My husband and I stayed at Holidae House Thanksgiving night after dinner with his family. We were greeted by John who immediately made us feel welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in the Iris Room which was lovely and comfortable. Next morning Jeanette made sure we had a good breakfast with a Dutch baby pancake... More

We were blessed to have found this Bed and Breakfast in Bethel, Maine. The owners were very welcoming and kind. The homemade treats were wonderful and they have a large selection of tea, as well as coffee, and hot chocolate available round the clock. There was even complimentary whiskey and Baileys available to top off that late night coffee. Breakfast... More

The friendship, hospitality and welcome we received was extra ordinary. The care and attention to detail was faultless and unmatched anywhere that we have stayed on this trip.

I would give the Holidae House B&B 6 stars if I could. The location is excellent, with a grocery store directly across the street. The house itself is very charming, comprising of Victorian era furniture and many other appealing nick-nacks. The rooms have Wi-Fi and cable TV, along with private bathrooms and showers. Without a doubt, however, the most appealing... More

This is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. The Inn is very quaint and cozy, the most wonderful made to order breakfasts and superb and attentive hosts. Rooms are very well appointed with period items. The town of Bethel is quite and safe and offers some great excursions in the local area.

Very nice B & B. John was very informative. Told us the history of the house. Told us what he had done to re-model the house, said still working on fixing up more. Breakfast was excellent, the cookies and Blueberry muffins were excellent also. John and his wife will bend over backwards to take care of their guests.!!!
