The ice is gone, time for a summer of green!

Larson Creek Farm - spring

The ice caves were beautiful and so many nice people stayed with us while visiting the ice caves this winter.  But now (most of) the ice is gone, and we are ready for green gardens, green grass and green leaves on trees.

Come and stay with us this summer and see what our Larson Creek Farm comfort and quiet is all about!

And…breaking news…we can now accept credit cards!

The Ice Caves are open!

It’s been five years since the ice has been safe enough for people to make the mile+ hike over to see the ice caves along Lake Superior.  We made the trek on Sunday afternoon and it’s so worth the walk!

Drive east from Port Wing about 18 miles just beyond Cornucopia to Meyers Beach, part of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.  There will be lots of people and cars, but there are also lots of rangers and volunteers to help make it a great experience for visitors.

Bring warm clothes and have your phone/camera all charged up!

Winter Wonderland For Sure

snowy house

It started snowing and two days later it finally stopped.  And two days later still we finally got out of our driveway!  We thought we had a lot of snow last year, but nothing compared to this year and it’s only December!

But it’s beautiful, and so white, and it’s oh-so-quiet up here!

Come and see!

What a beautiful autumn!

Thank you to all our wonderful guests who took a chance on us and our B&B in our first year of business!  With every set of guests that departed for home, we felt like we had made a set of new friends.  It’s been a great summer!

And now it’s the beautiful season of autumn with all that comes with it–colorful leaves, cooler temps, the end of the harvest for our tomatoes and potatoes, and, yes, they are even talking possible snow for this weekend!

Summer in Port Wing

summer2013

Summer is in full swing in Port Wing!  Really hot some days, kinda chilly the next, and absolute perfection in between.  We’ve been harvesting radishes, onions and lettuce, and the cucumbers, tomatoes and squash are coming soon.

Our guests are enjoying our breakfasts made with ingredients from our garden, homemade breads and condiments, and meats and other foods that we buy locally.

Come and see what we’re all about!

It’s almost summer!

The month of June in Port Wing means lupines in pinks and purples and deer venturing out with their fawns.  And temperatures are getting warmer!

Spring is here! The snow is almost gone!

And we welcomed our first B&B guests!  It was our friends John and Jon, and they wanted to be the first paying guests at Larson Creek Farm.  It was one of our many recent, very snowy, weekends, so they almost didn’t get in the driveway!  Fortunately our Town of Port Wing plow arrived in time to clear out another round of snow.

While they were here, they took in the Annual Smelt Fry dinner in Herbster, 7 miles to the east.  (The cold weather meant the smelt weren’t running yet so the dinner actually turned out to be whitefish, but that’s good, too!)   And they got in on some maple sap cooking-off here on Sunday.  During the weekend we served them caramel sticky buns, potato frittata with homemade tomato relish, waffles with freshly-made maple syrup, fresh pineapple, and LOTS of coffee.  We think they were happy! (BTW, they gave us permission to give this update of their stay.)

Opening for guests – January 2013!

We are excited to announce that Larson Creek Farm Bed and Breakfast will be open for guests beginning in January 2013!

We think our little corner of northern Wisconsin is the greatest and want to provide a place for our guests to stay while they enjoy the scenic beauty in and around Port Wing, Wisconsin.

Stay with us while you experience the power of Lake Superior, the tranquil area forests, the rich Scandinavian history of our town, and the friendly service from our area stores and restaurants.

Come and visit!
