After skiing at Sunday River, my husband and I spent two delightful nights at this homey B&B. The room was very clean and beautifully appointed. Laurence was a most gracious and accommodating host. Each morning, we enjoyed a full cooked to order breakfast with farm fresh local eggs, homemade granola and jams. Delicious! After returning from a day on the slopes, Laurence recommended good restaurants only steps away. After dinner, we enjoyed complimentary cordials in the inn's sitting room. We will return to the Holidae House on our next trip to Bethel.

Had the most pleasant stay at the Holidae House. Laurence and Marcia are very gracious hosts. Beautiful, warm cozy house with character. So nice to sit down in the living room after a day of skiing and help yourself to some port and homemade cookies and other goodies. The breakfast is delicious with variety of choices including Laurence’s homemade granola and French toast. I highly recommend the Holidae House.

Lawrence was a delight. A true gentleman, wonderful host and an exceptional cook. His french toast were simply outstanding. His hospitality was out of this world. If you are in the Bethel area I highly recommend that you stay at Austin's Holidae House. You will not be disappointed.

“Delightful weekend”
My husband and I stayed here intending to go skiing. There were lots of other activities in the area including snowshoeing and skimobiling and even dogsledding. Sunday River ski area is just a few minutes away. The B&B was beautifully appointed with a Victorian feeling and decor. We were lucky enough to try their "carpe diem" special (check out their web page) and the biggest room in the house was available. It was comfortable, nice beds and bedding, nice towels, and even the soap and shampoo was high end. In the morning breakfast was all made to order and delicious. The eggs from his own laying hens were amazing. The scones warm from the oven and homemade jams just topped off a perfect breakfast. There is a large sitting room to gather in in the evening with a game table and board games and there was even a self-serve tray of aperitifs. We had an unfortunate run-in with a tow truck when we were inadvertently illegally parked but Laurence made it up to us, even though we didn't arrive until after midnight and we were the ones parked illegally. Gracious, caring hosts go a long way towards making a weekend retreat wonderful.

The location was excellent because there were several coffee shops, restaurants and bars walking distance but not close enough to be noisy.

“Outstanding B&B”
Stayed here for 3 nights while skiing at Sunday River. Laurence is a very pleasant host, and made a perfect breakfast every day. Coffee was excellent, and they also have a large tea selection. Our room was charming, with plenty of antique furnishings. Am really happy we chose to stay here. Location is nice too: across from the supermarket, and within short walking distance to many restaurants in the center of Bethel. Would definitely stay here again.

“Wonderful B&B!”
My husband & I stayed here on a much-needed weekend getaway, and have nothing but wonderful things to say. We were in ME to ski, and the proximity of this B&B to Sunday River is just perfect. Plus, clean rooms, surprisingly quiet house (it was just about full when we were there, but you'd never have known it!), and a breakfast fit for royalty! Not only was the breakfast food delicious, but our wonderful host & hostess would leave amazing snacks throughout the day - a perfect greeting after a day on the slopes!
