“Washington Ave Condo perfect for four”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We stayed in Condo #204 in these units managed by Bayfield Inn. We were two couples and the place was very roomy. It could handle a couple of more people using the futon in the loft area adjacent to the upstairs bedroom. The downstairs master bedroom is a king and nicely decorated. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and is open to the loft area overlooking the living area. They provide a screen to partially close off the area which was quite adequate for our purposes. The kitchen area was well appointed and plenty large and the living/dining area was quite large and easily accommodated six people for a couple of game nights. There is a nice little balcony area which you can see the lake, although just a partial view.
These condos sit atop a little commercial mall, including a liquor store/deli which was very handy. It is right downtown and therefore close to just about everything Bayfield has to offer. It was very quiet and check-in was easy by stopping it at The Bayfield Inn (a couple of blocks away) to pick up the key.
All in all I would recommend these condos if you are looking for a spacious, comfortable base for you Bayfield adventure.

We stayed across the street from the Inn in the dog friendly QEII suite in the Isaac Wing house. Excellent location, friendly and helpful owners, comfortable rooms. Would stay here again and again. Great seating areas outdoors, convenient to everything!

Called for a reservation and were told they had a great off site location. She explained it was not a B&B but was a house with common areas we could use, a private bedroom and bath and wonderful views of the lake. When we checked in she pointed to a beautiful home up on a hill just one block from the hotel. It was a great location and the views from the living room were beautiful. The room however left a lot to be desired. It was in the basement and our views were from windows about 5 foot off the floor of the overgrown landscape bushes. The room smelled musty and felt damp. We ran the bathroom fan all night and the room air conditioner. We recommend you ask which room in the house you will be getting before making your reservation.

Went to Bayfield for the weekend. This is an excellent hotel. Close to the pier, great viewed, newly renovated rooms and the roof top patio entertainment added a nice touch! Quite expensive, but worth it!

This is my third stay at the Bayfield Inn. As always, we had a lovely stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Be sure to spend some time upstairs on the outdoor roof patio - great food, drinks, and the best lake view in town.

Only disappointment was that they have stopped the complimentary breakfast. That was a nice bonus.

Room Tip: You will pay a little more for the lakeside rooms, but the view is nice if you plan on spending time...

We were married August 3 2013 at the Bayfield Inn. We booked the hotel the prior summer, after seeing what a perfect venue it would be for a wedding of about 120 people. The staff at the Inn took care of every request we wanted, and the entire experience was fabulous. The food was amazing, and very thoughtfully presented. The hotel rooms were wonderful. The hotel staff took care of reservations at places throughout Bayfield for our guests. we cannot think of a single thing that we would have done differently. Thank you, Bayfield Inn, for the most wonderful weekend imaginable!

We stayed in room 205, with a nice view of the lake. The rooms and the bathroom are very nice. The beds are not of the caliber of a 4 star hotel though. The staff is friendly and helpful. We loved the rooftop bar and tables overlooking the lake, plus the live music. Very romantic!

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view
