Wonderful welcome upon arrival, and found the room very comfy and the bed the most sumptuous ... we ordered a beer from the Tap and took it up to the wrap-around balcony to enjoy the village wandering by. The breakfast buffet was really delicious. Perfect !!!

The Little Inn has everything going for it; our room was wonderful-a large, airy comfortable space with loads of amenities. The dinner and breakfast were very good and the staff couldn't be friendlier. The location is terrific;you can stroll the charming main street or walk to the beach. And Bayfield is a short drive from Stratford if you want to... More

We booked for two nights and loved it so much we have booked to come back at the end of the month. A charming historic inn in a delightful location. If you love food then this is a must for you; the Chef's creations are a gourmet treat. If you enjoy high end country chic, but not too touristy then... More

We stayed at the Little Inn last year so knew what to expect. It's an historic hotel in a beautiful location with excellent food in the restaurant and bar. There were a couple of minor irritants to this stay. We stayed in room 5. Room 5 does not have a closet, There are two hooks on the wall for hanging... More

Thank you for your recent review, and yes while Room 5 does not have a closet it did and as owners based on overwhelming guest feedback we decided to expand what were very small bathrooms into something more consistent with guest expectations. Most of our guests only are with us for a few days and expect with a historic property... More

The main building and dining rooms are very tastefully done. The dinner was very good and the breakfast was exceptional. We stayed in one of the junior rooms in the cottage across the road from the main building. It is a lovely renovation. Our room was nicely appointed, towels and bedding new and fresh. My one complaint would be the... More

The room was lovely, clean and quiet. The receptionist was very helpful. We loved staying there. The only disappointment was breakfast, which was full, hearty, offered lots of choice, and was graciously served, but was tasteless and boring. We skipped it the second day.

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing experience, this is the spot. No pools, no saunas, no hustle. Just relaxed dining, great service and small town charm. Lots of great shopping, great pubs and Lake Huron sun sets. Who could ask for more.
