About

Innkeepers Kenneth and Rachel Parlin invite you to experience comfort and warm hospitality in their Bed and Breakfast, located in historic Bath, Maine. Providing many premier amenities of a luxury hotel, while balanced with the personalized treatment and service that only intimate lodging accommodations can provide, the Kennebec Inn has been the B&B of choice by guests of Bath, Maine for over eight years. This grand Italianate house was built in the early 1850's by Captain James B. Perkins during what was coined "The Halcyon Days of Bath." Captain James B. Perkins was a master mariner and held substantial investments in the Eastern Steamboat Company, of which Perkins was the initial director in 1869. The house was then sold in 1865 to Sea Captain Samuel B. Reed, who was later lost at sea in 1869. One hundred and fifty-five years later the house was purchased by Ken and Rachel where they meticulously restored it to its former beauty. For the past eight years years, they have been offering this bed and breakfast as your home away from home. Relax...you're at The Kennebec Inn.
