The pictures on the internet made this place look great. Out of the many places to stay in Bayfield this was one of the few that offered 3 beds. We stayed in the wild Rose room. It had a King size bed, one side was great! The right side of the bed looked like it had sunken to the floor over time. It was like sleeping in a ditch. The other two beds were fine. The worst part was the filthiness of the room, The carpet should have long ago been replaced with vinyl or laminate. The makeshift toilet area was obviously a closet or a portion of a hallway at some point in history. We had to ask for toilet paper as they only left one roll for a 3 day stay with 2 aults and 2 teenagers. We had to ask for towels daily. Did they think we were going to reuse them. There is no place to hang your towels to reuse them. The shower was a real site. My husband is 6'2" and lucky for us no one was round in the middle or else we wouldn't have fit in this small shower. It was a stretch just to get your feet washed. We were definitely not impressed with our stay. At check out I was asked my the opwner if there was "anything else". Not how was your stay? At check in no one offered up any information about the area. It was very impersonal. We did find a "honey spot" if we were to come back to the Bayfield area we would camp at Little Sand Bay. $10 a night, full showers. And the view and the beach are incredible. Looking out over the blue waters of Lake Superior and you get lost. The beach was so spacious and the water so blue I could have been in the Carribean it was that beautiful.
