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.

we have been visiting the Inn for many years starting in the 90's and we have always found, in spite of an ownership change, a friendly staff, gorgeous rooms, and a little main street bringing smiles to our face. the hotel has the centenary victorian section where the restaurant and some rooms are, plus a carriage house perfect for groups,...

We've been there several times and we always stay in the Select Suites 'cause we bring out dog. It's time for some renos, though. It's an awful lot to charge people for a room that isn't well lit, tired looking furniture, and old bathrooms. If we're going to spend 1,000 dollars for two nights (included a dinner and 2 breakfasts)... More
