret garden" setting.
One parking space per unit is provided in the parking lot. Street parking is also readily available except during the fall Applefest celebration.
Bayfield is a very walkable city, so your best bet is on foot. We are just a couple blocks from all the shops and restaurants in downtown Bayfield.
The following shuttles and ferries are also accessible on foot from Reiten Boatyard:
- The Madeline Island Ferry will take you out to Madeline Island and runs regularly during the late spring, summer, fall, and much of the winter.
- The BART Bus runs regularly from through Bayfield and around Chequamegon Bay for a modest fee.
- Big Top Chautauqua runs shuttles for most of for their concerts and events.
This is a second (top) level studio condominium with outside stairs to the unit. The unit features a very comfy queen-size Murphy bed (let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep!), sofa (with sofa bed), dining table & chairs, fully-equipped kitchen, full bath, and lovely private deck overlooking the lake & beach below.
The unit also features a rarity in the area: air conditioning, as well as high-speed wifi.
Due to the lack of public transportation and the distance between towns/amenities, a car is pretty much essential. But, on the plus side, traffic is not a concept we have up here!
Walk to downtown shops and restaurants, ferry terminal and recreation center.
Off street parking in lot for one car. Plenty of street parking available, except during Applefest weekend in October. Less than 15 minute drive to Mt. Ashwabay ski hill, Big Top Chautauqua, hiking trails, beaches, and more.
Public transportation on the peninsula is provided by the Bay Area Rural Transit (BART), more information can be found on their website.
An EV charging station is located in the parking lot on the corner of Washington Ave. and E. 6th St. in Washburn.
