Overview

Bayfield House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Escape to northern Wisconsin where summer nights are cool, crowds and traffic do not exist, and life is simpler.

Once the great north woods, today this is a rural paradise filled with small treasures that are reminiscent of times past.

Situated 10 miles west of Bayfield at the end of the road lies Raspberry Bay Lake Front House with 265' of lake front and an unobstructed view to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Raspberry bay is shallow with ever changing sand bars which is frequently empty except for the wildlife. Ideal for kids as the water is shallow and warm for Lake Superior. Sit on the shore in an adirondack chair and read a book or just enjoy the tranquility. Looking out to the lake you can see the Raspberry Island lighthouse along with Bear Island, Oak Island, Rocky Island and Otter Island. Take one of our canoes out for a peaceful paddle along the shore or up raspberry slough for some wildlife viewing. Sea kayak right from the house and enjoy good proximity to the 21 islands that make up the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Apostle Islands National Lakeshore has been named the top National Park destination for its untouched natural beauty and large collection of lighthouses. It is possible to launch your boat 4 miles east at Little Sand Bay and anchor it out in front of the house and wade ashore. Bike, run, walk or drive over to Eagle point 3 miles away. Watch and hear the waves crash or lap (depending on the weather) onto the shore from your bedroom. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets and look for the northern lights while you take in the night sky. Celebrate with smores on a crackling campfire and enjoy the outdoors. Expect a very relaxing and memorable vacation experience year round.

5 bedrooms, 3.5+ bathrooms. Fully equipped kitchen. Large screened in porch overlooking the woods and the lake. Upstairs screened in porch is terrific place to sleep outdoors almost like a tent with all the comforts of home. Built in 2010 the home boasts upgraded details including slate floors, tile showers, wide plank wood floors, tongue and groove ceiling, granite counter tops, maple cabinets, stainless appliances, in-floor heat, Fireplace, Woodstove, Outside Firepit, Clawfoot tub in the master, Outside Shower, and Covered Porch to enjoy rainy days.

Black bears are occasionally seen on the beach and wolves are resident to the area. Bald Eagles are common along with loons, mergansers, kingfishers, frogs and white tailed deer. Various waterfowl, woodpeckers and chipmunks add to a woodland setting that soothes the soul. This property is bordered on one side by land carrying a permanent conservation easement which is bordered by a large tract of native american land which also is protected by a permanent conservation easement. From our beach you can gaze down along the headland at natural forest.

About The Owner

We work in the outdoor industry and love nature. Have traveled all over the US and many parts of the world. What we love about Northern Wisconsin is the serenity, the woods, and no crowds.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Northern Wisconsin

This home is a one of a kind property. It seemed like a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy land that borders a large protected natural area with great views, a terrific beach, wildlife, solitude, and privacy. All within 12 minutes of a very quaint town that offers great dining, arts, theatre, and a National Lakeshore.

What makes this house unique

Our kids spend countless hours playing in the lake and swimming. To be able to take a canoe from the house and paddle up the Raspberry River in complete solitude is a treasure. Listening to the waves while laying in bed or hearing loons call in the early morning light is a real treat. If you have ever imagined sitting by a lake and just reading in peace, this is a great place to do that.

What a Wonderful Place for Family and Friends!

  • 5 of 5

We were there with 12 people. This house is very spacious and there was amble room for everyone. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining area had 10 of us around the table and two at the kitchen island. The screened porch off to the side of the dining area was enjoyable to sit in and listen to the sound of the breeze and occassinally two noisy fledgling eagles. It rained one day and we sat in the porch off the dining room and enjoyed the beauty of the rain and the woods.There are many nearby activities in Bayfield, Madeline Island, including tours of the Apostles Island and music at Big Top Chautauqua. If you don't want to go anywhere, the house is a great place to relax and enjoy the outside hot tub. Kelly, the property manager, was quick to respond to any questions we had. Yes this house is as wonderful as everyone says.

Perfect Spot on Lake Superior

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our annual family trip to Bayfield. It could not have been more perfect. We had plenty of space and enjoyed the screen porches and views of the lake from every room. We made use of the canoes and paddled around the bay and relaxed on our own private sandy beach. The owners seemed to put a lot of thought into having everything available to make their rental property welcoming, comfortable and fun. Kelly was a dream to work with and was wonderfully accommodating. We can't wait to go back.

Raspberry Bay Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 couples up for the Apple Festival in Bayfield. We were overwhelmed at the beauty of this property! The house was fantastic, the attention to detail, unique and high qaulity decor was wonderful. There was plenty of room to accomodate us all and the kitchen was fantastic. The views of Raspberry Bay from each room were beautiful, 4 porches to sit and enjoy the fall color, listen to the lapping of the water. A fantastic hot tub nestled in the woods was a great place to relax with a glass of wine! We could not have asked for anything better. We will definatley come back!

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family rented this with high expectations. However, once inside this beautiful house, we were amazed! Wonderful kitchen with great appliances and kitchen tools (I have rented homes that have really dull silly knives, for example). Even had kids plates for our little ones. Amazed by all of the screened in porches and views of the lake. This is an extraordinary house. Want to keep it a secret, however, so it doesn't rent out when we want to return. Great long weekend!

Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful retreat! Our family and friends were absolutely delighted with every aspect of this property. The views, the wonderful layout of the home, the comfortable beds, the cleanliness and maintenance...honestly, there was nothing we would have changed. There were plenty of towels and a very well-supplied kitchen. We were lucky enough to have amazing weather as well, high 80s and a bright blue sky. We canoed, enjoyed the campfire, relaxed in the hot tub and ate every meal in...why would you want to leave? We couldn't recommend this home more highly.
