My daughter and I stayed 1 night in the White Pine first floor room with a double and a single bed. My initial concern was as it is located off the guest living room it might be noisy in the evening but it was a quiet and restful night. We were very comfortable, and enjoyed watching a dvd at bedtime....

My boyfriend and I stayed here during a recent ski weekend at Sunday River. We initially looked at staying on the mountain, but in prime season, the prices skyrocket. This B&B was a perfect alternative, and of course with a B&B you get the added bonus of personal hospitality. John and Jeanette are really sweet and go out of their...

This house is over 100 years old so it's very quirky. The owners have only been there for 19 months and have kept it within the era to which it was built. We stayed her for 5 nights while we went skiing in Sunday River, about 5 miles away from Bethel. From the moment we arrived John & Jeanette made...

We stayed here for one night as a stop over for skiing. We loved it!!! John and Jeanette handle everything beautifully. John was very responsive with changing my reservation prior to our arrival.

The house is a beauty, we could not have been more confortable. John and Jeanette made sure everything was perfect, their service and attention are insuperable. John kindly answered all our questions and made sure we had everything we needed. Jeanette makes the most delicious breakfast and baked gods! We love everything about this place. Maria + Claudio

My mother, sister, and our two college-aged daughters greatly enjoyed our stay at the Holidae House. From the lovely furnishings to John's very welcoming conversations to Jeanette's wonderful homemade sugar cookies and eggs benedict pastry breakfast, our stay was the epitome of our expectations for a B&B.

I stayed here one night while visiting my niece who attends Gould Academy and it was a wonderful experience. The breakfast was incredible! This was my first time at a B&B and I'm excited to book my next trip to Bethel so I can stay here. My only regret is that I could only stay one night!
