“Excellent night away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

I surprised my husband for his birthday by using our credit card points and taking him away to Maine for the night. We arrived and were greeted with wine, cheese and fresh baked chocolate chip cookies (a pregnant woman's wish). They then showed us around and made a dinner reservation for us at a local Italian place, allowing us to by pass the long wait at the restaurant and serving us a GREAT meal. My only regret was that we could stay only one night. Great hosts, great accommodations and great food! We would love to get back for another visit.

If you're looking for a colonial feel while vacationing in New England this is an excellent choice. Michael and Bill were fantastic hosts and supplied us with superb local information while adding more than a touch of humour. The decor was jaw dropping and the location superb. Our outdoor adventure was somewhat limited by an evening rainstorm, but in all honesty we didn't mind. It gave us more time to soak up the atmosphere of the room and the home. The breakfast was also to die for. Thank you gentlemen, we hope to be back some day!

Holiday Guest House was a wonderful place to stay - spotlessly clean, suberb decor and delicious breakfasts! Michael and Bill, our hosts, welcomed us with a glass of wine and nibbles and were a great source of local information. There were lots of places to relax and read inside and out and we loved it!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this B&B. The inn is just lovely. Our room was immaculate and comfortable as well as beautifully decorated. The location of the inn is good because it is close to everything but still very quiet and relaxing. We really enjoyed having a wonderful breakfast on the porch surrounded by the beautiful gardens. Michael and Bill are gracious hosts and are spot on when it comes to all the details of making guests feel welcome!

We just returned from a wonderful weekend at this B&B. We highly recommend it and will definitely return in the future. The Inn is so convenient to everything, located between Wells Beach and Ogunquit on Route 1. Our room was spacious with a fireplace, air conditioning, wireless internet, and decorated with beautiful antiques. There was always freshly baked cookies available, a wine and cheese party was included Saturday evening, and the breakfasts were simply delicious. From eggs benedict to fruity french toast with delicious homefries, you will not leave hungry. The Innkeepers Michael and Bill go out of their way to ensure your comfort. We truly enjoyed our stay!

This is my 4th stay at this charming Bed & Breakfast. The rooms are tastefully appointed and it is small enough so that you feel at home. The freshly made cooked to order breakfast was delicious along with an assortment of home baked goods was wonderful. The location is perfect, far enough out of town to be quiet but only a few minutes from all the activities. Michael & Bill are so welcoming and made sure my stay was wonderful.

I would highly recommend the holiday guest house bed and breakfast. It was beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean, and conveniently located. The room was spacious enough, beds comfortable and shower had plenty of hot water and pressure. The inn keepers were extremely gracious and did everything possible to make sure we were comfortable. The price of the room included a delicious hot breakfast, served in a sun room overlooking the garden. There were even baked cookies in the dining room every day. My husband is a light sleeper and the noise from the road kept him awake the first night. I didn't find it to be a problem and had a good night sleep. The second night, my husband wore ear plugs, and slept soundly. If one is a light sleeper, I would recommend ear plugs, or request a room in the back of the house. We would definitely stay here again.
