I used TripAdvisor for all my research of where to stay on my 3 week vacation which included Bar Harbor. First of all I love TripAdvisor. What a useful traveling tool. Because of the Bayview's positive reviews, this is where I chose my 4 day stay. I called 5 other places that had excellent reviews but I knew even over... More

We stayed for three nights in the middle of October. Our package included the Acadia Nature Cruise, Tour of Acadia, dinner for two at The Chartroom, and a packed lunch to eat at our leisure. Everything was taken care of by the wonderful staff-especially Jocelyn! We appreciated the free shuttle service and all of the other amenities. Bar Harbor and... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel 10/5-10/7/14 and really enjoyed the view from our second floor room. The room, however seemed spartan and under-decorated with only one picture on the wall and not a lot of amenities in the bathroom. The breakfast was really good, too, but overall, we feel that the inn was overpriced. We will probably... More

We stayed for two nights in September and enjoyed every minute. We were lucky enough to get a third floor room but the lower floors have a terrific view also. The top floor has the best views over the trees, etc. but has no deck top so if it rains......! But, it did not rain while we were there so... More

I was expecting luxury hotel, amazing bathroom, pristine rooms etc, however, it is a very nice hotel. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Our view of the bay in the morning and at sunset was worth it! The cookies at check in- love it. I would expect a 4star hotel to have nicer shampoos etc. however it was fine. The... More

Just returned from a four day stay and what a wonderful hotel! The location is ideal! Away from the activity of town, but close enough to get to everything quickly. The hotel shuttle was so convenient! The magnificent view if the bay is right outside the full glass patio doors and the rooms are immaculate, beautiful and stocked with every... More

Thank you! I was so happy to read this review! I think it makes two in a row that like the decor! When I get the "dated" comments I get so frustrated. We are not dated by age (except me...) we are dated by choice! It is the look we want and it is who we are so thank you,... More

My husband and I spent two glorious days here exploring Acadia Natl Park and Bar Harbor. Our huge room (309) was right above the water with balcony, microwave, and refrigerator. Comfy bed, lounge chair, side table with two chairs and dressing table/ desk. A variety of Home baked cookies are available daily for snacks and an on sight bar is... More

Thank you and hooray! I personally am so glad you liked the room! There are so many different "tastes" in travel and I really like it when someone agrees with ours! Speaking of tastes, I think everyone likes the food. Those of us that work here really like the food but it is the guest’s opinion that matters and I... More

We are a party of 15, ages 3 to 69, who visited the Bayview in July for four wonderful nights. We had 3 townhouses which provided ample room for everyone. The staff was extremely accommodating and very knowledgeable about the area. Jocelyn, Amelia and the rest of the staff make this inn top notch! Stay here on your visit to... More

Thank you! I think it speaks volumes when someone takes the time to write a review several months after traveling. I get back into the "old routine" and things become a distant memory so I am impressed and pleased that you took the time to write this! We all agree that family reunions are so much fun and the townhouses... More

This might be the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. Spotless. We had a two bedroom condo with a Livingroom, kitchen and dining room. Very reasonable priced too. The front desk staff is so kind and accommodating. The location is quiet but close to everything. And the breakfast? Terrific! Homemade granola, wow. Will have to buy some to take... More

Thank you! Our housekeeping staff does a wonderful job and they do take great pride in their work. I think they are sometimes the “unsung” heroes but lately more people have commented on the cleanliness and I am glad they do! We all know how hard they work and really appreciate their efforts. It takes a team effort to make... More
