New for 2021 we are working on an outdoor heated shower and a 14 X 16 tent for groups of 4 with views of Lake Superior. We will listing the second tent as soon as it is ready. 

Escape the city and experience the tranquility of nature. Sanctuary at Little Sand enables you to disconnect from things and reconnect with people and the environment. Try a slice of glamping life in our 12 x 14 Safari tent. Ideal for couples, families and special events. 

Our eco-friendly camping experience gives you the opportunity to experience nature without roughing it. Our eco-glamping tents are set up for simple and fresh comfort with real mattresses, cotton linens and minimal furniture; however at the end of the day, this is still the Northwoods there are mosquitoes and wood ticks (depending on the season). This may not be for everyone, as there are coyotes that howl at night, owls that hoot, a couple of palliated woodpeckers that stay busy, deer, our resident porcupine that likes to roam around the property, the millions of stars and no major modern facilities. We provide a composting toilet and a solar camping shower (upgrading in 2021 to outdoor heated shower), basics for cooking over the fire or a camping stove.  Camping with us means no electricity or running water (we provide drinking water), so come prepared. 

We are 2 miles from the beach at Little Sand Bay, 10 minutes from Meyers Beach and the Caves and 15 minutes away from the town of Bayfield with dining and entertainment opportunities.

I’m not one for reviews, but this place deserves acknowledgement. The site itself was perfect. Clean, organized and isolated. The owners were very helpful in getting me and my daughter situated, while also accommodating some of our scheduling changed. I highly recommend this site to anyone looking for a great little hideaway that’s close to everything Apostle Islands has to offer. As for me and my daughter, we will be back again.

What a wonderfully cozy little girl’s glamping getaway!!! Great hosts, beautiful decor & such a fun first visit to the Bayfield area! Marielena & her husband were very kind and helpful in suggesting restaurants, hiking trails & places on their property to see gorgeous sunsets & sunrises & even the Milky Way Galaxy at night!!!

The mattress was SO comfy & I would spend my whole life on the covered porch if I could. Loved the fall colors & sustainability of this place. Definitely stay here if you get the chance!!

We wanted one last summer trip and this perfectly delivered. From walking the nearby trails to seeing all the beaches along Lake Superior, it was excellent! You will have nearly no cell service and we quickly learned to love it! Cooking on the campfire was something else and hiking to see the sunset was, amazing!

Marielena and Luke were incredible hosts. Had a fantastic time exploring their glamping site which was very close to the apostle islands. I thoroughly enjoyed the glamping site which had a very comfortable bed, fire pit, shower, and auxiliary sunset viewing site. Luke honestly made the trip an amazing experience. From helping with starting fires to carrying our luggage to helping to jump start my car when it’s battery died, Luke was a very attentive and considerate host. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone who is looking to explore around the area or to find a nice getaway from the city. 10/10 experience.

The Sanctuary at Little Sand lives up to the name. Definitely a little slice of heaven. Marielena and Luke are hospitable, friendly people of the earth who felt like immediate old friends sharing their bounty of natural resources and beauty.
While we’re a couple of seasoned campers, the addition of a curious energetic toddler drew us to something a little easier. And it was beyond perfect!
We all had a magical stay at the flower farm and can’t wait to book our next trip!

The site is very quiet and isolated. It’s about 1/4 mile to the parking area but it’s uphill and sandy. The tent comes with a camp stove, but no fuel is provided, so bring propane. The bed is very soft and the two pillows provided are thin. I recommend bringing several extras. Marielena provides a water in a cooler, but there is no electricity. The toilet is a compost toilet, but the outhouse is really dark and cramped.

What a wonderful place Marielena and Luke have created! It's quiet and private--we enjoyed the sound of the wind and owl calls. The tent is well sheltered, they've created an awning so you can sit on the deck and listen to the rain, or you can zip up the tent flaps to keep the wind out. The bed is very comfortable, how special that you can be mostly outside yet sleep in a bed with linens. And the hosts have provided many things to lighten their guests load. We spent our days hiking and our evenings watching sunsets and meteor showers. We LOVED our stay here.

Marielena was a great host, very friendly, and helpful. The area is remote and private on over 100 acres. I enjoyed looking at her flowers she grows and sells, she even gave us some for our anniversary. The canvas tent on a wooden deck is tastefully decorated. The bed is more comfortable then the one we sleep on at home. Their is a deck where we ate our meals and a fire pit to enjoy fires at night. Many things to do in the area. Would highly recommend.
