Delightful Stay!

Erin & Chris were delightful hosts. They were fully prepared with very accurate information about the local area attractions and restaurants. The property was everything we expected, the food was wonderful, & their service was exceptional. We would highly recommend Brewster by the Sea. Thank you.

Amy and Chris are amazing hosts. We were greeted with lovely smiles from both along with a nuzzle from Sweet Pea the dog. Upon entering the Loft Room, we were surprised by a lovely bottle of Prosecco and a delicious chocolate ganache cake for two with a note welcoming the honeymooners. The Loft Room was perfect with a separate sitting room and a bedroom. We had breakfasts that one would expect from the Ritz Carlton. Chris is an amazing chef. Extras were the cookies in the afternoon and cognacs and brandies in the evening. We will definitely be returning soon so we can enjoy a summer weekend there and want to make it our anniversary ‘ go to place’ each year. Thank you Amy and Chris for making our time with you very special.

Sheer Bliss

Everything we expected and so much more! Beautiful, immaculate, comfortable and quiet. An always gracious and smiling Amy provided us with the perfect inn to relax and feel indulged. Starting with the most beautifully presented and delicious breakfasts to a nightcap of Port or Congnac, every thing is done to please both body and soul. Fresh flowers in your room from the gorgeous garden, linen towels and lovely bath amenities and Sweet Pea's wagging tail make Brewster by the Sea a place we will choose to recommend and return to time and again. We even were packed a delicious, huge breakfast to go because of an early flight departure. Who could ask for anything more!

Amy and her staff could not have been more accommodating! We didn't want for anything. Rooms had everything we could want...great bed, fireplace, our own well-equipped bathroom (great automatic nightlight, fantastic fast acting bathroom heater, best towels we ever used). Room had a lovely sitting are where we could sit and read. The location was great also, with things to do in Brewster, and easy access to all areas on the cape. My husband has Celiac disease and Amy and staff created great breakfasts, and snacks, that were gluten free without any fuss. In everything we were treated with great courtesy. Their friendliness set the mood for all the guests This is a place we would definitely like to revisit next time we come east.

Great Stay in some wet weather

Last week was very wet and cold on the Cape, but Amy, and her staff, made the stay very warm. The rooms are very well decorated, but it is her warmth, and attention to detail that made the stay memorable. Highly recommend Brewster by the Sea Inn!

A Welcome Getaway

5 on April 29, 2017

My husband and I were looking to get away after a long winter. We were anxious to get away and decided to try the Brewster Bed and Breakfast. The best decision in a long time! We loved the peace and quiet of our beautiful room. It was clean, the linen was superb and the pillows and mattress better than we had experienced in a very, very long time! On one of the cooler evenings we used the fireplace and enjoyed the ambiance and atmosphere created. An unequaled time to rekindle or create lasting memories. Amy and staff have done a remarkable job making all feel welcome and important. Sweet Pea is just that! The breakfasts that are served are amazing. It was truly a 5 star experience and we encourage all to experience the Brewster Bed and Breakfast! For all those who geocache - you can walk across the street and claim one.

Stayed on a whim

5 on April 19, 2017

Visiting family and friends during the off season on the Cape, we decided to look up B&B's in the area. We were pleasantly surprised to find Brewster by the Sea and the accommodations provided. We are no strangers to the B&B experience, everyone is different, every owner has different levels of involvement. Amy warmly greeted us and made us feel immediately welcomed into her home. The pride she took and her attention to detail in making our experience the best possible was a true standout. We were bumped up to a higher level room due to upgrades in the area of the home we originally booked, which was a nice bonus. The room itself was outstanding, quiet, well furnished (the bed was amazing) and a joy to call ours for the sadly short stay. I must say, the shower was perhaps the best I've ever experienced. The atmosphere of the grounds and surrounding properties was quiet and rural, please note this was the off season. But access to the highway and other points of interest are a quick commute. Amy shares our interest in supporting local businesses and has incorporated that philosophy into her establishment, supplying locally made soaps in rooms and other crafts in her small store. We applaud this effort! Amy had also been blessed with finding and employing a fantastic staff, our interaction with them was limited, but you could clearly see the pride taken in their labor. We are looking forward to finding another adventure on the Cape soon so that we can visit Brewster by the Sea again. P.S. Breakfast was amazing.

Incredible Bed and Breakfast

Loved the charm, history, the room, the location. The owner is wonderful! And I love her dog, Sweat Pea!!

The Inn is the destination

We have visited many Inns over the years with many excellent innkeepers but none better than Donna and Byron Cain. They are caring and sincere people who go the extra mile to make your stay relaxing in a pleasant environment. Welcome to Elizabeth, the new addition to their staff.
