“Great Vibe”

“Such a great, old-fashioned ‘Mom & Pop’ vibe! Having the walking trail just down the stairs is such a nice way to walk to the shops and restaurants in town. We attended our first Big Top Chautauqua show, and the free shuttle stopping there was such a huge bonus.”

~ Sue Ann

bayfield seasonal adventure guide

Bayfield sits on the shores of Lake Superior and is the gateway to the Apostle Islands. Here you’ll find a small town brimming with character and charm surrounded by 22 islands and 9 incredible lighthouses.

The streets are lined with historic buildings, vintage lamposts, and cobblestone streets. Bayfield looks like a set from a Hallmark movie. It offers a one-of-a-kind shopping experience showcasing local artists, from potters to painters and jewelry makers.

Family-owned orchards and fruit farms decorate the Bayfield hillsides. You can pick fresh berries, cherries, and apples to make a delicious crisp. Don’t forget to sample hard apple cider and wine made right at the farms.

Going to a show at Big Top Chautauqua is an absolute must. Take the Big Top Shuttle right from Seagull Bay and head up to Mount Ashwabay to experience “culture under canvas.” Here you’ll enjoy the music of big named artists, storytelling, and a bit of bluegrass.

And for outdoor enthusiasts, the adventures abound. Kayaking, sailing, hiking, and biking are just a step outside your door.

We’re the Carriers – Isaac and Mollie. We’re the ones behind the desk, answering the phone, changing the laundry, and pushing the cleaning cart – alongside our amazing staff.

In 2016, after our son Axel was born, Isaac got the idea to move back to his hometown of Bayfield, Wisconsin. The crazy part is he wanted to buy a motel.

In 2017, with an 11-month-old (and another on the way), we took the leap and purchased Seagull Bay Motel.

Since then, we’ve been raising our three boys and restoring our lakeside motel and adjoining properties to create a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere just for you.

We’re the Carriers – Restoring a Slice of Bayfield Just for You!

our story

The 

Seagull Bay

Experience

There are many reasons to pack your bags and stay at Seagull Bay, but don’t take our word for it! 

Here’s what our guests have to say:

“Escape the demands of a rigorous job and just breath…”


“I’ve been coming to Seagull Bay for over 30 years and always feared it would someday be replaced by a new, modern, but cookie-cutter, hotel. But you Carriers have done an OUTSTANDING job of keeping what so many of us longtime customers LOVED about the place Mike and Jeannie created. But enhancing it in the most wonderful ways (I LOVE the new bedding…) I used to come to Bayfield and Seagull Bay to escape the demands of a rigorous job and just BREATH for a while. Now that I’m retired, I still anticipate and enjoy what it has always been – a lovely, calm, and peaceful place to be. Well done, Carriers.”

~ Nancy

“Great Vibe”


“Such a great, old-fashioned ‘Mom & Pop’ vibe! Having the walking trail just down the stairs is such a nice way to walk to the shops and restaurants in town. We attended our first Big Top Chautauqua show, and the free shuttle stopping there was such a huge bonus.”

~ Sue Ann

“Quaint hotel with beautiful views”


“Quaint hotel with sweeping views of the bay. We had a second-floor room that included a shared balcony which was a lovely spot for morning coffee. The coffee maker in the room made a surprisingly good cup. Nothing fancy about this classic upgraded motel but very clean and charming place to spend a night.”

~ Paul T

“Family- owned with charm”


“A clean, charming motel with attention to detail. You could tell the owners care about their property and their customers. Wonderful lake views sitting on the deck or just looking out your window. Access to the walking trail makes for an easy walk into town.”

~ Deb K
