We had the chance to Tap into Maple with a Maple Infused Stay at the Bayview Wildwood Resort with our family and let me tell you… FUN!
The Bayview Wildwood Resort is a great place to visit with your family in all seasons. Located in the lakeside village of Port Stanton, The Bayview Wildwood Resort welcomes families and has for over 110 years!
Let me just start by saying that my family was super excited to start our weekend Tap into Maple adventure at the Bayview Wildwood Resort. We were all ready for a full weekend of amazing Maple Goodness filled with visits to the Springwater Harvest Festival and Shaw’s Pancake House and Maple Syrup Bush!
The Bayview Wildwood Resort
Checking in to the Bayview Wildwood Resort was a breeze and the young lady at the front desk was super knowledgeable and helpful. So polite and friendly. The kids waited in the car with Daddy though, as they were so excited they may have scared the lady at the front desk. They were literally vibrating.
Once we checked in, we headed to our room to get the kids settled. Like I said, they were vibrating with excitement so it was time for them to take a deep breath and CALM DOWN.
We stayed at the Walton House Suites, and were so happy with the room. The suite we stayed in had two bedrooms, a large Jacuzzi tub, a fireplace, a seating area and a large comfy couch. Did I mention the view from the large windows and door that lead out the large balcony overlooking Sparrow Lake? It was beautiful! It was love at first sight.
The fact that there was a separate bedroom for the kids, was fantastic. It makes family travel much easier when the kids have their own space to sleep and relax in. The kids were so excited that they got their own room, that they started setting up their stuff immediately. Let’s be honest, hubby and I were happy they had their own room too. I love my children, but bedtime is my quiet time and sleeping with my 6 and 3 year old…. not ideal. So the fact that the Bayview Wildwood Resort provides these kinds of suites, makes travel with your family easier.
The suites are cozy and have an amazing “home like” feel with the sitting area and the inviting fireplace. They were also quite well kept, and the staff was excellent and diligent about ensuring they stayed that way.
The fireplace was such a nice touch to the room. Lighting a fire and playing board games the first night was just so much fun. In fact it was down right romantical in a family board game with monkies flying into trees kind of way…. if that can be considered romantical. (Which it can with a fire place… especially the one we had in our room!)
Dining at Echo’s Lounge
We enjoyed 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners at Echo’s Lounge and we couldn’t have been more pleased. The experience was phenomenal and the kids were incredibly happy! When we went for dinner the first night, the kids were excited to get all dressed up in their finest. They even took a cute selfie.

Echo’s Dining Lounge offers a beautiful panoramic view of Sparrow lake and we were taken aback with just how beautiful the lounge was! It would be a beautiful venue for a wedding.
The staff was excellent as well and fantastic with the kids. The kids had a great time talking to them and even got to help them do some small tasks around the dining room. They were super patient with my kids when they were incredibly excited, but also on Saturday night when they were grumpy and tired.
The food was beyond amazing!
Breakfast, for both the days we were there, was offered buffet style. The spread was amazing. Both days, breakfast offered different items to choose from too! There were hot items like pancakes, french toast and bacon just to name a few. Cold items like yogurt, cereal and fruit were also offered. The kids had a blast getting to pick what they wanted, and they loaded their plates and tried a little bit of everything. I enjoyed everything I tried, which was pretty much everything offered, and we headed back to our suite after breakfast feeling beyond satisfied.
Dinners at Echo’s Dining Lounge are full service and provide up to four beautiful entrees to choose from. There are always a choice of two to three different appetizers and an amazing offering of mouth watering desserts all made ON-SITE! You heard me, the Bayview Wildwood Resort has an on-site bakery. I think I could live there.
We loved our meals and again, headed back to our suite full and happy.
There is lots offered for entertainment at the Bayview Wildwood Resort! Even in the awkward “spring/winter” mash up weather we have been having. This “Sprinter” didn’t get in the way of some awesome fun at the Resort and we took advantage of many of the different on-site amenities.
In Room Board Games
After our dinner the first night, we headed to the front desk to borrow some board games. The selection of board games they have is extensive and includes many recent and older games as well as games for many different age ranges. Little man and I actually played one of them for a few minutes at the front desk with the lady to test it out to make sure that it was the right one for us before bringing it back to our room to play in front of the fireplace with Daddy and Baby Girl.
In Room Free Movies
On Saturday morning, the kids woke up early so before going down to breakfast, we were able to watch one of the free movies offered in our room. The Bayview Wildwood offers are selection of family friendly movies during the day, that can be enjoyed in your room! The schedule can be picked up at the front desk. In the evening, they also offer a few great movies for the older kids.
The indoor pool and hot tub were fantastic. The kids had a great time swimming with us before dinner Saturday night and what better way to tire them out than to take them swimming! The pool was large and clean. There were pool noodles and tons of clean towels. I also quite enjoyed the fact that there were change rooms so I didn’t have to come and go in my wet clothes. We all swam until our hearts were content. May I also mention the kids slept like angels that night?
The Games Room and Fitness Room
We didn’t have a lot of time to go and try these out, as we were super busy doing other great stuff too, but I did go scope them out and they looked like a whole lot of fun. The games room would be great for a rainy day and of course the fitness room is great to be able to workout!
Tap Into Maple with the Bayview Wildwood Resort
Not only did we have a great time at the Bayview Wildwood Resort, on our wonderful Tap into Maple weekend, but we also got to visit the 24th Annual Sweetwater Harvest Festival at Wye Marsh and Shaw’s Pancake House and Maple Syrup Bush for some amazing pancakes made by Teri Lynn Shaw, herself! This is how we Tap into Maple!
All in all we had a wonderful weekend full of amazing food, delicious maple treats, great service and so many memories for my family! The Bayview Wildwood Resort comes highly Ninjamommers recommended!
