16 Bay View
What We Love
- A new boutique hotel in a renovated industrial brick building, with breakfast and welcome treats
- Staying at the most highly anticipated luxury boutique hotel in the area
- Enjoying your complimentary breakfast, served buffet-style
- Trying out the shops, galleries, restaurants and schooner charters of this iconic resort town
Camden, Maine, has long been a sought-after resort town. Often referred
to as the Jewel of the Maine Coast, it’s drawn exuberant vacationers
since the 1880s, and its popularity skyrocketed shortly after one
enterprising hotelier in that decade opened a collection of summer
cottages. Watch the city’s now-thriving culture of hospitality continue
to evolve and grow at 16 Bay View, Camden’s most highly
anticipated luxury boutique hotel of 2016.
Just like Camden in
the 19th century, when the now-iconic destination was a shipbuilding
hub, the property builds on an industrial foundation. The owners have
taken a 20th-century brick property and renovated it into a comfortable,
stylish getaway. You’ll enjoy a gas fireplace in your room, a panoramic
harbor view from the rooftop, a daily buffet breakfast and fantastic
proximity to the best there is to do. After all, the hotel’s done more
than just put its finger on Camden’s pulse; with an address on
restaurant- and shop-lined Bay View Street, it’s cut right to the area’s
Rooms and suites
There are 21 accommodations at 16 Bay
View, each designed with your luxury and comfort in mind. Enjoy
top-of-the-line touches in each, like a cozy gas fireplace and a
spa-inspired bathroom with a walk-in shower, radiant floor heat, a
two-sink vanity and a freestanding soaking tub. Bay View Street
King rooms are found on the second and third floors and offer views over
lively Bay View Street (perfect for people-watching). Executive rooms,
which come with either one king or two queen beds, are located on the
second floor on the property’s harbor side, which means you’ll have
partial views of the Camden Hills and Camden Harbor. For optimum
luxury, the high-ceilinged Executive King suites, also located on the
second floor of the harbor side, boast a bedroom and a separate sitting
area, which includes a pull-out sleeper sofa. Your fireplace may be
double-sided, or you might have two separate ones. You’ll also have the
added perk of an extra 40-in. TV.
Camden’s coastal culture with ease from 16 Bay View, which is located
just steps from the water and on Bay View Street. This thoroughfare
features a number of the town’s most beloved shops and restaurants,
including Owl and Turtle Bookshop & Cafe and Natalie’s Restaurant.
In winter, visit the Camden Snow Bowl – the East Coast’s only ski resort
with ocean views – and when the weather’s nice, consider embarking on a
schooner ride around the bay. Depending on the time of year, you may
also be able to catch a show at the Camden Opera House or a fun event,
like the local restaurant week or thrilling windjammer festival.
How to Get There
My husband and I visited here for a little winter getaway. Camden is a cute little town with friendly shop owners, plenty of foodie restaurants, and of course, beautiful nature all around. The hotel rooms were large and comfortable, the employees all so personal and friendly, the breakfast frittatas amazing! We found many hiking options nearby, and also spent some time in Rockland, enjoying the Wyeth paintings.
Within walking distance to everything Camden has to offer this charming small hotel delivers finely appointed rooms with spa worthy bathrooms. The professional staff were friendly and accommodating. For location, decor and value this hotel wins hands down. We’ll plan to stay here every visit back to the Midcoast.
We could not get a room here, sadly, as we tried last minute but we did stop in both nights to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail in their cozy yet elegant bar. The bartender was great - very personable and knowledgeable, gave us good restaurant suggestions. There are very comfy clubby chairs, a few small couches, and stools along the window. We'll definitely try to book earlier next time to ensure we can get a room here as their location can not be beat. Right on one of the main streets and walkable to everything in Camden - restaurants, shops, etc.
We just spent 2 nights on a long weekend at 16 Bayview and enjoyed our time immensely. The room is just gorgeous and well planned out. We had a corner suite with a beautiful bathroom including a relaxing deep soaking stand alone tub and separate shower. I wanted to bring the bathroom home with me! I am sure the patio is perfect in the summer. I love the doublesided fireplace which provides a lot of warmth in the winter. We had a huge storm so got to enjoy the amenities of the room a lot. Our 1.5 year old loved the room and hotel too. The breakfast was tasty. The service was so personal and everyone we encountered was genuinely very kind and friendly and welcoming to our toddler. I would highly recommend this place for the room and bathroom, location and great service. Its really nice to be able to walk around downtown too. We cant wait to come back sometime and enjoy better weather! thanks for a wonderful weekend!
Stayed here for 3 nights. Great location literally a stones throw from the Harbor, Boat Tours, restaurants. Bathroom/tub was awesome, breakfast mini buffet fresh and outstanding. Roof top bar awesome. The only negative was the room was a little noisy when people walked down the hall. Balcony was great. Overall an awesome choice in Camden. I would stay here again.
