This was our third summer trip to Ogunquit and Wells in Maine, and by far our favorite place to stay was Holiday Guest House. This bed & breakfast is run by Patrick, who was the kindest host and extremely knowledgeable about the area. The B&B has 4 bedrooms, and we stayed in the Littlefield Room which was beautiful and super clean and comfortable. The colonial house is well decorated throughout, and the house has a private pool in the back. Patrick made delicious breakfasts, and we had the opportunity to eat homemade meals like challah french toast, tator tots, breakfast sandwiches, and omelettes. The location is very close to both Footbridge Beach and Ogunquit Beach, but you get to avoid the crowds and noise. We would highly recommend the Holiday Guest House if you are traveling to Ogunquit and Wells!

As an extensive business traveler, and a female who has traveled alone, I had to share how beautiful and SAFE I felt at this gorgeous B&B. Patrick has done a great job taking over this property and you can feel his pride for the property and the service he provides. And the Roosevelt room was just as beautiful in person as I saw on the website. I cannot wait to come back.

Patrick and Coco were great host’s, especially with our gluten allergies. Breakfast was amazing in the sun porch each morning. Patrick kept the coffee coming. The house and room are well appointed and decorated. The private pool and loungers are a nice touch. The B&B is close to everything. Wells & Ogunquit beach are within distance. Patrick will recommend restaurants and entertainment. We highly recommend the Holiday Guest House to others looking for a true B&B experience.

We booked our room last minute - we weren't disappointed. Although we were only staying one night, we were treated with a great visit - a warm, friendly host (thanks Patrick), a wonderfully clean and comfortable room, a fantastic breakfast, and even great weather. We will visit this area again, and when we do, we will be sure to stay here - next time for a longer visit.
