Artesian House Bed & Breakfast

Now in its 17th year of operation with new owners and newly updated, The Artesian House Bed & Breakfast offers a unique departure in design and furnishings from the traditional concept of B&Bs.  

It is certified by Travel Green Wisconsin as one of the Bayfield businesses that has made a commitment to reduce its environmental impact.

At the end of the 1,000-foot driveway, the arriving guest is presented with an exterior design  resembling a large A-frame.  A spacious deck encircles three sides of the inn, providing space for guests to sit and relax or enjoy a drink and snack.  And, immediately apparent, just below the deck, are two solar panels, which provide about half the inn's hot water needs.  

Moving inside--either through the main entrance at the north side of the inn, or the walk-out doors on the deck--the guest sees lots of open space.  The only interior walls are those that separate the four guest rooms from the great room. In addition to the 25-foot high wall of floor-to-ceiling south-facing windows, the great room features comfortable furnishings near the wood stove, .  There are plenty of books and magazines, a Bose sound system and CDs to satisfy a wide range of musical tastes.  And the inn has a wireless connection for those who can't resist staying in touch with the world.

Adjacent to the great room is the dining area, with a table that comfortably seats 8, but can handle 10, with a bit of squeezing.
Breakfast of the Day feature main dishes such as the Dutch Baby Pancake, Apple French Toast, or a Veggie Quiche.  All breakfasts include coffee or tea, juice, a sweet of the day and granola, fresh fruit, and Greek yogurt.

The four guest rooms offer a variety of options for accommodating guests, but all have the common features of:  private bath, private entrance to the deck, hangers for clothes, luggage benches, individually-controlled heat and A/C and a Bose AM/FM/CD radio, remote controlled ceiling fan.

All rooms have new eco-friendly, certi-pure queen mattresses. The Hemlock Room has a two-person jacuzzi...the Aspen Room has a queen and a single pullout sofabed...the Basswood Room and Ironwood Rooms have queen mattresses.
