Built in 1851 by Captain James B. Perkins, the Inn offers a park-like setting with vintage barn, easy parking, picnic area, large peaceful en-suites, and a gated in ground swimming pool. Among other things, guests enjoy a three-course breakfast served each morning on beautiful Blue Willow China, free wireless internet, easy access to town, shopping and beach. But the best part about The Kennebec Inn is its welcoming feel and the owner's attention to detail. Relax...You're at the Kennebec Inn.

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.

A lovely inn near the heart of Bath, ME. Our room (The Captain Perkins Room) was spacious, beautifully furnished, and had a comfortable king-sized bed. It also boasts a private entrance (a nice feature). Our host Rachel was engaging and made us feel welcome. She's also a fabulous cook and served breakfasts that were tasty and creative (without being over-the-top, as at some other B&B's we've experienced). The Inn is within walking distance of the center of town and the riverbank. Its location is also a perfect launching point for area attractions, such as Popham Beach and Five Islands. Highly recommended! We'll book there again next time we're in the area.

This B&B is everything you would expect from staying in a historic home in New England. The house is lovely and furnished with beautiful antiques. Our room was quite comfy and spacious, with modern amenities, including a newly updated bathroom. Breakfast was fantastic - eggs Benedict cooked perfectly along with a couple sweet dishes and fresh coffee.The only downside was having to carry luggage up the very narrow, steep staircase to our room, so we opted to just bring up a few things up at a time. Lovely stay, friendly hostess, great location, delicious food - a winning combination.

The Kennebec Inn is THE place to stay in Bath. If you want a great Bed and Breakfast with old world ambiance this is the place for you. Rachel was very friendly, welcoming and full of information about the city. Our room was on the 1st floor and fit our needs perfectly. The bedroom was very spacious with a comfortable bed, large bathroom and great pillows. The 3 course breakfast was generous with a great selection of sweet breads, fresh fruit, cereal, breads and eggs. The Kennebec Inn is in a great location, very close to downtown, GREAT shopping and a myriad of restaurants. We highly recommend Kennebec Inn and would stay there again.

This is really easy to write - superb hospitality and a great host. Thank you Rachel for such a lovely stay. Our room was large and very comfortable and everywhere was exceptionally clean. Rachel's advice on places to visit and eat were spot on. Her breakfasts are delightful and it was lovely to share experiences with the other guests - it was hard to leave the table. Thank you Rachel for making our stay so enjoyable.

Stayed just one night on our way down from Arcadia. It was real nice to cool off and relax in the pool. Rachel is a great hostess with lots of knowledge of the area. We had a good nights sleep in our large room. We had a generous breakfast the next morning. Wish we stayed longer. Highly recommend it. Hope some day to go back...

We stayed here for four nights. Rachel was a delight, friendly and helpful but never intrusive, and gave us lots of space. And the breakfasts!! Meals in themselves, and everyone delicious. I am gluten and dairy free, and she cooked me a special breakfast everyday, catering to my needs. Pancakes with cinnamon apple, eggs benedict, and the most delicious dairy free gluten free cheese and vegetable wrap. Not to mention the fruit, the banana bread, the donuts...just lovely. The swimming pool was fabulous and I was the only one using it each time I swam. The rooms are immaculately clean and fresh. And there are lots of things to do nearby. Walking into the centre of Bath only takes a few minutes. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We have had several stays in Bath in the last year and had to book a stay here as the place we usually stay at was fully booked. I was a bit nervous as this was my first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast. I was absolutely amazed at the service and accommodations here along with my husband and teenage son. The rooms are beautifully decorated in traditional furniture. Everything was spotless. The rooms that we had were spacious, comfortable and bright with free WI FI , water and homemade cookies. Breakfast is served between 8 a.m. - 9 a.m. and it is a breakfast you do not want to miss. Rachel, the owner, served us breakfast each morning which was fit for a king in blue porcelain China. She is an excellent cook and baker. She is such a bubbly, lovely lady. It was a pleasure meeting her and hopefully we will get to stay here again.
