We take the current healthcare crisis very seriously at The Bayview. We care about our employees, we care about our guests, and we care about our community. Residents of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut can start your Maine vacation today. Social distancing is still in place, but residents of these states can travel without restriction. Things will seem a bit different this year at The Bayview, but as we like to stay – different but still fabulous!

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

Our wonderful housekeepers will be there at your comfort level. We can safely clean your room during your visit with appropriate protocols or we can simply pick up and leave fresh towels for you. Your vacation is about you! We are here to make you as comfortable as we can in these extraordinary times.

Granola Breakfast with Water view

Breakfast will be left at your door and will include yummy baked goods, our vegan/gluten free granola, delicious plant based yogurt and seasonal fresh fruit. All rooms are equipped with refrigerators and coffee makers so if you can’t eat it all, simply save some for later.

Acadia Ocean Drive

Area Activities

Our Bar Harbor community is responding in extraordinary ways

Our restaurants are offering alfresco dining with our Town Council even providing sidewalk space to serve outside. They have perfected take out and delivery services and we love that Bayview guests have their private oceanfront decks for dining enjoyment. Limited inside dining is possible in most restaurants with strict observance of social distancing rules.

Acadia National Park has opened the Park Loop Road, perhaps one of the most beautiful spots in the country. You can follow Ocean Drive and enjoy these dramatic views. If you are here to hike, bike or walk the trails – the awe inspiring vistas remain. Ask us for our curated list of area hikes.
