An odyssey of adventure and romance was set into motion in the summer of 2014 when Tennesseans John and Jeanette Poole serendipitously pondered a passion that neither had previously thought about prior to a life altering venture to Acadia National Park.
Once in Bar Harbor they happened upon a beautiful, spacious house that just so happened to be for sale! They both exclaimed what a great B&B this huge house would make. Well, this instantaneous thought conjured a deep impetuous yearn that maybe, just maybe, becoming B&B innkeepers themselves could be a dream possible.
Needless to say, the entire return trip to TN proved more thrilling by the mile as they pondered the notion of selling all in TN and moving lock, stock and barrel to ME to put this huge romantic endeavor into serious action. They agreed their ideal B&B had to be in New England, in a quaint town or village, be outdoorsy themed, and have snow as part of the seasonal affect. John & Jeanette settled that Maine would be the venue of choice.
On a crispy cold New Year’s Day 2015 they arrived in Bethel and set their eyes on the ‘For Sale’ Austin’s Holidae House B&B. Well, it was love at first sight! The village, snow, and ambience were all here. And although realizing the house did need a few cosmetic fixes, it was darn near PERFECT!
The rest is history … the closing on the Holidae House happened on May 21st, 2015 and this 7 guest room B&B opened for business on June 1st. On June 2nd, the first guests arrived.
