Full description

Bayfield, a picturesque town on Lake Superior's shores, holds secrets beyond its scenic beauty. The Bayfield Ghost Tour is your ticket to uncovering the mysteries that dwell in the shadows of this charming community.

Sample Itinerary:

  • Old Bayfield Courthouse: The iconic brownstone courthouse, which today serves as the regional office for the National Park Service and headquarters for the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Visitor Center, is rumored to be haunted. Employees still admit to harrowing ghostly encounters after hours.
  • The Knight House: The site of a rarity, a romantic ghost story, a testament to the undying love story of William and Jessie Knight. Residents, contractors, and houseguests have reported encounters with apparitions over the years.
  • Le Château Boutin: Built for Bayfield's first millionaire Frank Boutin, Jr. in 1908, today some guests of this beautiful B&B report paranormal happenings. The alleged haunting involves what appears to be residual energy or a glimpses into the past sometimes referred to as time slips.
  • Greunke’s First Street Inn: Built in 1865 for Nazaire LaBonte, this wood frame residence was later converted into a boarding house. Now the inn hosts guests and resident ghost nicknamed “Irene.” She's blamed for anything unusual that happens and sometimes tickles the toes of guests while they're under the sheets.
  • Wild By Nature/Howl: The old A. C. Hayward building houses Wild by Nature, a restaurant, and Howl, an outdoor apparel shop. A female figure sometimes appears at Wild by Nature, a mischievous spook nicknamed Fred pranks customers at Howl, and a diminutive skeleton in a child-sized coffin dressed as a turn-of-the-century bride once resided in the former antique shop in the basement.
  • Morty's Pub: Jolly bar owner Maurice "Morty" Baldwin loved his customer, employees, and place of business. The current owners believe he never really left. In fact, Morty seems to enjoy ribbing the staff with his haunted hijinks.
  • Andy's Grocery: Andy's IGA isn't only the place to shop for local delicacies like apple brats, it's also a hidden haunt. Founded by former childhood sweethearts, Andy and Fern, during the Great Depression, the mom-and-pop-butcher-shop-turned-grocery persists. And, apparently, so do Andy and Fern, who still occasionally make themselves known.
