We stayed in the Turnquist suite, which was a real nice place. So convenient to everything and very clean and comfortable. We arrived just after 3:00 to check in but they told us our suite wasn't ready so they gave us free drink coupons to use in the bar. After an hour, we checked again and our room wasn't ready...

My husband and I stayed in the Pilot House. We had access to two balconies, both with a nice view. The room was a little crowded but the bathroom was large. I would go back and I would also recommend it to others. The employees were all very pleasant also.

My wife & son & I stayed at the Bayfield Inn for two days in August 2015. The room we had at the Inn was ideal for the 3 of us. It was comfortable and had all the amenities we wanted. The kitchen was modern and we were glad to have it to fix some of our meals. The view... More

In late July, my wife and I decided to book an August, 3-day getaway to Bayfield (Our first visit). Given our late start, accommodations were almost non-existent city wide, but on the Bayfield Inn web site, room 204 (city-side) was available for 3 nights. Man, did that turn out to be the serendipitous option! First, this Inn is in a... More

We stayed in the Isaac Wing House (Emerald room), it is a house across from the Bayfield Inn. Wow, is all I can say, wonderful view of Lake Superior, a beautiful flower garden surrounds the house and great staff members. The inn is centrally located in the heart of the town, giving you easy walking access to the lake, restraurants... More

Very nice place to visit and stay. Lots to do and a great place to relax. When visiting do the evening boat cruise. Quaint restaurants to choose from. Only a couple hours from Duluth MN. You will loke the islands

In a rating system with 5 being the best, my wife and I must give The Bayfield Inn a 6 or 7. We didn't arrive at the hotel until 1:30 am and we're quickly and courteously checked in and directed to our room. Within an hour we were both comfortably tucked in and sound asleep. In the morning we opened... More

From the cordial and professional front desk to the hustling deck bartender our one night stay couldn't have been more enjoyable. The room was well appointed and the bed comfortable. Thank you to all involved(housekeepers, maintenance and management too) in making our stay enjoyable.

After arriving in our room the cable TV in the living area had no signal, yet the tv in the bedroom worked fine. After expressing concern and great dissatisfaction to an employee working reception, Jarrett, he personally came over to take a look. Sadly he was unable to fix the problem, but assured me he would get someone in the... More
