We decided to take a last minute spur of the moment trip up to Bayfield, I knew we were taking a gamble due to the high season demand. We came into town and stopped at The Bayfield Inn to see if they had anything available. The front desk staff was very helpful and they only had one room left. It... More

Group of four stayed here. Room was large, clean, private patio, lake view....just awesome. We stayed across the street from the main Inn, and it was great. We had a mini fridge and microwave, sitting area, table on the patio with an awesome breeze and view. Perfect spot in town - walking to anything you could want. Staff was friendly... More

My wife and I decided to go to Bayfield to celebrate our anniversary. We choose Bayfield Inn due to positive reviews. From the outside it didn't look like it was "all that" once you enter the building, everything is updated, modernized new. We had the Jacuzzi room #3, Lake lakeview window. This place is a good fit for couples celebration.."get... More

While doing research for the best value for the price, I called the Bayfield Chamber of Commerce and received their 2015 Visitors' Guide. After calling a bed and breakfast, I called one other motel and did not get an answer or immediate response. So I called The Bayfield Inn and spoke with no less than three staff members. After making... More

My friend and I came across the delightful Bayfield Inn. A most relaxing inn in a very quaint lakeshore setting. From the man who checked us in to Carol who checked us out, all were outstanding. Veronica, the housekeeper, was simply amazing as she worked around us as we talked with Emily Hart, another most amazing individual. Veronica made sure... More

A perfect place to stay in Bayfield - close to everything, friendly staff, and a wonderful restaurant (with a great view). We stayed in a very-freshly-renovated 3 bedroom condo unit, which was the perfect place and setting to spend a weekend with friends; very comfortable and just like home. I will be staying here should I return!

We found our room to be clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. Bayfield is a nice town, the inn is nice and it equals a very pleasant weekend. I wouldn't spend more than three days in Bayfield because there isn't a ton to do but it makes for a great romantic three day weekend.

My sister and I stayed at The Bayfield Inn 4/22/15-4/26/15. The hotel and the room were very clean and nicely decorated. The room, though comfortable, was nothing special but had an AMAZING view of the lake! I cannot say enough about the staff at The Bayfield Inn. There was a problem with some new tv remotes where our tv went... More

Popping into Bayfield for an overnight had us checking on the Bayfield Inn for a room. Tyler, the General Manager, was very accommodating. He gave us the needed information on what businesses were open. We had a perfectly peaceful nights rest, waking up to a delightful view of Lake Superior. Thank You. We will be back!
