Our bed was extremely comfortable with two pillow options provided and everything seemed immaculately clean.

We were welcomed like family to the B&B by Michael & Bill. They both immediately dropped everything to welcome us & help carry bags to our beautiful room. The chocolate chip cookies were to die for!

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...

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...

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.

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...
