We love Sparrow Lake, and Bayview offers us a great spot on the Lake, terrific meals, and entertainment for all the kids and the adults as well. With 2 heated pools, you can't even blame the weather for ruining your plans. (19 years and counting)

We've been coming to Bayview Wildwood for about 20 years and missed only a few. Bayview is one of the few remaining traditional Ontario family resorts. By that I mean, you can easily find a new hotel on the water, or a huge complex on a lake, but it is almost impossible to find a low-key, relaxed family resort, where...

Such a nice place to travel with family, and the special packages for rates with children certainly help. We regularly have 4 generations represented, and meet others who have return (many for more than 20 years). Sparrow Lake is beautiful, and this is the last of the all-inclusive resorts. Thanks for the memories.

Hello James K, Thank you for taking the time to review your corporate stay at our resort. Our large five-bedroom houses, that hold 11 to 14 people, do have a higher rental rate per night - especially in the summer season. That rate includes accommodation, nightly entertainment, recreation programs and use of facilities. Perhaps your group did not fully maximize...
