Barb has 20 years experience in the restaurant industry. She retired from her position with Le Peep Restaurant in 2010 where she served as a General Manager for 10 years. Providing great customer service was her primary goal and she played an active role in training her employees to assure it. Barb is a Certified Personal Trainer and ran her own women’s boot camp class from 2007-2010 in Houston during her spare time.

John is retired from the Houston Police Department where he served for 28 years. He joined the force in 1982 and after 4 years of working Patrol, he joined the SWAT Team and remained with that division until his retirement in 2010. John has worked with Secret Service and other dignitary protection groups serving four presidents and numerous high profile individuals. He has a thorough understanding of one’s privacy and security and strives to ensure it.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

John and Barb Murphy are no strangers to the north. John was actually born in Racine, Wisconsin and grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan in Muskegon, Michigan. Barb was raised in northern Michigan on the east shore of Lake Charlevoix in the small town of Boyne City. Career opportunities led them both to Houston separately, where they eventually met, got married and raised a daughter. After 30 years in the big city, it was time to retire. Having spent the latter 10 years searching for the perfect place, and some 10 states later, they ended up in Bayfield on a whim in the summer of 2009. On the advice of a friend, they scouted an area south of Bayfield County. It was a beautiful place but something was missing. One of the locals there suggested visiting Bayfield; so, they packed for a day trip and headed north. Within the first few minutes of arriving they were definitely “Up North”; they knew this was the place: quaint shops; islands; friendly residents; and, of course, the big water - Lake Superior. It was like coming home. With sights set high, they headed back to Houston, sold their home and moved to Bayfield in August of 2010. Their new home and Carriage House Rental is situated on 10 beautifully wooded acres just one mile north of town.

We are located on 10 wooded acres with a 1/2 mile hike/jog trail that runs along the property with it's own creek. We have wildlife on our property including Black Bear, Bobcat, Deer, Coyote, Wolf, Raccoon, and Fox. Our Carriage house is equipped with all the comforts of home and if you need any special requests, we can have it for you in minutes. You will have a 600 sq ft heated garage where you can store your equipment instead of being one of the many unfortunate visitors that have to keep all their toys on or attached to the vehicles. We are next to the Apostle Islands which is controlled by the National Park Service. You will find Seacaves along the islands and mainland. Kayaking, canoeing and boating is a lifetime experience along the Islands. You can paddle to one of the 21 islands and hike or even camp in areas pristine with nature and solitude. Just keep bear wary!

After experiencing the thousands of acres of nature; walk, ride or drive one mile into town and shop at all the shops or eat at one of many restaurants while looking over Lake Superior and the islands. Want more culture?? Take in a show at the Big Top Chautauqua or at Stage North. You will see famous performers as well as our local artists. Don't forget the Bayfield Apple Festival or the Dog Sled Races or the Bayfield in Bloom or the Fall Harvest Celebration or the Blessing of the Fleet or 'whew!' Just too many things to see and do here in Bayfield. Check out our website for more info and pictures at superiorhorizons.

JUST AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
We took our family to visit Bayfield. We stayed at John's and Barb's Carriage House and it was just great. I've never rented a house which was so clean, with so much love to detail and so well equipped. Their knowledge about the area is just great and they customize it for everyone. No matter if you need a hiking map or other informations they provide you. We went on a Kayak Tour with John and it was just amazing. If you want to visit Bayfield that's the place to go to!

WONDERFUL WEEKEND RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Our family decided in February, after hearing so much on the news about the Lake Superior Ice Caves, that we needed to venture north and see them. After searching the VRBO site, we happened upon the Carriage House and emailed Barb and John for more information and booked the house soon after. They were so helpful, sending us websites to keep on eye on in regard to the status of the Ice Caves, along with places to stop and get groceries and things for the weekend on our way up. When we got to the Carriage House, Barb had the garage door opening for us and met us right away to show us around. The house was in immaculate condition and had all the conveniences of home. Our boys loved the selection of games in the lower level. We taught them how to play Battleship on Friday night and they played all weekend when we weren't out exploring! We hated to leave on Sunday after only two nights, but we have vowed to come back again as we so enjoyed our stay here. It was the perfect location to the Sea Caves, Bayfield and the Ashland areas. Great all season getaway and Barb and John are the perfect hosts!

JUST PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Jim and Barb were just amazing. The little house was very clean, up to date and private. It is near their personal residence, but we never felt invaded or unwelcome. They have a great little trail on the property and I great patio to sit out and look at the clear Bayfield sky. We have 4 in our group, including myself, we had plenty of room. It is also not far from town, we rode our bikes. We all plan on going back!

BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Carriage House for the Whistlestop marathon and couldn't have asked for a better place. Barb & John were excellent hosts and pointed us in the right direction for food and fun. John was also kind enough to take us out on the Kayaks on lake superior even w/ the govt shutdown and not being able to get close to the sea caves it was a great experience and absolutely gorgeous.

We look forward to going back during the different seasons and enjoying what Bayfield has to offer.

FALL TOUR

  • 4 of 5
We found the accomodations to be very up to date and also very clean. The beds were excellent. Having a TempurPedic bed to craw into after a long day of touring and hiking makes for a great vacation. Having 1 bathroom was not an issue. A second one in the lower level would have been nice.

RELAXING GET-A-WAY IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful house gives you a feel of being rustic but has all the modern conveniences. It is nestled in the woods just off the main road but gives you the feeling of seclusion. Cozy, clean, quiet, beautifully decorated, and convenient to town. Restaurants we recommend are Ethel's at 250 and Maggie's. You may want to arrive at these places before 6 P.M. as they fill up very quickly. As far as activities it's fun just exploring the shops in Bayfield. The cruise to the Apostle Islands is very interesting, beautiful and worth your time. Peter and Barbara are wonderful hosts. We highly recommend a stay here.
