Really appreciated after a long bike ride up nearby Evans Notch! - Also much appreciated was the 'Full English' breakfast that Laurence cooked up - as well as home made... More

We visited the place for one night in our trip through NE USA. It was a very pleasant and nice stay where you feel at home and enjoy the great old English style. The owner is very friiendly and helpful to get around in Bethel.

This place is a combines the best qualities of an English country house hotel and a New England bed and breakfast. It's almost like visiting someone's home. We were there for two nights and really enjoyed ourselves.

Laurence was just the most delightful host whom engaged in conversation with us and made us feel right at home :) the room was spacious and beautifully decorated.

Bethel, situated near the Maine-New Hampshire border offers easy access to outdoor activities. We came for hiking and hoped that the B and B would be a great place to rest after a day with nature. It did not disappoint. The rooms are simple and well appointed with comfortable beds and plenty of towels. There is a spacious living room... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. Your descriptions were great! Some of the suggestions that you made cannot easily be accommodated in an historic building, but we will see what we can do. We are glad that you enjoyed yourselves. Do come again. More

We've stayed here before and we were happy to stop in again. Lawrence is a charming host who grills up a most perfect slice of french toast. We stayed here as a rest-stop on our way both to and from the coast. We do like the roomier bathroom of Room 2 over Room 7. The one missing piece is a... More

Austin's Holidae House B&B turned out to be a wonderful place to stay on our way up to Bar Harbor Maine. Laurence, the owner, greeted us on our arrival, and showed us to a wonderful room with private bath. He led us to a great restaurant a block away where we had the best seafood chowder. At night there was... More

Laurence is a delight and wonderful host. He makes you feel welcome and will do anything to make sure you have a good stay. The breakfasts are amazing (farm fresh eggs, homemade baked goods), rooms are clean and comfy. He goes the extra mile, telling you the best places in town to eat or visit. His recommendations are always top... More

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...

I made our reservation 5 months in advance. "All our rooms are available and are the same price, which one would you like?"
