To the Apostles and Beyond

To the Apostles and Beyond

This new listing near Bayfield, Wisconsin is located on the highest point in Bayfield County.  It’s also just a couple miles inland from Bayfield.  Even on a hazy summer afternoon, you can see the Apostle Islands from your bedroom window.  On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least to the outermost of the Apostle Islands, which happens to be named Outer Island.  As the gull flies, that’s about 35 miles.

The home itself is as spectacular as the view.  It’s a low-maintenance, high-efficiency, super-insulated, 3,447 sq ft retreat that’s built to last and designed for living.  This home is surrounded by pines and oaks—and by lupines and other wildflowers.  It’s also surrounded by deer and other wildlife.  Fortunately, the huge garden—complete with raised beds, garden shed, and walkways—is completely surrounded by its very own deer-proof fence.

The home is secluded, private, and quiet—despite being just five minutes from the dining, entertainment, galleries, and other amenities of downtown Bayfield.  To learn more about this exciting new listing, click here: 34785 Fire Tower Rd, Bayfield, WI..  Or, for a quick video tour, click below.

When it comes to lakeshore properties… a few nice listings in NW Wisconsin

By the way…  When it comes to lakeshore properties, I’m currently listing some nice lake homes, cabins, and buildable lots with addresses like West Shore Lane, Moose Lake Road, Lyndale Bay Road, Saint Croix Road, Flowage Lane, and Loon Lake Road.  You can tell from their addresses that these properties are probably on the water.

Some of my other waterfront properties, however, have addresses like Pine Oak Road, Ewig Lane, Acorn Drive, Timber Ridge Drive, Walter Road, and Highway Y.  From the address alone, you’d never guess they’re lake homes, cabins, or buildable lakeshore lots.

But as for my Bayfield County listing on Fire Tower Road…  (And did I mention it’s on the very highest spot in Bayfield County?  And that it’s just five minutes from Bayfield?)  With an address like that, you can tell the view is going to be spectacular.

In Bayfield Wisconsin, This Home Literally Stands Above All Others

With an Address Like Fire Tower Road

With an address like Fire Tower Road, you can tell the views are probably going to be spectacular.  After all, that’s where the fire tower used to be.  Here’s the story…  When it gets dry around here, much of our aerial surveillance is now done from small planes.  Only a few of the original fire towers are still in use; most have been gone for decades.  The only trace that remains is the name of the roads that led to them.  Every county has at least three or four “fire tower roads,” and they all lead to the highest ground around.

Homes that have been built anywhere near the sites of these old fire towers are likely to have some of the most spectacular views you’ll find anywhere.  Take, for example, this spectacular home that’s built on the highest 20 acres in Bayfield County.  And since it’s just a couple miles inland from Bayfield, Wisconsin, it offers an incredible view of the surrounding countryside, Lake Superior, and the mostly-uninhabited Apostle Islands.  On a clear day you can see for over 30 miles—all the way to Outer Island.

This time of the year the view from here is mostly blue sky, sky-blue waters, and unbroken forest.  You’ll see one or two farm fields, plus the occasional sailbout threading its way through the Apostles.  That’s about it.  And I can’t wait to see the fall colors from here.

The home itself is as spectacular as the view.  It’s a low-maintenance, high-efficiency, super-insulated, 3,447 sq ft retreat that’s built to last and designed for living.  The lupines are still blooming, and this home is surrounded by them.  It’s also surrounded by deer and other wildlife.  Fortunately, the huge garden—complete with raised beds, garden shed, and walkways—is completely surrounded by its very own deer-proof fence.

The home is secluded, private, and quiet—despite being just five minutes from the dining, entertainment, galleries, and other amenities of downtown Bayfield.

An Introduction to Madeline Island

Bayfield and Madeline Island might be a fun destination for your next vacation—or even just a weekend getaway.

Located in Lake Superior just off Wisconsin’s North Coast, Madeline Island is a popular tourist destination.  The largest of the 22 Apostle Islands, it’s 14 miles long and 3 miles wide.  It’s the only one of the islands with commercial development or permanent habitations.

You’ll be on the island’s rugged northern shore, a quiet, secluded part of the island that’s rarely seen by tourists.  Most visitors tend to spend their time in the area in and around La Pointe.  Other popular attractions are Big Bay State Park and Big Bay Town Park.  Both are on the south side if the island; they share the same 1 ¼ mile sandy beach, and offer camping, swimming, hiking, and paddling.

On the island, you’ll find a wide range of entertainment and dining options.  Other attractions include shopping and galleries, walking tours, boat tours and fishing charters, hiking trails, a historical museum, an equestrian facility, and canoe, kayak, bike, or moped rentals.

Over on the mainland, Bayfield is home to dozens more galleries, shops, and restaurants.  You’ll also want to check out the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua and the Isle Vista Casino.  The Bayfield area is home to over a dozen orchards and berry farms; come October, you’ll want to get in on the Bayfield Apple Festival.

To learn more about Madeline Island, you can visit the Chamber of Commerce website at www.madelineisland.com.  From there, you’ll find links to the Madeline Island Ferry Line, the Apostle Islands National Seashore, local restaurants and galleries, and various other attractions.  To learn more about Bayfield, visit www.bayfield.org.
