This lovingly maintained private home in an ideal location features a wall of windows, exposed beams and an expansive deck that overlooks Lake Superior, Madeline and Long Islands. A large public sand beach, golf course, ski resort, mountain biking and hiking trails, art gallery and Pike's Bay Marina are all within two miles of the home.
The charming town of Bayfield is four miles north, featuring shops, restaurants, and a 20 minute ferry ride to Madeline Island, which can be seen from the home. The town of Washburn is six miles to the south with more restaurants, shopping, an art gallery and a playhouse.
The main level boasts breathtaking views of Lake Superior from the screened in porch, kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. The well appointed A-frame home welcomes visitors with a large great room, vaulted ceiling and large beams provides expansive views of the lake, woods, and Apostle Islands in the distance.
The kitchen is fully equipped including a dedicated ice maker and island with seating in addition to the large dining room table. The main level also features a large screened in porch with comfortable seating plus additional seating for meals overlooking the lake. The main level is completed with a field stone wood burning fireplace, and a laundry room in addition to the three bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
The second level loft with its A frame ceiling is a perfect place for kids to play, adults to check in with the office (desk and printer are available), or to sip a cup of coffee and enjoy the sunrise.
In addition to a front porch with rocking chairs, the deck facing the lake extends the full length of the home, providing multiple places to take in the view, watch sailboats glide by, or enjoy a beverage while listening to the wind in the trees. Gas and charcoal grills are available, in addition to four sets of golf clubs (two for youth, two for adults.)
There are three bedrooms on the main level sleeping a total of 6 (king, full, and two twin beds) and two full bathrooms. On the lower level there are two bunk room style bedrooms, each sleeping six, a full bathroom, pool table, darts, bar, and a walkout to the fire pit and back yard.
The home is close to town but feels like civilization is far away. It is on a private road with two other homes, and is completely secluded - nothing but trees, water, and islands on all sides.
This is the perfect home for those who want to sit by the fire and read or savor the view from the deck with a glass of wine, and also a great fit for those who love to hike, bike, kayak, golf, ski, shop, or beach comb.
The town of Bayfield has a wonderful "Cape Cod" feel and the nearby cities of Washburn and Ashland offer additional options for shopping, dining and recreation. Other activities include apple and berry picking in the summer and fall, boat rentals at one of the many marinas, art galleries, and a casino 20 minutes from the home.
We hope you will consider staying at our "Superior Escape!" We believe that once you walk through the door and see the view, you will love it as much as we have.
