Not very clean, not very comfortable

The first thing we noticed is the huge gap in the door. Sunlight came in. Next the toilet was dirty was the previous guests. One of the towels had a huge clump of hair in it. And to the cherry on top was an incredibly uncomfortable bed.

Thank you for your hospitality, Bayview Hotel. The team here made our stay special - Greg, Serge, Chamarie, Dixie - everyone we interacted with was so kind and personable. The morning breakfast, including homemade granola, was the perfect start to our day, the location to the park entrance and downtown Bar Harbor ideal, and the view was amazing! All we can say is thank you, Bayview Hotel.

Great Stay and Location!

Reviewed By pjmitchell

Staff was friendly and efficient. Check-in was easy. Hotel was a GREAT location to the Bar Harbor Village for dinner every night without moving the car-just a few block walk to many choices. Breakfast served on site from 7am -10am which was convenient. My only suggestion was to open the coffee bar at 6:30am before breakfast as a convenience, since staff is there anyway prepping breakfast. Thank you for a lovely two nights!

Lovely property convenient to Acadia

Reviewed By robandjesss

We very much enjoyed our stay here! The property is beautifully maintained with a playground and cute lake, and our kids enjoyed the paddle boat and watching the mama and baby ducks. The cabins were stocked with everything we needed, and we enjoyed the fresh air on the screened porch. The property is convenient to Acadia and Bar Harbor (~10-15 min drive down the road) and the mainland. The only downside was a bit of noise from the road. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely stay again!

Balance Rock Inn

Balance Rock Inn is one of the premier oceanfront lodging properties in Bar Harbor, ME. Set on a secluded tree-covered property with expansive views of Frenchman's Bay, this luxurious bed and breakfast Inn's name celebrates the "balance rock," a precariously positioned boulder on the nearby ocean shore, a huge remnant from an ice age. The Inn offers a tremendous sense of privacy and serenity, yet steps away lies downtown Bar Harbor with its village green and many fine shops and restaurants. Built as a family "cottage" in 1903, when wealthy tycoons selected the most desirable locations along the rocky, island-studded Maine coast for their summer season mansions, Balance Rock Inn today presents romantic ambiance and luxury amenities to make your vacation relaxing and unforgettable. Gaze from the veranda past the glistening swimming pool, beautiful flower gardens and sweeping lawns framed with stately trees, to where the property connects with the historic Shore Path walk along the water

The best place to stay in Bar Harbor

Reviewed By NOLANE208

The perfectly located and lavish Balance Rock Inn is a renovated mansion that was built back in the Gilded Age. Its located right on the Shore Path, right near the ocean, and a few blocks from the heart of downtown Bar Harbor with all of its wonderful shops and restaurants. The Balance Rock Inn also has by far the best service of any hotel I have ever been too. Every staff member I came in contact with went above and beyond at all times. In addition, the Inn is clean, comfortable and about as luxurious as can be. The Inn also features its own restaurant, a delicious included full breakfast and an on-site bar, where you can have drinks either inside or outside by the pool or firepit. There is no better place to stay in Bar Harbor.
