The Pinehurst B&B was an incredible find in Bayfield, WI. Steve and Nancy are wonderful people and really do make you feel welcome in their "home away from home". My husband and I love to know the history of the places that we stay in, and Steve never let us down when we had questions about the house, or certain items in the house. You can really tell that Steve loves the place, and he lights up when talking about Pinehurst.
Nancy's breakfasts make you feel really pampered, and I know that they buy local because we caught Steve out and about one day. Delicious breakfasts!
We traveled with our 11 year old daughter. We were very fortunate to get the Catherine Rittenhouse Room/Suite. It is on the 3rd floor of the B&B and is quite comfortable. It was a bit hot outside but no worries. There is an ample room air conditioner that kept us really cooled. I'll mention that there is a whirlpool in the bath room that has room for 2. A nice feature if you're traveling sans kids. Our daughter LOVED the futon bed and felt that she had her own section of the suite.
The Pinehurst is very closely located to the downtown; within a few miles. We took the ferry over to Madeline Island and swam at the "over a mile long" white sand beach at the State Park. It was gorgeous! The water of Lake Superior is soooo clear and, because the depth is very gradual at this beach, it wasn't very cold. Superior has a reputation for being incredibly cold. The water was wonderful.
We had a great time, spending 3 days. Oh, and if you get a chance, make sure that you eat at Maggie's downtown. A fun place with good food and a great staff!!
