This is tucked below a road and has excellent views of the Lake. Be sure and ask for a lakeview room. On their website: http://www.seagullbay.com/ you can find out which two rooms aren't lakeside. If you can't live without air conditioning don't stay here. We stayed in room 6 and were very happy. They have a microwave and fridge as well! Right below is a walking trail that extends into town. Due to heavy rains prior to our stay and construction on the trail it was unusable at the time. I look forward to this wonderful feature the next time. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a close walk to the activities of town, but far enough removed that it's a very peaceful location. It was super quiet when we were here which was wonderful. They had chairs and picnic tables out on the lawn facing the lake. It's a basic room so if you're a bells and whistles person you won't enjoy it. If you're looking for your basic needs/accomodations this is perfect. The view and quietness of this place as well as the friendly staff lend to a wonderful motel experience. The cost is very reasonable too.
This location also provides shuttle transportation to and from the Big Top. We had wanted to do this with our visit to the Big Top the night before, but they were already booked as this was a last minute trip. Instead we stayed on the island the first night and moved over to Bayfield for the remainder of the trip.
If you want to stop at a great place with comparable pricing to many restaurants for breakfast or lunch I'd highly recommend the The Rittenhouse. We've been there once for lunch and this latest time for breakfast. Beautiful place, excellent food, reasonable prices (dinner may be diff. for prices, we haven't been for that meal). http://www.rittenhouseinn.com/
