Built in 18 74 for Galen C. Moses, the house became an instant celebrity in Bath when Jim and Larry purchased it in 1994 to create a bed and breakfast. Departing from traditional local house colors, this Italianate structure was draped in the most vivid colors of plum, pink and teal, thus its nickname, 'The Pink House'. There are surprises throughout the house, from the elegant gardens and rooms filled with tasteful antiques to the full theater located on the third floor and once used to entertain officers from the near by Naval Air station during World War II. The house contains a number of spirits. Our ghosts, assuredly friendly, are likely to make their presence felt on a frequent basis. Early evening finds guests relaxing on the porches which surround the house or taking a leisurely stroll along the waterfront. Historic Bath invites the traveler to spend a few relaxing days strolling through the pleasant parks overlooking the Kennebec River of rummaging through the many antique stores on Front Street. Beach lovers will find two sandy state park beaches within a short drive. The nationally acclaimed Maritime Museum, The Chocolate Church or the Art Gallery of Bowdoin College furnish exciting diversions on a rainy afternoon while short drives to Wiscasset, Boothbay Harbor or Freeport (home of L.L. Bean) can satisfy every shopper's appetite.
These rooms have queen size bed, private bath and high ceilings. They are air conditioned and have ample sitting areas. Wi-fi, turndown service, antique decor, high-quality linens.

A remarkable place in all aspects. Adding to this: the two friendliest innkeepers in the world- they did everything for us. we would recommend this place to all. Words cannot explain how great it is - it has to be experienced!
We appreciate your positive comments and do hope that you will return soon. We so enjoy interacting with our guests throughout their stay but, especially, at breakfast where we can assist in planning your day and attempt to know you better.
