Greetings from Bowdoinham, Maine. I am Kathy Gallant, owner of the Village Guest Suite, and a Realtor with RE/MAX Riverside in the neighboring town of Topsham. I invite you to visit Bowdoinham and discover the picturesque village that I've been delighted to call home since 1995.

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.

                                                              could have been better

                                                              Russell R.

                                                              The directions to the village were great, no street address, could have just said next to town hall. Upon arrival, greeted by Kathy's husband, a little on the caustic side, did not offer to help with the bags upstairs. That was the last we saw of him and never did see Kathy (does she exist?) We were sort of abandoned for 3 days and nights, no access to ice, or a place to sit outside though there are 3 decks with no apparent access to them. We did not need the AC, but if we did , I would have had no idea how to use the mobile unit. The only store in town looked a little aged and shabby, we would not take a chance on eating there.

                                                              The suite was very clean and comfortable, but !!!!! There was no water view as stated. The yard was overgrown and no access to the florals. Saw the friendly dog one time on arrival

                                                              It was a good value, but to see or do anything, you needed to drive 9 miles minimum. If you are looking for a quiet retreat with little to do, this is the place, but I would not recommend it to any of our friends. Not meeting Kathy was a downer, one of the things we were looking for was to possibly purchase a 2nd home, but no realtor available. We did look with a Bath Realtor, but have not purchased as of now. She may have lost a sales opportunity. And as a NJ Realtor myself, I hate to pass them up

                                                              Russ & Rosemarie Regn, Mt Holly NJ

                                                              Great Small Town Charm.

                                                              My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights after flying into Portland. The drive is fairly short from Portland around 22-30 min and the town that this property in has a quaint little shop with breakfast/lunch/dinner right down the road which was a great starter for a long day of site seeing. Not being from the area the house was a little difficult to find and we ran into a few communication issues with the owner but all of that was quickly resolved. The house is very clean and like most Maine houses is very big but seems to have different areas of the house that are cut off from others, so you do have lots of privacy. The private bedroom does not have a TV in it but it connects to the private bathroom in the middle that then leads to a separate private dining and living room area with a dated TV - not a problem for us as we weren't there to watch TV it served the purpose just fine. This house is a older home so you will be able to hear people above you which is common in older establishments. Be aware that in the summer the sun rises at 4:58 AM and is very bright! The only thing that I would change to this room would be darker curtains in the bedroom area as it is impossible to sleep in with the bright sun- I did read this in another review so obviously this was not a deal breaker for me.

                                                              Always, clean and quiet

                                                              Always a pleasure!

                                                              We stay here often. The apartment is very nice, clean, homey and quiet. Kathy is a charming and accommodating hostess.

                                                              Clean and homey
