Stayed two night in the Jacuzzi room #3...it is pricey...but it was my birthday!!! Very nice room and the staff is super fun, friendly and helpful!!! (Carol is a hoot!!!) Centrally located so easy to get around walking. First time in Bayfield and enjoyed the experience. Look forward to coming back and doing some kayaking to the islands.

The room was clean. But we spent 225.00 for a night . Now I realize that was my choice. She wanted to charge me another 25.00 because I was not renting 2 nights which she finally waved as I told her I'd go somewhere else if she continued. Nothing special. Just a room and a bed. The bed was nothing...

The staff was very friendly, the suites were lovely, the food was great! I think it is the best place to stay in Bayfield! I would recommend the Jacuzzi Suite #2! A+ My stay at the Bayfield Inn exceeded my expectations!

We have been enjoying Bayfield for 50 years or so. As our family grew and then left the nest, we have stayed at various places. The Bayfield Inn was our first destination for food and lodging many years ago. We returned this February and were very pleasantly surprised by the updates and renovations. Customer service was wonderful, both at the...

Our whitefish dinner was very good. We enjoyed our table near the window overlooking the harbor. Wait staff were attentive. The dining area was attractive right off the lobby. There are many fine restaurants in the area and you will not be disappointed.

This jewel is a great weekend get-away during the off season. The rooms are clean, the food is great and the staff are wonderful. You won't have any crowds to fight between November and April!! It was quiet and peaceful with a lovely view of Lake Superior. We will go back as often as we can.

Went to Bayfield, WI on the shores of beautiful Lake Superior September 26 for 3 nights. Stayed across the street from The Bayfield Inn at one of their properties, The Isaac Wing. Phoenix Suite. Very fine accommodation. The Inn was filled by a tour group. Carol at the front desk handled our situation well and we appreciated that. Must take...

4 nights here - definitely met my expectations. You pay more for a room with a lake view - but it is worth it. Really pretty, especially in the fall. The BED is SO AMAZING. Super comfortable. Slept so well. Bathrooms could use more lighting though, almost weirdly dark Very good internet

All in all a good Inn in Bayfield the night before we hit the ferry to Madeline Island. Given that this was late in the season, the price was a wee bit high and especially as I was not given a waterside room but one looking over the parking lot. I though the non-waterside rooms should be less expensive than...
