We love Bayfield because there are no chain motels or restaurants. Harbors Edge is located close to so many things. Very fun to watch the ferry unloading, etc. The room was clean and very quiet. The sink (in our room) was in the bedroom- which worked for us. The mattress maybe wasn't the best, but still a great stay.

We stayed in July 2016 in the main building (#2). The room was spacious and had a bed and breakfast feel. The motel is directly across the street from the ferry and provides a nice view of the lake and islands. The room was clean and a few amenities were provided (shampoo, conditioner, soap); although the hair dryer didn't work... More

We stayed in Room 1. It had a queen bed that was so horrible. Anytime my companion so much as breathed, my side shook. The sheets while clean had a musty smell. The shower stall was so small that it made shaving my legs a challenge. The shower head was so low that I had to bend down to wash... More

We stayed for 2 nights - Wednesday - Friday which was great - very quiet and not too crowded in town. The motel staff are friendly and courteous. Room was nicely decorated and quite homey feeling, although bathroom could use some updating. We had a 2nd floor room with a view of the harbor, and the motel itself was within... More

The title of my review pretty well sums it up. The room was small, but very clean and not at all shabby. The sink was in the room in a little niche. My husband said shaving was awkward because of the space confines in the sink area. I would've appreciated a towel hook or rod adjacent to the mirror rather... More

We loved the location right across the road from the lake and the boat dock for the ferry. We had a nice view from our second floor room. It's right in town so you can walk to the shops and restaurants easily. Our room was small, but painted nicely and very clean and the bed was comfortable. The wifi service... More

Staff was very helpful. Called as we were entering town and asked about arrival time. We were there early afternoon and they got us into our room as soon as we arrived. Not the newest but clean and comfortable. Great location, suited us perfect. We could walk to the Ferry, Island boat tour and around the town. Very happy with... More

We booked this room on a last minute cancellation for the Applefest that happens every year in town. The woman that hubby talked to on the phone was extremely friendly and helpful. When we arrived she gavves us apples and talked through several pamphlets showing local attractions and restaurants. This motel is right in the heart of the town and... More
