“comfortable and relaxing”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Second Wind is clean, comfortable and relaxing.
The breakfast is incredibly tasty and the conversation pleasant. Kelly and Mark are very approachable people. Don't pack any books. They have plenty of those, as well as games for you to enjoy.

This B&B made us feel refreshed the minute we walked in. Stayed in "Little Scandinavia" which was roomy and comfortable with a relaxing living room (sans TV), bedroom, bathroom and kitchen--all simply and thoughtfully decorated. My husband is 6'2" and he never had to hunch down to walk through a doorway or enjoy a nice, warm shower. What a pleasant surprise for him! All the thoughtful items tucked away for guests to discover--books, games, etc.--helped us focus on what is really important in life. We were blessed to have such a warm place to rest so close to family in Ashland. We missed out on their legendary breakfasts--an opportunity to mingle with our innkeepers and other guests--but hope to return to Second Wind for that pleasure. We were truly blessed.

We found this lovely B&B by accident and it totally made our weekend! The accommodations were lovely and the home truly welcoming. I was a little leery of staying at a Bed & Breakfast do to a past experience (which I had found a little creepy!), but this experience was just the opposite. The rooms were very clean and well decorated. The food was amazing and I enjoyed the fact you could socialize with the other guests in the Gathering Room if you wanted, or you could have a very private, romantic night with your spouse. I can't wait to go back to this location!

We found this place while looking for a place to stay over the busy Labor Day weekend near Bayfield, WI. This turned out to be a real find. Not only were Kelly and Mark great hosts, but they served such a wonderful breakfast of shirred eggs and raspberry scones. It was the best meal of our whole vacation! The two bedroom loft was more space than we needed, but wow such a well decorated and beautiful place. The view was also amazing - horses and all! They only had one night available, but we wished we could have stayed longer. They even had a little gift shop where we bought a sweatshirt and Kelly's recipes. I hope my children and grandchildren come here sometime. They would love it! BTW don't miss the amazing murals on the buildings in Ashland. A wonderful walking tour of interesting art.

Room Tip: I'm sure all rooms are great here.

As everyone else in this forum has commented, the owners (Mark and Kelly) are really nice, down-to-earth people. They made us feel comfortable, and the rural landscape was beautiful. Kelly made some spot-on recommendations for dining in Ashland, and a recommendation for a sweet spot on the lake. Breakfast was very good and in a relaxed atmosphere. The only negative was that I was too late in booking my reservation, and the lofts were all booked (long weekend). So we ended up with a room on the ground floor, and I am very sensitive to noise. The tramping by fellow visitors above us kept me up a while. But, I suppose, that is to be expected on the ground floor.

We stayed in the Bear Den on the first floor. It was extremely clean and welcoming and had it's own air conditioning unit. Both of our breakfasts were wonderful especially the scones and I couldn't believe my husband asked for a second helping of the rhino hides! Before we arrived I injured my knee. Kelly had ziploc bags ready without asking and we had a big ice machine to use in the first floor meeting room. We regretted not being able to walk out to see the animals but the donkeys put on a great show for us a few times that we watched from our bedroom windows and all the animals, fields and barns looked very clean. We were happy with the restaurants recommended for dinner in town and the places Mark thought we might enjoy seeing. It was a delight to stay somewhere that wasn't Victorian - not that we don't enjoy that also - but it was a nice break. Mark and Kelly were wonderful and I can't say enough good things about our whole experience there. I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

After watching the amazing sunset over Lake Superior, we were greeted by a majestic horse galloping up the driveway of Second Wind, it's beautiful mane flowing. Later, after returning from dinner at a nearby restaurant, we joined the other guests and innkeepers around the firepit and viewed the stars of the Milky Way. Before leaving the next day, we toured the property which included a covered wagon, the rest of the horses and many other farm animals. The entire experience, including a delicious breakfast, was very enjoyable.
