My husband and I needed a change of scenery after a long 2020 and this was the perfect choice. The Inn is beautifully maintained and the cleanest hotel/motel/B&B/Inn we have ever stayed at. Rachel, the innkeeper, walked me through all the COVID protocols prior to our booking and obviously maintained them when we were there - limited number of guests, cleansing process, food prep/serving, masks, etc.
The daily breakfast was delicious and creatively prepared. The homemade granola, fresh baked goods, and the blueberry pancakes were really well made with excellent portions. The baked apple however, is truly worth the cost of the visit!! Fantastic!!
The room was large, well appointed and again spotless. We stayed in The America’s Cup Room. It is easily accessible in a quiet corner overlooking the pool. I was able to sit in a comfy chair and read while sipping my wine as my husband relaxed on the bed watching TV. It was perfect for the two of us.
The Inn is nicely located near to Bath center and the Maine Maritime Museum. We were able to visit many locations including Georgetown, Fort Popham, Reid State Park and Boothbay Harbor in one day on a leisurely drive.
My husband and I cannot recommend Rachel and the Inn any more highly. I can’t wait to go back with my daughter for a girl’s trip in the summer so we can sit by the pool and just relax.
The best three reasons to stay at Kennebec Inn:
-- Guests are in the care of a talented and experienced innkeeper who takes hospitality seriously. Every day begins with a different delicious breakfast created by Rachel, who obviously loves to cook/bake. Bring your sweet tooth. The entire Inn is immaculately clean.
--The location is excellent. The center of Bath, a 10-15 minute walk from the Inn, has Central Maine charm and several good restaurants. There are two great sand beaches within a half-hour drive. Reid State Park is great. The coastline from Portland to Camden is accessible with an hour. Lots more good restaurants in picturesque nearby towns.
-- The Inn itself is a great place to relax. The house and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The pool in back offers a refreshing swim and a great place to kick back with a book.
This is one of the best B&B we have stayed. The rooms are well decorated, extra- clean and 9, with all you need and more. Mattress beyond comfortable, toiletries and great linens.
Breakfast was abundant and delicious, home made granola, yoghurt, mint from the owner’s garden. Pool at the garden , also extra-clean. We truly recommend this place. Owner have is great advice about surrounding area and was great and helpful!
Let me start off by saying you won’t be disappointed if you stay here. The breakfast is hot, filling and awesome! Rachel switches between sweet and savory. My favorite was the egg custard overnight French toast and my husband’s favorite was the egg Benedict.
Our friends stayed in the room beside us and we stayed in th America’s Cup room for four nights. What was great was that I felt like we had our own wing. At night we could leave our doors open and go back and forth between our rooms. These two rooms are in the attached, converted Carriage house with the original beams incorporated into the room. The bed is on the firmer side but not like sleeping on a board, still comfortable.
Rachel allowed us to store our 4 pounds of Maine cheese and cheese curds along with adult beverages in the refrigerator. I also wanted to say her house is IMMACULATE! There isn’t a speck of dust, hair, or spider web anywhere. There is also period furniture that adds that nice touch of feeling at home without it feeling like a museum.
There is an in ground pool on their property but since it isn’t heated, we didn’t use it. There is a well built fire pit but we didn’t utilize that either. Rachel let us borrow 3 beach chairs, a bag, cooler, ice packs, and beach towels. She offered us an umbrella but we didn’t think we’d need it, once we got to Reid State Park, we wish we had one.
Go to Kennebec Taveren for the best clam chowder in the world. Mmmmm. Rachel was a plethora of knowledge about the area. We did the beach, 5 Islands, and Freeport in one day without having to drive to far. Bath is a great low-key home base for attractions as far as Camden, Rockland, and Portland. Stay here, you won’t be sorry.
Stayed here for 2 nights on my way to Gloucester from North Maine. Rachel is very welcoming and the Inn is well located for the town and exploring the area. I was in a room that was accessed by a very steep staircase which when I reread the Inn description did mention this but I had not clocked that that was my room! I am fit and able but getting my rather large case back down the staircase was a tad harrowing! The Inn has a lovely, good sized pool which was the deciding factor for me in choosing to stay there. The breakfast was fantastic, delicious home cooked choices, berries yogurt etc. I did not need to eat lunch. Easy 15 min walk into town for dinner and quite a choice of restaurants. Easy off street parking, the room was very well appointed, extremely clean and the WiFi worked a treat. Good quiet a/c as it is quite close to main road so there is hum of background traffic noise which if the windows were open could be bit noisy at night I suspect , but definitely not an issue as a/c good.
