The Water Otter Inn will always be our first choice when visiting the Bayfield/Washburn WI area. The accommodations are superb. Colene, the innkeeper and owner, offers freshly brewed coffee and tea in the morning along with a wealth of knowledge about the area. There is a tranquil quality about the place that brings back feelings of growing up in my hometown. I would love to be in Washburn right now enjoying Sassy Nanny goat milk cheese (locally produced) with fresh lavash from Coco Artisan Breads and Fine Pastries. The Inn and the pastry shop are two things that shouldn't be missed in life.
My husband and I stayed while visiting Big Top Chautauqua and touring the Apostle Islands area.
