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.

Our great stay began with talking to Brad on the night desk before we arrived. Matt, the hotel manager was very accommodating to our needs. Ed at the desk in the morning helped with reservations. The hotel is set back from the road via a tree-lined driveway. We had a lovely view of the harbor and a small patio. Breakfast was excellent, with a choice of hot options, different each of our 3 days, as well as a very good buffet. Sheets were extremely soft. Bathroom heater and night-light were among the appreciated amenities. There were binoculars, walking sticks, camera accessories and other items available to borrow. Our pet-friendly room seemed the same as the other rooms except absence of carpeting. A highly recommended small hotel. Read less

We stayed two nights recently at The Bayview. We got a room with an ocean view and it was spectacular! In the mornings, we could see the sunrise through the trees and over the ocean from our room.

The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly here. It isn't a large hotel so there were never crowds to fight and it remained very quiet. This is a perfect hotel for a romantic vacation. The location is within striking distance of downtown and Acadia National Park. We went to both with ease. I would most definitely recommend this hotel! Read less

They provided maps, directions, suggestions for food, etc. Read less
