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!

Our stay

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!

Quiet, comfortable, great value

4.0 on August 18, 2014

Artesian House is located a just a few miles outside of Bayfield. We found the location peaceful and quiet. The value was excellent. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The rooms are located just off the main gathering space, so you feel a bit close to the other guests.

Lovely place for a quiet stay just outside Bayfield, WI

5 on August 11, 2014

What a lovely spot, nestled in the woods with 4 beautifully-appointed rooms, Just outside of Bayfield, WI. Newly redecorated or completely redone, this home is perfect. Our breakfast each day was tasty, including local Bayfield bakery items.

B&B at its best!!!

5 on July 30, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our few nights at the Artesian House (weekend of July 12th). Upon our arrival, we felt as If we were welcomed, long last relatives. The house is nestled in 25 acres of woods with a one minute drive to the main road and a 3 minute drive into Bayfield. The house is newly remodeled; our room was modernized, of ample size, neatly appointed and impeccably clean. (We forgot a number of things at home and when we asked them to direct us to a store, Christine and Dennis offered to lend us what we forgot). Others have said it well – Christine and Dennis were very friendly yet not intrusive. We enjoyed the time we did spend with them in the main room. Breakfast could only be described as perfect. Can’t wait to revisit!

Cozy B&B

5 on July 30, 2014

My husband and I went here for our anniversary weekend to go to Madeline Island. The hosts are extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area and gave us ideas about where to go and what to do. The rooms were cozy and comfy. I loved that there were no TV's in the whole place so we had to be sociable :) Breakfast was delicious as well! I am gluten free and Christine made breakfast that accommodated that. I would definitely go back and recommend staying there to anyone that wants great B&B that isn't too expensive.

Great Weekend

4.6 on July 22, 2014

Couple 50's ... Explored Bayfield and enjoyed our evenings at Artesian House. In the morning, the fresh strawberries, blackberries and Mango topped with greek yogurt were delicious. The new owners were extremely nice and accommodating (we're not usually B&Ber's, so their friendly presence was very enjoyable, but not intrusive). And I especially enjoyed Dennis' sense of humor. You can't go wrong here -- great value. Great wifi and great Verizon cell coverage. 5 minutes to town. Clean and very nice. Do it!

Summer Stay

4.6 on July 21, 2014

The rooms were comfortable and clean. The cotton robes hanging in the bath were a nice touch. The B&B is just outside of town on several wooded acres and wrap around porch for views of the woods. The hosts were friendly and the breakfasts were ample and tasty. We would stay here again;.
