We had stayed at the Bayview a few years back and returned for another visit this past Memorial Day weekend. We were not disappointed. It is a wonderful place to stay. The staff treat you like family. The rooms had been remodeled since our last stay and are very comfortable. I wanted to take the bed home with me as... More

My husband and I along with our friends recently spent the Memorial Day week-end at the Bayview to celebrate our anniversary. Our experience was wonderful. Our king sized room was on the third floor and the view from our balcony can only be described as "million dollar view". The room was very clean and bright. We even had champagne delivered... More

I just returned from a 3 night stay at a 3 bedroom townhouse at the Bayview. After reading spectacular reviews here, i have to say I was quite disappointed. The three bedroom townhouse was truly a very good deal - 3 separate bedrooms, one of which (the loft) had two double beds and two trundle beds. It had a reasonably... More

My husband and I chose the Bayview for our anniversary getaway based on the reviews we read on this site. The customer service was excellent from the phone call for booking to the moment we loaded our car to go to the airport. When we booked the hotel they didn't have a king room available, so we booked a double... More

We got married on Sunday October 12, 2008 in Northeast Harbor, Maine and it was a destination wedding. We wanted a spectacular place for us to stay in Bar Harbor a few days before the wedding and the wedding night, as well as, an excellent place for many of our guests to stay too. We had the best experience at... More

Four of us just came back from a wonderful three nights stay at The Bayview. We stayed in the regular hotel room on the first floor, with two double beds and a pull out sofa. The room was very spacious, with a fridge and balcony. Everything in the bathroom was sparkling clean, with basic toiletries like shampoo, lotion, shower cap,... More

Husband and I have just returned from a 3 day stay at the Bayview. It was most comfortable and enjoyable. Yes, the pool is tiny and it does not have a fridge in the room, but our room was very comfortable (especially the bed), clean and tastefully furnished. Our room was on the top floor and had a lovely view... More

My wife and I spent three nights in Bar Harbor, athe the Bayview Hotel, along with some friends the third week of September. We had read good things about the hotel, but we were totally blown away by how great the location was and how courteous, friendly and informative the staff were.

My wife and I recently visited Bar Harbor and stayed at the Bayview. Immaculate lawns, great views, large clean rooms, delicious breakfast with quite a variety, out of this world afternoon cookies and a very professional, yet friendly staff. We highly recommend the Bayview. Mike and Sue
