Noshing through the Weekend at Echo’s Dining Lounge
19 Mar 2018
We dined well while staying at Bayview Wildwood Resort. Echo’s Dining Lounge provided an intimate dining experience, with a warm atmosphere, and a panoramic view of Sparrow Lake. Everything you would come to expect from a resort in Ontario’s Lake Country.
Breakfast and dinners are included in the cost of your stay. Lunches are an extra cost.
For those who like a drink with or after their meal, there is a full bar offering spirits, beer, wine, cocktails, liqueurs, coolers, and hot alcoholic drinks. All bar purchases are an extra cost.

Saturday Lunch at R Cottage
For lunch on Saturday, we went to R Cottage in Washago. The food is amazing! If you are staying at Bayview Wildwood Resort, want to eat somewhere other than Echo’s Dining Lounge for lunch, I highly recommend the 15 minute drive to R Cottage. It’s a dining experience you will never forget.

Two Thumbs Up for Echo’s Dining Lounge!
We were all completely satisfied with the quality of food at each meal, and the service from the wait staff was amazing. The kitchen and wait staff went over and above to ensure the picky eaters in our family were happy with our meals, and customized / substituted when requested.
We ate well, and had a great view of Sparrow Lake. What more could you ask for?
Be sure to finish off your dinners with a decadent chocolate or butterscotch sundae.
