We are continuing to take the COVID-19 healthcare crisis very seriously at The Bayview. We care about our employees, we care about our guests, and we care about our community. Last year we instituted special operational changes that we will carry forward into the 2022 season until the pandemic is fully behind us. Please continue reading to learn more about what to expect during your stay, and be sure to check out our booking and cancellation policies. Things are a little different at The Bayview, but as we like to say – different but still fabulous!

We’re excited to share that starting May 1st, Maine is shifting its COVID-19 travel policy requirements from an “all states included, unless exempt” model to an “all states exempt, unless included” model. This means that travelers from all states are automatically exempt unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC. Please visit Maine.gov for complete and up-to-date details.

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


Grab & Go Convenience

Our grab-and-go breakfast, which can also be delivered to your door, includes 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 local 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.

We know many couples have had to change their original wedding celebration plans due to COVID-19. Let the Bayview’s Wedding Concierge help you make memories to last a lifetime with a micro-wedding or romantic elopement in Bar Harbor. These intimate events have a small guest list, but that just makes them all the more special!
