It was a wonderful experience. We were greeted by Paul, Penny and the cats! We had a wonderful one bedroom suite overlooking the lake. It was heaven. It was very hot the day we arrived, but they had turned on the air, so when we went into the suite it was very comfortable. There was a delicious breakfast brought to... More

The Fedora suite had it all! Nice space, great views and friendly hosts. The homemade breakfast delivered to our door each morning was a nice touch. I would recommend this Inn for anyone looking for a quiet stay in a comfortable and peaceful setting.

Island View is close to town, but once you are there you feel like you are miles away. It is very quiet and peaceful - a great place to relax after touring the Apostle Islands. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the sailboats. The beds were comfortable, the kitchenette had everything we needed and the breakfasts were a... More

Once you arrive at this suite, you won't want to leave the front porch. Great view of Lake superior & Madeline Island. Wonderful home-cooked breakfasts! Spent our 47th anniversary here for 3 nights and loved every minute! Also visited Madeline Island and Bay View State Park, took the Apostle Islands Grand Tour, and took the fruit farms & orchards country... More

The suite was very nice. Comfortable, great view, very quiet. We were up to Bayfield for a sailing vacation. Unfortunately, it rained 2 of our 5 days and we had minimal wind for another day! But, the rainy days spent in the room were comfy and relaxing. The breakfast was OK, nice and healthy, served individually to our room. Tea... More

This was our second time staying here. The cabins are well stocked & clean. The hosts were very accommodating and pleasant to work with. We plan on making this our annual long summer weekend spot. We highly recommend it!

We really enjoyed our stay at Island View Lodging B &B. We found it exceptionally clean and very comfortable. Being a couple miles outside of Bayfield and located in the woods on Lake Superior made for a very peaceful and quiet time. The view is awesome, the breakfasts served right to the room were very good and different each morning,... More

My husband and I vacationed at Lake Superior and stayed at Island View Lodging - what a fabulous stay for us. We were in the main house on the second floor in the Sevona Suite - the picture accompanying this review is the beautiful view of Lake Superior from our balcony deck. The breakfasts that were served each morning were... More

We stayed three nights at Island View Lodging. Our room had a beautiful view of Lake Superior. We were in the Fedora Suite. The breakfasts were absolutely amazing! They were delivered to our room every morning around 8:30. I can’t rave enough about them. The room was nice but not outstanding. They really needed another chair in the living room.... More

We stayed in the hermit cottage. The location if the cabins are very close to town, in the woods and in Lake Superior. The spot is the best for the price. The owners were very kind and accommodating. The cabin was not 5 star and was expected for the amount we paid. It is like a 'camping' cabin and was... More
