Excellent venue for a Wedding! We had a terrific time. The Inn accommodated all our needs. Delicious food, clean spacious accommodations for a large party. Our group had 137 guests many spent the night in the Inn or in the townhouses. Staff worked very hard, they were all friendly and all seemed to enjoy their jobs. Many thanks to all.

Thank you so much and we’re glad you enjoyed our resort. Our location and amenities can really turn a wedding weekend into a celebration and our staff seems to enjoy the experience as much as the guests do! I will pass along your kind words to our staff. Allen Connors Managing Partner

We had a cute room with a gas fireplace. The fireplace kept the room cozy warm. We ate in the Inn's restaurant the food was fabulous. Our waitress, Michelle, was wonderful, very attentive and friendly. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others without hesitation.

I am so glad you enjoyed being our guests and especially the dining in the Millbrook Tavern and Terrace. Like so many resorts like ours, we have transitioned to less formal dining while keeping our menu entrees quite extensive. While our pub dining offers what you would expect, our fine dining menu goes beyond and is much appreciated by discerning...

We did not reserve, it was just time to stop for the night. We could not believe our good fortune stumbling in here! On a Monday, and for a one night stay, we got a great rate which included the breakfast and the spa next day. We could not take advantage of the spa. However the breakfast was very generous...

It was clear from Tripadvisor there were few options so took this with a clear eye.

Thanks you for taking the time to call our attention to some missteps I don’t know what happened with respect to the unanswered phone call and lack of a confirmation but I can assure you that this is unusual and not a normal guest experience. As a century-old property, we are always in some phase of upgrading and modernizing our...

One of my favorite things about the Bethel Inn was that it provided just about everything you would need. The room was spacious and comfortable, free wifi. We enjoyed the dining room and bar area as well as the campfire in the evening. Bethel is a quaint town that offers numerous quality restaurants and inns. I would definetely return.

Let's preface this review with the fact that we have stayed, over the last many years, at other properties of the same vintage as the Bethel Inn: the Mt Washington Hotel; the Balsams; the Wentworth-By-The-Sea; and smaller but similar properties in Jackson NH, Newport RI, and Mt Desert Island ME. Of all our experiences with such properties, this one was...

As you can see from the preponderance of reviews, yours was an unusual experience and obviously not shared by other guests. It is unfortunate that you didn’t let us know that the air conditioner was not working properly. Even with continuous, ongoing refurbishment and renovations, our 103 year old main building requires having someone on staff to deal with such...

We stayed here for one night in August and had a pleasant experience. The staff was friendly and they made good suggestions for hiking and walking (even though we only had a couple of hours left before sunset). Our room was clean and spatious, the restaurant has a good menu and decent prices. Gym and heated pool were a nice...

We stayed here for a wedding and were in one of the outbuildings rather than the main lodge. The room and bathroom were adequate size and the king bed was comfortable. Although there is wi-fi in the main lodge, it does not extend out to the nearby buildings. This was a real downside to our stay. Another downside was the...

Thank you for taking the time to write and your positive comments on the reception, breakfast buffet and staff.

My now 8th year coming up to this resort with the guys. First off, I will say that the golf course is in great condition, probably the best I've seen it.
