“Relaxing Escape”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

This was our 5th visit to the Little Inn and we have never been disappointed. This is our destination of choice since it is only an hours drive from our home. We were automatically upgraded from the 'Original room" to a "Carriage room". The Carriage room is equipped with a posturpedic mattress which was a nice bonus. As relaxing as the room is our highlight is always the dining experience. The chef on staff is 2nd to none. The creativity, presentation and flavour is exceptional. Our servers Tom (dinner) and Maggie (breakfast) were friendly, courteous and professional. Although accommodation and dining can be pricey I always say you get what you pay for.

What a treat! I had high expectations, as several friends had stayed here and recommended it; I was not disappointed. From the moment I walked in the door and was reminded of many of our favorite inns in England, to our breakfast the next morning, everything was wonderful. We had a lovely room on the second floor with doors opening directly on to a porch that wrapped around the building. Dinner was amazing. As our package included appetizers, entrees and dessert, we couldn't pass up the chance to try some very interesting items like the lobster poutine appetizer and the scallop fricassee entree. The service at dinner and breakfast was great, as was check-in and check-out. Everyone we encountered who works here was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I hope to come back again, to take advantage of some of the local outdoor activities (besides the shopping). It was more expensive than our usual hotel stay, but if you're looking for a special weekend, this is definitely the place.

Just returned from a little girls get-away to the little Inn in Bayfield.
It was such a wonderful treat in all aspects.
The room was very spacious and very comfortable. Dinner was spectacular and so was breakfast.
The service in the restaurant and time of check in was wonderful.
Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: 3of us shared a room in the main building

We stayed at The Little Inn for two July 2013 nights. We stayed in room 35. We ate in the inn's restaurant both nights. Our room was small; the bathroom only had a small stand-up shower. All of this was fine with us since this is a heritage hotel which we enjoy. We were offered the opportunity to look at the room before we agreed to stay at the inn. (We were walk-ins without reservations.) The only odd thing about the room was the bed. The mattress was on a very high wooden platform. A stool was provided the assist in the climb. A pole vaulting pole might have been more useful given the height of the bed but the room is probably too small for a good take-off run. If you think you might roll out of bed at night, wear a parachute while you sleep. The staff were very friendly, efficient and helpful. The food was fine. After wandering down to Bayfield's dock after dinner to see the sun set over Lake Huron, we enjoyed having a very quiet drink on the inn's porch. Bayfield is close to several theatres located in this area of Ontario. We visited a very nice theatre in the country near Grand Bend.

The Little Inn of Bayfield is an absolutely lovely old Inn in a quaint lakeside village. Lots of cute shops and galleries full of very friendly staff members to help you find what you're looking for. Close to Goderich and Grand Bend for more fun shops and restaurants. The rooms are well equipped and super clean. The restaurant is superb. Catch the sunset down on the beach. I have been several times and have always been very satisfied with my stay.

Room Tip: I like the Carriage House rooms, across from the main Inn. They are quiet and have private little b...

Caught a mid-week winter special and had great value for money. Stayed in the cupola room with a little attic balcony that gave added light and charm. Every detail was taken care of as soon as you asked including morning coffee delivered to your door! The restaurant was outstanding, even mid-week and the wine cellar fully stocked with a wide variety of unusual wine selections. Wonderful, quiet retreat in winter. Only addition would be a fireplace in room, but they were more than happy to start the lounge fireplace when it was just the two of us in the evening. Top marks overall!

We purchased a 2 night package with 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner. We stayed in the Widow's Walk, which was absolutely perfect. If you're looking for space and privacy, the Widow's Walk is for you. The staff is friendly and accommodating; the warmth is appreciated in a small inn which tends to all of the small things. Bayfield is lovely. We took an art class at KryArt (right next door), had a fire on the beach, and wandered through the local stores. A really beautiful town. The Little Inn was spotless, airy and had excellent service. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: The Widow's Walk is private, because it's the only room on the 3rd floor. If you don't...
