We stayed in a one room cottage but they have various size accommodations including some for families . We actually had no reservations and booked it while on a road trip . The staff couldn't have been more friendly! There is a nice complementary breakfast offered . The location of the cottages is mid way between Bar Harbor and Booth... More

Booked a pre-paid night online and were given a room in the upstairs portion of the motel. Bed was very short & small and the room, although decorated in a kitschy red lobster theme, was still a motel room. Very small & noisy room (right on the road and a lot of traffic noise). They do include a small Continental... More

It was a nice cottage and dog friendly. Good areas to walk the dog and park the car. Only real complaint we had is that they advertised a private porch, which we did not have. No tv so don't go there expecting to watch TV. It was centrally located to many good places. We stayed 2 nights and that was... More

We stayed for a quick weekend in August 2015. We had to go up for a family memorial service and as it was the same weekend as the Lobster Festival, our choices were limited. I found Bay Leaf and was a bit hesitant due to a couple of the reviews but as long as we had a place to lay... More

I visited with my wife and young child, we had a fabulous time. The facilities were accommodating. The Ocean view from our porch was awesome. The staff and Inn keeper is just a God send! I am planning to return semi annually!!!!

Back for another 3 nights after our first visit 2 years ago. Stayed across our previous cottage and this one had a little porch and a little bit more room inside this time - at least I think there was as I didn't trip over anything this time. Regardless it was very nicely decorate and very quaint. Very quiet until... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed the little cabin. We arrived later in the evening and our room keys were waiting in an envelope for us. When we walked inside we were a little surprised there was no TV, but we quickly got over that. Also, Wi-Fi signal was free and very strong. It was a quaint... More

I was on my way to a family picnic and decided to leave a day early to stay in the Camden area. I found Bay Leaf on my Trip Advisor search. I love staying in cabins and cottages so was thrilled there was one available. It was so cozy. I enjoyed having a kitchenette in my room and the outside... More
