Brewster Inn visit Oct. 15th 2014

4.0 on October 22, 2014

The room was clean, neat and the bed was comfortable AND the morning breakfast was awesome. Mark, the owner, is very friendly and always has been, we've been going for about 5 years now and always stay at his Inn. Won't stay anywhere else.. the scoring won't allow me to pick Outstanding which is what I'd give it!


Best B & B in New England

5 on October 11, 2014

Now our favourite New England B & B as we stayed for the first time in Sept '14. Felt very much at home in this delightful Victorian mansion. Rooms are beautifully appointed and the host, Mark, is a pleasure to know. Knowing he restores and refreshes the building and rooms on a regular basis shows how dearly he cares for this place.. Look forward to seeing him again next year. Breakfast, outstanding and one can just feel all the comforts of home staying in for an afternoon or evening..


Wonderful stay

5 on October 09, 2014

We just got home from a trip through New England. One of our stops was at the Brewster Inn in Dexter, Maine. We loved our stay there. Mark, the innkeeper, is great and will do whatever it takes to make your stay perfect for you. He is full of day trip ideas and recommendations. His breakfasts were to die for and we loved reading the history of the inn while we were there. Many sizes of rooms from the small ( our choice) to the huge!


Charming Bed and Breakfast

4.2 on October 09, 2014

My husband and I recently stayed at the Brewster Inn and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room, the Hideaway was very comfortable. Marc was very accommodating in offering suggestions and tips to get around the area which I might add is very beautiful. He also serves a delicious breakfast. We would highly recommend this place full of historic interest.


Hidden gem in a B & B

5 on October 07, 2014

What an outstanding host at this quant bed and breakfast. It is so full of history and Mark brings it all out with life. Very comfortable and warm place. You would never believe it was 2 acres tucked away in Dexter. Have to stay here to believe! Looking forward to a return trip as very central to many great places.


beautiful historic inn

4.8 on September 24, 2014

My sister and I stayed at the beautiful in Sept. 12-16, 2014. We chose the Game Room because it meet all of our needs, very large,,2 beds, frig, mircowave, gas fireplace which keep the room comfortable on the chilly nights. Mark was a wonderful host and help with our questions about the area and GOOD places to eat, which were a bit limited due to the small town. The people we meet were very friendly and helpful. The inn itself was beautifully restored and the history very interesting. The gardens around the inn provided a quiet and peaceful place to sit. The breakfasts that Mark made each morning were filling and his hot dishes were more than filling, you could also have your choice of breads, mixed fruit, cold cereals, eggs and juice,teas, great coffee, milk, or O.J. Thank you Mark for a beautiful stay.l


Enchanting!

5 on September 17, 2014

My wife and I stayed in the Truman Room, which was lovely and very comfortable. We will definitely return in the future. Breakfast was excellent, and we met several new friends there. The gardens are beautiful and lovingly cared for. A surprisingly gorgeous place to stay. Many thanks to our wonderful British host and innkeeper Mark Stephens.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. I'm glad you both enjoyed your time here and i hope to be able to welcome you back in the future


Rustic And Centrally Located

3.6 on July 18, 2014

If you'd like decent accommodations but wish to avoid hotels, this makes a great choice. Best of all? Mark takes it upon himself to ensure solid WiFi bandwidth and selection of DVDs for in-room viewing. The drawing room on the first floor is lovely, too.

Innkeeper Response
"Centrally located" is correct. Perfect for days trips all around large parts of Maine from the coast to the mountains and lakes. Drop your bags, unpack, treat the Brewster Inn like home, come and go as you please and use my knowledge to have a great time.. Perfect!


Just the right place to stay.

5 on July 12, 2014

Beautiful from beginning to end. Surroundings, the décor, the history, the rooms, the people just every thing goes together to make this a great stay. The gardens and patios make it very nice to be there. Our first time, and we are going back next year. Mark Stephens is the best,. Very friendly, down to earth, and goes out of his way to take care of you and make you comfortable. While you are there, stroll the town and have lunch at the General Store.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your great review. The Fossa general store. An excellent addition to my many great ideas for my guests.. The final big project will be complete when you return next year with all the entrance hall and main staircase re-decorated. Going to look amazing
