“Consistently wonderful!”
Reviewed December 2, 2011

I first stayed at the Kennebec Inn in 2009. This week I was delighted to return for my third visit. Rachel always welcomes me like an old friend. She cooks delicious, lavish, elegantly served full breakfasts and keep the inn spotless and cozy. The inn combines historic charm with modern comforts and coveniences, including wifi and some rooms have flatscreen tv. The beds are great. And Rachel could not be more helpful. It's also conveniently located near Maine Maritime Museum, Bath Iron Works and town. I'll definitely stay here again if my work (or vacation) brings me back to Bath.

Probably the best B & B experience of my life! Our host reinvented breakfast each of the four mornings we were there. And what extraordinary breakfasts they were! Wonderful settings inside and outside the house. We will surely return!

Room Tip: We had the smallest room, which was still huge and has windows on 3 sides. Bright, quiet and strateg...

Rachel is a very warm and gracious host. She is very knowledgeable about the Bath and mid coast Maine area. The inn is very clean and Rachel makes you feel like you are home. Breakfast like your grandmother used to make.

I had the opportunity to travel to Bath Maine for my job. I stayed three nights at this charming inn!. The room was tastefully decorated and extremely clean. The breakfast each day was homemade and absolutely delicious. Rachel was warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area. I hope to visit again soon!!!

Rachel, the innkeeper, makes you feel that you have known her forever. She sets such a nice tone at Kennebec Inn. And her breakfasts! Homemade with local ingredients, especially blueberries. I would highly recommend the Kennebec Inn. It made me feel good to stay there.

Rachel is wonderful. We really enjoyed our stay in the Captain Perkins room. It was comfortable, spacious and clean. The breakfasts were great. Glad we picked this one based on internet reviews. Highly recommend and hope to visit again.
