From the telephone reservation, to arrival greeting from Matt to farewell from Tony, and everything in between, Bayview's staff is exceptional staff to the person. A happy, relaxed, smiling, friendly, caring staff makes an unmistakable difference. We were immediately transformed to vacation and relaxation mode....More

Thank you! I think the use of the word "never" is a great confirmation to the staff that they are doing a stand up job. The proof is in the pudding! I feel that if a guest such as you returns three times then we...More

This was our third trip to the Bayview and it never gets old. I don't know what it is, but it just keeps calling us back. The first time we passed through the arch I joked to my husband, this feels like "The Ponderosa" 😂....More

Thank you! The only things missing are the horses, the rolling fields, and the Cartwrights! We do have deer roaming, rolling ocean waves and many hands on the ranch! A ten hour drive is definitely a long one and we are glad you feel it...More

Hi, I was a guest and do not know the rates for October. The place is so wonderful though! The staff, rooms, property/views, breakfast, afternoon baked goods, proximity to town and Acadia NP ... Enjoy!
