We loved Bayfield, a quaint, charming little town in upper Wisconsin. The Bayfield Inn is located right above marina and the tour boats for the Apostle Islands and next to the dock for the ferry to Madeline Island. Our room was on the first floor overlooking a little park above the marina and an excellent view of the lake. Out...

Great location, very accommodating staff. We got there way before check-in time. While our room wasn't ready, they took my cell phone number and called as soon as it was ready. We got in early afternoon just in time to get ready for a kayak excursion. Room was updated, clean and pleasant. The rooftop bar looked right out to the...

The Inn is located right on the lake. Lakeside rooms have a great view. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Right in the center of Bayfield, so shopping and dining are easy. The town is easy to get around in, lots of nice shops.

Great location for exploring Bayfield. We had a first floor unit with a deck that looked out across a parking lot to the lake. The little kitchen was fine for our purposes, but not as clean as I would have hoped. The burner drip trays and burner had dried food, and around the faucets had dirt that needed to be...

This is a great bayside small hotel. Very clean, recently renovated. There is an excellent restuarant in the hotel. Less than half a block from the boat and ferry docks. Bayfield is a delightful small town on the shore of Lake Superior. It is the headquarters of the Apostle Islands Natl Lakeshore Park.

Very friendly people. We stayed in the Crow's Nest in the Isaac Wing property across from the inn. The place was clean and quaint. We made a late reservation and were grateful to be able to stay. The only downside was that there are a number of stairs (third floor) about which we were warned. It's not for the mobility-challenged....

We spent 3 nights in Bayfield in August. Due to availability (or lack thereof) we stayed in two different condos managed by The Bayfield Inn. This review is for the Ada O'Day #5. Overall, we were a bit disappointed with this property. Pros: It has a great view of Lake Superior from the living room and the small patio outside....

We stayed at Bayfield Inn for 2 nights for our 1st wedding anniversary. The view from our room of Lake Superior was wonderful. The room was clean, and we had a nice jacuzzi suite. For what the hotel offered, it truly was overpriced, but the view was marvelous. We visited different hotels & locations while on our anniversary, and this...

What a lovely small hotel in a charming town! My husband & I stayed one night in a room that faced the parking lot & street. The room was well furnished,comfortable bed and wonderfully quiet. Packages of cookies in the room were a nice extra touch. On the water side of the hotel there is a nice park. The night...
