Great location and value for visiting the Apostle Islands Ice Caves. 30 minute drive to the parking lot at the Ice Caves using County Highway C. Several restaurants nearby. Clean and comfortable room. Very friendly owners. There is a snowmobile trail right behind the motel but did not hear any sleds after 9:30 p.m. Very quiet, especially for a Saturday.... More

We made a spontaneous decision to go see the ice caves near Bayfield Wi. Checked the internet for a place to stay. We didn't want to spend alot of money on a stay for basically sleeping. We arrived late and left early. What we liked most about this place was the kitchenette. They had everything you would need to make... More

We didn't make any reservations on this trip, which was not a smart move on our part. We had to find a place to stay on the fly, we drove past this place one way, and there were no vacancies, on the way back, they had 1 room. The place is dated, which I will state over & over means... More

We (my husband and I and dog) agreed upon a rate with North Coast Inn & Chalets, Washburn, WI, got the keys, and moved in. The very next day, I got a phone call from the lady screaming at me and calling me a liar. Oh, and our dog’s urine is going to kill her grass and trees (my dog... More

This is really an old motel like the one's my parents took me to I the 60's. The bed was extremely comfortable and felt pretty new....must have been the newest furniture there. The adirondack chairs outside the rooms were nice but the view of Hwy 13 isn't great. This is about what I expected for the area and the price... More

Unique..unique..old yes..but unique. My son's family needed a last minute place to stay this last Friday as they were going to join us camping. The North Coast Inn & Chalet had one night available in their chalet setting. This is four units around a large common area that has tables, chairs, sofas, fireplace/stove, games,and unique decorations.$114 a night. It was... More

This is a slice of Old Wisconsin. Not only is the location great for exploring the area on foot bike or boat, the hosts are friendly and helpful. Rates are reasonable and the rooms are clean. whenever we go to this area, we stay in a variety of places, but after our last trip, we may be coming back to... More

My wife had made reservations for 3 nights. We never received email confirmation of these 3 nights. The next day I had cancelled the reservation by phone because we decided to be closer to our destination where we were celebrating our 15th Wedding Anniversary. I spoke to a man with a man with a foreign speaking voice and told him... More

It is not often I stay in a place where the majority of furnishings are older than those in my home, but that was the case here. However, this was not a bad thing. Upon entering the room, I was reminded of the rooms my family and I would stay in some 40 years ago. Everything was clean, the bed... More

I have stayed at North Coast Inn and Chalets on more than one occasion. The accommodations are average. I made reservations for 1 night in April for a night in July and specifically informed the owner when I made the reservation that it was only for 1 night. When we checked in the office was busy and I did not... More
