We've been staying at the Inn now for at least 6 years on our annual trip and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Mark has put a lot of work into the place and truly cares for his guests comfort. He's pleasant to talk to and the breakfasts are yummy too :) Rooms are very comfortable and well kept.

This place was perfect location for us. We enjoyed the host telling us about the history of the inn and about the area. The breakfast was OK, but up to B&B standards. It was quiet and very comfortable.

The Innkeeper is helpful and friendly. The rooms are immaculate and beautifully furnished, and the breakfast is fantastic. The ambiance made it a perfect getaway We highly recommend this spot. This Inn is how the B&B experience should always be.

We had a wonderful trip, to visit old friends, and see the sights, in and around Dexter, Maine, and very much enjoyed our stay at The Brewster Inn. Mark was a most knowledgeable "tour guide," providing insights and information about what to do, and places of interest, in the area. The estate was clean and comfortable, and made for a very nice stay.

Mark made our stay at his historical B&B a absolutely lovely experience. The fantastic honeymoon suite is very beautiful and so comfortable with its queen size bed. We loved all the seating arrangements. Mark is outstanding in his hospitality. Every morning he provides a delightful fresh breakfast. We are looking forward staying at the Brewster Inn, hopefully in the near future and highly encourage others to do same.

We stumbled upon the Brewster Inn in Dexter while looking for a B & B to spend our wedding night. We are holding off our full honeymoon until the weather is cold and we can go someplace warm, but wanted a “warm” place to celebrate that night. We were thrilled to find this hidden gem a short drive from Bangor. The innkeeper Mark was wonderful. It becomes quickly evident that not only does he care about his Inn, and bringing this inn back to its original magnificence, but he cares about his guests. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. I was thrilled to have a fluffy bathrobe, and the softest sheets I’ve ever slept on! Breakfast was simple, yet nice, and we were lucky to sit outside and enjoy the birds and garden views while eating. We’d definitely stay there again. It was a great value and a wonderful stay!

My husband and I stayed here after reading such great reviews online. We don't regret our choice! The customer service was excellent and the room was very cozy and elegant. We can't say enough great things about this place. Thanks for the great stay!

I came to Maine alone for a funeral and was looking for some place more personal than a motel room. Mark took wonderful care of me, from getting me a hair appointment on 30 minutes notice, to suggesting places to eat that would cater to my gluten-free needs, and providing hot cups of tea to take the edge off my sadness. Don't know if I will ever get back this way again, but can highly recommend The Brewster Inn, if you are in that part of Maine!

This was my first visit to a bed and breakfast, but I thought I had a pretty good idea of what to expect: shabby elegance, a sort of musty smell, and some pastries with good strong coffee for breakfast. Well I didn't find ANY of that here (except the good strong coffee!) The inn is located in a lovely old home, but everything was renovated, polished to perfection and oh so comfortable. No musty smells anywhere!! The room was spacious (even tho we booked one of the smaller ones). And then there was breakfast. Oh my! a special every morning (please ask for the blueberry French toast). Mark, you've set the bar high and spoiled me for any other B&B's in my future. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
