“#101 - It's all about the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

We stayed in #101 for 3 nights to attend my cousin's wedding at the boat house pavilion. The location can not be beat. It was the best! Less than a block from the "Main Street", and 2 blocks to the Madeline Island ferry line. We awoke to beautiful sunrises in our backyard of Lake Superior. Maybe 20 feet from the water, with nothing in our way but the lovely patio table provided by the condo.

We were traveling with my parents, so we opted for the 2 bedroom, 2 bath. The condo was spacious enough where we weren't crowded on top of each other. Toiletries are provided, even though the pamphlet said they were not, as was a hairdryer. Kitchen was huge, living room nice, although the tv was on the one and only switched outlet for the living room (issue for parents, not us - we weren't watching it).

We thought the beds were hard. We compared it to sleeping on a box spring. Not great, but doable. And the microwave was from 1983, older than the cousin we came to see get married. But the GE worked!

We checked in on Friday early afternoon, and their wireless worked. An hour later it stopped working, and we had a really hard time with the AT&T E network (sloooooooooooooow). Every time I called to the office, all we got was their answering machine. Sure, I could have left a message, but I didn't. My fault I guess, as I figured I'd eventually reach someone. I was wrong, so we never had wifi. Note: This property is managed by The Winfield Inn.

All the other relatives who were staying in hotels were jealous of our place. Yeah, it's really nice. I'd stay here again without hesitation for the view and location alone.

We stayed in Bayfield on the Lake 303 arriving around 3 p.m. on Friday. Villa temperature was 52 degrees. Never warmed up. No after hours number to call. Called several times next morning. Robert came at 9 a.m. and called in a guy to examine and reset furnace. Heated for a few hours. We built a fire to try to be comfortable. During night furnace did not heat again. Husband reset it 4 times. 53-55 degrees for rest of stay. UNACCEPTABLE. Unable to sleep well; unable to be comfortable in condo. Elderly relative was shaking due to cold. Very unfortunate. We are regular customers of the property management company. Avoid this property in winter. Stayed in lowest level with similar heat issues last year. All furnaces might need replacing.

FYI: inconsistent cleaning. Looked for under cushions for a missing puzzle piece. GROSS!

Room Tip: Corner units are lovely, when they are heated properly.

We had the wonderful experience of staying in one of the Bayfield Lake Condos. check in was very fast, room was more than we expected. Our condo was decked out in nautical type appeal. We had a large deck with a full size table and 6 chairs. We could see the ferries come and go as well as other boats. We were there on the 4th of July and were able to see the fire work displays from two different locations from out private deck. The grounds below were covered with people trying to find a place to sit to see the displays. The Condo is within walking distance to the ferries, town, shops, restaurants and walk paths. We also kayaked through the Sea Caves and that is a must do. We were lucky to come when the rains had ended, but they still had many waterfalls inside and outside the sea caves which added to the beauty. Great wildlife to be seen as well. Lots of good restaurants to walk to and our unit had a full kitchen so we were able to fix our own meals as well. Our unit also had two bathrooms, two bedrooms, nice size dining room and entry way, plus a beautiful living room to enjoy. All the Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We have stayed in 3 different condos at Bayfield on the Lake. The pictures online are accurate. We recently stayed in #301 at Bayfield on the lake, an upper floor condo that was really lovely. Clean, spacious, stylish yet uncluttered. Great deck/patio with view of marina. Great for a large family or small group. We went kayaking with Living Adventures - the sea caves trip was beautiful and the guides (Bjorn and his buddy) were enthusiastic &, knowledgeable- they made the trip quite a treat for me and my teen son. Fine for beginners, its easy as long as you are ok with paddling for few hours. Kudos and thank you! Also: Wolfsong ( mushing) adventures is a must do if you love dogs and enjoy being outside in winter.

Room Tip: upper level condos are larger, midlevel are nice also

You can't beat this for a few days of relaxation. Decor is dated, but things are adequate and clean. You can't beat the view, overlooking the harbor in Bayfield. You can't beat the location. Park your car and pretty much leave it parked. You can take a shuttle to Big Top Chautauqua for the name brand entertainers, restaurants within walking distance, park your bikes on the patio and take them to Madeleine Island on the ferry for a day of great riding. Beaches, some shopping, burger and a beer after the ride, and Tom's Burned Down Bar. A must see for those who enjoy eclectic surroundings.

Room Tip: If you are biking, unit 100 with a patio works great for parking bikes. 2 blocks to the Madeleine I...

This condo was located right in town. It was very clean and had a nice shaded patio with a beautiful view of Lake Superior and the marina. The interior is a little dated, but comfortable. We liked that the unit had some helpful items available for use such as laundry detergent, dishwasher and dishwashing liquids, coffee filters, etc.

Located at the harbor, close to shopping and restaurants, plus a great view. Unit was very clean. A few negatives, central heater/AC was so loud it was hard to carry on a conversation in living room, washing machine did not work correctly and furniture in living room was very uncomfortable. Still it is a nice place to stay.
