“Best place to stay in Bayfield.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Their garden suite is the best room, and we loved staying in it. The decor is a little over-the-top, yet, very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed our relaxed stay in sleepy Bayfield.

Room Tip: Their garden suite is most luxurious.

My husband and I were married at the Red Pump Sept.17th 2011, and I cannot say enough about our experience there. The decorations outside were MORE then I ever expected, it was absolutely beautiful, rose peddles and white bows along the path that i walked, rose peddles in the tiered fountain, large fluffy white balls in the trees, it was like a fairy tale wedding. We had a sit down dinner at noon for 25 guest and again excellent in all ways, the chef made a meal that all my guest were extremely happy with including ourselves, the cake was exactly the way I asked him to make it, the tables were just absolutely breath-taking with roses and rose peddles on the white tablecloths, but you had to see it to believe it. It was a perfect day and the staff members especially Nora, Jan and the chef made our dream day perfect. I would recommend your special day whether it is a wedding, anniversary or whatever these people you can trust to make it memorable.

My wife and I love the quaint Village of Bayfield, Ontario, Canada. It is located on the eastern shore of Lake Huron approximately 53 miles north of London. We have stayed at The Red Pump Inn many times over the years but most recently August 5-8, 2011. We usually plan to stay for 3-4 days when we go to Bayfield. The Inn is a romantic country style inn for couples to escape their daily lives and enjoy great food, wine and a charming village. The Inn has seven suites, the original three suites, The Back Suite, The Front Suite and The Living Room Suite, are located above the Inn's boutique store, the other four newer suites are located in a building just across a beautiful gated courtyard and are contemporary in decor. We are partial to the original suites for sentimental reasons so we reserved The Front Suite for this visit. This suite has a balcony which overlooks Bayfield's Main Street and is furnished with a pair of artistically painted adirondack chairs. It is fun to sit on the balcony and watch the passing scene on the street during busy summer afternoons. The suite, as are all of the original suites, is luxuriously designed with a blend of high end new and antique furnishings and art work. The bathroom is dramatic and elegant, new but designed to look vintage, from the heated black and white tile floor to the french inspired soaking tub with silver claw feet. The remainder of the suite consists of two rooms, one with a mahogany sleigh bed dresssed with luxurious linens and the other room is a living room beautifully furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques and new furniture. If you stay in the suites above the Inn, continental style breakfast is delivered to your suite each morning at a time that you select the day before. All of the suites are exceptionally well maintained, extremely comfortable and very private. The Inn is pet friendly and we have taken our miniature poodle with us several times. We recommend The Garden Suite if you take your dog because the suite is at ground level and it is easy to take the dog out for a walk.
Dining at The Red Pump Inn restaurant is always a culinary delight. On every visit we always have lunch and dinner at the Inn because we consider their food to be superb. Chef Mike is very passionate about the food he creates, the presentation and the service. He came to our table at every meal to ensure that everything was prepared to our liking. The cuisine is very creative and many of the ingredients are obtained from local sources. One night for dinner he featured elk and it was delicious and the first time we had ever eaten it. The wine list is quite nice and will satisfy the most discerning palates. The dining room ambiance glows with candle light each evening and is beautifully appointed with 18th century oil paintings, white linens, silver and glass. The dress code is casual so even though this sounds formal it is very comfortable and not pretentious. In the summertime dining on the patio behind the Inn overlooking the flower gardens and listening to water tinkling in the antique fountain is very romantic. The service was friendly and impeccable. We highly recommend a stay at The Red Pump Inn and, if you ask the staff of the Inn, most requests and preferences can be accomodated.

Room Tip: All of the suites are luxurious. If you prefer european luxury stay in the original suites. The Ba...

We recently stayed at The Red Pump Inn, not just for food at the adjoining restaurant. The inn has seven suites and our own suite was nicely designed, clean and pet friendly.

The trouble lies with the owner and staff who are cold and lack any personal touch. It is as if $325 a night is an entitlement to pay at a country inn and we are lucky to be there. Frankly, the price is not the issue, but the level of personal treatment overshadows any physical comfort they have tried to create.

When I wrote about my disapointment to the owner, the response was equally as cold and quite accusatory towards me..... the difficult client. (I was far from that)

It is unfortunate that the amount of money they have invested in the inn is negated by the lack of customer service. Stay elsewhere in this very quaint town.
