The pets remain in the main residence, but those with severe allergies need to be aware of them. During the summer of 2016, there is construction going on at an abuttin property.)

Enjoy 'the way life really should be' in Maine, and stay in Bowdoinham, on beautiful Merrymeeting Bay: a rural town that is laid back & relaxed, and renown for its wonderful community. Described by Down East Magazine as 'A Very Crafty Town' (November 2008), it is comprised of many farmers, artisans, and musicians--and just plain-old-nice folks. Bowdoinham is convenient to Bath/Brunswick; Portland; Augusta; Lewiston/Auburn; and to all that Midcoast Maine has to offer.
Bowdoinham Village is absolutely beautiful--a classic New England Village. The Cathance River flows through town, and to Merrymeeting Bay. A canoe is available to explore both, or bring your kayaks.
My son and I stayed in this rental for 2 nights, looking at Maine colleges. Location of rental is quiet, but not near any facilities (restaurants etc). Weather was hot when we were there- living room area had portable AC, but bedroom had ceiling fan only. Unit was very private. I slept on sofa bed in living room- sun was bright in morning- might consider darker curtains.
Overall, I recommend staying here if you have a car and are visiting this region of Maine. It is quieter and larger than a hotel, but need to drive to nearest town (maybe 10-15 min) for restaurants, shopping etc. Unit was very clean and well appointed. Owner was very responsive over the phone- did not meet in person.
We spent three nights at this property. We were visiting family in the area so left early in the morning and returned later in the evening. The dining area was equipped with a refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, and toaster so we could have easily prepared breakfast and snacks. Comfortable bed and well furnished bath.
We would definitely recommend this property to others.
Very nice, comfortable suite. The owner's husband was a little curt when speaking with my husband one evening. There was a misunderstanding about using the front entrance and my husband rang the doorbell which seemed to upset the owner.
We've stayed at Kathy's twice and will be back. It's private and bucolic. This charming apartment is furnished for comfort and with great taste.
A short walk and you're at the Town Landing restaurant where we had a few breakfasts and lunches. It's a short drive to Brunswick and it's restaurants and attractions such as Bowdoin College. It's a mere 40 minutes from Portland with its vibrant restaurant scene and entertainment. Bath is about 30 minutes away. There is so much to see and do in the area.
Kathy is a warm welcoming host. This is so much better than anything else in the area at this price point.
We stayed in the Bowdoinham Village Guest Suite on three separate occasions over the summer. Off the beaten path, it is a quiet, lovely, charming place to stay. It is nicer and more spacious than any hotel room. It is tastefully decorated and kept very clean. Kathy is a friendly and welcoming hostess. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area.
The house was great. Ceiling fans are very welcome. The sitting area was spacious and relaxing and they had a portable a/c unit which helped as the temps in the 80s would warm the house. Access to the house from the freeway is very straightforward. Bowdoinham is very small, but very nice. The owner was very responsive.
