Built in 18 7 4 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.

Dear Larry & Jim, We have just returned to the wilds of Maine from a two night stay at your gorgeous home. You both have the skill of hospitality refined to art. Breakfasts were displays of culinary art. The tastes were sublime. We appreciated your suggestions as to where we might spend the day as well as your restaurant guidance. Such a treat to return to our beautiful room to find the bed covers turned down, the shades drawn and the lights on. We were touched by these kind gestures. It truly makes one feel welcome. We loved our conversations with both of you, always witty and enjoyable. Your restoration of this fine old property was clearly an act of love and can be seen in every space. May you both continue to find happiness in whatever you choose to do. Phil & Barrie Colbath Fayette, Maine
Thank you for this very positive review. You seem to highlight the areas that both Larry and I attempt to emphasize. We really look forward to your return.

Hosts Jim & Larry welcome their guests at this resplendent B&B full of delightful Victorian architecture and collectables, set amongst a peaceful gardened property. Their style and wit were exceptional and the meals were delicious. We were so pleased that they were dog-friendly, too.
