I wanted to treat my boyfriend to one of my favorite places -- Bayfield. Admittedly, I was a little nervous how the small-town/northern-WI mentality would handle a gay couple. A couple can be less obvious in a restaurant, but checking into a B&B with one bed...well, it's fairly apparent that we're a gay couple.
However, I shouldn't have been nervous. Not once did we receive a sideways glance, a raised eyebrow, or a judgmental tone. Instead, we were warmly welcomed, shown to the best room in the place (XII -- seriously, it's amazing), and invited into the house in all ways.
I'm sure -- whomever you are -- you'll be treated the same: with a warm smile and a generous spirit. We'll definitely be back.
