Overview

Friendly staff and rooms with balconies
No on-site restaurant, but free breakfast is provided

Set in a serene area in northern Bar Harbor, the appropriately named The Bayview boasts panoramic views of Frenchman Bay and nearby Acadia National Park. Guest rooms are simple yet spacious, featuring private balconies and free wireless internet access. Previous guests appreciate homey services like free cookies every afternoon and complimentary breakfast, but what really draws them to The Bayview is the customer service. Visitors can't help but parise the hotel's staff members for their friendly, accommodating behavior. But before you book, you should note that The Bayview closes during the winter months, only accepting reservations between late May and mid-October.
