St. Mark's Masonic Lodge is an historic Mason's Lodge located at the corner of Queen Street and Grant Street in Baddeck, Nova Scotia. The Lodge was constructed in 1898 to replace a lodge that had been destroyed in a fire.[1]

The lodge was built in the style of a church, with a central square tower on the front gable and a square tower on the rear elevation. The building features elaborate architectural and Masonic details, however many of these have been covered with modern vinyl siding; Masonic symbols are visible on the tower and transom.[1]

The Municipality of the County of Victoria declared the lodge as a municipal heritage property in 2007.[1][2]
