About Us

In the center of Bethel, Austin’s HOLIDAE HOUSE offers comfort, convenience and value. This elegant, warm and inviting Inn has welcomed  generations of satisfied guests. Enjoy the warm atmosphere of western Maine, the charm of this historic village, and the comfort and hospitality of Austin’s Holidae House B & B.

Built in the early 1900’s the property was originally the home of a lumber baron and his family. Since then it has been a private home, a boarding house, a bakery and for the last 20+ years a Bed and Breakfast.  The rooms were decorated by Tom, the former owner and an interior designer.  All of the rooms reflect Victorian era colors,  and include hand-painted touches, as well as stained glass windows in several rooms.  All of the linens and towels are  100% cotton.

Our Inn’s location allows guests to walk to many activities and places of interest all year round.  You can enjoy the many activities the area offers, shop, dine… or simply relax, rest and read to your heart’s content. Guests can relax on the front porch or patio, in the living room or in their well-appointed rooms.
