A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the country. We watched a beautiful sunset and moon rise from the front yard. Enjoyed the animals, both farm and wild. The room was beautiful, clean and relaxing. Breakfast was very good as well as the pleasant conversation with the other guests and owners at the table. We felt like we were staying... More

A beautiful place on serene setting on a family farm. It was a bit tricky to find when arriving in the evening, and it's a bit of a drive to get to Bayfield from here. The owners were super friendly. The unit was beautiful and spacious. Every window had an amazing view. Ideal if you are looking for a quiet... More

Wonderful experience in this peaceful country getaway. Suite was spacious and very well decorated. Short drive from Ashland, Washburn, and Bayfield. Really enjoyed the time away, would definitely return again.

Second Wind was the perfect home base for the relaxing long weekend that we were looking for on the South Shore. What brought us to the area was the Superior Vistas Bike Tour. I ended up not bringing my bike, but my sister and her friend rode and they said it was well-organized, supported, and would come back to do... More

What a wonderful place to relax and re-connect as a couple! The home itself was cozy, clean and private. Driving up their driveway for the first time made us excited as we said, "We get to stay here!?!" We loved our view out the window (we were on the first floor) and it was so close to local attractions. If... More

Second Wind was a great B & B tucked in the woods of Ashland, WI. It was just a short drive out of Ashland, that made it very easy to get to town and it was close enough to Bayfield if one wanted to explore that area. Kelly and Mark were extremely friendly and accomodating. The breakfast was as great... More

Kelly and Mark truly love what they do. They clearly love people and their attention to the details shows. We stayed in their "Bear" room for two nights. We were lucky enough to find this place for a last minute trip to Bayfield. Will definitely plan a return trip. Oh, and the breakfast was delicious!!

We just booked another Labor Day extended weekend here! The hosts are so kind and accommodate all dietary restrictions and provide incredible breakfasts. They were so sweet and invited my daughter out during her upcoming college freshman year. We obviously loved it because were coming back this year!!!!
