Stayed at The Bayview during a beautiful fall weekend. The hotel is ideally situated away from the congestion of Bar Harbor, but close enough to walk or take a short ride. The staff are outstanding - very friendly and ready to provide great recommendations for restaurants and Acadia activities. Best feature of the rooms are the amazing water views and balconies. Interiors are nice but not luxurious or trendy. Don't miss the homemade baked goods served every day starting at 2pm. Also take advantage of the hotel shuttle which will take you to/from Bar Harbor for dinner so you can enjoy drinks and not worry about driving.
