This was my first stay in a B&B so I have no comparison, but I was impressed by the attention to detail. The hosts seem to have thought of everything a guest might need. For example, rooms have a corkscrew and wine glasses because many people are celebrating when traveling. The room has electric and USB outlets and a sound effect machine. We were on the first floor by the front door and the staircase but we were not disturbed by any noise. It is an old building with old creaky floors, which is part of the charm, but I was surprised by how quiet it was. The breakfast was delicious. You can walk to a few stores and restaurants. The hosts were nice and very helpful. I would definitely recommend Holidae House.

John and Jeanette are wonderful hosts and make this B&B very memorable. We will return next time we’re in the neighborhood. The building is an old Victorian that needs some work, but it has a lot of charm. We stayed in room #4, the Rose room, which is by the road. We probably wouldn’t pick this room in the future due to late night snow plowing across the street. All aspects of our visit had been thought through by our hosts, and we were introduced to all key parts of the inn by John, even at our late 10pm arrival. Breakfast was delightful and the coffee is excellent! Covid restrictions were enforced politely and spacing is done pretty well. Again, a wonder stay hosted by wonderful people.

The ideal location, attention to detail, kindness - from both the hosts and other guests, delicious breakfasts and cleanliness were all part of a wonderful stay at the Holidae House. You can easily walk to the Inland Woods + Trails, Cafe Di Cocoa, the shuttle to the mountain, the food truck 'Le Mu' and other fun venues.

We stayed with our 2 babies for the weekend. The hosts were incredibly hospitable and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Everything was clean and the breakfast was superb. Highly recommended!

John and Jeanette are exceptional hosts and keep their B&B to the same standard. from the booking process over the phone, check in, home made breakfast, and check out you could not ask for more. Unless, of course you find that all the other quests finished of the homemade desert of the day! Sunday River is just 10 mins away and several restaurants are even closer . We where able to have breakfast and arrive at the mountain before 8 am- front row parking at the River. Thank you to J and J for the great night and birthday card for my daughter! ~ J and J
