I was in the area for a workshop, but wanted a place "out of town" for a peaceful retreat in the evenings. Tom’s homestead is so welcoming, and I loved my cozy cabin. Its the old creamery on a farm, and is equipped with a futon sleeper, comfy chairs, a sink, picnic table and lawn chairs. Tom also has a Bed and Breakfast on the proerty. Tom is so great to talk to, and his property is an old dairy farm on country land with wildlife ponds and miles of trails you can hike or cross county ski. Great birdwatching everywhere! The whole place is restful and meditative. My little cabin even had an en suite sauna that I hope to try out next time I come! No bathroom in cabin, but you can go inside the host home, and also use the kitchen and family room there. Ashland is about a 15 minut drive, Bayfield about 30 minute drive. Lovely spot to stay, I’ll be back!
