“Golf School at The Bethel Inn Resort in Bethel, Maine”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

What an amazing trip! Working with PGA Class A Professional Harry Andrews has changed my game and my belief in my ability to grow in this sport. Harry is a superb instructor--mixing a serious approach with just the right dash of humor and fun. I am now driving the ball with consistency and confidence. The video tape analysis Harry provided enabled me to see and correct my errors. The course is lovely and the rates are quite reasonable for this all-inclusive stay (food is yummy!). I will definitely return for many more golf vacations. If you go my advice is to request Harry Andrews as your teaching pro!

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was welcoming and extremely accommodating. Our room was was very comfortable, with a lovely fireplace. The food was superb. The waffles for breakfast were awesome. Having a year round heated pool made it even more enjoyable.

Room Tip: The rooms in the Chapman wing are especially nice.

My husband and I have been coming to the Bethel Inn for the past 9 years or so and can't seem to get enough of this quaint and fairy-tale like facility. As a matter of fact we love this place so much that we purchased a time share there for the week of the New England Couple's tournament held annually in August so that we always have a place to stay when we participate in this highly anticipated tourney. The personnel are super friendly, the golf course is very well-maintained, Mark the golf pro is awesome and the mountainous views are fabulous. The restaurant and tavern food are scrumptious, and the amenities of the pool, sauna and fitness center are nice as well. I would highly recommend the Bethel Inn as a destination for a vacation because there is lots to do in the area such as hiking, skiing, swimming at the Bethel Inn Beach House or just a serene place to savor the day. Rooms are comfortable and newly refurbished this past spring. Keep up the great work, it is one of my favorite places in the world to be.

Room Tip: Rentals on the golf fairways are awesome, particularly the Millbrook condos.

My husband and I went to golf school in April. The Inn didn't tell us that the formal diningroom doesn't open until after Memorial Day so we ate in the bar every meal. Ugh. We got a suite, the room was awful. My husband was afraid to sit on the sofa because it had no springs. Golf School instructor, Ed, was fantastic though. Ask for him specifically because other instructor didn't seem like he made his group very happy.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the condos, they are really nice.

My family and I have been coming here for close to 20 years now, and we can't wait every year to come back. We come here 2 to 3 times a year and love it evey time. We are always treated like royalty. The whole staff, from the owner, Dick Razor to the waitstaff and even house keeping, are all so amazing and helpful in any way they can. The golf course is always kept up so nicely, and what a great way to spend our morning and afternoon. The food is out of this world. In all the years Ive never had a bad meal. We have always stayed in the condos alongside the 1st hole and they have always been kept up, and always a comfortable stay. Thank you to all of you at The Bethel Inn for all these great years that you have taken great care of all of us during our stay. Look forward to seeing you next May... :)

Room Tip: The townhouses and the condos are definitely the way to go.. They are all very nice.

My last visit to the Bethel Inn was over 20 years ago and I was really looking forward to revisiting this fall. Little has changed since my first visit, and that's not a good thing. A picturesque setting, charming exterior, good food and very friendly staff cannot overcome the overwhelmingly poor room product. Ownership does not appear to have spent capital on room upgrades over the past two decades. I had the recent unfortunate experience of staying on the first floor of The Oaks, a buiding located behinid the main Inn. The room was quite large and clean, but failed in every other measure. The furniture was dark and old, worthy of a college frat house. A pre-flat screen TV sat in a badly chipped and damaged console. The decor was spartan and dark, with maroon blackout curtains, dark green sofa, chair and bedspread. The bedding was terrible--thin pillows and mattress and a fake headboard tacked to the wall. Lighting was insufficient and dim; only four lights were scattered throughout the room and there was only one bedside table next to a kingsized bed. Only the vanity lighting was bright; the separate toilet and shower room was dark. The whole interior effect was reminiscent of a roadside motel from 40 to 50 years ago. To add to the ambience, sound insulation between rooms was non-existent. I awoke in the middle of the night to the sound of rushing water--someone had flushed a toilet and the drainage pipes were in the wall by the bed. A second wake-up experience was caused by very clearly audible sound of someone retching the the adjacent room's bathroom. Ownership of this hotel should be required to spend a busy weekend night in one of these rooms to get the full guest experience.

Room Tip: See it before you book.

We have spent extensive time in Bethel over the years, and based on reputation we expected the Bethel Inn would be a grand, charming place to stay for a romantic weekend. The hiking in the mountains (Old speck, etc.) was great. The restaurants in Bethel were good. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed by the room at Bethel Inn. We booked a basic room (over $200 per night). The "queen bed" was actually two twins pushed together and queen sheets. There was a lot paint peeling in the bathroom, and mildew on the curtains. The room was cramped; furnature was decades past needing replacement. I was hoping for "old and charming," but instead we found "old and tired." There are probably better options around.

We mentioned our disappointment with the bed at checkout and we were compensated with a free Sunday newspaper, for what it's worth.
