Carol and Scott, the owners, were truly splendid hosts. They were very friendly and accommodating; you can really tell that they want every guest to have a pleasant stay, and they really went out of their way to be helpful and to make us feel at home. Scott helped us to plan our itinerary with great recommendations of the surrounding area. Plenty of materials about the nearby recreational activities were also on hand, and this was very helpful. Scott's also a very good cook. Carol was very friendly and charming. The location cannot be beat -- a very beautiful house at the end of Broad Street -- very quiet, a few minutes' walk to good restaurants. The house itself is beautiful and we truly enjoyed the gardens and the big front porch. The guest rooms are top-notch, with ensuite bathrooms and beautiful furnishings -- even some very nice antique pieces. We were very sad that we had to leave after only three days, but we will be back!

A wonderful peaceful retreat near both the river and mountains and within walking distance of a most charming New England Green and village.

For our 36th Wedding Anniversary, we dicided to ski in Maine, my favorite state of the contiguous 48. So I already knew it would be a great trip. We found the Bethel Hill B&B and decided to stay there. Scott & Carol were FABULOUS! Answered all my questions during the easy reservation process, and helped with ski resorts, ski equipment, etc. The place is fabulous, renovated by Scott and Carol in 2006, I think. Very environmentally friendly. SUPERB breakfasts. Historic town, initial settlements in the 1600s, town formally established in the 1700s. I would go back in a heartbeat!

We stayed at Bethel Hill B&B for 4 nights. I was absolutely perfect! A beautiful house and rooms, very well decorated and extremely clean. The breakfast was delicious, different every morning. Carol and Scott make you feel like at home! If you are looking for a nice and charming place to go to, don´t doubt it, you will enjoy Bethel Hill B&B. We just hope that we can go back sometime in the future!!! The only pity is that it is too far from Spain where we live.

I've been to many B&B's but I have to say that Bethel was the best in all areas, they were helpful, friendly, very clean and Scott is a great cook.

This was our 3rd stay in as many years for our annual ski vacation. We will be back! Spent a blizzard day with Scott and Carol's other delightful guests by the fire -- so much fun! Scott and Carol are delightful hosts, and their inn is just perfect. The gourmet breakfasts always start with some lovely fruit dish, followed by a toothsome hot breakfast, custom prepared to your liking. The inn is immaculate and inviting and we look forward to returning!

Aug. 30: We drove up Broad St to turn our car and drive to a local Inn when we discovered this place with the nice garden and the beautiful flowers. Instead of one night we stayed for three nights. Carol and Scott gave us many ideas for day-trips and adventure in the region. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious!

This was my third time staying in Bethel yet my first time at the Bethel Hill B&B. A friend of mine stays there each time she visits, so I tried it out. I'm hooked! Scott and Carol are such lovely people. They made my stay so comfortable and warm. We chatted each morning while I ate breakfast (I was alone and really enjoyed the company) - and by the way the breakfast was amazing! The rooms are very comfortable and plenty spacious. The rooms are also fairly new construction, so they're in amazing shape. The bathrooms are large and very comfortable. The house is located just a few blocks off the main shopping/restaurant street, in a very quiet and quaint location. It's definitely one of the most beautiful houses in the town; Scott and Carol did most of the work themselves. The landscaping is breathtaking; sitting out on the porch feels like a guilty pleasure! I'm not sure what else to say... but this is definitely my favorite place in Bethel and I know I'll be back! I highly recommend it!

This B&B is totally perfect. It combines the modern amenities, such as free wireless internet, private baths and cable TV with the traditional B&B features. The rooms are beautifully furnished, charming and immaculate. It is really quiet as well. Amazing breakfasts will get you through a cold morning on the slopes! Carol and Scott, the proprietors, are friendly and warm, and they are available to socialize in the den by the fire in the evenings. There is a separate common room for guests with a table and board games as well. If you want to ski at Sunday River, I recommend this as The Place to Stay. We will be back!

My wife and I spent two nights at the Bethel Hill Bed and Breakfast during the days leading up to Christmas. It was a great experience! Even before we arrived at the B&B, Scott and Carol gave us advice for our upcoming ski trip. It was the first time my wife and I went skiing and Scott recommended the learn to ski program which turned out to be great! Our stay at the inn itself was wonderful. From the comfortable and clean room, to the evening fire in the common area, our stay exceeded our expectations. To top it all off, the daily breakfast was excellent and kept us full for an entire day of skiing. We will definetly be doing additional trips after this one. Five stars!

Our objective was to experience the charm of Bethel, Maine. The Bethel Hill B&B was an exemplary accommodation. The Goulds were superb hosts with all the special touches from the glass of wine with cheese in the evening to the lovely dining area at breakfast. This B&B will hold a "MAINE" place in our hearts.

We just got back from our annual family ski week and spent 5 nights at Bethel Hill. Besides being gorgeous, the place is immaculate. We had a TV in our suite, and there is WiFi internet access. The common room features a small fridge for guest use, and plenty of seating for relaxing or playing games. In addition, Carol and Scott had a lovely fire going each late afternoon in another sitting room, where they take the time to chat with their guests. The breakfasts are amazing -- ours started with a fresh fruit salad or plate, a poached pear or a baked apple, and then a hearty hot entree (waffles, omelet, french toast, etc) with bacon or sausages. Besides which, Scott is one of the best ski coaches at nearby Sunday River (we've been there for 12 ski weeks over the years). You will love it here!

Full of charm, super cozy, comfortable and clean. Excellent breakfasts! We spent four nights at the Bethel Hill B&B and didn't want to leave! Owners Scott and Carol were kind, graciously accommodating and very knowledgeable about the area... especially skiing, which we needed a lot of help with! We highly recommend BHB&B!!

We spent five nights in the cozy atmosphere of Bethel Hill Inn. It is one of the finest inns we have ever stayed in. Carol and Scott are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed their kind hospitality and the delicious breakfasts. Highly recommended!

Scott and Carol have created the ideal setting for a relaxing B&B in western Maine. Their three guestroom facility is beautifully designed for privacy. In addition to providing excellent cooked-to-order breakfasts, Scott and Carol are very knowledgeable about the local area and have very engaging friendly personalities that make you feel immediately at home.

We spent only one night but the inn was warm and cozy, very welcoming hosts. Very tastefully but simply decorated.

Carol & Scott, We really enjoyed our stay with you. Everything was perfect. Breakfast was delicious and just what we needed to get us going for our days on the slopes. We are impressed with the convenience to the slopes (downtown Bethel, too) and the whirlpool sure did the trick after our daily ski adventures. Thanks for everything. We'll definitely come and stay with you again.

One of the nicest B&B's we have stayed in, the Bethel Inn is ideally located on a quiet street close to the centre of town. Steve and Carol are great hosts providing a delicious breakfast and friendly help. The rooms are finished to a very high standard and they have gone out of their way to provide not just the basics, but all the extra little touches to ensure the comfort of their guests. We would highly recommend it.

Scott and Carol Gould made us feel at home with their openness and helpfulness. Coming from Switzerland, we received advice for beautiful hikes and very good nourishing breakfasts. The rooms are lovely and renovated and have a lot of storage room. The walkable distance to good restaurants is nice, too.

Fresh, clean, attractive, meticulously decorated and maintained, quiet, comfortable. And Scott and Carol became our new friends.
