This country inn is a cornerstone of Bayfield. Opened in 1847, it’s one of the oldest hotels around, surrounded by the town's bustling shops and restaurants. A five-minute walk to Clan Gregor Square puts you in the middle of the charming lakeside town, and Bayfield Main Beach is a 10-minute walk away.

Guests can relax on the two-storey porch, which is covered and adorned with Victorian trim, or have a pint at the Four-in-Hand Taproom, which serves up Ontario craft beers paired with casual lunch or dinner fare. The Willow Room’s elegant dining room, with exposed brick and dark wood furniture, can be rented out for small weddings, and features Huron County produce for breakfast and dinner.

Carriage Rooms in the main inn have all the expected amenities and come with bathrobes. They are decorated with antique furniture and fluffy linens. Select suites have separate living areas, some with fireplaces or Jacuzzis. Parking and Wi-Fi are complimentary for all guests of the hotel.

The ambiance and the bed was very comfortable.

only one slight downfall - someone close to us (either the room above or beside) was showering at 6am and it was very loud. I guess with the older buildings perhaps not as much insulation in the walls -- no big deal though --- it was still an amazing stay! WE loved the food too - lots of food for the price. Excellent place to go for an overnight "getaway".
