Took grand tour to islands. Captain was very informative about islands. Bayfield WI is a very laid back peaceful town. Quick ferry to Madeline island for a day trip was fun. Recommend a visit anytime.

This a great getaway! Being on the island offers a slow paced relaxing weekend. Bike, swim, hike, and walk the beaches of Lake Superior.
