We first stayed here in the early 90's. Old charm and food. Upscale. Nice dining. English feel. Old style rooms. No air, phone, or entertainment. Good place to just get away from it with quietness in mind.

On our last trip to Bayfield we stayed at the Little Inn Annex across the street from the main building. It perpetuates that deep-south feeling that is prevalent in Bayfield; the wood is somewhat mossy, the building is mostly in shade and you really get that dripping-with-history feeling, not unlike New Orleans. If you are assigned a loft room, please... More

Had a two night stay there last month as a treat from my sister and brother in law whom we had been visiting in Mississauga. As they have a small dog they were given a room in the guest accommodation whilst we were given Room 10 in the main building. As we unpacked I was totally amazed to find that... More

We spent a night here after attending a wonderful musical at the Huron County Playhouse outside of Grand Bend. The staff were friendly and attentive. We stayed in room 9. It was spacious with a large balcony overlooking the back gardens of the inn. The bath was very large with a walkin shower and large oval soaker tub. The facilities... More

One night romantic stay was fantastic. Food and service was excellent. Beach a short walk away (do drive south to more beach access that is more private). Stuck around on Sunday for the buck-a-shuck, well worth it. Room was lovely.

This little gem at lake Huron definitely exceeded my expectations. We travelled with family for a weekend and were impressed by the property. It gives a feeling of authenticity and luxury. The Little Inn is very well maintained, clean, comfortable, and is in a perfect location - close to the beach and the town center. Their restaurant deserves a separate... More

The inn is newly renovated. We stayed in room 10 which had no closet or a place to hang your clothes other than 3 hooks. It was fine for us, but some may not like that. The tub was huge and the king size bed was divine. Breakfast is included and is made to order. The Eggs Benedict was yummy... More

Had a great 3 night getaway at the Little Inn. Stayed at the guest cottage which was lovely and quiet with nice private terrace. Food was outstanding for all meals. Made me want to hug the chef.

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon and we could not have picked a better place. First of all, the breakfast! WOW! Best breakfast ever. The rooms were great, clean, and very accommodating.

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.
