Dunn Guest House

College Guest House

  • 40 Mountain Avenue
  • Renovated 2001

Standing next to historic Libbey Forum and christened in honor of Robert Dunn ’50, L.H.D. ’99 and Gladys Bovino Dunn ’51, the 19th-century farmhouse has become the first ever Bates College guest house.

The three-floor house offers five guest rooms for special visitors, including honorary degree recipients, acclaimed speakers or performers, and other friends of the College. A three-room common space dominates the first floor, while the second floor features three bedrooms. The third floor features a suite of rooms. A handicapped-accessible room will adjoin the main building on the first floor.
