The Inn at Bath
Ranked #4 of 6 Bath B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 August 2010

My partner and I knew little about the Inn other than the reviews and while they were generally positive, it's always hard to read between the lines. Well, after spending a couple of days there we can't see how anyone could expect more than the Inn at Bath delivers, particularly at a very reasonable price. Our room, the Fo'c'sle, was roomy and clean, had a comfortable Queen bed, and had a huge jacuzzi tub and fireplace. There's even a quiet garden sitting area right outside. Elizabeth, the inkeeper, is a gem and had great recommendations on local restaurants (try Solo Bistro and Kenebec Tavern) as well as places to explore. She even arranged on our last morning for a blueberry pie we needed to take to friends in Boston. She also cooks a great breakfast (make sure she makes you blueberry pancakes). We'll be back.

Why this place is not ranked number one of the Bath B & Bs is a bit hard to figure out. Sort of causes me to wonder about the rankings. If clean, quality accommodations coupled with an excellent host and an above average B & B breakfast is what you’re looking for this is your best bet.

We arrived in Bath without a place to stay. Stopped in a local tavern (The Kennebec) for a few beers and some food and asked the bar tender and a few local patrons in the bar for a recommendation. They pretty much all recommended The Inn at Bath and a few went a bit further to provide details on other B & Bs in the area that pretty much sealed the deal on this place. So we showed-up on a Friday afternoon about 5pm without a reservation. Elizabeth, the Inn keeper, was immediately accommodating and within minutes we were in the room…The Fo'c'sle (pronounced folk-sul, I think)…. a great room on the garden level. A nice sized room, comfortable queen bed, good linens, a fireplace stocked with wood and set for a fire…just light a match basically. The room also has an in-room Jacuzzi tub perfect for a soak. There is a separate bathroom with a good shower, sink, toilet and even a bidet if that’s your thing. There is a TV and collection of DVDs available if you want to relax in the room and watch a movie. This room also has a separate entrance if you want to come and go as you please.

The rest of the inn has a good bit of common area with plenty of sofas and chairs if you want to relax but not be confined to your room. There is also a good selection of books on hand if you need something to entertain yourself. The location is also really good. You can walk to the center of town in 5 mins and she has plenty of parking so you can park your car and walk.

When you check-in Elizabeth asks you about breakfast requirements and timing. Breakfast was great and she made eggs to order for us. There was plenty of food, good coffee and juice. Definitely, not the traditional continental breakfast offered at many B & Bs.

If you’re in Bath this is the place you want to stay.

The Inn at Bath provides your quintessential NE B & B experience with the added pleasure of a jacuzzi and fireplace in some of the rooms, wireless service, and a very fun and savvy innkeeper. Our two breakfasts were delicious, our room quiet and comfortable, and who can resist throwing the ball for a friendly dog named Atticus? Elizabeth is the perfect host, personable and professional. Bath is a fun town; we enjoyed the Friday night ArtWalk, featuring local artists, and the Saturday morning farmer's market. We will return!

When I moved to Maine little did I realize that I'd often play innkeeper myself. My family suddenly thought of my home as a vacation spot... when my entire family converges on Bath I will happily put overflow guests at the Inn At Bath.

Every one of them has raved about the accommodations. The rooms are luxurious and private with clean modern bathrooms.

The best review though may come for the breakfasts and the relaxed atmosphere.

I find Elizabeth (the innkeeper) to be charming, friendly and fun.

This place could change the way you view staying at a B & B.

Inn at Bath is a quintessential New England inn on a major street a short walk from downtown Bath. It's worth taking a stroll around town just to look at the homes of the former sea captains and enjoy the ambience. The inn itself is spacious and comfortable, and innkeeper Elizabeth was very hospitable both on the phone when we made the reservation and during our stay. She directed us to a really good restaurant down on the river where we had an excellent seafood dinner.
Since my daughter went to Bowdoin I had been to Bath a number of times, but had never stayed there. I'm glad we did and we will return to the Inn at Bath.

Driving through mid-coast Maine on our way further down the coast, we had only one night to stay at the Inn at Bath. It was enough time, however, to enjoy a charming room, stunningly decorated common rooms, and a delicious breakfast in an exquisite dining room. Elizabeth, the innkeeper was very friendly, and helpful. We arrived at dinnertime in a rainstorm, and after check-in, she quickly secured a much appreciated dinner reservation for us at a good local restaurant. Our short stay was enjoyable, and I would recommend this inn to others.
