Around The Area

Whether you're looking for peace and quiet or an outdoor adventure, The Timber Baron Inn is the place for you! Located three miles south of Bayfield,  the Inn sits at the foot of Mt. Ashwabay. We have premiere access to the CAMBA cluster mountain biking trails, Big Top Chautauqua, and Mt. Ashwabay's downhill and cross-country ski trails.  Not to mention all that Bayfield, "The Best Little Town in the Midwest," has to offer.  Whether on land or on the great lake, The Timber Baron Inn and the surrounding area are sure to make your getaway a memorable one!


Jump on your bike and leave right from our Inn, as The Timber Baron Inn has premiere access to the CAMBA (Chequamegon Area Moutain Biking Association) Ashwabay Cluster of single track mountain biking trails.  The Ashwabay Cluster consists of 12 miles of mapped routes through our beautiful forests.  Visit for more information.



Nighttime entertainment must not be overlooked.  Big Top Chautauqua is one of Bayfield's best summer and fall attractions. The big blue tent has attracted artists like Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and B.B. King, along with local and regional artists.  Check out the 2019 season line-up here at


Mt. Ashwabay Recreation Area is located just out our back door and is home to 13 downhill slopes, 40 km of groomed cross country ski trails, and a tubing hill.  From beginner to expert there is something for everyone!

Nothing says "Once in a lifetime winter adventure" more than guided dogsledding. Channel your inner White Fang with Wolfsong mushers and then come cozy up by the fireplace in our great room with hot refreshments and our never ending homemade cookies.

If an adventure by water is more your style we encourage you to explore the lake we call Gitchee Gumee. Throw your towel on a nearby beach, paddle to the sea caves (located off Meyers Beach), or venture out to one of the Apostle Islands either by kayak or by boat. Kayak rentals available here. Boat rentals available here.
