We enjoyed our first visit to the charming little town of Bayfield which happened to be the weekend of Christmas in Bayfield. Our stay at The Little Inn of Bayfield was lovely. It was all decked out in Christmas decorations and it felt like we had stepped back in time to a Victorian village at Christmas time. Just beautiful. I... More

I planned this trip as a much needed weekend away to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had been told about The Little Inn of Bayfield years ago but hadn't had a chance to stay there until now. I can't believe what we've been missing! Absolutely outstanding service. This gem in the heart Ontario's west coast is not to be missed.... More

We have stayed at the Inn before, but not since the change of ownership. We had a wonderful two days there mid November. The staff, ambience, food and room were all 10/10. The changes were all for the better, respecting the age and quaintness of the property. We ate in the bar, and the vegetarian lasagna was second to none... More

My Mom and I stayed at The Little Inn for one night in November. The inn itself is small and very quaint; so small that reception closes down around the dinner hour and guests are provided with a key to gain entry if they leave the premises. Reception was friendly and I loved that they called my mother, who arrived... More

Great spot, staff were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the cottage in a loft room - clean, nice décor, loved the layout, made it feel like more of a getaway. Town is very pretty and quaint, lots of shops to stroll through, enjoyed looking at the cottages/homes. Beautiful waterfront area. Great pricing through the Christmas in Bayfield offer... More

We had an older room above the dining room. It had been nicely redecorated. It was very large and had a balcony overlooking main street in Bayfield. Breakfast was included in our package and it is well worth the price. Sunday brunch was very good.

The Little Inn of Bayfield is a lovely Inn, beautifully appointed, with terrific food and welcoming staff set in a charming town on Lake Huron. We have been five times now and highly recommend it for any type of getaway. The beds and linens are new and of top quality. A really good sleep was had by all!

The Inn has been renovated and updated since our last stay. It is nicely done, all things change, but we missed the old world charm of the Inn. Our suite was lovely and very comfortable. Our Anniversary dinner party was in the middle of a Murder Night Mystery event. We had been told we would be in the quieter Taproom,... More
