We stayed two nights recently at The Bayview. We got a room with an ocean view and it was spectacular! In the mornings, we could see the sunrise through the trees and over the ocean from our room. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly here. It isn't a large hotel so there were never crowds to fight and it remained very quiet. This is a perfect hotel for a romantic vacation. The location is within striking distance of downtown and Acadia National Park. We went to both with ease. I would most definitely recommend this hotel!
My husband and I went on a vacation with some very dear friends. We decided to reserve the Bayview. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly faces. The view was amazing from our bay side room. From the friendly staff to the little extras like fresh cookies in the afternoon, our stay was amazing. They also offered to shuttle us downtown and pick us up which was a definate bonus. We would love to go back and stay there again someday.
