Amazing Team! Great Venue!

The entire team at the Bay View Collection was phenomenal. From my initial communications to day-of operations they provided excellent service. We had our rehearsal dinner at The View in July 2023 and did room blocks for our guests at Lord Camden Inn and 16 Bay View for our wedding weekend.

Ashley's communication was above and beyond. She was always punctual to respond. Her organization of our rehearsal dinner was flawless. The staff was attentive and friendly. We could not have hoped for a better rehearsal dinner. Our guests absolutely loved it, and "The View" certainly meets up to its name.

The hotel was phenomenal. The rooms were luxurious and spacious. We used the Camden Harbor Suite and Ocean View Suites for our bride and groom ready-rooms, and they were absolutely perfect for photographs!

I would recommend 16 Bay View to anyone! We are excited to take a trip back to Camden and stay there again.

Wonderful Wonderful!

I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with the Bayview. We had a small reception on the rooftop, overlooking the Bay. Our guests noted that it topped their wedding lists for best ever attended in terms of views, service and food! Andrea knocked it out of the park with gourmet cuisine. Erick also was amazing with his planning. Ours guests also complimented their craft cocktails. We highly recommend this venue for thoughtful touches!

Wonderful experience working with 16 Bay View

We had our wedding here last July. Originally we were planning to have our ceremony outside but it ended up raining on our wedding day. Ashely and the rest of the 16 Bay View team worked quickly to transform The View into a beautiful ceremony space! They opened The Vintage Room to allow our guests a place to gather while they changed The View from the ceremony to the cocktail hour. We could not have gotten through that day without Ashley. She made everything run smoothly and seem effortless. Ashley and the rest of the team made the day completely stress free and perfect! It's six months later and we can’t believe we ever had a different ceremony plan. Having the ceremony on The View turned out better than we could have dreamed. Even with the rain it was gorgeous and made our wedding even more intimate.
When planning our wedding we knew that the food and drinks were a big part of it for us. The chef, Andrea, worked with us in advance to come up with a completely custom menu before we did our in person tasting. The food was INCREDIBLE. We cannot say that enough! All of our guests asked about the chef and talked about how amazing the food was. Several of our friends have said it was the best food they have ever had at an event. Andrea also went out of her way to help us get the craft beer that we wanted from some of our favorite Maine breweries. The head bartender and mixologist at the time (Red) worked with us to create three incredible cocktails that could also be served as a non alcoholic version. Our tasting night with Andrea and Red was probably our best memory from planning our wedding. They are truly artists and helped us give our guests the experience that we had dreamed for our day. It was a joy to work with this team from the beginning to the end.
