We decided on Austin's Holidae House based upon the many positive reviews on this site. We were very happy and fully agree firsthand after our one night stay. Laurence was a great source of local recommendations and served an outstanding breakfast. My wife and myself traveled by motorcycle and will definitely return again when visiting the Bethel area. A real...

Laurence and Marcia are wonderful hosts. They maintain a lovely B&B with comfortable rooms decorated in the Victorian style. The location couldn't be better- right on the main street of charming Bethel. Marcia's morning scones and afternoon cookies served with an extensive selection of teas are an added treat. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for one night, and were really made to feel at home. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was one of the best we've ever had. The homemade french toast and granola were both hits. I'll be recommending this B&B to all my friends and family.

We had a lovely evening at the Holidae House after a recent summer camp drop-off. Laurence was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable right off. We were happy to relax in the living room (with a plate of freshly baked cookies) where we met and chatted with another couple. Our room was very clean and spacious, as was our...

We did not know what to expect in Bethel but the B&B was one of our favourites and Laurence, the owner, is a diamond. Get yourself down to Sud's Pub in the evening for a friendly chat with Scott the owner.

We only stayed one night at this quintissential New England home but were made to feel very comfortable. All the rooms are clean, spacious and with good quality beds and linen. There is a large comfortable lounge with complementary drinks - much appreciated, cheers! Breakfast is freshly cooked to ones own liking. We were especially pleased to be present when...

On this late June week-end, we discovered the charm and warmth of Bethel in Maine as we were coming to the New England country side. Coming from Montreal, we had planned to meet our son who is working in the area for the summer and do a little hiking as well. All we were looking for was a nice and...

Stayed at the Holidae House back in Feb. on a ski trip up to Sunday River. It was the perfect location and the accommodations were great. The inkeepers & owners Marcia and Laurence are worth the trip alone! I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Laurence, I'm hope your chickens got a bit of a breather after I left, sorry...

Our one night stay at Austin's Holiday House was very enjoyable. From the moment we arrived we were received by Laurence with charm and friendliness. We were made to feel at home and our room was clean, fresh, roomy and had all the touches to make you feel special (e.g. Wine glasses, bottle opener, night light in the bathroom). Breakfast...
