Our stay at Brewster By The Sea was absolutely delightful! A friendly face on arrival, exceptionally comfortable beds, delicious breakfasts, and a wonderfully warm and comforting environment! Byron, Donna, and Harrison were the best!! It made our New Year!

Incredible Inn with a great staff :)

5 on July 07, 2014

Such an incredible stay, the staff and the owners are very polite and attentive to your every need. We stayed in the 2 room suite and it was perfect for 3 nights, everything was clean and comfortable,it's like we were home. Breakfast was 3 filling courses and delicious coffee Byron! Thank you for making our first trip to the Cape a memorable stay, hopefully we'll see you around Christmas :)

The greatest B&B experience on the Cape.

5 on August 22, 2011

It's very difficult to know where to begin. Breakfast is a three-course masterpiece, each and every morning, served with a cheerful smile and gracious greeting. The rooms are meticulously appointed in a truly European manner. The beds will keep you in dreamland. Everything in the entire inn is spotlessly clean. Should you wish a reservation at one of the area's restaurants, your hosts will be happy to arrange that for you. They are also an invaluable resource on the best activities as well as where to view the most beautiful sunset. Stay at this wonderful inn, and you will never consider staying anywhere else on the Cape, ever.

The owners of this establishment set the standard on how a fine B&B should be run. They are friendly, knowledgeable, personally involved and proud of their Inn, without being obtrusive in the least. The breakfasts are among the best we have experienced anywhere in the US or Canadian 5-star B&Bs.

Home away from home

This was our third stay at the Brewster by the Sea Inn & Spa and we will definitely be back. Donna and Byron have created a homey atmosphere that makes you feel like you're staying with friends. The attention to detail is unmatched, the breakfasts are outstanding, and the location is perfect.

Winter Getaway

We had a wonderful getaway weekend at Brewster By The Sea. Byron and Donna were very welcoming, and our room was beautiful . . . perfectly furnished, very cozy, and very comfortable. You won't be disappointed!

Romantic getaway!

This place was wonderfully romantic, and the food was superb. Byron and Donna were wonderful hosts and their dog Harrison, the Labradoodle, was very well behaved. My husband and I had a beautiful weekend here and would definitely stay here again. We stayed in the Bella Suite and loved the room.

Amazing all around!

My fiancée and I as well as our parents were lucky enough to spend a night at Brewster By the Sea in early December. What a wonderful experience! The rooms were all absolutely gorgeous (in-room fireplaces are a great touch!) and the owners were just as sweet as could be. The delicious breakfast and 24 hour "concierge" they provided was a fantastic touch. I recommend this B&B to anyone and everyone for a great time at the Cape!

We stayed in the Belle Suite - what a delight!. Super-comfortable bed, quality linens, beautiful decor, nightly turn-down service complete with yummy truffles, Keurig coffeemaker and mini-fridge plus a cozy sitting room. Flat screen TVs in each room, plus an IPod docking station/radio/alarm clock and Wi-Fi. Our hosts, Donna and Byron were the best! It's obvious that they both truly enjoy being innkeepers and made us feel totally welcome and right at home. They serve excellent breakfasts with homemade baked goods, fresh fruit, and delicious entrees each day - no need for lunch (but try some of Donna's cookies for afternoon tea)! The guest living room is comfortable and cozy; Byron lit a fire for us each evening. And many little special touches - the radio in the tuned to a lovely classical station at night, fine quality toiletries, the thickest, fluffiest towels, the parting gift bag, etc., etc., etc. make BBTS truly one of the very best B&Bs we've ever been to. Look forward to staying again...
