My mother (age 82) and I stayed at The Bayfield Inn for a brief getaway to Bayfield, Wisconsin. I'm convinced we made the best choice. When Mother made the reservation she requested a first floor room with two beds. Our request was honored without any problem. Check-in was a breeze, and we were soon in our room. The room had...

We stayed for three nights in the Turnquist Suite, right in the heart of the downtown shopping area in Bayfield (2 blocks from the Inn). We enjoyed every minute of the stay and would return again anytime. We traveled with our two year old and the king bed was plenty roomy for everyone and it was nice being so close... More

My husband arrived for a recent stay as part of a conference taking place in Bayfield. We got to the hotel very early- 11:00 a.m. or so and inquired if we could leave our bags at the desk while we explored the area. The staff had the room we were going to stay in cleaned while we ate lunch in... More

Had a wonderful experience again at Bayfield Inn. This time stayed in one of the Condos (Ada O'Day unit 1). There were 4 of us and it was wonderful to have so much room to spread out! My friends and I went to Bayfield this time to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy at Big Top Chautaugua and had a great... More

My husband and I recently stayed at The Bayfield Inn for our Anniversary. While we have stayed in Bayfield many times, this was our first visit to The Bayfield Inn and it was by far the best experience that we've had. Is was wonderful to be right on the water and have a lakeside room overlooking beautiful Lake Superior. The... More

The Bayfield Inn is a very good hotel, I just wish for the price that it was a great hotel. The positives are, first and foremost, the location---can't be beat in Bayfield! In the heart of town, easy walking distance to everything, right on the lake with the small town park liberally dotted with benches for watching the sailboats go... More

I can't offer up enough positive comments about our stay at the Bayfield Inn. The staff was welcoming and helpful and positive throughout our stay...we did not encounter a single staff member that wasn't anything other than wonderful....this would include Whitney in the hotel restaurant who waited on us for lunch on a couple of occasions. I have to single... More

Bayfield is the access to the Apostle Island National lake shore and the Bayfield Inn, right on the shore. The Inn was clean and the staff warm and friendly. You could not put the tabs at the attached bar, restaurant or roof deck on your room. Our room faced the parking lot, so not a great view, but a good... More

I stayed in the Brookside condos managed by the Bayfield Inn. My condo was next to the marina a few minutes out of the actual town. Price was reasonable and the room was clean and well maintained. The restaurant at the marina was surprisingly good.

We stayed at the Bayfield inn hotel this June. We rented a Garden Guesthouse across from the main building. The house had a king bed with couchbed. It was a beautiful mini apartment. They even had a full kitchen with microwave, small fridge, coffee pot, toaster, and cooktop. That was very nice because u did not have to eat out.... More
