Bayview Hotel

Maine, New England

The hotel

If you’re going to stay in Bar Harbor, a waterfront pad is a must. Every room at The Bayview is set just 75 foot from the shore, with views over Frenchman’s Bay and the Atlantic, and a balcony to enjoy them from. But it’s not just your guestroom that benefits from the vista. You can take breakfast on the oceanfront terrace, tucking into homemade pastries, scones and muffins, and the ‘hot entrée of the day’. Or you could just take some time out on the lawn which sweeps straight down to the water’s edge (or to the stony beach when the tide’s out), perhaps with one of the freshly baked cookies prepared each day.

We loved our stay at the Bayview! The room was really big, so great for us and our almost 2 year old. We loved sitting on the balcony to watch the boats and birds.

We loved our time at this lovely gem of a hotel outside of the high season crowds of Bar Harbor downtown. It is a dog friendly place with separate entry and exit for these rooms. The sunrise from the room balcony/decks was gorgeous. The rooms are recently renovated and clean, daily room service, and super friendly staff. Efficient and delicious… Read more

The sunrise from the room balcony/decks was gorgeous. The rooms are recently renovated and clean, daily room service, and super friendly staff. Efficient and delicious grab and go breakfasts on your way out the door to hike/explore. (yogurt, granola, muffins, OJ, coffee) Really loved it. We will return! Read less

Spent 4 nights here -- spacious room, good continental breakfast each morning; coffee available at 5:30 AM; shuttle service between 3 - 10PM daily. Staff overly accommodating and full "maid service" daily! One oddity -- no phone in rooms? Oh well .. guess it's that "age." Pricey .. but probably "normal" for Bar Harbor?

This was our first time visiting Bar Harbor and the Bayview Hotel added to my family’s enjoyment of our trip. The hotel was clean, beautiful, and provided peaceful views of the water. The quick breakfast included amazing pastries that kept us full each morning. The staff were wonderful, especially Matt and Greg, who were always accommodating and so pleasant. I felt that they genuinely wanted their guests to have a great experience. This hotel is within a one-mile walking distance from Bar Harbor, which we took advantage of, along with the super convenient shuttle service provided through the hotel. We highly recommend this hotel! Read less
