“A home away from home!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We have a small cabin without electricity or running water on a small lake about 30 minutes from Parry Sound. Each Spring when we open up and each Fall when we close up the cabin, we stay at the Bayside Inn. I know it has become a favourite of many because we run into the same people there all the time.

This historic home has been thoroughly renovated and updated. The rooms are comfortable with beautiful furnishings, bedding and towels. The dining room on the main floor is cozy where you can have your continental breakfast or a hot omelette, French toast or eggs.

The owner, Jeff is a laid back guy who welcomes you and from the first makes you feel at home.

If you are a train buff, it is right near the water and under and trail bridge. From many of the rooms you can watch the freight trains head to the west with sometimes over 100 cars!

One last thing...it is reasonable! Give it a try!

Room Tip: Like I said, if you are a train buff, ask for a room where you can watch the trains...if not ask for...

Stayed here on the weekend for a cross country ski tour. Large comfortable room in a converted old house, updated will all the latest amenities. Has the personal touch of a B&B but offers the traveller the independence you get in a hotel. Excellent cooked to order breakfast with home made jams and high quality cut fruit (even in February!). Very comfortable bed. Friendly owner. Great location right near downtown and the waterfront. Will definitely be back in the future.

Great went for a family weekend and could not have picked a better place. Will be staying there again hopefully if back in Parry Sound. The women that works there is the nicest and friendliest person ever. She made the whole experience wonderful. My kids even loved it. I would love to come back in the summer. Thank you

Bayside Inn was only an overnight stop for us and our friends. Our rooms on the ground floor were large and comfy. Ours even had a spa bath, but no time to use it unfortunately! Everything was spotlessly clean and breakfast ample and tasty. I enjoyed the sound of the train rumbling over the bridge nearby - a lovely sound for guests from Australia - we have so few trains and certainly none where we live. Very handy to the cruise boat for Parry Sound - we could walk there in 5 minutes.

We spent one night at this delightful inn, which exceeded our expectations for the very reasonable price. Overall the inn is very well kept, spotlessly clean, and tastefully decorated. Its location is hard to beat, within very easy walking distance of both the harbour and the main street shops. It was wonderfully convenient for the Island Queen cruise (which we also thoroughly recommend...fantastic!)

Our room was on the ground floor at the back, and proved very comfortable. The only negative was the lack of a bedside table and reading lamp on one side of the bed, but this wasn't a huge inconvenience.

We opted for the continental breakfast, which was well presented and included ample choice. We particularly enjoyed the mixed fresh fruits and home-made marmalade. If we return to Parry Sound, this inn will be our first choice.

Had a one night stay in Mid September. The hotel is charming, close toe the harbour and the owner very friendly. The rooms were tastefully appointed - WiFi is available and bed supremely comfortable. Breakfast excellent. I would happily recommend this boutique hotel (12 rooms I think) to anyone travelling in the Parry Sound area.

We spent one night here which was thoroughly enjoyable. The Inn is located perfectly for the harbour (where we took a cruise in the evening). Our room was on the main floor and had everything needed for a comforatable stay. We enjoyed breakfast in the morning, which was very reasonably priced. There was just one thing that was a bit of a letdown - the view of the backyard from the bedroom. The gardens are neglected, which is very surprising considering the Inn itself is in beautiful condition.
