We arrived at the inn after a long day kayaking and were told by Michael that there had been a change in their availability at the inn and the room we had reserved in the sister inn could be upgraded to a suite in the main house. He then took us to a fabulous room #12--the Moroccan suite. This room was well worth the climb to the third floor! The room was absolutely lovely. It had an extremely comfortable king bed, a lovely sitting area with a reading cove that had a view of the lake, a two sided fireplace between the bedroom and the bathroom with a whirlpool tub and a second bathroom with a very large shower. The room was very comfortable and quiet.
We walked around Bayfield the first night looking for a place for dinner. The wait time was very long everywhere so we went back to the inn and Michael arranged to have dinner and wine brought to us in our room. The perfect quiet meal after a long day! Breakfast both days of our stay was amazing--all sorts of baked goods and lots of local fresh fruit, although the portions were enormous. We made dinner reservations at the inn on our second night, and we were treated to a lovely relaxing delicious feast.
Special thanks to all the staff that helped to make our stay so nice. This was a great place to stay in the Bayfield area and one of our best B & B experiences ever.
