Where We Are

Evening show

Our region is a peaceable place; luxurious wild spaces and a fresh environment. A few minutes on or in the waters of the great lake is a fine summer cool down leavng you refreshed and maybe shivering with goose bumps.  
We are home to many creative artists, harvest festivals and participatory sport events  such as The WhistleStop Marathon, swimming, biking, in-line racing, kayaking, skiing, sailing, boating, dog sledding as well as traditional fishing and hunting, and snowmobiling.  
There is always something to learn here.  The Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center gives a terrific introduction to our past and our environment.  Many knowledgeable persons give lectures and meetings to share their special subjects from stewardship of the environment and sustainable food and agriculture, to health care and social issues, crafts and special local features of the lands and waters and their inhabitants.  
The communities on Chequamegon Bay: Cities of ASHLAND, WASHBURN, BAYFIELD,  and the Ojibway Red Cliff and Bad River Reservations, round out life with good colleges, historic districts, indiginous cultures. music festivals, theatres and a hospital.  
Local Transportation:  Leave your car at the motel and ride the BART Bus to Big Top Chautauqua, Washburn and Bayfield. (By prior appointment to Big Top Chautauqua - and at other times, know your schedules!).  Bring your bicylcle: the nearby bike path takes you miles throughout Ashland and along the lake . Or put your kayak or sailboat in down the street for easy access to a lighthouse and Washburn.  And if you love walking, hike the many beautiful forest trails.
So many possibilities!
