Lovely stay with extremely helpful and flexible hosts!

4.8 on March 01, 2015

Our stay was booked at the last minute (the night prior) with a late arrival the following day. Our hosts, Christine and Dennis, were very flexible and accommodating as a result, which was so helpful in making our trip/stay even possible (cannot thank them enough for that). Breakfast was delicious and included plenty of local, fresh foods. Our room (The Aspen) was extremely clean, comfy, large and provided a view as well as separate exit/entrance in this very modern bed and breakfast. Free Wi-Fi was easily accessible and worked great our entire stay. Another bonus was that they accept gift certifcates.

Felt like home

Christine and Dennis are excellent hosts--they are very friendly, accommodating, and the breakfast Christine makes in the mornings is delicious. The house is beautiful. It is well kept, with modern amenities and free wifi. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. It is located in a quiet wooded area in between Washburn and Bayfield, so it feels a lot more private than other establishments in town. I definitely recommend staying here. I will be next time I go up to Bayfield!

Peaceful & Serene.

We very much enjoyed our stay over MEA weekend at The Artesian House. It's nestled in a beautiful setting, our host was kind, and we were served an outstanding breakfast each morning. I would highly recommend a visit to this cozy establishment.

Christine and Mark were very warm, friendly and welcoming. The room was great, the breakfasts delicious! They were also very helpful in providing local information so we were able to plan our outings with great knowledge of what to expect where. I will certainly be planning future stays at the Artesian House.

Beautiful B&B in North Wisconsin

5 on October 13, 2014

The setting is beautiful and close to the Lake and other amenities. Our host and hostess were very pleasant, room was beautiful with large windows that looked out into the woods and a separate door to enter directly into our room. Breakfast was delicious!

Clean, welcoming, retreat

4.6 on October 02, 2014

We enjoyed our weekend at Artesian House B&B. It was our first visit to this location, and first time in Bayfield. Good breakfasts (gracefully accommodated our special dietary needs), bright clean rooms with new beds and linens. We enjoyed the deck for pre-bedtime star gazing and all the helpful tips on things to see and do in the area. Thank you! We hope to be a return guest!

Great time

4.4 on September 21, 2014

The food was great tasting but would have liked to have more of it. Christine was so very personable and extremely helpful. She told us where to go to get tickets for a cruise of the islands and the great places to eat in town. We had such a wonderful time, I would recommend this place to everyone.

Excellent B&B

5 on September 12, 2014

Every time I book a B&B there's a touch of apprehension as to whether I've made a good choice - but that's half the adventure, right? I think you'll find pleasure if you book this place. Warm hosts, clean contemporary rooms, excellent breakfast. A nice location: close to nature, secluded, yet within 2 or 3 minutes of everything the Bayfield area has to offer. Enjoy the patio!

The water tasted awesome and it was so peaceful and quiet. Very friendly hosts.

Artesian House Review - "Outstanding"

5 on August 18, 2014

We had a wonderful time at the Artesian House. It was close to the Big Top for a concert we were attending and also close to everything in Bayfield. The breakfast's were excellent and Christine did everything she could to accomodate the diverse needs of guests that were there with us. Highly Recommended!
