The Bay View Collection is excited to announce three new partnerships with local Midcoast Maine charitable organizations for an opportunity to give back and show thanks as part of our company’s annual “Great Rates for a Great Cause” giving campaigns. Available at each of our three Camden boutique hotels, for 2023, the Bay View Collection has selected “Finding Our Voices” (partnered with Grand Harbor Inn), “NAMI Maine” (partnered with 16 Bay View) and “PAWS” (partnered with Lord Camden Inn).
“Giving back to our community is woven into the fabric of the Bay View Collection and our owners, Stuart and Marianne Smith”, says Matthew Levin, Director of Hotels. “The missions of these three organizations matter, and resonate for many of our hospitality family. We are excited about the opportunity to contribute to their great causes.”
Donations for our “Great Rates for a Great Cause” campaign are generated through an amazing discounted offer at each of our hotels. Guests who choose to participate receive a 50% discount off their two or more-night stay (in select rooms and suites), and in exchange for this significantly discounted room rate, guests make a minimum donation of $40/night towards the charitable organization. This offer begins November 1st and continues through April 30th, 2023.
