We stayed 3 nights in the Jacuzzi Suite #1 with a lakeside view. The room itself was nice and big with a king sized bed and Jacuzzi. We could see the park and harbor from our window. The best part was not having to drive for 3 days........all the shopping, restaurants and even the boat tours and ferry were right... More

We stayed one night in a king, city view room. The hotel must have been recently remodeled, all the carpeting, furnishings, and decor looks new and modern. The room was very comfortable, quiet and spacious. The font desk staff all were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

The outside of our condo had us wondering what was to be expected inside. Not the best looking outside. Not the most fabulous exterior. Big surprise inside! Newly redone and modern. Great space. Would definitely stay here every time. Word of warning: if you sleep on the futon, don't roll over on the backside. You'll flip the bed!

Two-night stay at the one-bedroom condo (Friday/Saturday) managed by The Bayfield Inn. High-end accommodations right in the heart of Bayfield with easy access to activities, shopping, and the marina/dock. Definitely a front row seat to any music playing on the Bayfield Inn deck lounge from the balcony. Enjoyable stay.

We stayed in Garden Guest House #3, which is the second floor of a house across the street (and a parking lot) from the lake. It is a nice unit, with a private deck with a lake view, peaked ceiling, fresh paint and updated finishes and furnishings. There was plenty of space for our family of 4 to relax, play,... More

The hotel has been recently renovated and the furnishings and bath fixtures are attractive. Room was spacious and clean and staff were friendly and helpful. In addition to the restaurant (open only certain evenings) there is an attractive deck with drink and food service overlooking the dock.

My family and I rented the Ada O'day condo for a long weekend in July and it was great! Nice view from the wrap around deck. The kitchen and living room areas are great for gathering and the bedrooms are all quite large. The Jacuzzi tub is also a nice addition and the laundry machine makes for easy living. Would... More

My wife and I just got back from driving the circle tour, going all the way around Lake Superior over two weeks. The hotel was full but we stayed two nights at the condos. The Hotel owns the condos and also has rental cabins available. Condo was very clean and well stocked with everything you need for housekeeping. We ate... More

My mom and I had a girls weekend in Bayfield and Madeline Island. We stayed in Boatworks 203 and it was perfect! The kitchen was huge, the living room was extremely cozy, and the bedrooms were super nice. Everything felt so comfortable and it felt like a second home. The location of the condo was perfect, it was right in... More

We booked at the Bayfield Inn based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Although we arrived early, our room was ready ahead of scheduled check-in time. The staff kept fresh coffee and fresh water decanters filled all day. We enjoyed taking our coffee outdoors and sitting on the benches overlooking the harbor. The central location allowed us to park our car... More
