Escape the city and experience the tranquility of nature. Sanctuary at Little Sand enables you to disconnect from things (no cell signal or WIFI available) 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 sunset, owls that hoot, flying squirrels, 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, basics for cooking over the fire or a camping stove (bring your own fuel).  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.

We loved our first glamping experience! It felt private and natural with beautiful forest, wildflowers, great views, raspberries to pick and eat, and a warm, cozy bed.

I loved this campsite! They had everything you could need—cooking equipment (pans, silverware, plates, biodegradable soap), bug repellent, and a super comfy bed. Can’t recommend this site more.

The site was secluded and on a beautiful property with trails, tons of wild raspberries, and a flower farm. We had so much fun exploring the local waterfalls and sea caves. The bugs were not bad at all for late July and there was an amazing view of the stars at night.

We loved our stay at little sanctuary. The site was quiet and peaceful. It was also close to great hiking, kayaking, and restaurants. We were coming from out of state so it was nice that they had almost everything we needed.

We are back home after a magical Thursday-Monday Sanctuary stay, and I am missing the rhythm of our days on Little Sand Bay. Our hosts’ grand canvas tent and thoughtful amenities (incredibly comfortable beds and bedding, bathroom, tables and chairs, campfire, deck, and so much screened space inside the tent to fully relax and lounge in) provide a true shelter so that our family of four would love to live all through summer there, soaking up Lake Superior’s South Shore. This was our 3rd visit to Sanctuary (we returned after 2 previous idyllic summer stays with our young children—now 8 yrs and 5 yrs old), and this time we got to experience the new site, atop a breezy hill with sunset and lake views! We all slept so well each night with cool night air and forest sounds like a lullaby, and the comfort of the shelter made a summer rainstorm especially lovely. Our hosts’ thoughtfulness and creativity shine bright in the experience their sites offer, and we feel very fortunate that they have chosen to share so much with us. Mil gracias!!!

Little Sand was solitude and nature! We had 40 acres to ourselves, and the tent was sturdy and comfortable to withstand a thunderstorm and provide us rest after exploring the Apostle Islands. It was just 2 miles from the kayak launch spot where we’d planned to kayak. Our hosts were so hospitable and respectful and helpful!
