I stayed in the northern skies room and was very happy with my stay. The room was clean and had everything you needed. It's on the lower level and being that it's in an older building, there is sound transference but pop in some ear plugs and you're good to go. There is a back door which lets you out on to a rear porch which faces the lake, so if you're lucky, you can see the lights right from your room.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The location is terrific as it's in Old Town Road where there are some great restaurants and shops you can visit close by and you have a great view of the frozen lake in the Winter. The rooms were very clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. There is also a lounge area where you can relax with some board games, cable television and coffee/tea. We were also given complimentary breakfast at the Dancing Moose Cafe. The food there was excellent! Finally, the owners were very accommodating and friendly. One evening, the circuit breaker went out and John had it fixed immediately. Would highly recommend Bayside BnB as your place to stay in Yellowknife

Definitely a special place to stay. Right on the water with a fire pit. We went up to Yellowknife for 3 night to experience the Summer Solstice (June 21) and were not disappointed. Location was super quiet and easy walking distance to many of the popular restaurants in Yellowknife. Included a gourmet breakfast at the Dancing Moose Café in the same building. Host was extremely nice and accommodating. Would highly recommend this place to travellers.

We spent 2 nights here. First night we were upstairs with a partial view of the bay. Rooms were clean but was a bit small with a common bathroom. Wasn’t a problem as there was only one other guest. There is a common room with tv, books, tv, fridge and coffee maker. This lead to a deck with a gorgeous view of the lake. The second night we chose to stay in the cabin. This was much more roomier and we were close to the water. The continental breakfast were in their restaurant downstairs where you could chose anything off their menu.

Bit shabby, excellent breakfasts, you are a bit away from town,although that’s not a problem,Yellowknife isn’t the greatest.... I found 3 days more than enough, depends on what you want to do. Staff friendly, and the B & B kept clean ,rooms on the small side.
