We had an excellent breakfast and wonderful hospitality.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you!

Awesome place!

What an amazing place! From the fresh-baked cookies when you first enter, to the lovely rooms, Mary and Scott welcomed us into their lovely home & we had such a great time. My teenage kids were impressed, and even gobbled up Mary's French Toast (plus some of mine!), which they originally said they wouldn't touch it. The rooms are great & and even have those high tech coffee/tea makers. The "diary" for guest to leave thoughts was really neat. Lovely place & 5 minute walk to 24/7 shopping at LL Bean. As others have said, if I could give it 10 stars, I would. Thank you Mary and Scott! -Murray

Innkeeper Response
Thanks Murray for your kind and thoughtful review. It was our sense that this was your first B & B stay, so we were extra glad you and your kids had such a positive experience!

Clean, hospitable and tranquil!!!

Excellent couple of days!! highly recommended!!

Spectacular Stay!! Thank you Scott and Mary!!

5 on August 18, 2014

Brewster House is over the top, beautiful, lovely, and welcoming. I am so glad we chose to stay here. The innkeepers are wonderful and inviting hosts. Mary is a wonderful cook. She leaves out homemade cookies and refreshments every afternoon that we enjoyed each day we were there. My husband has an allergy to tomatoes and I do not like berries, Mary happily accommodated us with these issues. Scott helped us carry all our luggage to our room. We stayed in room #6, also known as Portland head room. Our room was very nice and comfortable. It was only available for 2 nights of our stay so we booked room #1 for our last night stay. Room 1 is smaller, but also very inviting, cozy, nice, and comfortable with a very nice big bathroom. We enjoyed the comforts of both rooms very much. Because we had to move rooms, it meant we had to move luggage. They did not want us to miss out on our plans for the day so once our new room was clean, Scott and Mary moved our luggage for us while we were out. Scott and Mary have put so much thought and detail into their B&B. From the wine glasses and wine cork remover, to the refrigerators throughout the house, and the soft, fluffy towels in our rooms, also the souvenirs of Brewster House. It felt like being at home. They also have a variety of wines to purchase and enjoy while staying there. He and Mary really went out of their way to make sure we had the best possible trip. When we left, both Scott and Mary gave us a hug and thanked us for staying with them. THANK YOU Scott and Mary for such a lovely and memorable vacation!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for sharing your time and positive experience with us at Brewster House! It was our pleasure to pamper you!

Wonderful stay!

Brewster House is a beautiful home in a great walkable location! Scott and Mary make everyone feel so comfortable and at home. The breakfasts are fantastic and Mary even has the culinary knowledge to adhere to many special diets. While we were there she served a gluten free crustless quiche for everyone because a guest was gluten free. At the same time my son is allergic to soy, eggs, and dairy so she made him vegan blueberry pancakes! In the afternoon she puts out cookies and tea and made sure to have a safe cookie for him, which is so kind! When we travel it is hard to stay place where I don't have access to a kitchen, but Marys kindness and attention to details made our stay beyond exceptional!

Innkeeper Response
Your son was a terrific boy and it was a pleasure making your vacation less effort! Thanks so much for taking the time to write!

We loved our 3 night stay here.

5 on August 11, 2014

Mary and Scott know how to do it right. From the amazing breakfasts to the wonderful rooms our stay was truly relaxing and we will for sure be back. Luxurious towels and linens (very important to us) our room (the West Quoddy #3) was comfortable and roomy with 2 windows on the corner. We had wonderful restaurant suggestions. Great shopping in the area and the Brewster House is close enough to walk to the restaurants. Fabulous porch to drink coffee and wine on .... We will be back.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much, we look forward to hosting your next visit!

The owners live on-site and are very helpful. Delicious breakfasts. We've stayed in dozens if B&B's and this Inn ranks in the top three.

We have been telling all of of our friends and family about our wonderful stay at the Brewster House. Scott and Mary are warm, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and a joy to speak with! The inn is just a short walk away from the shopping outlets and great restaurants. Mary is a a wiz in the kitchen. Her breakfasts were not only creative but delicious! We highly recommend Brewster House.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for sharing your positivity! Scott & I need to get out of the inn more so we can share new dicoveries with you! We just heard about Halycon Knitters tours out of Bath this AM!!

When a serious scheduling problem arose, Scott was most gracious in allowing us to change our reservation to the following night. We are so glad that we were able to stay at the Brewster House and experience Scott and Mary Gile's wonderful B&B! Everything about the Brewster House was fabulous - the breakfast was absolutely delicious, the room was beautiful and the service was perfect!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, and we're so glad we could reschedule you, as that can be challenging when we're busy. Please come again!
