After four perfect nights I have to say that the innkeepers, John and Jeanette (from Tennessee), are the best hosts I've ever met. I was here for a big ski race at Sunday River and usually stay at the Bethel Inn, but the Holidae House will be my stay when I'm in Bethel moving forward. The rooms are comfortable, everything...

Stayed two night for a weekend ski trip. We were given a welcoming tour of the B&B. Bedroom was nice but the bathroom was small. Breakfast was outstanding. There was a gluten free version of all of the meals that my girlfriend got, and gave her seal of approval. Moreover the owners Jon and Jeannette were great. They love what...

Thank you very much! It was such a pleasure having you here and we are so glad she was able to enjoy her breakfasts. We are sorry the bathrooms are not larger, this is unfortunately not uncommon among old Victorian B&Bs. We sincerely hope you are able to return, it would be great to see you both again. Take care!!...

We stayed here for the nordic ski race. The hospitality was great and the breakfasts were phenomenal. They have baked goods in the afternoons which is a great treat to come back to after being outside all day. The other nice touch is they have over 24 kinds of tea to choose from. In the morning they had fresh ground...

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.
