This is a great little spot in Bar Harbor, not at all far from the bustle of downtown. With a great view of the bay, the staff is SUPER friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was also excellent. The decor in the townhouses might remind you a little bit of grandma's house, but it adds to the overall cozy charm. I would definitely stay here again.

We booked two family rooms at the Bayview for two nights in June 2008. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient and our rooms were very clean and nice. Each room had a balcony overlooking the water and a pull out sofa. The hotel provides free shuttle service into Bar Harbor which was great, and everyone we met at the hotel was kind and ready to assist in any capacity you could think of. Breakfast was well presented and offered plenty of options including hot oatmeal, cold cereal, assorted muffins and breads, a hot entree, yogurt and fresh fruit. There was always hot coffee, hot chocolate and tea available. Our rooms were $148 a night, and seemed like a bargain. We very much enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at the Bayview for our anniversary, and it didn't disappoint. The view was spectacular from our room. The room itself was clean, appealing and spacious. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We took advantage of the shuttle to town to avoid the insanity of parking during the holiday.

I must emphasize how wonderful the food was. Breakfast was amazing. A combination of hot and cold choices, with fresh, homemade pastries. Delicious! And fresh cookies greeted us every afternoon, which were too yummy to turn down.

I would recommend this inn to absolutely anyone. If we find ourselves in Maine again, I would love to return.

We were staying at the Holiday Regency and had such rudeness from the management we decided to go down the street and checked into the Bayview Inn. The management was extremely friendly, the rooms spotless as well as a beautiful view of the ocean. We went down to a complimentary breakfast and to our surprise they came around and took our order for bacon,eggs and hash brown potatoes as well as the buffet bar of rolls, juice and such. We found all they advertise to be true. Wish we had found this place when we first arrived in Bar Harbor.

What a wonderful place! Our spacious room was beautifully decorated, the view across the water was lovely, and the breakfasts were delicious! The staff was outstanding -- Jen, Judy & Debbie, Trish, Al, Sue, Laura, and Nora (I undoubtedly forgot someone....forgive me!!) -- and they worked together in a friendly and cheerful manner which made their guests feel welcomed and comfortable. We'll hope to return some day!
