To Plan A Trip

May 2024

Try the Maine Tourist Office (207-289-2423) and the Bath Area Chamber of Commerce (45 Front Street, Bath, ME 04530/Tel: 207-443-9751) for information on seasonal events and local bed and breakfasts. I stayed at The Inn at Bath, which was furnished with antiques and offered a lovely river view. The Maine Maritime Museum (207-443-1316) is open year-round, and its boat tours run if the weather is decent (June through September primarily). Popham Beach and Reid State Park are within a few miles of Bath, while Freeport, the home of L. L. Bean, is only a short drive to the southwest (and is open twenty-four hours a day). Bath is a good place to head right after Labor Day, when the crowds are gone and the climate is likely to be gentle.

We hope you enjoy our work.
