We stayed in a motel room on the second floor, so a bit of a lug with our luggage up the stairs, but a wonderful view through the trees to the water. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the rocker with a glass of wine. Room was very nicely decorated with nautical down east colours, very clean with old fashioned... More

Great little motel made our trip through mid coast Maine wonderful. A special thanks to Jane who gave us excellent ideas for things to see and sites to visit. A true gem. The Bay Leaf made me aware of the true Maine experience.

Really enjoyed our 7 day stay at bay leaf. The trees block some of the view of the water and the breakfast is continental (unlike an actual bed and breakfast) but the rooms were cozy, it's in a convenient location right off of hwy 1, and Jane (the manager/owner) was very helpful in helping us find the best restaurants and...

My room was cozy with single and double bed, microwave, mini fridge the décor was coastal theme and very comfortable. The motel has nice porch with chairs just outside your room for relaxing. WiFi in the room was very... More

We stayed in the motel part of the property and we knew when booking that our room was going to be a bit on the small side for us, but shoot, road trips are supposed to be a bit more rustic! We had planned to have 2 people sleep in the full, 1 on the twin and 1 on the... More

Called the front desk and were informed due to the fact the motel was full and everyone must be showering at the same time, tanks unable to hanlde all... More

The Bay Leaf Cottages and Bistro are right off Rt 1. The owner was very nice and helpful. When we got to the cottage, it was much smaller than I expected. It was also extremely warm inside the little cottage. Thankfully there was an air conditioner. It was rated to sleep 4 people, but no one would be able to... More

BayLeafCottages, Owner at Bay Leaf Cottages & Bistro, responded to this review

Thank you for your valuable feedback. We always wonder whether or not to remove the sofa in that cottage and replace with a club chair - that may be better space utilization. We will, upon your suggestion, change the mattresses from those which came with the bunk beds to something more substantial. More

Have you ever think what paradise could look like? Well, my answer to this question should´t be far from this place. Thank you for creating such a nice and cozy place. I spent only one night but should have stayed longer. Peace, nice weather (june 21, 2014), nice breakfast, close to Camden (10 min by car). My kids (7&8 y.o.)... More

My wife and I took vacation here with our 6 month old. We were blown away. The value was incredible especially since we booked through Amazon Local. We took full advantage of the filling breakfast, the free ferry, and Jane at the front desk who was by far the greatest asset the place had to offer. Her kindness and knowledge... More

My husband and I along with another couple stayed at Bay Leaf a couple of weeks ago and had I written the review at the time, it might be more strongly-worded. We purchased a Living Social voucher for a two-night stay and we were really looking forward to our stay as we traveled up the Maine coast. The voucher included... More

We are a very dog-friendly lodging property but we have rules like all hotels. These rules are posted on our website and were also referred to in the Living Social promotion which you purchased (for sure it indicated to check our website for the pet rules). These rules include: 1. Walking the dog in a designated walking area along with... More
