Bayfield Gem

The Pinehurst Inn is in a perfect location for exploring the Bayfield area and the hosts went out of their way to make their guests feel welcome in this Eco friendly facility. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the breakfasts were outstanding.

Best of Bayfield

4.6 on September 07, 2014

Our escape to Bayfield was made complete with our stay at the Pinehurst. The peace and quiet matched the pace of Bayfield. We had a quaint room with a luxurious whirlpool to relax in after a day of kayaking, biking or hiking. Each morning we were able to relax and recharge with a delicious breakfast. I highly recommend the Pinehurst to anyone who is planning a trip to Bayfield. I know it is the only place I will stay when I return!

Loved it!

We felt right at home at Pinehurst. Lovely strolls around the gardens, delicious healthy meals, and a great appreciation for the Inn's dedication to being green. The oversized soaking tub was super delightful.

Ice Caves, Dog Sledding and Sled Dog Races

4.8 on February 07, 2014

We came up from Chicago at the end of January to see the amazing Lake Superior ice caves, learn to dog sled with Wolfsong Adventures in Mushing and volunteer in the Sled Dog races. This was the best two day vacation ever! We packed it in. The Whispering Pines room was very comfortable and offered a view of the sunrise over Lake Superior. Pinehurst's hosts offered a hearty, tasty and healthy breakfast that started our days with great conversation and good vibes. We also enjoyed sharing dog sledding experiences with other guests in the meeting room of the Garden House. We loved that the bed and breakfast owners are environmentally conscience and shared their experiences and knowledge freely. Thanks for all the effort to detail to make our stay very enjoyable and comfortable. Lynora and Vic

Dog Sledding

4.4 on January 04, 2014

Our stay at the Pinehurst was wonderful. We stayed in the Whispering Pines room; we selected Pinehurst because we went dogsledding. It was very cold outside but both Pinehurst and Wolfsong exceeded our expectations. We have bragged and told many of our friends they need to experience this. The fireplace in the room was perfect and helped to set a relaxed and pampered atmosphere. The sauna was great and coming out each night to a clear sky full of stars is just something beyond my words. The food was wonderful and we felt very pampered. I didn't use the spa but I want to the next time we stay. Steve and Nancy were very helpful with places to eat but there was also lots of local literature about what to see and do in the room. Highly recommend!

Eco friendly nice getaway

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon. it was very off season in bayfield but the innkeepers were very helpful in telling us what was open and giving us maps. It is about a five minute drive away from town, which was very nice. great rooms for a great price and a delicious breakfast every morning. No complaints.

My husband and I recently stayed at Pinehurst Inn as part of a weekend getaway. I also ran the WhistleStop Half-Marathon that weekend, and being able to come back to this property was a luxury indeed! I took full advantage of the jacuzzi tub in our room. Also, the bed and linens were amazingly soft and cozy. Just what I needed after a long run. My husband said he slept better here than in our own bed! The breakfast was delicious, and we were very pleased with the early morning breakfast accommodations on the morning of the race. The only thing I wish I would have done was scheduled a massage! We will definitely be back to Pinehurst.

Great B&B

My wife and I stayed in Holly's room for our anniversary. Steve and Nancy were extremely kind and helpful answering questions on what to do in Bayfield. The area was beautiful amd quiet. The breakfast was so delicious and they even made a gluten free meal for my wife. I would strongly recommend the Pinehurst Inn.
