Rooms range from $125 to $395, with a wide variety of unique accommodations. Features include wood burning fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, King and Queen beds, antique furnishings, and scenic views of Lake Superior.

The Rittenhouse's gourmet restaurant is open to the public for breakfast, lunch (groups by reservation), and dinner. Executive Chef, Matt Chingo, showcases the regional harvest of the Bayfield Peninsula. Whenever possible, our cuisine is organically grown and locally raised.

Evening dining options include 2-Course or 5-Course meals. Our Signature 5-Course Dinner is served 5-9 pm, and includes soup, salad, sorbet, entree with side dishes, and dessert for $55.

The Rittenhouse Inn also offers a wide range of Bayfield wedding services, and perfect location for a destination wedding in Bayfield. Contact our Special Events Coordinator, who is happy to help with all your plans: events@rittenhouseinn.com

Wassail Dinner Concerts - $49-$75
Wassail! This old English word was used as a greeting or salutation on festive occasions such as the holidays and Christmas Eve. It was also a toast, wishing good health and prosperity to a friend or neighbor. Wassailing usually involved spirits: spiced ale carried in a Wassail Bowl, (especially spiced ale), singing carols and making merry. At Old Rittenhouse Inn, the word takes on a new life of its own. Wassail Holiday Dinner Concerts, held each year in December, are 3-Course Luncheons or 5-Course Dinners paired with a concert of holiday music performed by the Rittenhouse Singers, a professional vocal choir backed by local musicians and directed by Innkeeper, Jerry Phillips. The Rittenhouse, an 1890s Queen Anne Victorian mansion, is fully decorated for the season: her pillars wrapped in ribbons, evergreen boughs and twinkling lights. A massive Christmas tree greets visitors in the front hall, and the holiday decorations continue inside the dining room, which seats up to 64 concert-goers. The meals are described verbally by the maitre 'd, and include tasty soups and salads, entree favorites like Roast Pork Loin with Apple Cider Glaze or Champagne Chicken, and desserts like decadent Turtle Sundaes, fresh baked pies, and the classic Figgy Pudding with Creme Anglaise (laced with bourbon). There's also the famous Rittenhouse Wassail Punch, made with Cider and cranberry juice, bourbon and spices. Leading the show is the exuberant Jerry Phillips, who conducts his choir with seemingly limitless energy, often keeping time on tambourine, wood blocks, or bells as the singers perform throughout the Inn's dining room and hallways. Convenient Lodging Packages are available. Call 715-779-5111 or visit http://www.rittenhouseinn.com/e7.htm for concert dates and information.
