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.
Daily Breakfast: A full breakfast is served each morning and varies according to the cook’s mood. While juices, fresh brewed coffee and a variety of muffins are available for early risers and late sleepers, the full breakfast between 8:00am and 9:00am adds such entrees as walnut pancakes with orange sauce, mushroom or artichoke quiche, sour cream and chive omelets, banana bourbon french toast, crispy cinnamon waffles with Maine maple syrup. All entrees accompanied by honey/mustard sausages, turkey bacon, or sundried tomato and basil sausage. The entrees are always preceded by a fresh fruit presentation such as poached peaches with orange sauce, marinated grapefruit, or jeweled grapes.
