We largely chose this B&B for convenience of staying with a young (age 6) child. We wanted to be able to view aurora from our accommodation since it was impractical to do all night tours in the cold with a youngster in tow. The good: location was very good - right on the lakeside and probably as good as we... More

Bayside is best described as "adequate" - nothing terribly outstanding, nothing terribly awful. Its location has been said to be one of its stronger points, as it's right in front of the lake. However, one thing to bear in mind is that it's actually somewhat problematic for aurora viewing. The reason is that there's a building to the left of... More

I’ve recently stayed at the Bayside B&B for many days and I must add some negative comments : • It is not true that both rooms upstairs share a common bathroom in the hallway… That restroom is also shared with the Dancing Moose Cafe downstairs as its second restroom. It is also used (for its shower) by the occupants of... More

There are many advantages to staying at Bayside B&B, I'm going to mention 3. The first is that you're going to meet some of the friendliest and kindest staff you'll meet in Yellowknife, while the high demand can stress the place sometimes and make things run slowly, everyone working there is as helpful as possible and very friendly and polite...

We booked this B&B based on good reviews from TA and would stay there if we ever visit Yellowknife again.The owners John and Debbie are very friendly. The best part about the B&B is its cafe (The Dancing Moose Cafe) located down stairs. Not only it's wonderfully convenient in the winter months, the delicious food from the cafe is probably... More

We stayed at the B&B for 5 nights over Christmas holiday and we had a great time there. We were in the cozy cabin, which is seperare from the main building. We enjoyed the cabin as it provided us the privacy and peacefulness we prefer. The cabin has everything except shower so we need to go to the main building... More

I stayed here with a girlfriend for 5 nights to view the Northern Lights. For the first 2 nights we stayed in the Northern Skies room - the best room in the house, as far as I am concerned. The room has 2 entrances, one at the front of the building and one private entrance at the back. It also... More

The B&B is located lake-side with beautiful views. The hosts, John and Debbie are wonderful and welcoming. We stayed for 4 days and had a great time watching aurora every night. We even saw beautiful display of the aurora off the sun-room deck! The food at the Dancing Moose cafe is great. The staff there are very pleasant. Across the... More

Our family of 6 stayed (in three rooms) for the first week of September. Location was great - easy walk to town & local attractions, but most of all the view overlooking Great Slave Lake was outstanding - the back yard was a great location for aurora viewing - which we saw on 6 nights! Rooms are larger than they... More
