The Bayview is a traditional, upper-middle-range hotel situated on lovely green oceanfront grounds just outside of downtown Bar Harbor. Though the clean, spacious rooms are a tad bland, few guests seem to notice or mind, thanks to the fact that all have have private porches with gorgeous views of Frenchman Bay. They also have antique-style furniture, comfortable beds, and modern amenities that include flat-screen TVs, microwaves, Keurig coffeemakers, and mini-fridges. Townhouses are also available; these include full kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, and private porches with ocean views. Note that the property closes during the winter months.
