My wife & I were in Bayfield, WI recently for a birding event and had the good fortune to stay at the Rittenhouse Inn, between the wonderful accommodations, a staff that treated you like family and a five course dinner featuring champagne, free range chicken & lemon raspberry creme brulee, the day could not have been more perfect!
The Old Rittenhouse Inn is absolutely beautiful and the kindness and responsiveness of the staff is unmatched. We stayed in Room VII. It was HUGE, comfortable, clean and the bathroom was gigantic, including a second tub with shower --- way more than I have ever seen in any room at a B&B. The only issue with our stay was a lack of hot water in the later evening (around 7pm) on Saturday night. It must have been a case of too many jacuzzi tubs at once because the problem did not reoccur the second night. Overall, we loved the Rittenhouse Inn and would gladly stay again.
We had a great time at the Inn. The people there are very friendly and attentive. We stayed in room #2 which has 4 windows that overlook the downtown and give a great view of the lake and Madeline Island. Breakfast was exceptional. Julie, our waitress, was a fountain of enthusiam and knowledge of the house, town, and area. You can't go wrong staying here.
We have stopped by this place before and always wanted to stay but it was pricey. We were on our way through town to go to Duluth and stopped to see what was available they offered us a price that we had to stay and change our plans just so we could stay at this B&B. It was "awesome." The breakfast & staff were outstanding!
We had an amazing, small wedding while using The Rittenhouse Inn rooms and their Cottage for our accommodations last weekend! All the rooms were very clean, wonderfully decorated, and comfortable with wonderful views and the Cottage worked perfectly for the 9 of us to gather. We especially enjoyed utilizing the whirlpools in the rooms we stayed and enjoyed the chair swing on the front porch of the Cottage. The Rittenhouse Events Coordinator, Wendy, was a great help ensuring everything went swimmingly! We had the perfect flowers delivered as well as professional and accommodating photographers for our event! Wendy also set up reservations at the Old Rittenhouse for our reception dinner with a 5 course, knock-your-socks-off, meal! Even our 4 year old had his own 5 course version and enjoyed the experience! Thank you Wendy and Rittenhouse staff! We truly could not have asked for anything better or more accommodating! We wouldn't have changed a thing!
We spent the fourth of July weekend at the Rittenhouse Inn. We had an outstanding experience. Our room was exquisite and the food was perfection in its taste and presentation. The entire staff was incredibly pleasant and helpful. We were very entertained by the views from the grand wrap-around porch... especially Lake Superior. We also appreciated the short walk to the shops and festivities in downtown Bayfield. We are anxiously awaiting our next stay at the Old Rittenhouse Inn.
This was the fourth time we've stayed at the Old Rittenhouse Inn and every visit has been divine. The Suite XI is magical with its large whirlpool, fireplace, steam shower, balcony, window seat overlooking Lake Superior and a comfy king size bed. The food and service is always outstanding. A real gem on Lake Superior.
The Rittenhouse Inn transports you to another place and time- a place of Victorian elegance where the worries of today melt away in a 'customer comes first' time capsule. Guests experience.Beautiful surroundings and gourmet dining- all in a most welcoming atmosphere- the total package!
