My husband and I badly needed to get away this fall due to health issues that precluded us from taking any vacation prior to that time. Fortunately, after studying bread and breakfasts in southern Maine that would not be too great a distance from our home, we chose the Holiday Guest House in Wells. How fortunate we were with our...

Upon our arrival we were greeted warmly by our inn keepers, Michael and Bill, who made us feel completely at ease throughout our visit. The Inn itself, built in 1814, is elegantly and tastefully decorated with art and objects appropriate to a charming 19th century home. We slept in the Mariner room and enjoyed a wonderful night's rest. The morning...
