The Pryor House is a charming B&B within easy distance of downtown Bath. We suggest you take the Kennebec River Cruise from the Maine Maritime Museum for a real treat. Breakfasts we're delicious and Gwenda is warm and friendly..

Everything about the Pryor House was wonderful. Beautiful and comfortable room, delicious breakfast, and Gwenda is a very warm and friendly host. Also a great location - 5 minute walk from Bath's small downtown, and there are also lovely places to jog among quaint residential areas. In my opinion, the best experience and value in the area!!

Pryor House B&B Rocks!

My wife and I stayed here while in Bath for business in May 2017. This place was exceptional! The rooms were amazing and comfortable. We stayed in the Chimney Room and it was nicely decorated and very well maintained. Mrs. Pryor was an awesome hostess! Her breakfasts were nothing short of outstanding. We would definitely stay there again!! Dr. Paul L. Ewell

Staying in Bath Maine?

My wife and I had a terrific stay at Pryor House B&B in Bath Maine this month as we looked about the area for a possible home purchase. The hospitality was first rate and the quality of the breakfasts was amazing. If you have a chance to stay there, Gwenda the Inn-keeper makes a wicked chocolate chip cookie...they appear in the room at bedtime as if by magic!.

Just lovely!

The care and service was wonderful; the Inn has delightful views of the Kennebec River where one can see the rising sun. Perfect experience in early March.

Lovely home and such great hosts!

Don and Gwenda were gracious and consummate hosts! Our room and breakfast were wonderful and we really enjoyed their company during our brief stay in Bath. Looking forward to spending a lot more time in the area...

Amazing breakfast at this adorable Maine BnB

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay here. The house was lovely, and the rooms charming. Gwenda was a very gracious hostess, and made the most amazing breakfasts each morning. I'd say restaurant quality, but I don't think that actually does her justice!

Beautiful house in historic neighborhood

Helpful, friendly hostess, beautiful house, nice guests. Room was small, but we opted for less expensive. Would be nice to have horizontal surfaces to put things.

Great Experience!

We stayed for two nights for the first part of our honeymoon. The downtown is within walking distance of the B&B and it's very cute/small. Breakfast was delicious every morning and Gwenda had helpful suggestions on things to do. It's also only a 20-25 min drive to the outlets/ LL Bean in Freeport.
