I had originally wanted to get a room closer to Bar Harbor's downtown area, but boy am I glad I didn't! Located close to the entrance of Acadia National Park, the main reason for our three-day visit, The Bayview feels like a family-run business, combining the best of a hotel and a B&B into one fabulous stay.
It has everything you are looking for. You know you are in for a treat when you walk in the door (and are greeted by fresh cookies!). We had a gigantic room on the second floor with an amazing view of the water. The staff was super friendly and the breakfasts fresh and tasty. And don't miss a chance to stop by for cocktails from 5-7...the bartender is a lot of fun to chat with! And as for proximity to Bar Harbor...at a mile or so away, you could walk it. Or you could take the free shuttle the hotel offers. They will drop you off when and where you want and pick you up when you call.
Really, the stay could not have been better.More
