Our first visit to Bethel and our first bed and breakfast experience was at the Holidae House. We found the room with private bath (#2) to be very comfortable and clean. Our innkeeper hosts Laurence and Marcia were very accommodating- we enjoyed a delicious New England breakfast each morning cooked to order. The homemade scones were outstanding, as were the wild blueberry pancakes. After dinner liquers and homemade cookies graced each evening. Our hosts made us feel right at home. The inn is located centrally in Bethel- walking to shops or shuttling to Sunday River Ski Resort. This is a bed and breakfast we would not hesitate to recommend to friends and hope to revisit again soon.

This was our second stay at this perfectly charming B&B. We felt like royalty in the beautifully furnished rooms and were treated to the most delicious breakfasts each morning. Perks like Starbucks coffee, fresh eggs from free-range chickens, and tasty turkey bacon set this breakfast apart from any other. The apricot-ginger scones are to die for and Laurence is quick to share his culinary secrets along with a his humor. Located in a beautiful part of Maine any time of the year. We're planning to return in the fall.

At the end of March, my 15-year-old son and I made our second-annual "spring break" visit to Austin's Holidae House B & B in Bethel, Maine. As expected, Lawrence and Marsha, the proprietors, anticipated our every need. There was plenty of time for rest and relaxation in their comfortable rooms. And they steered us in the direction of great recreational opportunities in the area. There was skiing, snow tubing, and the now famous World Book of Records-breaking Snow Woman.
Lawrence also made arrangements with another local establishment for us to use their swimming pool. We are always impressed and grateful for the friendliness and
cooperation of people in the area. It is refreshing to be among people who support each other in this way.
I would be remiss if I didn't compliment Lawrence and Marsha on their superb breakfacts. Whatever you want is made to order with the finest fresh supplies available. It is hard not to over-indulge!
Before leaving. I thanked Lawrence for arranging a light dusting on new snow that awaited us each morning of our stay. but in his humility, he refused to accept credit for that.
All in all, we had another restful, healthful,and thoroughly enjoyable "Spring Break", and we are already making plans for next year.

We are Australians and stayed at Austin's Holidae House in Bethel for one night. We were driving through from Portland to Buffalo, NY and the local tourist bureau recommended Austin's.

The accommodation was comfortable and superbly fitted with period furniture. It was self contained with an en-suite.

The house itself is right in the middle of town which meant that we could walk to all of the shops rather than having to drive.

The overall atmosphere was very welcoming both from the 'feel' of the house and the owners. I have to thank Laurence for re-introducing me to Irish Mist as part of the after dinner drinks available.

Breakfast was scrumptious. No other word for it. When we left there were no empty crannies.

We would have loved to have stayed longer but our travel plans couldn't be altered.

We'd thoroughly recommend Austin's to anybody who wants good accommodation at a reasonable price with friendly hosts.

This was by far the best B&B around. Laurence was a wonderful host and made us the best breakfast.
We stayed in Room #2 which was the cleanest room I've ever seen. You felt like you were at home.

Every room has it's own Private bath.

If you are going to Ski at Sunday River you HAVE to stay here.
