OK, but not Fabulous!
We booked two nites at the Old Rittenhouse Inn in Room VII. The outside of the Inn was beautiful in the fall foliage and sunshine when we arrived. Breakfasts were nice too. Unfortunately the room itself was disappointing. The redeeming factor is that it was large with a king bed and had its own bathroom. Compared to other vintage B&Bs where we have stayed we found the decorating terribly dreary and totally dated with old-time bordered wallpaper and an usual collection of antique oriental fans on the walls instead of pictures. We knew that there would be a large 1980s-vogue jacuzzi in the room that we wouldn’t use. However, the online photos show a fireplace with a burning fire. Reality was a sofa pushed up against the fireplace so it could not be used even in October! There is no TV is the room, no mini-fridge nor a coffeemaker as is customary with a more upscale room. To perhaps maintain the period look of the Inn, if that is indeed the point of not having these amenities, all could be installed in the armoire in the room. Frankly with so many places in Bayfield closed due to Covid there is not much to do after 7:30 pm. So with no TV and difficult reading with the low wattage antique lamps we wished we had booked one nite instead of two. They also do not serve dinner now except on weekends. With the tired look and lack of fireplace warmth in the room Old Rittenhouse was OK, but when we come back we will stay elsewhere.

Beautiful place. Did kinda miss a TV , as it was cold outside, so that limited things to do at night. And COVID limited restaurant availability. Very nice time.

Victorian Charm at Bayfield
This is a beautiful B&B. We were at room 5 which was a great size and it seemed like that other rooms on the floor were the same. Old Victorian charm with modern amenities. COVID has had an impact but was managed reasonably good. We highly recommend this hotel.

I loved the old time feel. Staff were great and very accommodating! Air conditioner was a plus. Have a TV option might be nice. I like to watch local news and was unable to at night. I stayed at another B&B and they had a pillow mattress added for comfort. Otherwise it was amazing and would still come again! I only stayed one night and would have loved to have stayed longer. Thank-you so much for allowing me to stay and make me feel safe with Covid 19. I loved your strict face mask policy. I believe as a business owner it is your lead we all should follow. So thank-you so much! Will certainly come again!
