We stayed here a couple of weeks ago. Actually, it was a return trip for us. It would be our number one choice, also, in the future. This time, we stayed in the Cottage, which has a kitchen, living room, tv, first floor bedroom with bath (queen bed), and an upstairs with 2 queens and 2 twins in one room....

We liked the location just fine. There is a walking path to town and the water views in back are lovely. The rooms are clean, BR adequate and we slept very well. Driving/parking in this small town is easy. Good restaurants and activities. Well worth visiting. The Seagull Bay is a bit of a throwback if you like that and...

Other reviewers have said it; we'll say it again. Great deal, clean, super location, nice owners. Loved the review that said it is the best deal in the world for budget travelers. We're not really budget travelers, we can afford a nice hotel or what you might call upscale but this is our first choice every time in Bayfield. Good...

My husband and I had the privilege of staying at Seagull Bay Motel for two nights. We absolutely loved it! Super friendly and we felt like we were at home. Loved that you are encouraged to be self sufficient. Mike suggested walking to Maggie's restaurant! Loved it there so much we went twice! If we ever have the chance to...

This may be the best deal I've encountered in almost forty years of travel. First, the view is gorgeous, as many reviewers note. Almost all rooms look directly over the lake, and a balcony allows you to sit outside while enjoying the view of the big water and Madeline Island. Second, the rooms are very well-maintained, far better than most...

We stayed one night and had a wonderful nights sleep. We enjoyed visiting with other guests on the decks overlooking the beautiful Lake Superior. Excellent value, very clean. We loved that we were close to all the shops and restaurants in Bayfield, plus we were happy to be near the trail.

The rooms are dated, but clean. The walls are thin. No A/C, but has heat and fans. Excellent view of the lake. The owners are friendly. Good location in Bayfield on hiking/bike path. Good value overall.

We have been coming to Seagull Bay Motel for years and absolutely love the friendly and caring nature of Mike and Jeanne who own the motel and have for over 20 years! This is a no frills motel with not all the added amenities you may find in a large expensive hotel. What you will find is a super clean,...

We stayed here twice, going to and from the Upper Peninsula, and the host could not have been more helpful. The pet friendly rooms are a bit old-fashioned, but warm and comfy with everything one needs AND the best view going from the window and seats on the shared veranda. There is easy access to a walking path and it's...

This is a family run mtel. It is older but our room was clean and reasonably modern. The motel is right on the shore of Lake Superior. Walking trails are just steps away. One of them took us through an old apple orchard. The City of Bayfield is a short walk in the opposite direction from the walking trails. We...
