4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Sometimes you don't know what to expect the Bay leaf cottages were comfortable very clean and homey. We only stayed one night but it was a great place to stop and visit Camden on our way to Arcadia. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast very nice.

We chose this location for a girls weekend getaway. It is not often that a place fits the exact description of what you are expecting and this place exceeded expectations in all areas. We would highly recommend for any occasion and are eager to book our next getaway.

Lets start with the awesome, the breakfast was on point and delicious. It was fresh, and the coffee was excellent. It's a quiet place and very nice location to just relax and unwind. We had lobster vouchers and when we picked it up from the lobster place, it was fresh and very good (FYI: pick it up as soon as... More

I was very disappointed with the kitchenette in our cabin. There were only two SMALL pans and a lobster pot and the stove was ancient and kinda grimy. So if you're choosing this place because you plan on the convenience of cooking you're own meals in your cabin. Choose somewhere else. I wish I had.

"Kitchenettes" (note the "ette") are apartment cooking size for sure in these vintage Maine cottages. We offer several sizes of cottages and thus we have larger kitchens in many of the larger units. While I'm not sure which cottage you had, you could have asked our staff for additional pots/pans or any utensils you might need. Or, an upgrade to... More

The resort offered a nice mix of little cottages to rent or a small hotel complex with 8 to 10 rooms. There was free breakfast provided in the morning and their staff was super helpful. We got some insight on local places to go, shops to check out, and a great beach for our dog. The property also provided gas... More

Considering the cost we expect daily room service and clean towels. We stayed at four different motels while in Maine and all the others offered superior room quality and amenities. We cannot recommend this facility.

We offer our guests the OPTION to have daily room cleaning and exchange of towels. It states this in our welcome book as well as by each bed. We try to be both cost effective and environmentally conscious. We are not the only hotel to do this. Upon request we clean daily. And, we exchange towels daily for those guests... More

I imagine that travelers stayed in small roadside cottages like these before motels ("motor hotels") became commonplace. They're all over the Maine coast and we stayed in this one to see what they're like. First, what was absent in our cottage: television (no kidding) and heat (although a space heater did a good job everywhere but in the bathroom.) WiFi... More

This is what my husband described the cottage we rented at Bay Leaf. The cottage is situated very close to the woods. Hence, sleeping at night with the windows open in the summer days with night breeze and sounds from the insects give you the feeling of being outdoor. The cottage is really clean and quaint. My husband and children... More

We were looking forward to a nice little cabin getaway for part of our trip through Maine and were willing to pay what for us was a lot of money for the privilege. But what the heck, we were getting a cabin with a screened in porch in a nice setting directly across from the ocean so, we thought why... More

We enjoyed the coziness of this place. Beds were very comfortable and breakfast had much better choices than the usual continental type. We especially like the good pet acommodations. Many places don't want you to leave the pet alone in the room but have a breakfast buffet. This is the only one I have ever seen that actually has a... More
