Details for Galen C. Moses House

Surrounding Area

Historic Bath invites the traveler to spend a few relaxing days strolling through the pleasant parks overlooking the Kennebec River or 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. And speaking of appetites, the restaurants in the area serve marvelous seafood on tables overlooking the great bays and charming coves.


Built in 1874 for Galen Clapp Moses, the house became an instant celebrity in Bath when Jim and Larry purchased it in 1994 to create a bed & 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 theatre located on the third floor and once used to entertain officers from the nearby Naval Air Station during World War II. The house contains a number of spirits, other than the sherry served at 5:00pm. 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.

A full breakfast is served each morning and varies according to the cook's mood. While juices, coffee and muffins are available for early risers and late sleepers, the full breakfast between 8:00am and 9:00am adds fresh fruit and such things as blueberry pancakes, mushroom quiche or sour cream and chive omelets.


The rooms within the house are large and reminiscent of the 19th-century grand Victorian style. The warm glow of the fire in the library with its built-in shelves and leather upholstered seats, the splendor of the paneled dining room with its fireplace and original appointments and the brightness of the formal parlors where frequent entertainment was the trademark of the Original owners -- all are relaxing areas for the traveler who stops to spend some time in historic Bath.

Upstairs are the sleeping accommodations which continue the uniqueness of this home.

The Victorian Room contains bay windows with panoramic views of Washington Street, a street listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This lovely room contains a queen-sized bed and a white marble fireplace.

The Moses Room contains twin beds with its own antique washstand and the original plaster frieze on all four walls.

The Vintage Room looking out on historic Washington Street, has high ceilings, an antique double bed, an original washstand and lots of light.

The Maple Room has a canopy bed which looks out on the Maple front fireplace and original marble sink. The frieze of scallops and seaweed compliment a subtle nautical theme in this room.

All rooms have private baths.
