360 Front St. , Bath, ME 04530 USA (Show map)


This lovely Bed & Breakfast is a circa 1820 Federal-style home overlooking the Kennebec River in historic Bath, the "City of Ships", and just a few blocks from the heart of town. A classic New England house, it features an elegant double staircase, wide pine floors and fireplaces. There are two distinctive rooms, all having private baths. The Elizabeth Room, named after a previous owner, is decorated in a Victorian style and has a queen-size bed and spacious bathroom. The Tall Chimney Room, unusual with its exposed brick chimney, reflects a feeling of comfort and warmth. It has a queen-size bed, high ceiling, a 2-person Jacuzzi in its large bathroom and balcony to the outside. A convenient stopping-off point for visitors traveling on Route 1 or I-295, it's also located near historic Wiscasset, Popham Beach, Reid State Park, Brunswick Naval Air Station, Bowdoin College and the Boothbay area.

A quiet retreat.

A beautiful inn, with warm hosts, and a great breakfast. The inn is set in a quiet neighborhood of well kept homes. Our room, the Tall Chimney Room, had a nice balcony with a sitting area that was wonderful to use. Even their dog, a rescued greyhound named Wally, was friendly and welcoming. Can't wait to get back next summer.

Great but soft mattress

Pryor House is beautiful. We stayed in the tall chimney room which has an amazing bathroom with a big 2 person Jacuzzi. Unfortunately, the mattress was the softest I have ever felt. I just went to the website to see if other rooms have firm mattresses but they state the tall chimney room has "the firmest mattress in the house." The innkeeper, Gwenda, was delightful and very accommodating. She made a delicious breakfast (although I think my husband would have liked 2x the amount). She also made some nice cookie bars after dinner. We love the town of Bath as well. I highly recommend Pryor House unless you need a firm mattress!

Innkeeper Response
This mattress is a different mattress than the one previously stated on the website and is no longer the firmest bed onsite, which will soon be updated on our website. Sounds like our guests may have been better suited on one of our other beds. Thank-you for the nice breakfast review.......glad husband could have eaten even more.

Perfect B&B

This is a beautiful old home and Gwenda is the nicest lady and made our stay very pleasant. The way she serves breakfast is very special and her presentation of the food on the plate is outstanding!!!
