Holidae House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 15 Bethel B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 March 2008

Read all the reviews on tripadvisor and went ahead and booked 3 nights at the Holidae House. The Inn bascially made our trip. Facilities were clean, cozy and welcoming; and the breakfast was just excellent. We were able to ski all the way through 3pm without having to stop for lunch.

The free shutle to the ski lodge is great and convenient and picks up about 7 feet from the Inn's front door.

Lawrence and Martia do their best to make you absolutely comfortable.

I'm already thinking of going back next year.

Laurence and Marcia are wonderful, gracious, generous hosts. We felt very much at home throughout our 3-night stay and felt like we were leaving old friends rather than innkeepers by the end. As others have noted, Laurence's breakfasts are a highlight, as are Marcia's scones and afternoon cookies. One of the things we're always looking for in B&B innkeepers is a good sense for gauging guests' wants and needs-- i.e., how much we do or don't want to hang out and socialize, whether we're interested in their recommendations or not, etc. Laurence and Marcia have great radar along these lines, which is a big part of what made it feel homey. Having been at other B&Bs where the hosts have either completely ignored us or hovered and wouldn't leave us alone, it's always great to find innkeepers who obviously know how to do it right.

A few details worth mentioning-- They have a wonderful parlor with a variety of games, books, crossword puzzles, and other distractions. It's definitely worth asking for recommendations for places to eat. There are some very good places to eat in the area, but also some seriously overpriced duds-- and more of the latter than the former. Laurence and Marcia can and will steer you in the right direction.

I stayed here at the recommendation of another inn in town--where I usually stay, but was full this time. What a treat! I love Laurence and Marcia, the room was great--comfortable bed and lots of space. It was very quiet and everyone was extremely accommodating. Laurence was fabulous with breakfast!!!! Everything was delicious, on time, and served with great courtesy and manners. I just love this place and will recommend it to anyone needing a place to stay in Bethel. Love it!!

One of the best weekend getaways that we have ever been on. The accomodations and hospitality were above expectation. The Inn keepers were like friends that we have not seen in years and treated us as such. The Holidae House is what makes Bethel Maine worth visiting. We loved every minute of our stay and plan to go back again soon. I would look no further than Austin's for lodging.
