Rooms & Rates

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 Tap Room, 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 for 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. The Guest Cottage has loft-style suites, each with a private patio, whirlpool tub and cozy seating areas. Parking and Wi-Fi are complimentary for all guests of the hotel.

We stayed in room 4. The LR furniture is extremely uncomfortable and the room is crowded with that large wooden bar that has no use there.
