Just returned from our yearly vacation in Bayfield and first time staying at Harbor's Edge Motel.What a gem in a great location, I almost don't want to write this review and give away our secret! Very friendly and quick check-in. We were in a room with our private balcony overlooking Lake Superior, the other rooms that have balconies share them... More

I have stayed at the Harbor's Edge three times now, and have enjoyed each visit. Park the car and walk all over Bayfield to shops and resturants and a short walk to the pier. Great view of the harbor and the coming and going of the ferries from the rooms that have decks. Great, helpful and friendly staff. Thanks this... More

Very clean, a bit dated decor but we weren't in the room much. We chose the cheapest room knowing we wouldn't be there long. Other rooms overlooked the water, but boats are in the way of the view anyway. Chairs outside at night for relaxing. Easy walking distance to everything. Across the street from the ferry and cruise boats.

Stayed at Harbor's Edge Motel on June 28 and 29 and really enjoyed the experience. The location right by the harbor and downtown Bayfield can't be beat. Our room (#2) was cozy, comfortable and clean. The price was reasonable compared to others I looked at. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.

This was our first time in Bayfield and I am so glad we stayed at this hotel. It was right across the street from the Madeline Island ferry and the beach. It was walking distance to all the restaurants and attractions in the village. We thought it was very quiet and sat outside in the chairs in their little garden... More

We vacation locally and decided to make a stop up to Bayfield and spend the night. The Harbor's Edge had a sign out front that said vacancy so we went to check it out. The office was very helpful and even insisted we go take a peak at the room before we committed to staying the night. The room was... More

Stayed here 2 nights while visiting Bayfield. Lovely, small hotel. Room was exceptionally clean and cozy. Location unbeatable! Only 100 yards from Madeline Island Ferry. One poster "complained" about rooms overlooking parking lot - obviously, they didn't look past their nose - look straight ahead....lovely view of the harbor and lots of puffy clouds. Lana, receptionist full of conversation and... More

I stayed here for 3 nights over the Memorial Weekend and I'm very disappointed! The room should not have been rented out as the shower didn't even turn on. My first full day when I tried to brush my teeth, the town had turned off the water without notifying the motel so I waited a bit and then was able... More

We got our room for apple fest as a previous booking had cancelled. We lucked out! It was a mini-suite, with kitchenette private bedroom and sitting area. Not much of a view from the room but it was extremely clean and quite and right next to the harbor area so sitting out in the yard was very nice. Easy access... More
