We stayed at the Bayview for 3 nights and our cabin was horribly dirty. The bathtub and toilet were as brown as dirt. There were ants in the toaster. You couldn't even see out the filthy windows of the cabin. The corners of the rooms were thick with cobwebs. The dumpsters outside were overflowing with trash. The mattresses must be... More

My family stayed at this resort in early September and was very disappointed. We knew ahead of time that this place had a bar and restaurant and this was one of the reasons why we decided to stay at this resort. It was very obvious that the bar/restaurant was where all the attention went and that the cabins and guests... More

We had a wonderful stay at Bay View Lodge. Clean cabins with a fantastic view of beautiful Lake Vermilion. Food was excellent and well worth the wait not to mention the atmosphere of the tiki bar/deck over looking the lake.

I’ve come up to Bay View two summers in a row now to celebrate my birthday. Last year, I was also recovering from a pretty nasty divorce, and a trip to Bay View Lodge was just what the doctor ordered. Anyone who has been through the Big D, or had a troubled time in their life, should be required to... More

During the day it's peaceful with great fishing. By night they have amazing bands that everyone will enjoy with entertaining fun staff and some of the best food I have ever tasted. The cabins are cozy and clean making you never want to leave. I'm counting down the days until I can return to the wonderful place known as Bay... More

The atmosphere at Bay View is like no other on Lake Vermilion. With the recent renovations, the cabins were clean and inviting. The tiki bar is right off the water on huge three tier deck where every seat offers a view of the lake. The food was delicious and the staff is friendly, accommodating and at times very entertaining. Highly... More

This resort and restaurant is always our favorite Lake Vermilion stop. Either by car, boat or limousine, the trip over has always been the result of a fabulous day at the tiki bar or night out to enjoy a great dinner. The aroma from outdoor wood smoker preparing their "one of a kind" fabulous ribs is enough to draw anyone... More
