    Perfect spot for a Covid getaway
    The Bay Resort was perfect for our getaway. On the bay side of the peninsula, it was still just a short walk to restaurants and ice cream. The room was comfortable and bright, spotlessly clean and ready for us. Our view was of the bay, with a comfortable balcony with two chairs and a small table, perfect to watch the sunset and linger to watch the blue heron fishing near the dock in the evening shadows. Small, neat kitchenette, with room for restaurant leftovers, milk, OJ and sodas. Three burner stove, small oven and small microwave completed the kitchen. The bed were comfortable with sparkling white sheets and pristine blankets. It looks like there are various activities such as a pool, paddleboarding and bay tours during the summer, but in October all is quiet and not busy. I highly recommend the Bay Resort for a low key vacation during the off-season.

    Stayed at the property a few years ago and appreciated the new water sports and overall feel of the bay terrace.

    Mostly good
    The rooms are comfortable and the kitchenette is great to have, the staff is very friendly. The bay view rooms are wonderful. but... My feet turned black when I walked across the carpet,and you are charged a resort fee for the pool even when it's closed. That said, I would stay here again. It's a pretty nice place.

    The location was amazing. The bayside view is wonderful and you can sleep with the sliding door open if you are above ground floor and listen to the waves lapping in. There is a cute little beach and a dock. You can rent kayaks or paddle boards right on the premises though we brought our own and it was so convenient to leave it out so we could paddle out to the bay at any time.

    The Bayside is an unexpected surprise. It has a lovely sandy beach with paddle board and kayak rentals. There are also nice seating areas. The pool was very nice and the rooms were extremely clean and attractive.

    The room needed cleaning. Sand on the carpet and tiles. Things felt clammy and the outside tables and chairs were dirty. The area need sweeping or blown with a blower. However we did sit by the Bay Area on the Adirondack chairs and it was delightful.

    Nice Stay
    We were allowed to check in 2 hours early which we very much appreciated. The lady who checked us in was welcoming and friendly. We could see in the office how much the Bay Resort was doing to halt the spread of germs etc...again, appreciated. Our room was on the second floor, all the way at the end which meant although we had a poolside room, we did not have a balcony. We shared a walkway with the other 2 rooms at the end. I thought we were going to have a balcony when we requested poolside. No biggie. We did have two chairs outside our room but when I went to sit down I could see they were pretty dirty. The room was very clean, no problems there. We did not use the kitchen provided but I could see that that too, was immaculate. The a/c unit in our room was a bit noisy but not enough to ruin our stay. What I didn't like was the two double beds. Double beds are a bit small. They were however, comfortable. Since we were only there for 2 nights, there was no maid service provided. Again, no problem. There is a time that you can request fresh towels, etc. but we brought our own this time. What is especially nice about the Bay Resort is its quiet location. It is also just two short blocks from the beach so it is an easy walk. There was plenty of parking.

    The decor felt homey, not institutional. I appreciated having a balcony with a screen door, so we could get some fresh air. Really appreciated having a kitchenette. I enjoyed being on the bay -- the location was peaceful and quiet.
