Great location for exploring Bayfield. We had a first floor unit with a deck that looked out across a parking lot to the lake. The little kitchen was fine for our purposes, but not as clean as I would have hoped. The burner drip trays and burner had dried food, and around the faucets had dirt that needed to be... More

This is a great bayside small hotel. Very clean, recently renovated. There is an excellent restuarant in the hotel. Less than half a block from the boat and ferry docks. Bayfield is a delightful small town on the shore of Lake Superior. It is the headquarters of the Apostle Islands Natl Lakeshore Park.

Very friendly people. We stayed in the Crow's Nest in the Isaac Wing property across from the inn. The place was clean and quaint. We made a late reservation and were grateful to be able to stay. The only downside was that there are a number of stairs (third floor) about which we were warned. It's not for the mobility-challenged.... More

Beautiful views of Lake Superior. Food was above average- Whitefish Cobb Salad was very good.The fish was amazing! Shrimp and Scallop with pasta was ok. It could have had more flavor. Service was very friendly and efficient.

We spent 3 nights in Bayfield in August. Due to availability (or lack thereof) we stayed in two different condos managed by The Bayfield Inn. This review is for the Ada O'Day #5. Overall, we were a bit disappointed with this property. Pros: It has a great view of Lake Superior from the living room and the small patio outside.... More

We stayed at Bayfield Inn for 2 nights for our 1st wedding anniversary. The view from our room of Lake Superior was wonderful. The room was clean, and we had a nice jacuzzi suite. For what the hotel offered, it truly was overpriced, but the view was marvelous. We visited different hotels & locations while on our anniversary, and this... More

What a lovely small hotel in a charming town! My husband & I stayed one night in a room that faced the parking lot & street. The room was well furnished,comfortable bed and wonderfully quiet. Packages of cookies in the room were a nice extra touch. On the water side of the hotel there is a nice park. The night... More

We stayed at the Ship's Quarters, had a great steak dinner at the Bayfield in restaurant, the staff could not have been nicer both at the front desk and in the restaurant. If you go to Bayfield you have to check out the deck at the Bayfield Inn restaurant! What a view!

We stayed here one night while going to Big Top Chautauqua. It is newly remodeled. We had a very fresh, lake view room. Nothing special... but it did have a beautiful view of Memorial Park and the lake. The location is a great benefit as you can walk everywhere. Ample free parking is available.
