Let me just start this review by saying that the owner and host, Carol, is delightful! She made sure our every need was taken care of and was always quick to come up with a recommendation. Even though Baileys Harbor is one of the more quiet towns up there, I left feeling we hadn't even scratched the surface! There are plenty of walkable shops and eateries from the Inn, as well as a Sunday farmers market downtown.
We did a lot of biking and running from the front door, it was very convenient to get onto country roads from the inn. We didn't get a chance to try out the kayak that Carol has for guests, but we did grill out two of our nights (nice Weber grill) as well as light up the fire pit that is in back. What a great set up for us - a couple just trying to get away from it all. Hearing the fire crackle as the waves of Lake Michigan crash onto the shore was something I won't soon forget.
Then we were able to retreat up to the 2nd floor suite (which is actually three separate rooms and a bathroom, all tastefully decorated in a nautical theme) and sleep in the next morning in the huge bed! Being able to have breakfast at home was also convenient. The kitchen is efficiently sized but updated and basically has anything you'd need on a week-long trip.
We were there for 4 nights, and can't wait to return again. Thanks for everything, Carol!
