    Bayfield's first Bed & Breakfast and Gourmet Restaurant offers 20 guest rooms in 3 historic Bayfield homes. The Inn's unique rooms and suites have amenities like fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, antique furnishings, and stunning views of Lake Superior.

    The Rittenhouse's gourmet restaurant is open to the public for breakfast and dinner year round, and lunch from June through September. When possible, our cuisine is organically grown and locally raised. Evening dinner options include 2-course and 5-course menus from 5-9 pm. Choices include soup, salad, sorbet, entree with side dishes, and dessert.

    Annual Special Events include wine and beer tastings, mystery weekends, dinner concerts, and 'taste' events such as Margarita Island Weekend.

    The Chateau Boutin home is the perfect setting for a Bayfield wedding, with expansive grounds and superior lake views. An onsite Events Director is available to help plan your dream wedding.
