Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The B&B is very comfortable with very nice public areas including a lovely garden where breakfast is served on nice days.

The breakfasts were delicious - fresh ingredients expertly prepared. Amy and Mark are willing to accommodate your needs in a gracious and welcoming fashion.

The B&B is less than a ten minute walk from downtown Bath and its apps and restaurants.

Highly recommend this property with no hesitations.

We stayed 5 days in July with Amy and Mark. The breakfasts were homemade, scrumptious, varied(oatmeal pancakes) and we enjoyed eating in the outside garden area in the mornings. The room was very comfortable and had space to move around. Lovely firm bed. Great shower! The decor is inviting, lots of attention to detail and plenty of places to sit and read or just be. Amy was accommodating and friendly with our various needs. This is a great value, which is hard to come by. Thank you for this respite in Maine. We will try to return.

We stayed here on the first night of our New England road trip, all I can say is that it was everything and more than what we would have wanted. The house was absolutely beautiful. There are only 3 rooms in this charming b&b and we were really made to feel like guests not just a room number. Amy was the best host, so friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. We felt totally relaxed and slept so well. Breakfast was served out on the patio, it was just perfect. The only fault I can find with this beautiful home is that one night was not enough!

We had a great experience here! Breakfast every morning was beyond delicious. We were served in a lovely courtyard behind the house. Fruit came from the garden or local farms and sausage was locally sourced.
The room was immaculate and bed was very comfortable.
Mark and Amy were the hosts with the most! They shared information about where to eat, what attractions to visit and they were gracious to share recipes for their amazing food. It was like visiting old friends.

Amy and her husband are the perfect host you could expect in such place… very present when you need them to be but super discrete the whole time. Every room, every detail has been well thought up with elegance and taste to your morning breakfast table and what comes into your plate.
Amy is willing to converse and provide you with any information you may need upon request but again remains super discrete.
They make the whole experience so homy that you don’t even want to leave and can’t wait to go back there. Congratulations!

Charming B&B in the heart of Bath Maine. Our hosts were lovely & our breakfasts were delicious! We attended the Thomas Point Bluegrass festival for 4 days and this B&B was a welcome retreat after a full day of musical fun & games! All of the amenities were thoughtfully provided. Our bed was extremely comfortable, the room immaculate, the turn down service with chocolate treats a pleasant surprise! Our stay was truly memorable- thank you Amy & Mark!

Lovely & restful overnight stay in Bath. Welcoming, clean, & beautifully appointed. Unlike some BnBs that collect & fill every space w/kitsch & clutter, Amy has deftly accented the decor w/just the right amount period perfect pieces. Small touches like turn down service, a pitcher of ice cold water & some small treats awaited us upon returning from dinner. Breakfast was plentiful, hot & delicious. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy more amenities. We will return.

The Garden Suite was our home for four nights and the breakfasts were a high-water mark of our meals. Our room was spacious and comfortable, but we still enjoyed the house's common areas with a fascinating library of books and games. We got great use of the outdoor patio and delighted in the company of their two dogs (joining us by our special request). Many thanks to our hosts Amy and Mark.

Beautiful home. My family of 3 stayed here for one night. My teen had their own room that was connected to ours with the bathroom. Amy was nice and breakfast was awesome. It's a small place, and comes with a few extra touches that make it more personable. Definitely recommend.

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience! From the moment we walked in the door, we were treated, wonderfully! The room was perfect. It was so cozy and inviting. And the food was beyond Compare! The owner, Amy, is a wonderful hostess. From the turn down service, to the nightly available tea service, to the little thoughtful things in each room, it made our stay perfect!
