Bayview Wildwood Resort

There’s good reason families who visit Bayview Wildwood Resort turn it into an annual tradition. Bayview Wildwood Resort is a classic, all-inclusive, four-season, lakeside resort that has been welcoming generations for over 100 years. It’s a true Muskoka institution. 

Located on the shores of Sparrow Lake, northwest of Orillia and south of Gravenhurst, Bayview is around a 90 minute drive north of Toronto. The closest community is the town of Port Stanton, just 10 km west of Highway 11. Connected to the historic Trent Severn Waterway, Sparrow Lake is pristine and shallow, with a rocky and forested shoreline and a healthy population of fish species, like bass, northern pike, walleye and muskie. Bayview Wildwood Resort is nestled at the south end of the lake. 

A wide range of accommodation styles, activities and packages allow guests the flexibility to create the perfect getaway, from fun-filled family vacations to a relaxing couples’ weekend retreat. Select from resort rooms or suites, with features like minibars, fireplaces, balconies and hot tubs. All units offer a fantastic lake view. For larger groups, two- to five-bedroom lakeside cottages include full kitchens, living and dining rooms and bathrooms, along with relaxing porches and outdoor grills. 

If meals are included in your chosen getaway package, breakfast, lunch and dinners are served in The Echo’s Dining Lounge, an elegant restaurant and entertainment facility with lovely views overlooking the lake. The menu changes seasonally and can be modified with vegetarian and gluten-free options. A kids menu is also included with each meal. 

In addition to comfortable lakeside accommodations and full service dining, Bayview features an array of facilities, recreational programs and outdoor activities sure to keep everyone in the family engaged and entertained.
