The Ashwood Inn in historic Bayfield, Ontario, is surrounded by some of the most beautiful and relaxing settings created by Mother Nature. Situated on Lake Huron, with one of the most celebrated private sandy swimming beaches on Ontario's West Coast, The Ashwood is designed to soothe, stimulate, and delight the senses. We take pride in delivering concierge-level personal services 24/7 and the finest deluxe amenities.

Located above the Bayfield River on the Bluewater Highway – Route 21 – The Ashwood Inn is within strolling distance of the renowned shops, restaurants, taverns, and heritage attractions of Bayfield (Est. 1832), with an easy drive to world-class shopping, golf, horseback riding, fishing, all-season recreational activities, and internationally-lauded live theatre.

Then again, you may not feel the need to leave. Our perch on The North Beach puts guests steps away from all water sports, including doing absolutely nothing – feet up in beach lounges as bright blue days melt into Lake Huron’s spectacular sunsets. Explore our 19 acres of unspoiled forest, lounge by the saltwater pool, enjoy sophisticated cocktails and locally-sourced, farm-to-table cuisine in our local restaurants. Many summer nights feature Southwest Ontario’s best live contemporary music. Visit our events page for more details.

The Ashwood is named for beloved ash trees harvested on the property in 2014, which now play a central role in the lodge’s design.
