What a beautiful b & b! Great rooms, amazing breakfast, and the greatest dog greets you upon your arrival. We would make a special trip to Bath just to stay here, again. Thank you for a great start to our Maine vacation!

We loved our stay at the Packard House. Amy and Mark were great hosts---sufficiently attentive to our needs, but not intrusive. The house is immaculately clean. Our beds were turned down and a nice pitcher of ice water and sweets were waiting for us in the evening. The chalk menu board tempted you with a delightful selection of creations; there was always more than you could possibly eat. The house is within walking distance of downtown on a quiet side street (great for sleeping.) We will definitely be visiting again and again when we can get away. (We also run a small bed and breakfast ourselves so we can be a bit fussy---this not only met, but exceeded our expectations.)

It was the first B&B on our recent trip up-and-down coastal Maine. Despite the rain, it was our best stay. Beautiful home. Perfect restoration. Amy & Mark were the perfect innkeepers. Amy's apple cinnamon scones are reason enough to return to the Packard House.

I stayed in the Niagara room in this very pleasant old house, on two separate visits, on my way to and from Northern Maine. The hosts were extremely helpful in suggesting places to go and to eat, the room was wonderfully done, there were many thoughtful small touches, the breakfasts were ample and delicious. The resident dog was friendly (huge, but completely gentle). All in all, I highly recommend this Inn.

This was our first visit to Bath and our first stay at this B&B. The couple that lives in and runs the Benjamin F. Packard House goes all-out to make your stay perfect. Rooms are beautifully restored and updated. Bathrooms have top-notch fixtures, toiletries and super-soft water. Towels are thick and soft, too. One unique aspect of this home is the number of common areas that are available for hanging out: a sitting room, a separate TV room, and a beautifully-landscaped private backyard complete with outdoor seating and a fountain. And just when you think the hosts had done it all, they offer a full breakfast at the time of your choosing OR a continental breakfast that's available all morning. Upon check-in, we were asked if we had any special dietary needs. I'm diabetic, and the next morning--without making a big deal of it--I was presented with eggs and sausage while other guests dined on French toast. All thumbs up!

Room Tip: No in-room TVs, but there is a small widescreen in a dedicated TV room.

A recent experience in Bath, Maine, prompted me to write a hotel review for the first time. Our 2 night stay at Benjamin Packard B & B was delightful in every way. The room, dining area and kitchen were impeccably clean, the breakfasts were abundant and delicious and our hosts were friendly and incredibly accommodating. No detail was overlooked; there was even a binder provided with copious information about the area, including suggested beaches and parks to visit in the vicinity. Located on a quiet street in a tranquil neighborhood \, there was also complimentary off-street parking. We enjoyed browsing and shopping in the quaint "downtown" area which was within walking distance. We felt so comfortable, as if we had stayed with good friends.

We were utterly charmed by the Benjamin F. Packard house and our hosts, Amy and Mark Hranicky. Charming room, exceptionally clean and stocked bathroom, and a whimsical garden we seemed unable to leave. Afternoon tea in the garden was a must. We had a picnic one night just to enjoy the garden one more time. Breakfasts were beautifully presented and delicious--french toast one day, omelet another, and the poached eggs on the Inn's homemade toast was incredibly good.
Amy and Mark are friendly and professional at the same time. They were successful in helping all the guests find activities and attractions to meet their interests. Also helped by identifying restaurants and making reservations.
Love Bath, ME! Love the Benjamin F. Packard! We are sending our friends and can't wait to return. .
