Mill Hill Inn
Ranked #2 of 16 Bethel B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 4, 2013

My daughter, my parents and I stayed at the Mill Hill Inn this past weekend, and the experience went beyond expectations. Woody, the owner, was present most of the weekend, and was engaging and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms were very nice, with comfortable beds and nice sized windows. Top marks go to the restaurant, where we had dinner both Friday and Saturday nights. The food was fantastic, with a wide selection and a good wine list. Saturday night there was a live singer/guitar player that added to the fun.

The location is very convenient to Gould Academy, where I had 7am breakfast Saturday morning - it was a 3 minute walk. I highly recommend Mill Hill Inn.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor, above the lobby area. I heard some activity downstairs up until abou...

We were shocked at the service of this B&B. Outstanding rooms, extremely cozy "family room", billiard room, and eating area. Innkeeper was very accommodating and made the greatest sweet potato and black bean quesadilla ever created. Outstanding beer and wine selection. Breakfast was the cherry on top. Coming from California, we will be back again, guaranteed.

We stayed in the Newry/Bethel Area for a wedding we were photographing – Maine Photogirls. As a fellow Mainer, we found this Inn to be really what we are all about here in Maine – Friendly, comfortable, laid back and relaxing. It was so wonderful- So glad we found this place! The Inn was easy to find and walking distance to downtown area. Our room was comfortable and cozy, we loved the feel of the Inn. Not stuffy, but like a home… It was also the BEST breakfast hands down included with a room we have had to date! And the dinner the night before was awesome too! And the Blueberry Margarita won an award this past year… it was very tasty. I highly recommend this great spot, clearly my new favorite nook in bethel area no matter the season. I will be back for certain!

We stayed here for skiing at Sunday River. Good location, not on mountain, but on free mountain explorer public shuttle route. Great for teens who want to be on their own schedule. Great ambience, leather couches, bar and wood fire in common area. live music on Sat night. Wonderful innkeeper, he changed his breakfast menu to satisfy our fussy sons. Thank you, Woody!

At night there is a small restaurant/bar. This is the absolutely the best food in Bethel! We have been coming here for years, have eaten pretty much everywhere in town, found most of he food merely "ok". But this is fantastic! Superfresh, reasonably priced, definitely made to order. Awesome.

No tv in rooms, this is a new experience for us, but we don't miss it due to excellent free wifi connection.

We have been up here for three weekends, stayed in different rooms each time, and the beds in each one are excellent. Even the morning coffee is extra good, served in beautiful handmade mugs.

The availability of the downstairs lounge would be great for parents of school age kids, leave the kids upstairs with pizza (which can be prepared inhouse) and enjoy a chance for grownup fun without leaving the building, no babysitter required.

Looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: The suites are a great option for families

Our family held a reception for about 50 people in December at the Mill Hill Inn. Woody, the inkeeper, and his staff exceeded all of our expectations. He assisted us in the planning and execution of the event, from decorations to menu selections to impeccable service. He also made available to us rooms at the Inn for the night (we did not end up needing them). The small plate dinners and tapas menu holds something for everyone, from vegan to carnivore, all served in the most inviting room in Bethel (no extra charge for a comfy seat by the wood stove fireplace!). We had hors d'oeuvres, dinner, dessert, and drinks and everyone was comfortable, well fed, relaxed, and exceptionally well served. This is a lovely place and we wholeheartedly recommend it for couples, families, and a reception of this size.

Our group of 5: 4 adults and one teenager, stayed together in one of the largest rooms. It was actually a huge space with multiple levels, 3 bedrooms,private bath and full kitchen. Price included breakfast for all 5 of us so it was great value for the money and very convenient for the first night of a long road trip. Lovely setting, right in town/walking distance to everything, yet surrounded by large lawn/gardens, beautiful old building, plenty of room to park, quiet, safe, friendly. Loved the on-site dining option with freshly prepared innovative small plate/sharing/tapas dishes and fantastic selection of wine and beer for supper and generous hot breakfast, served family style, all on beautiful hand made pottery dishes. Would definitley stay here again and have already recommend to others.

My husband and I stayed at the Mill Hill Inn last night for a last minute trip to ski at Sunday River. I found the inn on trip advisor and we decided to give it a try after reading all of the glowing reviews. We were not disappointed!! We arrived later in the evening, Woody and his wife were there to greet us and show us our room. The inn is beautiful, the room was nicely decorated, warm, and had the most comfortable bed!! Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Woody made us feel very comfortable. We will be back, and will tell all of our friends!
