Nice tour by Maude, small group. Interesting history if the "haunted" locations. We just walked up prior to the start time, no advance tickets needed.

Please do not miss this when visiting Bayfield Wi. Very informative on the people who settled their. Interesting for anyone who likes to hear about the 1800s and how life was in the north woods.

This was a great walk and talk. Our guide kept all ages interested. You can enjoy this for your interest in the paranormal, or just take it as a nice series of stories and buildings which make the history of Bayfield Wi. come to life.

We took the Cemetery ghost story evening, however when we got there our guide directed us all back to the museum in town as they were worried about the weather. At the museum, she set up with the benches there, some additional chairs and pillows....More

Hi Stephanie, Thank you for your review. Yes, I was also disappointed that we moved the storytelling from the cemetery--especially since we only had a small amount of rain--we could have brought out umbrellas for that. Glad that you enjoyed the stories. I just got...More

I wanted to love this experience and I did think the tour guide was sweet, but much of this was boring and a waste of time. Some interesting historical facts but nothing really worth noting about ghosts. I guess I would opt for a historical...More

The best park about visiting Bayfield is the free parking at the Chamber of Commerce grass parking lot. And the bathrooms right next door. What a great little town.
