Breakfast was not on par with typical B&Bs we've visited (7 others). Room was standard. Best feature is how secluded the location is.

This was the first time we had been to a bed and breakfast as a couple. It was a wonderful experience. The host was friendly and gracious. We stayed two nights. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfasts were filling and well prepared. We will be back.

The hospitality and kindness that we received from Christine and Dennis was superb. Even though the weather was bitterly cold and we weren't able to experience a lot of the activities we had planned, Christine and Dennis made our stay very warm and welcoming.

Our stay with Christine and Dennis was wonderful. The rooms were welcoming, breakfasts were outstanding, and the innkeepers provided us with information about local sites.

We really enjoyed our stay with Christine over Apple Fest weekend. She was a great resource for the area and made us feel right at home.

Everyone there including Christine, our host were very nice. Food was delicious but there was only one serving of the hot breakfast and no meat. Very secluded location in the middle of the woods. The road in is one lane only and completely surrounded by trees. We enjoyed our stay!

We had a wonderful weekend at the Artesian House! The place is quiet and beautiful. The beds are amazingly comfortable and the food delicious! Our hostess was quite accommodating with some dietary restrictions. We would recommend this place to everyone.

We had a delightful time at Artesian House Bed & Breakfast. Christine is a warm, generous host. She is an excellent cook. The breakfasts were 5-star. We loved being in the woods with the lake nearby. The birds and other wildlife were abundant as seen from the spacious deck. We intend to go back to do more walking on the property and to enjoy the wooded setting. It was a wonderful experience.
5 on September 10, 2013
This home is a clean and comfortable haven after days full of outdoor activities. Christine is a fabulous innkeeper...serving a healthful and tasty breakfast, offering excellent tips for restaurants, recommending a superb, local spa, and possessing an engaging personality.

Christine and Dennis have done a great job in their take-over of Artesian House. The rooms are large, very clean, and have easy access directly to the outside, which makes getting in and out early or late very easy. Breakfast was delicious. The location is very convenient for going to shows at The Big Top--Ski Hill Rd is right around the corner.
5 on August 21, 2013
Our room was clean and a nice size with all the amenities - even a robe. The owner was helpful in every way.Breakfast was very tasty. It was a wonderful place to spend a few days. At breakfast everyone sat and chatted so that you got to know the other guests.

My wife is the B&B fan. I am not. But, Christine and the Artesian House have made me more acceptable to the idea. She was friendly, conversant, and accommodating. This is a wonderful place to base your explorations of the beautiful Bayfield/Apostle Islands area from during any time the year. The rooms were tastefully done with no garish colors to distract from the outside beauty. A private entrance to our room made it even more pleasurable for those times when you just want to come and go quickly. The common space is gorgeous and inviting. We highly recommend the Artesian House as a great place to stay.

Amazing Breakfast, Clean, comfortable, spacious, room. Perfect, If you are staying in the Bayfield area, I don't know why you would stay anywhere else. Ecofriendlly! Gorgeous wrap around porch, with big comfy chairs. So nice to go have a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine outside. Like I said, Perfect, we will be back!
5 on August 18, 2013
My fiance and I stayed two nights in the whirlpool suite at Artesian House Aug 2013. Christine was more than welcoming! The B&B was great all around... The room was clean. The property was quiet and secluded from town. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and full of local ingredients! What more can you ask for? Oh yeah, Christine helped us fix a flat tire the morning of our departure! Above and beyond what you would expect staying at a B&B. We will be back!
5 on August 04, 2013
This place has a great reputation and the new owners have improved and updated the property including all new bedding. They are a wealth of information on what to do and see in the area.....simply the best value in Bayfield. The price per night is undermost of the competition. This is the only place that was built as a B&B and not a converted house. You will enjoy it!

Very pleasant place in a quiet setting.

Could not have found a better place to stay

My wife and I stayed at Artesian House Bed and Breakfast in July 2013. The new owners were just starting their new occupation. Everything was perfect. We felt at home in a lovely house, in a very quiet location just five minutes away by car from Bayfield. I highly recommand to stay there.

What a beautiful place. Quiet and close to town. Thanks for a great stay.

