We went to Bayfield and the Old Rittenhouse upon the recommendation of some friends who have visted both a number of times. Since it was our 20th anniversary, we had our hearts set on the Moroccan Suite or the Ballroom, but both were taken so we elected their adjacent Cottage instead, wanting to stay near the Inn. To be honest, the Cottage was a disappointment as there is no view, and seemed to us to be like an old home rather than an Inn. I spoke to woman who greeted us, and she was more than eager to help us find something to our liking at their Chateau. (When they say it is six blocks away, these are six Bayfield blocks, not Chicago or New York blocks! It was much closer to the Inn than we expected. ) We were overwhelmed by the stately Chateau from the moment we stepped on the expansive porch, and within half an hour, we were out of the Cottage and in the Master Suite looking out over the city and Madeline Island in the distance. They even adjusted the room charges accordingly. We were very pleased with accomodations. The continental breakfast alone was wonderful, and dinner was heavenly.
