We booked a mid week 2 -night break. Enjoyed our stay and liked the quiet room with seating area. Could use a few more hooks and a hanger or two in our room. Breakfast was very pleasant and the food options were a nice surprise. Service was professional and friendly. Our dinner was good and the service friendly. Will return... More

A really lovely time in the town and at the Inn . A most Beautiful room. Great breakfast and friendly staff Our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the garden. Breakfast was a full meal not continental and included. The rooster at dawn next door was annoying. We will definitely come again

We stayed at the Guest Cottage for the first time and it was lovely and quiet, although the furnishings and decor are a bit outdated. In the Guest Cottage you have access to a shared kitchenette which met our requirements for a fridge quite nicely. Dinner at the Willow Room was delicious - the Lake Huron pickerel was a particular... More

Thank you for your recent review, and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The Cottage property has received a number of upgrades including beds, linens, towels and TVs but has not received the same full renovation that most of the rooms at the Main Inn have. We intent to start the process of renewal of the cottage in 2017.... More

Over the weekend, my husband and I enjoyed two wonderful lunches at the Four in Hand Taproom. My husband liked heavier things, such as the build-your-own burger, creamy mushroom soup (best mushroom soup I have ever tasted) and an Asian noodle salad. My peach salad was amazing. It paired really well with a riesling from Red Stone Winery. The second... More

Thank you for your terrific comments on all the items you tasted while at the Four in Hand Taproom. I'm a huge fan of mushroom soup and I agree it is one of the best.

After spending a week or so determining what sort of accommodations we would like this time in Bayfield, we decided on the beautiful and inviting Little Inn of Bayfield. From check-in until check-out, we were 150% satisfied. Upon check-in, you enter this sweet, handsomely decorated entrance room and get a little glimpse of the rest of the Inn (every room... More

Thank you for you review and glad you have continued to stay with us after your wedding. We are a family run and independently owned hospitality property, and during our renovations in 2015 we had to focus our time and frankly capital in certain areas. Rooms like the widows walk and room 15 were not the first priority. As we... More

My husband and I attended a wedding over a September weekend and the bride recommended this hotel. Not only was this Inn beautiful but the town was equally as gorgeous. The Town of Bayfield is nestled on the shores of Lake Huron and the Inn is just a 5 minute walk to the water. Surprisingly, the water almost looks tropical!... More

Everything was perfect. The bed was comfortable, the room quiet, the food excellent, and the ambience of the town of Bayfield perfect for a fall getaway. For U.S. travelers, the favorable exchange rate made this hotel very affordable.

Our four days at the Little Inn cottage - where we could stay with our dog - were full of bountiful, tasty breakfasts on the porch, dessert and tea at the end of each day, clean and comfortable quarters and friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you, despite being short-staffed and run off their feet most days.
