Built in 1930, The Bayview retains the grandeur of that era and is one of the few estates that escaped the Fire of 1947 that destroyed so many Island mansions.  The estate is reminiscent of a gracious chateau of Southern France. The views are magnificent and rooms large. A long terrace overlooks the lawn and the waterfront, with a gas grill and fire pit. You can walk to Bar Harbor or bike to Acadia National Park. With nine bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of bathrooms, a poolroom and kids’ wing, The Bayview is equipped to turn your visit into a life-long memory.
