LOG CABIN DETAILS
Bayside Resort is a proud Indigenous Tourism Destination Resort offering HST-FREE accommodations on Manitoulin Island year-round! Resort is situated on Reserve lands and no taxes applicable due to historical Treaties. Book your stay and enjoy the 13% HST in savings! The price is the price and here nothing's extra!
Each authentic log cabin comes equipped with modern amenities such as a flat screen T.V. with Shaw satellite service, Wifi Internet, all bath and bed linens, a fully equipped kitchen, and a seperate dining space. Each log cabin is winterized and perfectly appointed for meeting and exceeding your Manitoulin vacation getaway, whether it be for business or leisure, or a mixture of both ;)
In the fall of 2022 we invested numerous upgrades to log cabins including expansive Timber front porches on cement pads, new living room couch, large art work, window blinds, fresh paint, trim, various other decore, red adirondack chairs and matching side tables, plus new adult kayaks! These are high-end accommodations with numerous Resort offerings so we're definitely not your 'roughing it' type of log cabin rentals you may envision! We take pride in the maintenance of our waterfront log cabins. You will enjoy Resort perrenial garden and the expansive waterfront property.
At Bayside Resort there are two (2) different styles to choose from, one cabin type was designed to be larger than the other two we offer for rent year-round. Cabins #1 and Cabin #4 are both smaller in size and quite similar in their design...
Log Cabins #1 and #4 are our 1 Bedroom style plus an upper loft that is equipped to sleep up to 4 guests max.
These two cabins are very similar in that they both feature a main floor master bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a 3-piece ensuite washroom (no tub). The full kitchen features a propane-gas range cooktop (no oven), a double stone sink with butcher block countertops and glass ranghood fan. A large Napolean gas-propane fireplace in living room ensures your comfort.
A ladder leads to loft, with two (2) twin sized beds. Loft overlooks the livingroom, kitchen/dining space.
These style of log cabins were the first to be constructed on our waterfront property. They were carefully constructed of local lumber using dovetail cedar (square) logs stained in a protective cedar color throughout.
Cabins #1 or #4 Rental Rates: (*4 Guests Maximum capacity)
- $175.00 per night for 1 guest
- $200.00 per night for 2 guests
- $225.00 per night for 3 guests
- $250.00 per night for 4 guests (MAX)
Our deluxe log cabin #2 is our larger cabin featuring 3 bedrooms. It is equipped to sleep up to 6 guests max.
This deluxe pine log cabin differs from the other cabin types as it is our larger-sized cabin rental option. It features a split log staircase (so no ladder, no loft) and is heated using in-floor heating.
On the mainfloor the open concept kitchen features thick butcher block countertops, glass rangehood fan, propane-gas cooktop range (no oven), large rustic harvest dining table with seating for 6, plenty of bright lighting and many other upgraded features.
Upstairs are 3 seperate bedrooms equipped with a total of 4 beds (1 Queen, 1 Double and 2 Twins). The front bedroom (large open loft style) leads to a covered balcony with glass railing overlooking Two O'Clock Creek and Manitowaning Bay.
The logs for Cabin #2 were sourced from local cedar and pine. It was constructed in our second phase of the resort build, completed for rent in 2012. Its the one we tend to recommend for larger groups or those simply wanting more space.

**All log cabins are non-smoking/non-vaping units. Front porch areas and the upper deck of Cabin #2 all non-smoking areas.
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 2 portable fans in each unit. 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.
**DRUG-FREE ZONE: We strongly urge any cannabis users to go for a walk off of Resort property to use those products far away from our kids and other registered guests. This is VERY important as we have a zero tolerance rule in effect year-round about this!
Signage of this property being drug-free is posted inside of each cabin to serve as an added reminder.
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 with us upon arrival. It's our house.
Due to COVID-19 precautions NO ENTRY permitted into our house by Resort guests.
- CHECK-IN TIME: 4:00pm. No early check-in's permitted.
- And/or if you plan on arriving on site after dark please let us know. We usually call to let you know its ready!

On site, you will have full access to our private beach, extensive tiered waterfront decks with plenty of Adirondack chairs for numerous shaded seating options. There is a (4-person) paddle boat for you to use as you please and two (2) canoes. For the children there are 2 kids kayaks available to use (best for kids under12). Life vests provided are required to be worn during use of the Resorts water toys.
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. The Rainbow Ridge offers a full service Club House Restaurant which is open to the public. There are actually several golf courses to choose from on Manitoulin 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 golfing 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 be enticed to try some ice fishing and we encourage it. Bring your own auger and fishing equipment as we do not rent those types of recreational supplies here (yet). 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 at any time of year we aim to make your accommodations and stay at Bayside Resort unforgettable.
