Greunke's Restaurant & First Street Inn

The First Street Inn is a combination of two of Bayfield's oldest and most historic structures; the LaBonte House built in 1863 and the Wachsmuth House in 1880. There are seven rooms in the LaBonte House on the second floor above Greunke's Restaurant. These rooms are reminiscent of the inn's past, furnished with pieces from earlier years. Some have a queen size bed, others have a queen and twin, and there's a large suite with three queen size beds, private bath, loft, color TV and wet bar. Some rooms have a shared bath. Lodging in the Wachsmuth House has four restored rooms, each on the second floor and named for one of the Apostle Islands. Greunke’s Restaurant is recognized for its great breakfast and diverse lunch and dinner menu. Fish boils are offered throughout the summer season into the fall. Today, stepping in Greunke’s Restaurant is like stepping back in the ‘40’s. The Coca-Cola memorabilia, the working Wurlitzer and old soda fountain counter conjure images reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell cover on the “Saturday Evening Post.” Dogs allowed in the patio (fish boil area), after checking in at the front desk.
