"To travel alone, I learned, isn't to rely on yourself. To travel alone is to force yourself to depend on others. It is to fall in love with mankind." I borrow this quote from Author Ken Ilgunas and then add my own gratitude- Thank you Track and Karen for taking care of the caregiver both while I was solo and...

Harbor Hill House was an easy selection. It is beautiful, charming, and you can't ask for a better location. I have to thank Karen & Track McCreary for helping to make my daughter's 11th birthday week enchanting, warm, and extra fun! We stayed in the Skyview Room and it couldn't have been more lovely -- spectacular view, comfortable bed, and...

My wife & I had a very nice two night stay here this October. Sitting up on a hill, looking out on lake Superior the view from the porch is outstanding. Being a very short walk down the hill to the rest of the city makes it a very convenient location. The owners, Track & Karen are welcoming, and make...

My room was amazing - the view of the bay incredible - loved the large jaccuzzi tub and size of the room. Beautifully decorated. The front porch was so perfect. It was like a vacation without even leaving the B & B. Easy walk in to town - great shops and restaurants - Pier Plaza & Gruenke's were amazing restaurants!

At home at Harbor Hill. The hosts make you feel welcome and at home. When there, stay put for awhile on the front porch looking down into one the most interesting little harbors in America. If you do go down to the town and harbor look up because Harbor Hill and its neighbor across the street are what give Bayfield...

Hidden from plain sight in the hills of Bayfield this little advertised B&B is one you don't want to miss a chance to spend some time at. So comfortable and homey!

If you are looking for a place to relax with an amazing view of the harbor and a delicious breakfast every morning, this is the place. This felt like a home away from home. Karen and Track were excellent hosts with lots of knowledge about the history of the area. We will definitely stay here again.

But better! Harbor Hill House is a charming, welcoming B&B down the block and across the road from the Madeline Island Ferry. Within easy walking distance of downtown Bayfield, it offers the right mix of quiet, friendliness, and convenience. We had an amazing view of the harbor from our room. The room itself was spacious, had a comfy reading chair,...
