“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

B&B's are our first choice when traveling and Benjamin Packard House ranks in our top five. We stayed here with another couple on July 25, 2013 on our way from Portland to Bar Harbor. The inn was very comfortable and Amy was very hospitable and helpful. Our breakfast was excellent but extremely filling - so we were too full for lobster rolls when we arrived at Wiscasset and Red's Eats. We stayed in the Garden Suite. The rooms were comfortable and spacious except for the bathroom which is very small. I would highly recommend this inn. I only wish it hadn't been raining so that we could take advantage of the beautiful landscaped garden area outside the kitchen and living areas.

Only stayed one night at the BFP House but our experience was wonderful and regret we didn't stay longer. Of all the B&B's we stayed at in Maine, Amy wins the purple ribbon for her first class breakfast. In fact, it was the best breakfast we have ever had at any B&B in the US! We stayed in the Garden Suite and it was very comfortable. Our experience was nothing but positive and would highly recommend!

We stayed three nights at the Packard House and loved the house, the food, the hosts and their dogs. Truly were the best breakfasts I've ever had. House is very comfortable and our room was so charming. I would highly recommend.

"She's shipshape and Bristol fashion" was a seafarer's high compliment about a ship in the days of sail and certainly fits Packard House. Just couldn't have been a better respite after nine hours driving.Beautifully maintained, with a welcoming garden patio full of subtle and delightful touches. Amy and Mark were terrific hosts and breakfast was scrumptious, featuring home baked breads and Amy's delicious granola. Amy's recommendation of restaurant JR Maxwell's for dinner was a winner.

there's two reasons Packard House is number 1....Amy & Mark....
there's such love & caring, combined with Amy's exquisite taste & extraordinary culinary skills,
and their two bergamasco sheep dogs which simply set this B&B apart from all the rest.....
the house has great bones & is tenderly & thoughtfully cared for.
i spent this summer travelling & staying in B&Bs throughout maine & massachusetts, and this was, indeed, the creme de la creme!

We found this wonderful B&B through Tripadvisor and the reviews really lived up to our expectations. Amy and Mark own a beautiful house in a very quiet road, but within walking distance of the quaint almost English looking town with many nice restaurants. The rooms were spotless and the the whole house is decorated to an exceptionally high standard. Afternoon tea with homemade cakes and cookies were on offer upon our arrival; all of which were delicious. We had a lovely night's sleep followed by a wonderful home cooked breakfast and good conversation with the other guests. Our stay was worth every penny as the attention to detail made all the difference.

Room Tip: We chose the Niagara room which had a nice view of the other lovely houses in the quiet road. The ba...

We happened upon Bath and are so glad we did! This historic-house B&B was fantastic: very lovely, extremely quiet (it's located on a peaceful back street of Bath, yet is only a 5-minute walk to the center), and elegant/tasteful rather than kitschy as so many B&Bs unfortunately are... Our fantastic hostess, Amy, was never in the least intrusive, yet always kind and helpful; and she made us a delicious home-cooked breakfast (goat cheese & asparagus quiche with herbs from her garden, fresh blueberries, raspberry coffee cake...) and let us play with her two adorable dogs in her beautiful back garden. We plan to return to Bath, Maine from Italy just in order to stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay, Amy!
