“Great hosts, wonderful accomodations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

Our first visit to beautiful Wells, Maine in mid-September and there were many places to stay. We think back to our trip and cannot imagine staying anywhere other than Holiday Guest House. The hosts are the absolute best--we drove past the house upon arrival--we called, was told to turn around and soon found Bill near the street waving us in! Michael and Snickers greeted us inside. You should not pass the cookie dish without taking at least three cookies and breakfast was beyond delicious every morning. The house and grounds are well-kept, comfortable, and with history that Bill and Michael are very happy to share. The hosts and the house make for something much more than a place to stay. Holiday Guest House is a wonderful place and look forward to the next visit.

My husband took me to the Holiday Guest House for my birthday this past weekend. The Inn was warm and charming and the owners take such exceptional care of the place! You really feel as though you are staying with family. Spotless accommodations and attention to detail is why I will go back! (Don't get me started on the delicious french toast!)

we only stayed one night, arriving close to the 5:30, but found the inn clean and comfortable. would have been nice to have a reading light on both sides of the bed, but that was a minor inconvenience. nice breakfast and very warm hosts.

My husband and I had a lovely stay at the Holiday Guest House this past weekend. From the charm of the decor, to the warmth of the owners and the delicious breakfast, everything was top notch. I highly recommend staying there and hope to do so again. Michael and Bill have a great place and should be very proud of themselves. Getting to know Snickers is a bonus.

If you are looking for a piece of heaven in Southern Maine. If you are looking for a Bed & Breakfast with immaculate housekeeping and a scrumptious full breakfast. If you are looking for the greatest innkeepers in the state of Maine, Michael and Bill and their dachshund Snickers.

Then look no more farther than the Holiday Guest House on the Ogunquit/Wells line. My wife and I spent last weekend there and enjoyed it tremendously. We recommend it enthusiastically. We will be back in the Spring.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Eleanor Roosevelt room on the first floor.

What a gem ! . What a wonderful welcome !. What great rooms ! What fantastic breakfasts !. What a pair of truly wonderful hosts. !
Can one say more than this. The Holiday Guest House in Wells, Maine is simply
A JOY !
My wife and I could not have asked for a more wonderful stay, in a more wonderful environment, hosted by more charming people than Michael and Bill.
We would go back just to spend some time with the two of them and enjoy their company.
Just wonderful !

What a very special place to stay! Thank you Michael, Bill and Snickers for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful home and we truly enjoyed our time with you! The bed was comfy, the breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the gardens and decorations highly complemented this impeccably maintained historical home. We highly recommend that you treat yourself to a stay here :)!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Littlefield room, but we were given a tour of them ALL and each one is a well deco...
