Historic Estate Near Lake Superior

Private, Vintage Cottages

Our Property

The Inn at Timber Cove is located on the South Shore of Lake Superior in Ashland, Wisconsin. Located one mile up from Lake Superior, the estate originally was part of a large piece of land given to an Ashland resident in return for militia duties during the Civil War. The original working of the deed was done in 1862 by then-President Abraham Lincoln. The first recorded structure was built around 1906 whereafter a prominent Chicago lawyer began curating the property in the 1920s. This gentleman is responsible for giving the estate the name, Timber Cove.


Our inn features three, private cottages - all original to the estate. Each cottage has a gas fireplace, small kitchen area, our famous Timber Cove coffee, and cozy views of the estate. Breakfast is not included.

"We headed to Bayfield for shopping and eating and kayaking, but the favorite part of our trip was our two days at The Inn at Timber Cove. It was so restful, and beautiful and a step back in time when life seemed simpler. Brian and Tina provided a lovely respite for weary travelers and a place to revel in God's creation."
