This B&B is fantastic!
Located in the centre of Bethel, the Austin Holidae House is a beautiful and cozy place. We (German couple, 30 and 32) spent four nights in room 1 (second floor). The room is nicely decorated and has a big comfortable bed and a small bathroom.
The breakfast is absolutely amazing. Every morning, Laurence or Marcia asked us what we wanted for breakfast - plain pancakes, pancakes with blueberries, French Toast, scrambled eggs, bacon or no bacon - you name it. There was granola, fresh fruit, cereals, freshly baked goods, home-made jam, Coffee, Tea, juice... Everything tasted wonderful.
On our three-weeks trip through New England we have stayed in a few B&Bs which are almost as nice as the Austin's Holidae House - but none that is run by such extraordinary amiable and friendly hosts. Let us give you an example or two: One morning at breakfast we asked Marcia for Cranberry juice. There was none, so later that day we got our own bottle. When we asked Laurence if we could put it in the fridge in the kitchen, he said "Of course, but let me show you something." He then led me to the fridge and showed me the bottle of Cranberry juice he had just bought - it was the best the Bethel supermarket had on sale.
Not to mention the small choice of chocolates we found everyday when returnig to our room in the afternoon...
To sum things up, Austin's Holide House is a rolemodel for B&Bs, and Marcia and Laurence are the nicest hosts you can imagine.
