Excellent B&B in Bethel

5 on October 22, 2015

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!

Terrific stay during summer of 2011

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

Icing on the cake!

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.

Hospitality at its best

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.

it doesn't get ant better than this!

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!
