Hectic schedules and professions led my two best friends and in scheduling a week-end at the Kismet Inn for rejuvenation, it was wonderful! We were also celebrating a birthday so Shadi was amazing at arranging a private yoga instruction a the most beautiful yoga studio that is in the top floor of the Inn which is an old refinished mansion...

October 2013 Oh My....I don't know where to begin. Let's start with Shadi, the lovely Kismet Inn Owner. As you pull into this B&B the outside does not lend itself to what you're about to behold inside....you will be immediately greated by the warm & instantly loving Miss Shadi who will envelope you in her gracious hospitality that Will surely...

Kismet Inn is in a convenient location, just up the block from Bath's main street. From the outside you see a Victorian house that doesn't look especially unusual; once inside, though, you find a beautiful, thoughtful renovation. We stayed in the Saffron room, one of the largest, with a comfortable bed, a seating area, and a fully tiled bathroom with... More

Great location for visit to Bath. The inn is well appointed with modern bathrooms en suite. Each room is beautifully decorated and the common areas are full of art and tasteful design. Organic breakfasts are included as are wonderful herbal teas. The inn keeper is kind and considerate providing excellent service. The only issue I had was the ringing of... More

I had to write this review, even though my girlfriend and I were unable to stay at the Kismet. We arrived in Bath (without reservations) after a long drive from Vermont. We checked out a couple of B&B's but they were either not our cup-of-tea or they were full. We decided to check out a third bed and breakfast but... More

health, love, friendship, and family. The Kismet Inn is the epitome of those things. The owner, Shadi, exhibits painstaking attention and joy in presenting a warm and unique Inn that emphasizes quality over short-term successes. For example, she cooks dishes with the finest of ingredients and balances the body's desire for something delicious with the body's need for energy and... More

The Kismet Inn offers so much more than your usual B&B and, by the end of my trip to Maine, the warmth and beauty of this place was exactly what I needed. My first impression of the Inn was immediate. Approaching it in my car I could see signs, from the outside, that the property had been completely and beautifully... More

I had always wanted to experience Maine but did not know where to begin our journey. After going to the B&B finder, I came across the KISMET INN. Reading the reviews, checking out the photos, and all that the INN offered, I knew right then that this was the place that I wanted to go to. The Inn offered all... More

Dear M. it was an absolute pleasure to have you and your beautiful girl at the inn. You are so right by the time you were leaving, it felt like family was visiting, my friend visiting from Paris asked about you when he called the other day. You have to come back so we can finish our backgammon game. Thank... More

I feel terrible writing this review. The owner (and by all accounts only employee) seems to really care. But that cannot overcome the fact that she is falling short in so many areas that it is hard to understand the prior reviews they have gotten. My wife and I along with another couple were very excited to visit the Kismet... More

Dear Mark, I am so terribly sorry you were unhappy. If your friend had asked me to get orange to make fresh orange juice I would have definitely done it. I did ask him if he wanted me to he insisted just water would be fine. If you had mentioned you wanted different options for breakfast for each one of... More

Stayed for two nights with my boyfriend at the Kismet Inn (July 2013). We chose the inn based on the outstanding tripadvisor reviews as well as it's proximity to beaches/hiking/Five Islands Lobster and the short drive from Boston area to Bath. The accommodations are lovely, a few of the highlights are: 1. Extremely comfortable beds 2. spa shower in the... More
