    The Bayview was like a hotel but with a homey feel like a bed and breakfast. Our room was on the lower level (but still with a balcony) and faced the bay (as did all the rooms). Our view of the bay was wonderful. Each...More

    Thank you! I think that your comment about the homey feel is so true. It does have the feel of a bed and breakfast and yet it offers the privacy of a hotel. Most times a breakfast at a B&B is much more than a...More

    Hi, I was a guest and do not know the rates for October. The place is so wonderful though! The staff, rooms, property/views, breakfast, afternoon baked goods, proximity to town and Acadia NP ... Enjoy!

    In the hotel itself, no. If you rent a townhouse you do get a washer and dryer.
