The Little Inn came highly recommended to us so we decided to stay there early in June. Our room was in the guest lodge so we didn't get to see much of the recent renovations. The guest lodge is in dire need of a facelift which I'm sure the new owners will get to when they can. The staff was... More

We a delightful stay. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our meals were exceptional! I would give this five stars except there was some small inattention to detail that I would not expect from a top flight property. Large well appointed bath, but no soap. Kuerig coffee service but no cream and sugar. These small things should not deter anyone... More

We read with some trepidation that the Little Inn had changed hands. There was no need to worry. Everything that has been changed, has been changed for the better - keeping all the beauty and elegance that is the Little Inn. Our room was furnished with contemporary comfortable furniture mingled with lovely authentic antiques. The bathroom! One of the largest... More

First time back to the Little Inn with the new owners and all the renovations. We were very cautious because we loved our stay/food/atmosphere of our last visit summer of 2014. At first glance minor renovations were done to the main floor of the inn which is nice, still have the warm welcoming feeling from the past. We were offered... More

The staff at the inn are fantastic, they were lovely to us and our kids. We had a whirlpool room and it was ok, the pull out sofa mattress had seen better days, and the plumbing needs some upgrades as the taps were coming off in our room. The air conditioning was wonderful and worked well, and the bed in... More

The Little Inn at Bayfield just opened after some extensive renovations. Great job -- it looks lovely and all the amenities are in place (as long as you aren't looking for a pool, sauna, all that stuff!). The service is nothing short of incredible. We needed a chair or stool for the room and one was found for us within... More

I have been visiting Bayfield since I was a baby, and now that I live in Arizona the visits are less frequent but stopping in at the Little Inn still never disappoints. Such a cute and cozy atmosphere with an unbelievable restaurant and right in the heart of the little town. Even just sitting in the bar for a drink... More

We've been staying at the Little Inn for fourteen years. It is our little bit of "heaven on earth". Just hope the new owners don't destroy or neglect what made this wonderful little escape so special. We will be watching carefully, please remember what we loved.
