A Hallmark Winter Getaway at Bayview Wildwood Resort

A Hallmark Winter Getaway at Bayview Wildwood Resort

Set on the shores of beautiful Sparrow Lake in Port Stanton, Ontario, Bayview Wildwood Resort is the perfect place to bring your loved ones together to experience an idyllic Canadian winter vacation.

Bayview Wildwood Resort has remained a getaway staple for over 125 years, hosting generations of families who return year after year to experience the thrill of the great outdoors combined with the coziness of the resort’s lakeside accommodations. Whether you’re bringing the whole family along for some classic winter activities, or, looking for a romantic getaway at the cabin with your significant other, Bayview Wildwood Resort is the perfect place to reconnect with your loved ones amongst Ontario’s natural beauty.

Bayview Wildwood is unique in its historic commitment to memorable family experiences. Jason Stanton, the resort’s General Manager, describes Bayview’s legacy as part of the thing that makes Port Stanton so special for so many; “our guests always tell us about old memories and some of their favourite times at the resort. Their stories always include times they won one of our competitions such as our hockey games, card games, or trivia challenges. Many also fondly remember how magical the winter horse-drawn carriage rides were when they were children.” It’s these memories, he notes, and the ability for these guests to now witness their children and grandchildren experiencing the same activities, that make Bayview Wildwood an annual gathering place for so many.


Guests can choose from resort style guestrooms, two-bedroom suites, and spacious 1 to 5-bedroom cottages during their stay, all just steps away from remarkable lakefront views. The resort also offers all-day dining, an indoor pool, and access to the best winter activities; skating, snowshoeing, tobogganing, cross-country skiing, and even lakeside bonfires are complimentary with your stay!

For the little ones, fun children’s activities await. From build-a-bear workshops to scavenger hunts, magic shows, and horse-drawn wagon rides, your kids will be entertained from the moment they walk through the door. Don’t forget to check out the indoor playground and games room too.

For the adults, head to the Echo’s Dining Lounge for cocktail classes, late-night dancing, live music, and of course, the delectable flavours. Offering full-service dining, Echo’s Dining Lounge brings mouthwatering breakfast buffets, scrumptious luncheons, and dinner al la carte, all prepared fresh with seasonal ingredients.

Looking to book a special event? They can do that too, from scenic weddings to corporate retreats.
