The room was well appointed in every way, was very clean, beds were great and the jacuzzi was just perfect. It looked brand new and was a wonderful amenity as we were there in frigid winter... More

Beautiful, clean, modern, spacious room with high quality finishes and features. We had a jacuzzi room with a view of Lake Superior and the ferry landing. Fireplace added a great ambiance to the room. The staff was very friendly, personable, and engaging.

We were in the main hotel building. Good well maintained basic room in a great location during the off-season. We could see Lake Superior out of our room's window, and the charming downtown and docks were out the front door and just around the corner. Many businesses were shut down for the season, especially restaurants. However quite a few of... More

The room is well appointed, and very clean, and the view is fantastic. Staff is kind and courteous, especially Chelsea. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Everything in the room is new, from the beds to the furniture, to the plumbing fixtures.

We had a reservation for the Emerald Suite which is in the Isaac Wing House directly across the street from the Bayfield Inn where you would check in. Our room was very large as you would expect from a suite and had a nice... More

I booked this hotel for one night prior to my inline race on Madeline Island. I chose this hotel for its proximity to the water/ferry and the great reviews. I had arranged a late checkout over the phone as it was not likely I'd be back in time after my race due to to the race and ferry schedules. The... More

We especially enjoyed our view of the dock and lake in the morning while eating breakfast in the restaurant. We had left a... More
