We stayed in the Isaac Wing House (Emerald room), it is a house across from the Bayfield Inn. Wow, is all I can say, wonderful view of Lake Superior, a beautiful flower garden surrounds the house and great staff members. The inn is centrally located in the heart of the town, giving you easy walking access to the lake, restraurants...

Very nice place to visit and stay. Lots to do and a great place to relax. When visiting do the evening boat cruise. Quaint restaurants to choose from. Only a couple hours from Duluth MN. You will loke the islands

In a rating system with 5 being the best, my wife and I must give The Bayfield Inn a 6 or 7. We didn't arrive at the hotel until 1:30 am and we're quickly and courteously checked in and directed to our room. Within an hour we were both comfortably tucked in and sound asleep. In the morning we opened...

From the cordial and professional front desk to the hustling deck bartender our one night stay couldn't have been more enjoyable. The room was well appointed and the bed comfortable. Thank you to all involved(housekeepers, maintenance and management too) in making our stay enjoyable.

After arriving in our room the cable TV in the living area had no signal, yet the tv in the bedroom worked fine. After expressing concern and great dissatisfaction to an employee working reception, Jarrett, he personally came over to take a look. Sadly he was unable to fix the problem, but assured me he would get someone in the...

Stayed only one night, but could stay a week! The view from the room was beautiful as it overlooked many gorgeous flowers and Lake Superior. The rooms were adequate and decorated like I would imagine someone's aunt or grandmother would, but the view was what took the cake for me. No breakfast so would have to go into town for...

We stayed at the Bayfield Inn for 3 nights, our room was Lakeside Jacuzzi Suite 1. Room was fantastic, very comfortable king size bed, beautiful Jacuzzi to unwind in after a day of hectic sightseeing. Had a very nice television and a gas fireplace, although it was in the mid 80's while we were there and weren't feeling the fireplace,...

We stayed in this rental condo and it was marvelous! It looked out over Lake Superior and had a wrap around covered porch to enjoy the out of doors! Nicely furnished and clean. We would stay there again!!! One could cook their meals in or grill outside. It has to be super cozy on those winter nights as well!!!

Great location, beautiful setting, excellent service. We were walk-ins to hoping to find a room on a busy weekend and were greeted like royalty. We were given the opportunity to see the two rooms that were available and both were excellent, but when we told them we wanted to stay two nights we were shown another option; a studio in...

We stayed here while visiting the Apostle Island ice caves during the winter. The location in Bayfield is convenient. The condos are spread out from the actual Bayfield Inn. We had reserved what we thought (was advertised) as a Master bedroom, double twin and a pullout sofa. That was not the case. We arrived late after driving 4 1/2 hours...