Beautiful quiet home in the woods. Exceptional service from Al the owner. Interesting conversations and wonderful breakfasts. We have not experienced many B&B's but truly would return. Beautiful time of the year!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Artesian House. It was a bit outside of the town of Bayfield (maybe 1-2 miles), but we liked the seclusion. We had a private entrance to our room, and our room was very comfortable. We stayed in the Green room, which has a jacuzzi, and we were very happy with our choice - it was perfect for a little romantic getaway. The room was charming, but simple - so if you're looking for a luxurious, fancy stay, this might not be your place. There is also only a stall shower in the Green Room (possible because we had the jacuzzi), so be prepared. The best part of the stay, however, was the host. Al was very friendly, he made sure to give us a tour of the room and shared space so we knew how to use everything, and he made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was delicious, and he kept us entertained with stories from the area and provided recommendations for activities in the area, places to eat, etc. I highly recommend the Artesian House to someone looking for a low-key, cozy and welcoming experience.
5 on September 26, 2012
Al was great. It was our first time at a B & B and we loved it. I can't wait to do another trip. The food was great and the home was beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a better stay!
5 on September 17, 2012
We had a most enjoyable stay!. Al and Chana were very down -to -earth and it felt like a real home. Breakfasts were wonderful. Very peaceful and quiet. We'd stay there again.

Wonderful place for a restful vacation
5 on August 13, 2012
We loved our too short stay at The Artesian House. It is a 5 minute drive outside Bayfield, set in the woods. It is very quiet. No traffic noise or loud guests. The rooms were spotless. I appreciated their beautiful simplicity compared to many overdone Victorian B&Bs. The breakfast was nourishing and delicious. Al and Chana were very welcoming.
4.4 on July 16, 2012
Very unique and beautifully decorated. The main room is for guests and wonderful in which to relax. Many different seating options.
5 on July 10, 2012
My husband and I were impressed by the Artesian House: pleasant room with comfortable bed, gorgeous common area, good breakfast, engaging hosts. We will definitely stay here next time we come to Bayfield.
5 on September 14, 2011
We have visited the Artesian House many times throughout the years. We walk through the doors, see Al's smiling face and the stresses of everyday life just melt away. Can't think of a better launching pad for exploring Lake Superior country. The setting is beautiful, accommodations inviting and the breakfasts satisfying. We look forward to returning again and again.

Gracious host and super clean and neat accommodations, close to marina and a few miles from Bayfield.

We so enjoyed our stay at Artisan House. Al is a warm and gracious host who went out of his way to accommodate us. Our room looked out at trees through large windows and had everything we needed. The food was fresh and delicious and the location was away from the business of the town but close enough to get anywhere in minutes. We loved it!
5 on August 21, 2011
My husband and I had a very relaxing and pleasant experience at the Artesian House. Our room (the Green room) was beautiful and very serene. We enjoyed a tasty breakfast each morning and had great conversation. Al was very kind and offered lots of great advice on the local restaurants and things to do and see nearby. The Jacuzzi in our room came in very handy after a long day of hiking and biking around the beautiful Apostle Islands.
5 on August 06, 2011
We return to The Artesian House again and again because it is so beautiful and comfortable. It's located in a fantastic and convenient setting. The room, breakfast, and host are all top notch.
5 on August 03, 2011
We spent two nights at Artesian House and can't say enough about how positive of an experience it was. Al runs a wonderful B&B. He's a fantastic host who clearly enjoys having guests at his house. He's a great cook too--we had two fantastic breakfasts. The house and rooms were wonderful--spacious, clean, and quiet. The only downside is that the house isn't within walking distance of downtown Bayfield, although it is only a few minutes in the car to get there. It is located very close to Big Top Chautauqua though, so if you are heading there or to Mt. Ashwaybay, it is very convenient.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Artesian House. Al, the owner was very helpful and extremely comfortable to work with. We highly recommend this "bed and breakfast in the woods".
4.4 on July 28, 2011
We enjoyed our stay in the Bayfield and Madeline Island area. The Artesian House has a beautiful setting, the house is very nice and Al welcomed us into his home like family. He made some great suggestions on places to dine and sites to see. We also enjoyed our visits with the other 3 couples staying at the B&B for the weekend.
5 on June 29, 2011
The Artesian House was amazing and much more than we expected. We went there to get away after our wedding, and it was the best decision we made. Even though it rained everyday that we were there, the innkeeper, Al, always had a suggestion on where to go, where to eat, and great facts about the surrounding cities. Al made a delicious and filling breakfast every morning that we were there, as well as great conversation. The house is so cute and off the beaten path, so you always feel relaxed and have your privacy. We were there during The Artesian House's 15 year anniversary, and we can't wait to see them celebrate their 30th. Thanks for an amazing time!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights for part of our honeymoon and were so glad to have stayed at the Artesian House! Al was incredibly friendly, personable - and a great cook! Our room was spotless and cozy with all the amenities we needed. The property was beautiful. We highly recommend this B&B to anyone staying in the Bayfield area, a real treat!
5 on June 17, 2011
This was our first bed and breakfast experience and it was phenomenal. Al is very kind and extremely helpful. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay.

