A Belated Review and a Charming Stay !

4.6 on March 15, 2016

Sorry for taking so long to write you, but I wanted to tell the world that Brewster House was an amazing experience. Everything from the grounds to the food to the rooms was lovely. My wife, Flora, and I adored it. Scott is a great storyteller, and we took him up on a few of his recommendations, including a beautiful Maine beach where it seemed only the locals were daring enough to get wet ! (We splashed around but only got up to our ankles.). Mary is a sweetheart and a great cook. Each breakfast was unique, and the setting was quaint and comfortable. (Steal a scone or a baked good upon arrival; you won't regret it ! ) They really know the area well and played tour-guide for us as well. Our room was really well maintained, and in celebration of our honeymoon, Scott and Mary provided a nice gift basket that included some great spices and local oils. Man, speaking of food, I could go for a fresh fruit Pavolva ! The entire stay was charming, relaxing, and a great way to introduce us to Maine. We loved it. We hope to be back, even !


Brewster House Weekend

5 on November 29, 2015

My husband and I planned a weekend, one night getaway from our children. Mary adn Scott Gile at the Brewster House made it happen. The Inn is beautiful, clean, quiet, quaint and everything we could have hoped for. My husband had a few extra's ordered for my birthday...and the Giles' made it all happen. In the morning, after a delectable breakfast (bring your appetite please), I was given a slice of cake with an candle and a lovely Happy Birthday Rendition from our Innkeepers. Going the extra mile to make the weekend special, we plan to return again as Mary and Scott Gile run an outstanding B&B.


Wonderful ending to a losing weekend...

We went to Maine to watch our daughter's team in a FH semi-final championship. Unfortunately they lost, but our stay at the Brewster House made it a wonderful ending to the weekend. The rooms were gorgeous and comfortable and our inn keepers, Scott and Mary, made sure that everything was perfect. The three-course breakfast was incredible. Still drooling over the lemon eggs! Highly recommend!


Great stay at Brewster House

Had a great weekend at Brewster House during Pumpkinfest in Freeport. Mary and Scott are great hosts and their breakfasts were terrific.


A quiet location convenient to shopping

We were greeted at the door by our innkeepers and delicious gluten free cookies. (I hAd shared in an email my sensitivity to gluten.) our room was comfortable, spacious and supplied with amenities such as a keurig coffee maker, local made lotion and soaps, and beautiful his and her robes. Our breakfast was delicious and hearty. Our innkeepers shared lots of information on places to dine and visit.

Loved it!!!

5 on August 31, 2015

My husband and I had the best stay! The room and onsuite bathroom were spacious and very clean. The hostesses were friendly, funny and helpful. The breakfast food was better than a five star restaurant. It was also in walking distance to the adorable downtown. We would totally stay there against!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much! Positive reinforcement is a wonderful thing!!


Feeling Welcomed

5 on August 21, 2015

The owners of Brewster House made us feel unbelievably welcomed. From our accommodations to breakfast, they went above and beyond to give us a feeling of being at home. There was absolutely no noise heard from other rooms. The room was nice and big, with a really nice sized bathroom. The outlets, restaurants and entertainment, were all within walking distance. We could not have felt any better about our choice of place to stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking your time to write such a positive piece! Obviously, you have to plan a return visit!


Amazing B&B in Freeport!

We had the most wonderful weekend at the Brewster House. This B&B has such charm and the rooms are quaint and inviting! Scott and Mary were friendly and offered many suggestions to make the most out of our weekend away. The breakfast was phenomenal. Would absolutely recommend Brewster House and cannot wait to go back! Thanks for a wonderful weekend.


Perfect Hosts, Perfect Location

4.8 on August 13, 2015

This was an anniversary trip for my wife and I. The owners are such a pleasant couple. The room was clean, well decorated and full of history. Brewster House is in perfect proximity to L.L. Bean and all that downtown Freeport has to offer.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for your kind review. It's gratifying to know that you appreciate our hard work!
