Arriving late in the evening after dinner with relatives in Brunswick, we were warmly welcomed at the Inn. We traveled with another couple and both of our rooms were lovely. Sparklingly clean and well appointed, with comfy beds and very nice beddings, the Inn has lovely common rooms to enjoy. Our bathroom was well set up and had space for... More

This is a beautifully maintained historic home with several welcoming sitting rooms and they provide lots of pamphlets on local attractions, including local menus. The price is reasonable for Bath, though expensive. Breakfast was delicious, and I felt pampered here. We did not have much interaction with the hosts.

We stayed in this well cared for home for two nights. Our suite was excellent for relaxing and reading on the second afternoon when it was rainy and we decided to come back to the b&b to get out of the rain. Our hosts were very nice and their breakfasts were superb!

Having spent one week touring New England, this was my favorite B and B! The hostess was super nice and the property is beautifully furnished and maintained, spotlessly clean and has relaxing color schemes and spacious rooms. The common areas are also very welcoming.

Our room was beautiful and it was a very peaceful stay. The owners were very accommodating and the food was outstanding. The only issue was that the house was loud and woke us up early in the morning - every time someone was on the stairs, ran the water, etc. so we were up by 6 every morning.

We are so sorry to hear about the early wake up each morning - this is the first time anyone has told us about this experience. Yes, old house and thin walls but we will still look into some options for lessening the noise on the stairs, etc. We are glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay and our... More

We stayed here for one night on a "Lobster Crawl" through New England. Our room and sitting room were very nice. The hosts were very friendly and warm and the breakfast was outstanding. The parking is easy and convenient and the street was a very quiet one. The reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is the internet. It was... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our B&B. The WiFi connection is an ongoing issue that we continue to work on to improve for our guests.

Stayed 2 nights over Labor Day weekend. This BnB has wonderful New England decor, tastefully done and very up-to-date (unlike some BnBs that feel overly floral like your grandmother's home). Comfortable beds and quality hairdryer in the room. Amy even left makeup remover wipes in the bathroom. The highlight was the breakfast - stuffed croissant french toast with homemade sausages...
