We booked the Fedora Suite for Memorial Day weekend. The view was gorgeous with a private view of Madeline Island. There were multiple fire pits and a path to a small beach, which was really nice. Valerie is super nice and is very knowledgeable with recommendations for things to do while visiting. She recently took ownership of the place and... More

I stayed here Memorial Day weekend and was blown away by how much Valerie went above and beyond to make our stay a great one. Everything from the room, to view, to breakfast was put together amazingly to make the trip a special one. We will definitely be back!

Reading the some of the previous reviews, i am shocked. On the contrary, my experience at this beautiful lodge was a good one. We had a comfortable room, that was quite homey. It definetly did not feel like a generic hotel room. Wonderful views of the lake, and the islands near by. I loved that it was tucked away in... More

They sure are letting this place go. It's sad that such a nice property is falling apart like it is. Also it's nothing some yard work, trimming, paint, stain, cleaning products and laundry detergent wouldn't fix. They simply don't appreciate the property or the people that come to spend their one week off per year. Don't boast about being more... More

We booked a room at Island View in Bayfield WI for four nights. One of the things Island View boasts about is the "full breakfast delivered to your suite in a covered basket at 8:30 AM". On another page of their website they state a "Gourmet breakfast utilizing local foods", which implies the breakfast is skillfully prepared using high-quality or... More

We just returned from a stay at one of the detached cottages........the Madeline. Clean and well furnished. Breakfast was great, but could be delivered earlier. On our arrival no one was there to greet us.......we called the "emergency" number and were told that the keys were hanging on the board to let ourselves in. They offer chairs to sit and... More

The location and views are absolutely perfect. The rooms are large, with a separate bedroom. The kitchenette is well stocked. It included a coffee maker but no coffee! Fortunetly there is a grocery store in town. There is a fire pit with wood furnished. The place has 3 cabins and 2 up/down units attached to the owner's house. We stayed... More

Nestled on the shores of Lake Superior, this B&B has two rooms in the main house, and three cabin suites nearby. We stayed in the Basswood, which had full kitchen and living room, along with a bedroom and a private bath. The rooms were clean and nicely appointed. Breakfast was delivered each morning directly to our cabin. They have direct... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Basswood cabin. It is Very beautifully refinished, windows facing the lake are big, and wonderful any time of day, to sit and watch sail boats go by. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to make some simple meals, and there was a coffee pot (very important for us) Lovely bathroom and shower.... More
