About The Guaranteed Performance Golf School
The first thing you should know about Bethel Inn’s golf school is that the student/instructor ratio is 3:1, meaning everyone gets lots of personal attention and the coach and students can actually play a round of golf together. I knew straight away that I was going to like golf pro, Mark Mallory, when he scolded husbands about shouting “Keep Your Head Down!” to their wives – explaining that was not the true problem. Golf pros Mark and Niko escorted us to the dedicated golf training range where they put us through our paces and reveled all kinds of wonderful golf tips…. Wondering how much to bend your knees? Simple, “Imagine you’re standing in your ski boots.” – brilliant!
Throwing caution to the wind we decided to try to escape to the coast of Maine during the busiest week of the summer season. Summer doesn’t officially begin in New England until July 4th, and this year a heat wave only heightened everyone’s desire to getaway. Finding a last minute room anywhere in Maine during the July 4th weekend was unlikely, but after scanning a few bed and breakfast sites, we were lucky to grab a room at the Dockside Guest Quarters in York Maine. This is truly one of the most picturesque and quiet settings in the York Harbor/ Ogunquit area. The inn is located on Harris Island and affords their quests beautiful waterfront views.
We were looking for peace and quiet and busy hotels and 4th of July crowds were not for us during this weekend getaway. We arrived while the inn was setting up for afternoon tea which offered quite a delicious spread, and the view was breathtaking.

The Captain Lindsey House Bed and Breakfast in Rockland, Maine is not only one of Maine’s premier inn experiences, but it is so comfy that spirits from past generations just don’t want to inhabit anyplace else.
