I was born and raised in Wisconsin and this piece of property is truly my favorite place in the whole state. Tina and Brian (the owners) are two of the most gracious, generous, and talented people I know. Tina's meals and night-time desserts are outstanding. I have been a return-customer at least four times and plan to visit again in the future.
My most recent stay was with my husband. We visited on a weekend in September--the weather was gorgeous. We arrived at 8pm, checked in after a warm greeting from Tina and Brian, and were ushered to our room--the Guest House. Waiting for us on the kitchen table were three large pieces of blackberry wine cake. I made decaf coffe, turned on some classical music that we could hear throughout the house and we relaxed after our 3 hour drive up to Ashland. The big comfy chairs in the sitting area of the house are so comfortable and a perfect setting for kicking up your feet, flipping through a magazine or book and even (when it's chilly) turning on the fire place.
In the morning, Tina brought us our breafast on a tray. It was the "Farmer's" breakfast of scrambled eggs with melted cheese, sausage rounds and toast with raspberry jam. There were also two miniature pears and some delicious coffee and cranberry juice. As always, Tina's mouth-watering morning fare left us full for well into the afternoon.
At Tina and Brian's recommendation, we visited Little Girl's Point in Michigan, Superior Falls and then toured Bayfield (all in one day!). We returned to the Inn to rest a bit before heading back out to Main Street Ashland for a delightful and delicious meal at Deep Water Grill. Upon returning from dinner, Brian asked us if we would like a fire out in their common yard area just off the main house and guest house. We agreed and he lit a fire just for the two of us. It was so nice to sit and relax with the stars twinkling overhead and their dogs sitting with us. Tina and Brian joined us and we had good, encouraging conversation.
I cannot say more about Inn at Timber Cove. It is a place of peace, healing, joy, beauty and renewal. Make a reservation soon!
