Baytown Style

One of our favorite aspects about Bayfield is that everything is set back in time, being up north does separate us from the hustle of modern life. Bayfield is an idyllic harbor town on Lake Superior that draws folks of all ages and different journeys.

The abundance of creativity that resides in the Chequamegon Bay area is outstanding. The avenues of making are endless, with mediums and natural materials available at our fingertips.
