The house is a beauty, we could not have been more confortable. John and Jeanette made sure everything was perfect, their service and attention are insuperable. John kindly answered all our questions and made sure we had everything we needed. Jeanette makes the most delicious breakfast and baked gods! We love everything about this place. Maria + Claudio

My mother, sister, and our two college-aged daughters greatly enjoyed our stay at the Holidae House. From the lovely furnishings to John's very welcoming conversations to Jeanette's wonderful homemade sugar cookies and eggs benedict pastry breakfast, our stay was the epitome of our expectations for a B&B. We really appreciated the hospitality, comfort, and food. We highly recommend the Holidae...

I stayed here one night while visiting my niece who attends Gould Academy and it was a wonderful experience. The breakfast was incredible! This was my first time at a B&B and I'm excited to book my next trip to Bethel so I can stay here. My only regret is that I could only stay one night!

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Holidae House. The owners are very accommodating and the breakfasts were delicious. Our room was upstairs and had a full bath ensuite. A large closet was perfect for our luggage, jackets, etc. A corkscrew was on a tray with water and wine glasses. We had a small tv with lots of DVD's...

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...

When we arrived during mid-week in Bethel, we were the only guests that night. John immediately cleaned and upgraded us to the best room in the house.
