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 Champlain Room’s oceanfront terrace, tucking into homemade pastries, scones and muffins, and the ‘hot entrée of the day’. You can swim with a view in the hillside pool, with glimpses of the bay below. 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 had a wonderful time. The small hotel has it all. The staff is wonderfully helpful and always ready to make certain our needs were met. The breakfast was great and the bar in the evening was very inviting, even though it was very small, yet very well stocked. Jane was like an old friend and very informational about the area. If we go back… Read more

If we go back to Maine, we will stay there for certain. We will highly recommend it to anyone we know going to Maine. Read less

Our stay at Bayview was fantastic! The Entire staff was so friendly and helpful! Our room was perfect; very comfortable and spacious but the view from the balcony was beautiful! We were less than a mile to all the shop, bars and restaurants! Fantastic vacation and would recommend this Inn!

This hotel has a terrific view from the rooms and from the lobby/breakfast area. The lobby and breakfast area have been renovated with updated furnishings, carpets, decor, etc. The breakfast was surprisingly good and the staff is super sweet.

Leading up to the trip, the staff at Bayview could not have been more accommodating or nice. We were traveling on a big family trip and needed 6 rooms last minute and they were fabulous.

Arriving at the hotel and see the views blew my expectations! It's so serene and beautiful! The hotel itself has all just been redone and it feels new and luxurious. The rooms are big and spacious, the views cannot be beat, and everyone gets a balcony overlooking the water! The dining area in the lobby for breakfast is also so pretty and comfortable. I would definitely recommend Bayview and would love to come back! Read less

We found the Bayview to be just right for our two days in Bar Harbor. Our room on the first floor was quiet, traditionally and comfortably appointed, and had that great view.

We found the Bayview to be just right for our two days in Bar Harbor. Our room on the first floor was quiet, traditionally and comfortably appointed, and had that great view. A nice sitting area in our room allowed us to face the water and relax with small bottle of sparkling wine purchased at the front desk, even though it was too rainy to enjoy our balcony. Breakfast both mornings was delicious, and served in a cheerful dining room. We had never visited Bar Harbor before and when we booked were a bit concerned about the hotel's distance from the center of town. However, the shuttle worked perfectly. We never had to wait more than five minutes for a ride to or from the hotel, and imagine the walk would have been a feasible one in better weather. Front desk, drivers, dining, and kitchen staff were all so friendly and helpful, and proximity to the park another bonus. Read less
