We had a wonderful stay here at Lucy's place. Our room was the North room directly off the dining and kitchen area. It was quiet and very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and the ceiling fan and air conditioning was very welcome with the warm and humid weather. Thank you so much for the coffee on the sun porch and the warm breakfast in the morning. This place is a warm and inviting home. Thank you! Mike and Susie
Very clean an comfortable, easy access to shops and dining. Only one block up from ferry. Don't need to drive, walking distance to most things. If you need any help, just talk to Jack and he will steer you in the right direction.
We stayed for two nights mid-week in the Admirals Quarters and enjoyed our stay very much. Because we did a last minute reservation we got a nice discount on the room, which was large, comfortable and private. We didn't spend too much time at the Inn as we had a full schedule of activities, but were glad to come back to comfortable quarters after a busy day. Jack was a great host telling us the history of the site and interesting facts about the town. The weather wasn't great while we were there so we didn't spend any time on the deck, but the view was fantastic. We would certainly stay at the Pilot House Inn again if we had the chance.
Our stay at the Pilot House was exceptional! It was so conveniently located to everything that Bayfield offers and was extremely clean and comfortable! Jack, the owner, was always available, and was a riot to be around! We will definitely stay here again for our next trip to Bayfield!
The property is exceptionally clean and well maintained. Our room and bath/dressing area was so spacious and comfortable. The views of Lake Superior were great from either of the properties two deck lounge areas. Jack, the host, was so inviting and accommodating and made us feel right at home. My husband and I were only able to stay one night here but would definitely come back to the Pilot House the next time we have a chance to return to Bayfield.
When I found that the hotels in Bayfied had no openings on the dates I required, I booked a 3 night stay at the Pilot House Inn for my husband and myself. I am so glad that I did! Jack phoned prior to our arrival to say that the room was ready for early check-in. On arrival, he answered all questions concerning dining, activities and entertainment. He was personable and entertaining without being intrusive. The Admiral's Quarters, with a beautiful lake view,was much more attractive, spacious and comfortable than we had anticipated. It was a short walk into town and to the lake. We rarely drove our car while in Bayfield. The continental breakfast was fresh and plentiful. We are so glad that there was room at the Inn and not the hotels! The Pilot House Inn is the only place we want to stay in Bayfield in the future. r
Apostle Island Adventure Arriving in Bayfield was just so lovely and The Pilot House was icing on the cake. Our room was extremely comfortable and clean. The views from our window and that of the shared living area overlooking Lake Superior are magnificent. I wanted to move in forever. Jack, the Host/Owner is a delight and you immediately know he wants you to enjoy your stay. Thank you Jack, you made our stay better than I'd even imagined. My husband and I spent one day kayaking the sea caves and another taking the ferry to Madeline Island. We took Jacks suggestion of renting mopeds to tour Madeline island and it was such fun. I can't wait to come back!
Great location and value. As others have noted, breakfast is just ok - but who cares, we wanted to enjoy the many great restaurants in town anyway so for us this wasn't a factor at all. Jack is a great host! Friendly, available and knowledgable.
Let's start with Jack - the proprietor and owner of The Pilot House Inn. He is welcoming, cordial, smart, funny, informative and oh so accommodating. Not a need goes unturned or unnoticed. Our suite was large and immaculate with a stunningly dramatic view of Lake Superior. It's a 1st rate stay in picturesque downtown Bayfield, WI. We look forward to our return! John and Sharon D.
This was my husband and my second stay at The Pilot House, this time we were with a group of friends on our annual motorcycle trip. Once again we were very happy with our stay! The Pilot House is very clean, the rooms are great with super comfy beds, and Jack, the innkeeper, is so friendly, helpful, and pretty funny! The only downfalls I could come up with is that there was only muffins, fruit, & juice and coffee for breakfast (but there are so many great restaurants within walking distance it isn't a big deal) and a pretty steep driveway, but it is well worth the climb once you see the view! It just can't be beat and the wrap around decks are the perfect place to take it all in! (Plus, after eating so much delicious treats, I needed that climb to burn some calories). Looking forward to visiting Bayfield again and staying at The Pilot House!
My wife and I, along with three other couples invaded the Pilot House while on a 4-day tour of Northern WI waterfalls and it turned out we were checking out all of the flood damage from a month ago. Jack is a wonderful host - very knowledgeable and friendly. We all just loved the Pilot House, the clean comfy rooms and especially THE BEST VIEW IN TOWN!! We will certainly be back soon.
We spent one night at The Pilot House Inn, and were very pleased. It was very clean, private, and up-to-date. Jack, the host, was super friendly, and fun to talk to. A little higher priced than some of the other accommodations in the area,but a very nice place to spend a night.
Excellent place to stay in heart of Bayfield. We stayed in the Crows Nest and had a wonderful view of Bayfield, the harbor and Madeline Island. It looks as if everything is brand new and the unit was very clean. The owner provided excellent communication and is on site. Every place in town is easy to walk to and the ferry is right across the street. Don't expect too much for breakfast but there are great places for breakfast in Bayfield. Next time we're in Bayfield we'll be staying at the Pilot House.
My wife and I spent the weekend at Bayfield, WI and stayed Sunday night at Lucy's Place B&B. We were in the Solarium Room on the 2nd floor of this 100+ year old house. The house is located about 5 blocks up the hill from downtown Bayfield. We walked everywhere we needed to go. The yard is full of vegetable and flower gardens and there's a huge porch to sit, relax, and enjoy the lake view. Our room was cozy with a nice sitting area. The air conditioner and ceiling fans helped keep us cool and the bed was comfortable. Bruce & Barb were good hosts and provided us with lots of good, local information. Nice breakfast with coffee, fresh berries, egg casserole, muffins, etc.
We stayed for two nights in June 2016 and absolutely loved the Pilot House Inn. The place was incredibly clean, very comfortable and attractive. Jack was super helpful and there are many little thoughtful touches to make the stay easy and so pleasant. I would add a small note of caution for some, though. The driveway is a pretty steep climb and might not be comfortable for everyone to walk.
We stayed in the Crews Quarters at the Pilot House for one night. Our host Jack was everything a guest could hope for. Our room was very clean and had recently been updated, as was the rest of the property. The decks offer a fabulous view into the harbor. Conveniently located a block from the center of town with off-street parking. The continental breakfast may be less than what most would expect from a bed and breakfast, but it fit our needs. Jack was a wonderful host and we look forward to our next visit to Bayfield.
I booked my stay with Lucy's place and could not have been more thrilled with my experience. After a long day on the road, I pulled up to this gorgeous home with an incredible garden. I'm accustomed to staying in hotels, so this was an absolute treat. The owners were both very personable and accommodating. They were obviously knowledgable about the sights and restaurants in the area, so I felt comfortable and never even had to ask any questions. Even thought it was a fully booked night at Lucy's, I didn't hear a peep from anyone else in the house. It was so intimate and accommodating all while being near to the gorgeous Superior shores and sights. I didn't know Bayfield before my stay, but now it's a top vacation destination on my list thanks to Lucy's!
I found this experience to be delightful. The room was very very spacious and well appointed, not to mention the views of downtown Bayfield and Lake Superior. Bayfield's downtown and shops are in easy walking distance, allowing the ability to leave the vehicle parked at the Pilot House. Our host, Jack Armstrong, was most accommodating. We look forward to our next stay with the Armstrong's at the Pilot House.