We shopped Bayfield on Sunday and golfed on Monday...a truly relaxing time! The jetted tub helped soothe the muscles!
5 on June 09, 2011
Had a wonderful two day stay with host Al. B & B beautically set in private setting near City of Bayfield and Big Top. Plentiful wildlife around area yet close to city. Would choose this place again without a doubt!

This was our 4th stay at the Artesian House since 1997 and host Al Chechik continues to maintain the high standards we originally encountered there. The rooms are well-maintained and comfortable, the breakfasts are tasty, and the atmosphere is as comfortable as being in your own home. Al and his new wife Chana are very pleasant and informative hosts, helping you to decide where to go and what to do if you want ideas. We hope to be back to visit again!
5 on April 30, 2011
Al never fails to impress as a host. The rooms are top notch, very clean and comfortable beds. What a relaxing time being set back on 20+ acres of pure quiet. After a sound and comfortable sleep, you arise to fresh brewed coffee and a wonderul breakfast.
4.6 on October 20, 2010
We had a wonderful stay. Al was a great host and quite talented in the kitchen. A good portion of Bayfield was closed for the season, so we would recommend visiting before the 2nd weekend of October. An upgrade to the mattress in our room would be our only suggestion.
3.8 on October 20, 2010
Very comfortable welcoming atomosphere, house layout excellent. Room was great, wonderful daylight, felt like being outside with shade open, really liked the private access from the deck. Bed quality was just okay, not great, food was very good, not outstanding but quite good. Value was pretty good too.

A very lovely home. Modern and contempary. The host went out of his way to please use. This was the best stay of our trip. Would go back again.

Warm, friendly atmosphere. Generous Breakfast and Outstanding Hospitality.

Al, the host, was very gracious and wonderful to us while we vacationed in Bayfield. Wisconsin. He made polite suggestions for dining and things to see, but left the choice to us. The rooms were very clean and private and we loved staying there. Al served us healthy and delicious breakfasts everyday. I have food and product allergies and he was very considerate of my needs. The pictures say it all, this is a glorious place to stay located on acres of wooded property. The area venues were very close to his home, but we did not have to be in the crowds constantly. I highly recommend the Artesian House. My husband and I are planning to return for our anniversary. Thanks so much!!!
5 on August 20, 2010
We spent a night at the lovely Artesian House, nestled in a lovely wooded area. The home is beautiful and inviting, peaceful and serene. We loved all of the eco-friendly touches; solar heated water, rain collecting garden, etc. The rooms each have deck entrances, which is a nice touch. The location is beautiful, and the great room is a welcoming place filled with books, a chess board, and great conversations. The breakfast was outstanding, and Al makes sure you feel at home. Thanks for a wonderful getaway!
4.8 on July 23, 2010
A unique inn that was designed to be a B&B when constructed. The great room (totally available to guests in the four private rooms) features unique artwork, an assortment of music and reading material, and real comfortability. The innkeeper (Al) is very sociable, has a wealth of local knowledge, and creates a terrific breakfast each morning. We will return to this B&B!
4.2 on June 23, 2010
Our stay was secluded and peaceful. Our host was very accommodating and had an open kitchen where we could help ourselves to glasses, ice, microwave, etc. Our room with hottub was wonderful!
4.4 on September 14, 2009
Me and my wife went here for our honeymoon and had a good time. It was our first B&B stay so i don't have much to compare to. The location is wonderful close to all the attractions but the house its self is with drawn in beautiful woods and meadow compared to most others which are right in Bayfield. Al the host is a very nice man and very knowledgeable about the history and attractions of the area. Our stay was very quiet and pleasant and I would definitely recommend.

The inn is the perfect place for a weekend retreat. It is nestled in the woods outside of town, surrounded by a variety of birds and wildlife. The proprietor was very knowledgeable about the area and recommended many fun places, restaurants, and activities.

An eclectic home full of light and grace located in the stunning northern forest and minutes from the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior.
5 on June 13, 2009
We wanted a B&B without the frilly Victorian decor. We found everything we were looking for at Al Chechik's Artesian House just south of Bayfield. Privacy, comfort, welcome, and a great breakfast. We loved the in-room Jacuzzi, the great view from our window and deck, a huge great room, and acres to wander.
4.6 on January 09, 2008
The Artesian house is beautifully designed and the rooms are beautiful and very clean. The innkeeper uses local products including pottery and soap, all very lovely. He exceeds the requirements for a "green" vacation site. There was lively talk in the evenings, but silence and individual conversations were also possible with no discomfort. A wonderful getaway!
Thanks very much for your positive comments on your stay at The Artesian House. They're very much appreciated.
