I recently returned from a stay at the Rostay (september), and I finally found time to log on to tripadvisor to leave my review. I always read the reviews of other travelers, and I was surprised at seeing that the Rostay had received a negative review. We have stayed at the Rostay quite a few times in the last ten years, and we've always had a great holiday. The rooms are very cute, with quilts on the beds, and adorable little pillow covers. I am a clean freak, and I've never had an issue with cleanliness there. The rooms are always very neat, and tidy, and the bathrooms are always clean.
The Rostay is kind of different from other places I have stayed at. It's set up like a roadside motel, with all the privacy and convenience of such a place. That being said, it also has the ambiance and extras that you expect in a New England Bed & Breakfast. I've never seen a handmade quilt in a room anywhere except a B&B, before! The hot tub is wonderful after being outside all day, and the breakfast is terrific! Bethel is a small town, and when tourist season begins, well, there are only so many places around town that serve breakfast, and they fill up fast! How wonderful to stay at a place that offers it right there...you've GOT to try the chocolate chip pancakes! Yummy!
Bethel is a great spot. There's a ton of hiking to be done right there (not to mention a bunch of other outdoor activities), and there's alot of stuff, nearby. Mount Washington is only about half an hour away, the shops in North Conway about 45 minutes (for us girls), and the big LLBean store about two hours. It's nice because even in the busy seasons, it stays small. It's not like going into Lincoln, NH or Freeport, Me, where there's just people and stores everywhere! It's still quiet. Like you want Maine to be! Almost every fall we find a way to get to Bethel, whether for a whole week, or just a long weekend. We've stayed at the Rostay many times, and we'll definately be going back! Please don't be afraid to give this place a try! I truely think you'll be pleasantly surprised!
