There are fancier hotels in Bar Harbor. There are more expensive hotels in Bar Harbor. But none of the others offer an expansive ocean view 75 feet off the back of the hotel that is completely unobstructed. The staff is attentive, friendly and professional. The rooms are comfortable and there is always a case of homemade cookies waiting for guests... More

Just FYI, this is NOT the TA site for the Bayview Hotel. Please note this and apply your comments to their actual site. They serve a free breakfast only in their dining room as a buffet for their guests. The general public can also eat breakfast there for a fee. They do not serve lunch or dinner. I am not... More

We spent our 40th Anniversary at the Bayview Inn. We were greeted with a chilled bottle of Champagne, Dried fruit snack and a lovey card recognizing our special day. The breakfast is amazing! We sat on the deck each morning and enjoyed the outstanding food and the view. Our room was on the end, overlooking Frenchman's Bay. Very clean and... More

Stayed for 3 nights for our first visit to Maine. Good reviews on TA so we picked The Bayview. Glad we did! Large recently renovated rooms. Private balcony, directly on bay. Watch the boats come and go! Great breakfast buffet each morning. Shuttle service is great since parking in downtown Bar Harbor can be challenging. You won't be disappointed!

This is a great place to feel pampered and to relax. Great breakfasts are included. All the hotel rooms have views of the ocean with balconies. Staff is very friendly. Homemade cookies and treats are served daily! There is also a full bar if you're s inclined. They offer a shuttle service to close by points - making it very... More

Been here a half dozen times. Generally Always good to excellent. Today was very different, it was not really busy, although lots of attention was paid to those folks at the pool who were ordering lunch & drinks. Perhaps more attention Is paid to the people who are staying at the hotel. Our service was unusually slow, and having to... More

What can I say? It's not the Ritz but the service and attention to detail make this an amazing place. The views from the balconies are superb. You are greeted with home made cookies and told to help yourself! The rooms, beds and furnishings are delightful. There's a shuttle bus to take you to the town when ever you want... More

Did not stay at the Inn, but enjoyed a late lunch on the outdoor patio on a beautiful early afternoon. My wife and I shared a lobster salad as well as an appetizer entree. The meal was delicious and nicely prepared and presented. Even though there was heavy traffic for the time of day, we in no way felt pressured... More

We made a reservation and were treated to a seat byt the big bay windows to watch the harbor ships and sunset. The weather was cooperating and we got a spectacular, lovely, fall-colored sunset! They 'put on the dog' with the waitstaff, however, ours was a bit too friendly and then seemed to disappear when we needed him. The food... More

I wanted to stay at this Inn but there were no vacancy calling three weeks in advance. However I did manage to have dinner there and it was a special treat. Food was great, service was wonderful and the views were outstanding.
