About Linda Martenson
My husband and I live in California, but Maine is our summer home. I am a teacher in California, and we plan to one day retire in Maine. We currently have three properties in Maine, and The Doll House is our special, seasonal rental. We hope you'll love it as much as we do!
Linda Martenson purchased this House in 2013
Why Linda Martenson chose Bath
Aside from teaching, restoring homes and antiques is my passion. This home was purchased, renovated and decorated with loving care. It provides a special place for guests to unwind after sightseeing or as a home base for all the activities in the surrounding area. A large, private yard is perfect for a relaxing evening. Sit on the glassed-in porch with a cup of coffee or a glass of cool lemonade. Take a ride on the beach cruisers downtown and enjoy a picnic on the waterfront or a latte at Cafe Creme. A cottage is the perfect place to experience this picturesque New England town. If you dream of staying in a cottage like those you see in magazines, this is it!
What makes this House unique
This property has all the amenities of home and is within walking distance to walking trails, downtown shopping, restaurants and more. It is centrally located where guests can easily reach many darling mid-coast beach towns along the coast or on neighboring islands.

Cute house that is roomier than it appears from the outside
Perfect location and size for our graduation weekend event. All the amenities were as listed and everything was present and in excellent working order with instructions so we had no questions at all during our stay.
Perfect house for four guests!
Wonderful house! Clean and neat, with upbeat and comfortable decor. Stairs were a bit steep for my bad knee, but I managed. Very responsive host.
Wonderful, quiet vacation spot
We've been here several times and it is always clean, well-maintained, and well-stocked. This was our first time visiting in the colder months and the house was warm and comfortable. It is just a short walk into town, and very easy to get to Route 1 to travel to other spots around the coast.
Clean and homey, hosts are delightfully generous.
Two clergy people and our spouses + one teenager, coming together for a Thanksgiving weekend to relax before the very busy season of Advent/ChriStmas. It worked! There were condiments in the cupboard, lots of towels, and table linens, bake ware, pots and pans (we brought our own roaster). One small whine, and we forwarded, but there is no bathroom on the second floor. But, we would go back-so not a big enough issue. Beautifully decorated. Thank you for sharing with us.
Very sweet and clean place
The owner is easy to communicate with and very responsive. The house is really nice and everything well maintained and lovely.
Good Times at the Doll House!
This was our second time, as guests, at the Doll House and it was just as warm and welcoming as our first stay! The home is very comfortable and charming. The décor not only lends itself to a relaxing and restful visit but Linda and Carl provide all of the details and amenities to make your stay feel just like home. Three of our family members spent the weekend and they were delighted with the cozy and comfortable home. We love that Bath is a walkable city. We did dine out most evenings at local restaurants in Bath but the kitchen is well equipped to cook and enjoy meals at the home.
The Doll House is in a perfect location and only a short distance to other charming and quintessential Maine towns. Maine offers fun and enjoyable experiences for all ages because of its' beautiful parks, scenic beaches, excellent museums and quality restaurants.
We love the Doll House!
Thank you Linda and Carl for your warm hospitality. It is greatly appreciated. We look forward to our next stay at the Doll House.
