OH! SPRING IS HERE. Now on to a summer of exploration and activity. Please see the
visitor information links at the bottom of this page.
Call us or email us for information.
firstname.lastname@example.org Note: We do not use any web-based reservation systems. When a site reports that no rooms
are available at Bayview, it only means they do not have us as a client.
take pride in making your visit to the region pleasant.
Your room is spotlessly clean and of simple charm. Our lake shore is rocky but
We look forward to welcoming you this summer.
Note in photo below,
the rooms appear to be separate cabins. They are, really, just connected rooms with a step-down.
Eight guest rooms of 1950s Knotty Pine. Simply furnished and
cleaned till they’re shiny and bright.
- Our swimming "pool" is the biggest fresh water
lake in the world - just out the door, across the lawn. Our grassy lawn lets you stretch your legs.
Rooms have coffee, hair dryers, TV, refrigerator
and microwave. Plus, A/C if
the lake breeze isn’t enough. One
room has kitchenette.
How is this for "reasonable"?? Bring your own bottle of shampoo. Not sure why we balk
at this, but usually people like their own choices.
Wireless internet. (no phones in rooms,
though you can borrow ours)
Our rooms look out on wise old trees (arborvitae) native to our Boreal forest. They shade your room from
the afternoon sun and bring bird songs to your window. Other plants will introduce you to species native to our area
and familiar to the 4-footed locavores!.
Our rocky little beach on the Bay is a respite
from heat and city living. We won't claim any designed or built beauty, but there is the music and motion of the
waves and the breezes. Bring marshmallows and build a fire in a pit next to the water - driftwood
keeps drifting in to supply your fuel. On sunny days, a sunset over the lake is available for free.
Pet Friendly or Allergic? We
allow pets in only two rooms. A fee of $15 pays for cleaning to remove chance of pet dander. If you
have pet allergies, please let us know and we will ensure that you get a room that has not had pets in it.
No smoking applies in all rooms.
A cleaning fee is charged if guests smoke in rooms.
Each room has its own personality. Our kitchenette (shown)
has a queen bed and sunflowers and roosters. Other rooms have one queen bed, two queen beds or two double
beds. We update each season to keep things fresh, so you may not have a room exactly as you see it here.
Our region is a peaceable place; luxurious wild spaces and a fresh
environment. We are home to many creative artists, harvest festivals and participatory sport events such as marathons,
swimming, biking, kayaking, skiing, sailing, boating, dog sledding as well as traditional fishing and hunting. - The
Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center gives a terrific introduction to our past and our environment.- The 3 communities
on Chequamegon Bay: ASHLAND, WASHBURN, BAYFIELD, round out life with good colleges, historic districts, music festivals, theatres and a hospital. Ideas
live here, too - sustainability and environmental stewardship and trending movements like local agriculture and food
and wineries and beer. -Local Transportation: Leave your car at the motel and ride the BART Bus to Big Top Chautauqua or between Ashland,
Bayfield and Washburn. Or ask us if we have bicycles this year that you can use to access the bike path across the street
that takes you throughout Ashland's points of interest. Or bring your own, knowing there are places to go. Flying
in? If the airport car isn't available, call us for a pick up at the airport. Or put your kayak or sailboat in
down the street and beach it on our lakefront, for easy access to a lighthouse and Washburn. - So many possibilities!
We want to officially join the
Green movement, but need the cooperation of our guests. We hope you will spend a few days in an old fashioned and simple plastic- and chemical-free place and enjoy helping our forests, animals and waters,
- We encourage you to bring a big jug to fill with
artesian water from one of the wells in town, rather than buy bottles of water.
We can lend you a little picnic
basket of utensils that are not disposable. Just ask.
Please help by turning off lights,
tv and other electrical devices.
- Dispose of your in separate containers we
We clean with "green"
natural products for health and environmental reasons.
Thanks - hope to see you soon!
