We are going BACK

My husband & I just got back from staying here for 3 nights. We couldn't ask for more. Bill & Michael couldn't do enough for us. They recommened 3 outstnding restaurants, Joshua's and The Clay Hill Farm & for lunch Mikes Clam Bar (they do dinner here also). We enjoyed our time that we booked again in October. That should tell you enough.

Out of a fairytale

Staying in Ogunquit, in general, is gorgeous and like it is straight out of a storybook, but staying in the Holiday Guest House was magic. The home is refined and well decorated. The proprietors were so kind and helpful, and their breakfast was yummy! We would have liked more meat in the breakfast, but I believe it was the luck of the draw! The establishment is clean and it feels like you are walking in your own family home it is so quaint. The room we stayed in (the West Room) had it's own bathroom, a fireplace, a refrigerator, wine glasses, a television, and optional air conditioner. Furthermore, the location to activities and food really worked for us. I could write a great deal more about how happy we were with our stay, but I'll leave you the joy of being pleasantly surprised. So to sum it up, yes, you should stay here!

Delightful Stay

We were appreciative of the fact that Holiday Guest House would honor a one night request as we only had one night to spend in the Wells area. Our hosts were warm and welcoming; the chocolate chip cookies were a favorite of my husbands. A flexible breakfast schedule is a nice option, as well. Maybe we shouldn't mention Snickers, but because we had been away from our home and precious pet for over a week, we loved seeing Snickers!

Perfect Place To Stay

My wife and I stayed at the B&B for 4 nights. The room, the breakfasts, and the service were all amazing. Absolutely no complaints. Mike and Bill were perfect hosts. Every detail was covered. I don't mind paying this much when everything was so great. We will go back again..

One of the Best!

Michael and Bill were wonderful hosts and our stay at Holiday Guest House was one of the best B&B experiences we've ever had! The room was comfortable, quiet and private and the breakfasts were delicious. They were even able to accommodate my gluten-free needs. Michael and Bill were also very helpful in arranging a last-minute dinner reservation for us so we could celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely return to this B&B when we visit the area again.

All's well that ends in Wells

Our two-night stay in Holliday Guest House could hardly have been better. In fact, it was so good that it made up for the rainy weather on our second day. MIchael and Bill provided exceptionally fine service, detailed excursion advice, congenial hosting, and breakfasts worthy of abandoning diet observance. House and gardens provided a fine New England setting.

Get away weekend

This was our first visit to Maine and we are already planning a return visit. The Holiday Guest House was a wondrous experience from the moment we arrived to the moment we hugged the owners upon our exit. The room was beautiful, and the afternoon cookies and morning breakfast were delicious beyond belief. An ideal visit to an idyllic locale,

Adorable! (And I'm just talking about the owners!)

Great location, great house, great food, and great company! The owners are two of the most fabulous, funny, and lovable people you'll ever meet. They book months in advance and it's easy to see why.

5 star accomdations!

We stayed 5 nights. Perfect New England B&B! Exceptionally clean, great location, hosts Bill & Michael were wonderful! Helpful, not overbearing, fun to chat with and excellent knowledge of the area's restaurants, shops and attractions. Definitely recommend to couples for that perfect weekend in Southern Maine. Excellent breakfast everyday in a lovely sun porch. 5 stars...5 diamonds..whatever you call it, worth every penny!!!!

About the innkeepers

There is no one reason why we became innkeepers but after 11 years there are several reasons why we became and still are in-keepers. The biggest reason is we get to meet the nicest people from all over the world and we don't have to fly anywhere to do it. We have so many repeat guests that they are like family and you look forward to seeing them year after year and catching up on everything that's going on in their lives.
