“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

My two buddies and I took a motorcycle trip to Yellowknife this spring and stayed at Bayside. It was the nicest place we stayed on the whole ride from California. We stayed in the cabin by the water it worked perfectly for us. The gourmet breakfast that we ordered off the restaurant menu was nearly worth the cost of the stay. John and Deb run a great B & B and Restaurant.

My wife and I visited Yellowknife and stayed at the Bayside B&B. We had a very nice experience. Our room was the ensuite including bathroom and shower (Willows). Very clean and nice. The bathroom was new and fresh. We enjoyed meeting John and Deb, the hosts, who were very helpful and friendly. This was a great place to catch the aurora, because it is right on the lake (Great Slave), and we could see if the aurora was up from their common room on the second floor, and then gear up and go out on the lake with our camera equipment in the middle of the night. Then we let ourselves back in when we were finished. Also, very convenient to shops and restaurants in Old Town. The attached Dancing Moose cafe was very good too, and the breakfasts were wonderful. Can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Willows was good with ensuite bathroom.

Great view of the auroras and prime location. The breakfast was great in the morning as well, a lot to choose from. The owner was very accommodating and even let us borrow their tripod to take pictures. The beds were not very comfortable though and there is not much privacy because the walls are paper thin.

Room Tip: Don't go expecting 5 star rooms and comfort, but the hospitality and and location is worth it!

I had the pleasure of spending a week at the Bayside during the spring equinox this year and I'm sending this note to express my thanks & appreciation to all the staff. I was travelling solo and was made to feel very welcome. Giselle and Carole went out of their way to attend to the needs of all their guests, and the B&B tself, in a very friendly and cordial manner. They are true service providers. I have an orthopedic bed at home and I had some concerns about sleeping in any other bed. I had no problem at all sleeping in the 'Midnight Sun'. i was lucky to be able to view the aurora for several nights right from the balcony. Their location right on the bay is far enough away from the city lights to affrord a great view. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. A very clean and comfortable place to stay with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Keep up the good work!!

Our group with six persons stayed at Bayside B&B for four nights, the location of Bayside is the better place to view Aurora in town, and we can saw Aurora just walk out to the gardens.
And, the breakfast is excellent.
Bayside B&B is our sweet home, without your help and kindness; we can’t have such a wonderful Aurora
Thank you so much John & Debbie.

Myself and a friend stayed in this charming place while visiting Yellowknife for a couple of days.
John and the rest of the staff made us feel very welcome from the getgo.

There is a very friendly laidback atmosphere created in both the B&B and the cafe - if they could bottle how to create this ,they would make a fortune!


The room was clean, warm, and suitable for all our needs. There was also a guest area for watching TV, making Tea/coffee and basically mixing with fellow guests. This area also has an outdoor balcony which is ideal for watching the Northern Lights at night.
We happen to share the experience with three very nice Signapore students, even more excited than ourselves to be witnessing the Aurora.

The food served in the cafe was plentiful, you wont leave hungry. It surprised us even more so when told breakfast didnt finish until 2PM for its B&B guests.
Very thoughtful when they know the guests are not getting to bed until late into the hours.

John was able to guide us on what Yellowknife had to offer its tourists, and also give an insight as to how the locals live which was most interesting. I am grateful to John and Co for the experience they were able to provide us with, its a place I think very fondly of.
Thanks again.

We liked the food of the restaurant and the very friendly atmosphere on the B&B. Rooms are quite comfortable. We stayed on a cabin outside - the amenities are ... rustic and limited. However, it was really quiet and the beds were comfortable. We really liked the common living room with a very nice view on the lake : a perfect spot to watch the Northern Lights!!
It was a very friendly place where it was not hard to feel like home. I would absolutely go back to the Bayside B&B next time I visit Yellowknife!

Room Tip: I would think that our room (the cosy room - cabin outside the building) was probably not the best o...
