“Attention to every detail”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

This B&B is meticulous, every public space, the garden/patio space, and the room. Décor is very interesting, eclectic, lovely. There are just 4 bedrooms so crowding anywhere does not happen. The breakfast room could seat all guests at once, or if different breakfast times are chosen, each separately. We stayed in the Downeaster, a one night stop on our trip to Lubec. The room is the smallest with just one chair, but the downstairs sitting rooms and outdoor patio allow comfortable seating. The bath is spacious. Tea was served at 4:30 with light snacks. A pitcher of ice water awaited when we returned from dinner, just down the street at the Kennebec Grille. Breakfast was wonderful. Homemade granola and blueberry lemon scones were delicious, and cooked to order French toast special. Amy was a very nice host. We spent part of our morning in the patio, reading newspapers, before hitting the road. Highly recommend.

We have stayed in lots of B&B's, and this one is a stand out. The owners, Amy and Mark are friendly and personable, but extremely professional. The house is beautifully restored and creatively decorated and furnished with lots of antiques and interesting pieces. It is SPOTLESS! The breakfast was homemade and delicious, and the service was comparable to a five star hotel. The Maritime Museum is a great place to visit while in Bath. We highly recommend this B&B!

recently stayed for 3 nights at this wonderful b&b in a wonderful part of the world. the innkeepers, amy and mark, are knowledgeable and extremely amiable, as are their two rare breed pups. the breakfasts are all homemade, including the granola, and are beyond yummy. the rooms are lovely and all of the shampoos, conditioners, and lotions are eco friendly. bath is a delightful community...quintessentially new england. you'd be hard put to find a nicer place to stay in mid-coast maine.

Green Features: as i mentioned in my overall review, all of the products in the rooms are totally eco-friendly.

From the moment we stepped through the door and were greeted by Amy we felt completely at home. She gave us a tour of the common areas, assuring us that we should feel free to enjoy all areas. The room was beautiful. It is apparent that Amy is quite talented with her decorating and all of the little touches made it all so special. We were interested in seeing some of the local architecture and were provided with a walking map and a recommendation for a lobster pound that was more than worth the 1/2 hour drive. Amy has true sense of hospitality and of course the breakfast was incredible as well - even had fresh raspberries from her garden. I loved that the yogurt had just a touch of sweetness as well. We would highly recommend this B and B and would certainly return if we found ourselves in Bath again.

Room Tip: We had the lowest priced room and can't imagine how nice the others were. We were thrilled with...

Green Features: I have never seen so many with environmentally friendly practices with a recycling basket (wicker) in the bedroom and eco friendly shampoo and receipts are emailed.

Modernized enough to be comfortable (bathroom tiled & fixtures work well, window a/c, found enough outlets for charging phones, wifi worked, etc.); comfortable bed; excellent breakfast; off-street parking; pleasant host. We didn't spend much time in Bath, but noticed that there are a number of beautiful old homes. Some day we'll get back for another look.

Room Tip: Did not see one that would be less desirable.

I can't tell you how much I loved my stay at the Benjamin Packard House. Our room was cozy and delightful, our breakfast was delicious and prepared with the utmost care (everything from the granola to the breakfast quiche was homemade), and the B&B was just beautifully decorated - it felt as if I had stepped into a Pottery Barn Catalogue but instead of new furniture from Pottery Barn the pieces were antique. The owner provided us with water and chocolates in our room in the evening as well as turned on the air conditioning for our arrival. We were asked for our breakfast preferences upon arrival and the owners made us feel as if we were at home.

Although the town of Bath lacks tasty restaurants and much to do, this B&B is definitely worth a visit for a night. It is easy to get to beaches and other areas in Midcoast Maine from this location.

2 thumbs up.

We had come to Bath to experience that 'close, hometown' feel of Heritage Days. We stayed in the Garden room. It was unusually warm for Maine, and we appreciated the pitcher of ice cold water in our room every evening when we returned from a day of festivities. It was an easy walk to downtown Bath, were many activities take place.
Our hosts, Amy and Mark had some helpful suggestions on what to see as well as how to enhance the experience. "It's been rainy this past week. You may want chairs to sit on for the concert." They had prepared a folder of things to do and see.
Mark. a lover of trains, told my husband about the Small gauge RR the Wiscassett, Waterville & Farmington Railway Museum. Be sure to stop at the Flea Market on the way to the RR.
The breakfasts were a great start for a day of sightseeing. Amy's scones and Marks selection of fresh fruits were the best!
What a treat to sit in the garden and be greeted by their 2 wonderful dogs.
We enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend this B&B. Thank you, Amy and Mark.
