**NOTES: Our log cabins can sleep up to 6 max EACH for the safety and comfort of those renting. They were designed with a smaller footprint and we need to follow this Maximum allowance for meeting fire safety code. If you have a larger group may we suggest cabin #2, our larger of the 3 cabins we rent out OR alternatively renting two different cabins to suit your group needs.
None of our log cabins are equipped with air conditioners. We designed the cabins with a ceiling fan and all windows and main door have screens. We also provide a portable fan in each. Fireplaces are turned off in mid-June to mid-September. At times open-air fire restrictions are in effect - we shall inform you of this if applicable in the course of your stay.
**All log cabins are non-smoking/vaping units. We urge any registered guest cannibis users to go for a walk off of Resort property to enjoy those away from our kids and other guests. This is VERY important! Signage of this notice is on site to be a reminder of our Resort property rules.
Thanks for taking note of the above important points.
Bayside Resort was officially opened for business in mid-February 2011. We are a small family-owned business.
Bayside Resort consists of three (3) waterfront log cabins, steps away from the water’s edge. All cabins are winterized and available for rent all year round.
Cabin #3 is where you'll check in upon arrival. It's our house. Due to COVID no entry into the office is being permitted. Instead we'll chat outside of your cabin at time of check-in following social distance measures. No tours are provided.
- CHECK-IN TIME: Anytime after 4:00pm. If you plan on arriving after dark please let us know.
- CHECK-OUT TIME: 11:00am.
NOTE: Due to extra cleaning procedures we are undertaking because of COVID safety measures we CAN NOT permit early check-in's at our Resort any longer. We appreciate your understanding moving forward as we all get used to a new norm.
On site, you will have full access to our private beach, tiered waterfront decks with plenty of Adirondack chairs & additional bench seating options. There are two (4-person) paddle boats for you to use as you please. A boat launch is located closeby to Bayside Resort and boat docking is available at the resort. Nearby, the Rainbow Ridge Golf Course offers an 18-hole challenge, if you're up to it. There are actually 3 golf courses on the island. Our closest one also offers glow-ball golfing opportunities at select times of the year, which provides even more of a challenge after dusk for golf enthusiasts.
During the winter months, local roads and our laneway are well maintained. If you happen to be here between late January and the end of March, you'll probably want to go ice fishing. The lake ice gets to be 2-3' deep - bring your auger. For a number of years, Bayside Resort has hosted the "Manitoulin Ice Showdown", an annual Ice Fishing Derby and fun for the whole family. The event is a joint venture of Wikwemikong Tourism and The Manitoulin Expositor and has been hosted by TV's Bob Izumi and Italo Labignon. In fact, Bayside Resort has been featured in several episodes of the popular "Canadian Sport Fishing" TV show. If you'd rather explore the island, consider booking an ATV Excursion or rent a pair of skis or snowshoes.
Whether you visit Manitoulin Island for leisure or business, we aim to make your accommodations and stay at Bayside Resort unforgettable.
There are two different styles to choose from. Cabin #1 and Cabin #4 are similar in their design...
Log Cabins #1 and #4 are constructed of dovetail cedar (square) logs. These two cabins are very similar in that they both feature a main floor master bedroom with one queen-sized bed and a 3-piece ensuite washroom. A ladder in the living room leads to the upper loft, with 2 twin sized beds. Please note that children must be at least 12 years of age to be in the loft and supervision is required to ensure their safety. Our log cabins are equipped to sleep up to 6 guests. The full kitchen features a 4-element gas range (no oven), a double (stone) sink and butcher block countertops. A gas fireplace ensures your comfort in cooler weather.
