“Beautiful B&B With Friendly Inn Keepers”
Reviewed November 2, 2009

My sisters, mother, sister-in-law, and I travel to Maine every year for our "girls getaway". This was our first time staying at the Holiday Guest House B&B and we were very impressed. It is a lovely colonial built in the 1800's with lots of charm and character. It is also decorated to fit the home's time period with beautiful antiques and furnishings. The inn keepers, Michael & Bill, are wonderful. They are super friendly, hospitable, and make a delicious breakfast! There dog "Snickers" is a cutie and we enjoyed his company as well. I would highly recommend this B&B and hope to visit again next October with the girls.

We were looked after so well by the inn keepers Michael and Bill during our rather short by-pass of Wells that we intend to visit again sometime in the future.

The house has been immaculately maintained and decorated/furnished to an olde-world fashion in keeping with it's history.

Beds really comfy, breakfast really good and overall a really pleasant place to stay

My wife and I traveled to Ogunquit for our 5 year anniversary and stayed at the Holiday Guest House based on recommendations from this site. Bill and Michael were the absolute best (and their dog Snickers was really friendly too!). They were awesome with great tips for dining in the area and their full homemade breakfast was really good (hope you guys keep the apple strada). We stayed in the Littlefield Room which was spacious and had a very comfortable bed. We plan on returning in the future and highly recommend the Holiday Guest house to anyone who is looking for an amazing place to stay.

It was our first time staying at the B&B and WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR! The B&B is decorated beautifully and Michael and Bill could not be nicer. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves and we felt so at home and relaxed. What a beautiful part of Maine to visit. Thank you Michael and Bill, you are doing a fantastic job!

As travellers from the UK, we did not know what to expect as the Maine was quite unknown to us: we discovered a beautiful, friendly and happy holiday area with great restaurants and a fantastic trolley service (for Engish readers, this is a brilliant old style trolley-bus service). For us, though, the very best part was the Holiday Guest House: the house itself is lovely - tastefully and stylishly furnished and decorated with great flair - each room individually styled, spotlessly clean and with every comfort. The innkeepers, Bill and Michael, are the most charming, welcoming and friendly hosts whose attention to detail and hospitality are the finest we have ever encountered. Bill's breakfasts are amazing - American cuisine at its very best - nothing is too much trouble for these two amazing hosts. In the Ogunquit area we found a delightful holiday location - in the Holiday Guest House we found friends. We hope to revisit again as soon as we can.

We arrived without having booked a room and were shown several rooms by Bill that were available. I loved the first floor room and was told that Eleanor Roosevelt had stayed there, I was sold!! Breakfast was prepared by Bill and he did a great job!
Mike was full of information on the town and where or not to eat and he did get us reservations at Joshua's but we passed because of the time. He's a talker and if your Italian you'll love him!! This is a B&B that I would definitely go back to or recommend to family and friends, which I already have.

My partner and I spent 2 incredible nights in the "Littlefield" room. Hosts, Bill & Mike were fantastic at making sure we were comfortable, and had enough to eat at breakfast. Really nice people! Looking forward to another trip in the near future. We highly recommend their place!
