My family and I have stayed in Cottage F. The place was clean and tidy and plenty of space for all of us. We particularly loved the sandy beach area. Having 2 small kids, they spent the entire day playing on the beach and wading in the water. I believe this is the only place on the lake with a sandy beach besides the State Park and Three Mile Point. Jen and the staff are polite and there to take care of your every need. Definitely will stay again in the future.

Stayed in Cottage J for one night over Columbus Day weekend. I actually booked Cottage E but was moved to Cottage J for a lake view since it was available, which I much appreciated. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The deck had a great view of the lake. The cottage was exactly like the pictures provided on the website, so you won't have any surprises. We did not have much time to utilize the other amenities provided as we were only in town for 1 night. We were warned while checking in that a few lady bugs were found in the condo when it was cleaned before our arrival. We were told to alert the office if they became a problem during our stay. We did see 2 lady bugs in the cottage, but they did not bother us at all. You are in the woods on a lake, some bugs will happen regardless of how clean the cottage is kept. The front desk staff was nice and helpful. They recommended a place in town to eat breakfast, and it was quite good (Doubleday Cafe). There is also a large, friendly dog behind the desk who loves visitors, so make sure to say hi before you leave.

Last minute get away for colombus weekend. Was able to get 2 bedroom cottage for reasonable rate. Apple & pumpkin picking, wine tasting, nearby. Cottage was rural but clean. Great views canoe or kayak free. Son had great time fishing, caught a pike. Staff was friendly. Relaxing and quiet 3 day weekend enjoying outstanding foliage.

We went there for a getaway for our anniversary, & everyone was so friendly & helpful. They went above & beyond to help us out! We stayed in Cottage I, which was absolutely perfect & the view from the deck was incredible! We think we're going to make this an annual trip for our anniversary.

When choosing a hotel that is not one of the big chains, I have not always had a good experience. But the Bayside is very likely one of the best places we have ever stayed. Chain hotel or not. The clean rooms and the lake view were superb. The game room and the other amenities give this hotel a very very family friendly and cozy atmosphere. We will definitely stay there again.

In Cooperstown, the Bayside is clearly a "home run!"

We just returned home from a wonderful stay at the Bayside Inn and Marina. We stayed in Cottage L and it was everything we hoped for. (The pictures are a true representation of the cottage and lake). The views are beautiful and we had our coffee down at the gazebo every morning. The canoes and kayaks were at our disposal and we took full advantage of them. The cottage was very clean and equipped with everything we needed for a week's stay. I highly recommend this Inn and we hope to come back again--we would love to visit in the fall and winter to see the beautiful views of the lake in various seasons.
