We had reservations to stay at a cabin at Island View Lodging in Bayfield Wisconsin for Labor Day weekend, 2015. The Friday night before the big weekend management called us from Island View stating that they found mold in our room and would have to cancel us. No other explanation! At the last minute, we did end up finding a... More

Island View B & B was the perfect base for my New Year's XC Ski Retreat! The Fedora Suite was warm and comfortable, immaculately clean, modern furnishings, and one of the comfiest beds I've ever been in. The suite is completely private, with a separate entrance from the main house. (You can sometimes hear conversation and the TV from the... More

My husband and I stayed at Island View Inn for a weekend trip to Bayfield in November 2015. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was immaculate. The view was gorgeous. The gourmet breakfast delivered to our room each morning was delicious! An added perk was the homemade cookies and pitcher of hot apple cider waiting for us Saturday evening when... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Island View. We stayed 4 nights in the Hermit Cottage Suite and our hosts were very gracious. The Hermit was perfect for the two of us with a living room/kitchen area, bedroom, and deck facing Lake Superior. The adironack chairs on the deck and throughout the property were perfect for relaxing by the... More

My wife and I have stayed here twice, once 5 years ago and again just this last July. This place is great in every regard. Our suite was modern, spacious, well-maintained, and clean. Nice and quiet too. The windows from the kitchen and dining room looked out over the woods to lake Superior. The deck was just off the kitchen... More

This is the first time I have ever given a 5 star rating. I am very picky and have high standards. I have never stayed at a bb and have to say I was a little worried about staying at a bb- would the food be worth it, is the view really as nice as it is in the picture,... More

The Island View is now known as a B & B and Cottages and is nestled in the woods, yet only 4-5 minutes from Bayfield. Also very near fruit orchards. Outstanding, creative breakfasts. Felt welcome as soon as we arrived. Nicely appointed, spacious cottage and beautiful view of the lake. We won't stay anywhere else when we return to the... More

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!
