5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2009

The Bayview has spectacular views. The staff at the Bayview made you feel extremely comfortable and went out of their way to make your stay a fantastic experience. All of the small extras made our stay very relaxing and enjoyable. All our expectations were exceeded at the Bayview in our 8 day stay.

We had six wonderful days here. My husband and I traveled with her daughter and son-in-law and two grand daughters. Initially we argued about where to stay in Bar Harbor. My husband and I wanted the luxury of a hotel and my daughter and son-in-law wanted to stay in a townhouse. We found a hotel with townhouses in the Bayview. They have a series of two and three bedroom townhouses. Because the hotel was solidly booked, we spent the first three nights in a two bedroom townhouse and the last three nights in a three bedroom townhouse. They are exactly alike except the third bedroom is actually a third-floor loft which has a King sized bed and two twins. The other bedrooms are on the first floor. Also on the first floor are two full baths. The master bedroom is large and has a fireplace and french doors that open unto a small terrace. The second floor has a nice kitchen, dining room and living room with another fireplace. The hotel is on the ocean and also has a small pool. There is a small bar. The hotel serves a delicious full breakfast each morning and you can eat in a lovely dining room or out on the terrace over looking the ocean. The staff is friendly and pleasant. If you need a ride into town, you only have to request it and one of there cars will drop you off. When you are ready to come back, just call. The place is spotless. The kitchen is well stocked. You will want for nothing. My only complaint is that the mattresses could be more comfortable. We complained about that and they put a board in the mattress for us.

My husband, 2 children, and I just stayed 3 nights at the Bayview--what a great find ! this is one of the best places that we have ever stayed--the breakfast was completely wonderful, the room was CLEAN and roomy and comfortable for the 4 of us--the staff was friendly and helpful and went above and beyond the call of duty on several occasions ! Linda, THANK YOU once more for rescuing my daughter and me from the top of Cadillac Mountain, Donna, thank you for entertaining me while I checked my email on numerous occasions, and Raife (sp?), thank you for going and getting our pizza at Rosalies--thank you to the rest of the staff but I just don't know everyone's names--I bow to the kitchen staff.........I would give ANYTHING for a piece of your blueberry gingerbread right now ! I've already Googled a recipe for it--spectacular views from the room--we hope to stay there again someday and we do not hesitate to recommend the Bayview--RUN, don't walk, to stay there ! 3 best, relaxing days EVER !

This hotel makes customer service a number one priority. They have a friendly staff who is eager to please and assist. The driveway into the hotel passes under an arched sign and then curves its way toward the water amidst beautiful trees and grass. Views from the third floor balcony were worth the price of the stay. The room was large and very quiet and the bed was particularly comfortable. I would stay here again.

My family spent a week at The Bayview and we were all more than happy with our stay. The staff are uniformly friendly and accomodating. They go to great lengths to please. The rooms and condos are large, comfortable and full of amenities and the view is wonderful. Breakfast is great and the afternoon cookies are a treat that you will not want to skip even once. All of this is the result of great management. You will have a great experience at the Bayview.
