My husband, son and I were in Maine for a wedding and had a very nice 2 night stay at the Kennebec Inn. Rachel was very welcoming upon our arrival, showing us to our room - the Captain Perkins Room - and giving us our best restaurant options for dinner. We really liked our room - it was spacious, clean, nicely decorated and had a tv with ample channel selections. The beds were a bit high (I'm short!) but comfortable, with crisp white sheets and bright white, like-new, cotton quilts. The bathroom was immaculate - I've never seen a cleaner one in all the rooms I've ever stayed - right down to the floor and baseboards and even the shower mat! Breakfast is served between 8 & 9 in the dining room - which has 2 large dining tables. We very much enjoyed our morning conversations

We stayed at the "Kennebec Inn" for 2 nights, while travelling from Boston to Bar Harbour. We enjoyed the nice and quiet stay at Rachels B&B. The house and rooms were very clean, what we appreciate. Rachel welcomed us with a bunch oft ideas, what to do in the arrounding, equipped us with maps, beach chairs, beach-umbrella and a cooling-box. We enjoyed a very tasty breakfast with homemade Granola etc. We felt welcome and would recommend her at any time! Bath is a nice little city, worth to visit, especially the ice-cream-shop, wich is crowded after dinnertime. No wonder, best ice-cream ever!

My husband and I stayed at the Kennebec Inn while visiting from the west coast. We had a wonderful stay - Rachel was so accommodating and lovely and our room was comfortable and quiet. The entire place was very clean and felt like home. We would highly recommend staying here and hope to return!

On a recent Friday night, an accommodation at another location some distance away fell through. We vowed to stop by the Kennebec Inn as our first choice for lodging. We were ecstatic to find out from Rachel, with whom we had stayed previously, that she had 1 room available. Our good fortune was enhanced by a luxurious night's sleep in the Captain Perkins room - immaculate, private, AC on a hot day, most comfortable! Rachel's homemade breakfast the following day included challah bread baked on site and converted to French Toast along with other delectables. This fueled us for the 350 mile drive that day. THANK YOU, RACHEL!

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

Kennebec Inn was the perfect place for our girls' trip this year (2017). The six of us stayed four nights. The Inn is very clean and comfortable - a must for us. Rachel is a wonderful gracious hostess. She is very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and activities. She prepares amazing bountiful breakfasts. You certainly start the day off right! Each day when returning from our day's excursions, we would always find large delicious freshly baked cookies in our rooms. However, if you're short like a couple of women in our group, do bring an extra small mirror. The mirrors in the baths were too high for some of us shortys. That's the only minor suggestion I have for guests. It's really a great place to stay. Ruth, Muncie ,IN

As your visit comes to an end at the Kennebec Inn, you will already be planning your return. Yes, it's that great of a place! It's iconic Maine and exactly what we had in mind when planning our first visit to the state. The house is historic, immaculate and comfortable. Rachel is an absolute perfect host - a talented chef, an expert on the area and a gifted storyteller. Staying in Bath is the perfect spot to explore all of the Mid Coast, which is exactly what we did. With recommendations from Rachel, we went to several lighthouses and charming towns in the area and found the best lobster spots. We can't wait for our return visit - and look forward to enjoying Rachel's homemade cookies again!

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

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Kennebec Inn! Everything from the moment we arrived was perfect. Rachel made us feel at home and provided recommendations for out in town and breakfast in the morning was delicious. It was just a quick stop for us on our way down the coast, but we will sure to be back!

Rachel is a wonderful host, who makes herself available to you if you need something, but otherwise stays in the background. The Kennebec Inn is absolutely spotless, well appointed inside and out (in ground pool!), and her breakfast was not only delicious but appealing to both my husband who has a very good appetite, and me, who is always looking for a healthy way to manage calories - and she satisfied us both. I would definitely stay here again, and can highly recommend this Inn to others.
