Bay View Collection, a small group of distinctive, luxury boutique hotels in Camden, whose properties include the Lord Camden Inn, Grand Harbor Inn, and the all new 16 Bay View, has recently expanded its management team.

Marcus Carter joined the Bay View Collection in August as its new bar manager, responsible for overseeing the lobby bar and small plates venue, “Vintage Room," and the rooftop bar and terrace, “The View,” both located at 16 Bay View. Carter will also oversee banquet bar operations for private social events and catered functions. He comes to Bay View Collection with many years of serving, bartending and managerial experience in the food and beverage industry, and may be a familiar face to many here in the Midcoast as Carters most recent stint was at the Eclipse Restaurant and Speakeasy in Rockland as a server, bartender and manager.

“I'm really excited to join the Bayview team! I feel so honored to be welcomed into a team of professionals who are so encouraging and supportive! I've been given a wonderful opportunity to do great things here and I'm hoping my creativity and uniqueness will help accentuate our guests experiences for an absolutely awesome time with us! I'm anxious to start working on our new fall menu which will be coming out soon”, said Carter in a news release.

Carter also remarks, “of the many things I'm looking forward to about this job, it’s the ability to brainstorm new and exciting idea's to better our guests experiences as well as the freedom and encouragement to create beverages that you'll fall in love with! I love to think outside the box and create drink specials that you can’t get anywhere else but here! I am also looking forward to working with Matthew Levin, our director of Hotels, and Erick Anderson, general manager, as they are very well-known in this community and I am honored to be a part of the team here at 16 Bay View! I hope you all stop down for a drink or even just come in and see our amazing view of the Camden Harbor as well as our Vintage Room! We're open to the public! Come on down and we'll see you soon!”

The Bay View Collection’s Director of Hotels & Marketing, Matthew Levin, and its General Manager, Erick Anderson, are very excited to welcome Carter to the management team and hospitality family and look forward to taking the group of distinctive, luxury properties to even higher levels of success and service.
