Our request was filled at the last minute. We got the last room they had. We were surprised to find the king room was very clean, beautifully decorated and large. We had a bench and recliner in our room. It accommodated a rollaway for our granddaughter. Every night we enjoyed a delicious meal. Breakfast was reasonably priced and freshly made.... More

For our spontaneous couples getaway to Bayfield, we called on a Friday afternoon during happy hour to make a one-night stay that Sunday. Room options were a bit limited due to the short notice, but they could accommodate us with one of several options. We choose the Garden Guest House, Room 4 - separate little building diagonally across the street... More

We had a wonderful visit to the Bayfield area and enjoyed our stay at the Bayfield Inn. We had one of their whirlpool suites. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. We did not have the chance to try their dining. The Inn is about as centrally located as possible - a great location. We would certainly come back... More

We recently stayed at the Bayfield Inn and found it to be the perfect location in many ways. The Inn has a full-service restaurant that prepares very delicious breakfasts. We had the omelets, blue-berry pancakes and French toast. The portions were large and the flavors were very tasty. The restaurant overlooks beautiful Lake Superior. The Inn is within walking distance... More

Awesome hotel and restaurant. Awesome service. I was pleasantly greeted by the front desk staff. We were lucky enough to score the last available room. The room was very nice and had recently been updated. The location of the hotel is within walking distance of many restaurants & bars. However, we ended up eating at the restaurant on site at...

On our initial call we were disappointed to find out that due to a large funeral in town we could only book one night the weekend before Memorial Day. We decided to go with the one night and headed out. After almost five hours of driving we were at the front desk and met Carol we asked if there might... More

Perfect for a weekend gateway. Very nice clean and decent size rooms. We had a full kitchen and also a porch and two bedrooms. There is a fireplace and the condo is very cozy. Walking distance to major eateries and centrally located. Cant wait to go back here.

We always stay at The Isaac Wing House and enjoy some meals and beverage at the Bayfield Inn. This has always been an enjoyable trip. This time of year we have always enjoyed first class treatment. We travel from Oklahoma and will return !

We stayed in one of the condos on the lake. It was a beautiful location and worked well for us. The kitchen was fully equipped, the television reception excellent, the view superb, and the bed comfortable. We went out daily and did things in the area shooting pictures of frozen waterfalls, etc. Unfortunately it hasn't been cold enough this year... More
