My wife and I stayed there recently while trekking thru Maine. After one night, we wish we had scheduled more time to stay. Amy and Mark were extremely hospitable, but it was Amy's decorator's eye and attention to the little details that put this place above ALL the B&B's we have stayed in across the U.S. JUst as others have spoken of, the simple thing of having an ice cold pitcher of fresh water for the night, especially after a day of exploring, becomes such a big thing to you. We loved her afternoon tea in the well manicured garden, and visiting with her pups My only disappointment was their refusal of an additional $50 dollars we wished to add to our bill as a tip for the joy of staying with them! .

Spent a night here in July. Very enjoyable stay! The house is beautifully restored, the owners are friendly and attentive, and the breakfast was delicious. We highly recommend this B&B.

This B&B is the most welcoming one we have stayed in and we have stayed in many. If you want a special place that offers wonderful touches to make you feel extremely pampered, this is the place. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we have planned a return trip. Can't wait to see the gardens that Amy has created.

Amy and Mark Hraniky are wonderful hosts! The rooms are lovely; beds are turned down in the evening, a pitcher of ice water is on the dresser (and some chocolate covered Maine blueberries!) If you need any info re: Bath, a folder filled with things to do and places to see is also convenient...Cozy! But the breakfasts! Oh my! You'll just have to experience them for yourselves! Oh, did I mention tea time at 4:30? After that, you can go to any number of Bath restaurants - all about a half mile away so walking is an option. A great place to stay!

We enjoy our visit very much. The breakfast was excellent, and Mark and Amy had many good suggestions on places to eat and things to do in Bath. We had a great visit with Lupi, the welcoming greeter dog. My wife and I have stayed at many BandBs, and the Benjamin F. Packard House ranks among the best.

We love walking around town past the many historic homes and buildings of Bath. One of our favorite places is Reid State Park with its rocky shore and great beach.
