My husband and I stayed at The Brewster Inn for 1 night in August 2014, we were supposed to stay 2 nights but had to cut our stay short by 1 night due some unfortunate family circumstances. The proprietor, Mark, was amazingly nice and understanding about the situation, and offered to work with us on rates for a future re-visit.... More

Hosted in an historical, though partially renowed structure, it is a very fascinating and well kept Inn, located in a tiny and quiet country town. Of course you can't expect an exciting night life nearby, but if you are wandering through the wonderful New England, the Inn is the place for you. Our room was wide, woody, and properly furnished.... More

Our son is a student at University of Maine in Orono. We also have friends in Corinna. This B&B was a perfect place to stay, WITH OUR DOG, that wasn't a typical hotel. We like staying off the beaten path anyway. Sitting on top of a hill in a tiny town, the old inn was Senator Ralph Brewster's house. It's... More

We took a chance with "The Brewster Inn" for the website looked fabulous. The Inn exceeded our expectations. The Host was fabulous and could not be more accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the gardens were beautiful and the décor and history of the inn was historic with plenty of artifacts to review. We will be back next year... More

My family (2 adults, 3 kids) stayed at the Brewster Inn for two nights. Mark, the owner, was extremely helpful in helping us to plan our stay. Not only did he select rooms that were comfortable for the size of our family, he also shared a wealth of knowledge about activities in the area. The Inn is located within easy... More

We stayed at the Brewster Inn this week and truly enjoyed our stay. We love older homes and the Inn makes me wish we could afford such a gem. Mark was a wonderful host sharing humorous stories and we thoroughly enjoyed the information booklet specific to our room and the Inn itself. The breakfast was hearty and we enjoyed chatting... More

Thank you SCCL for your review. B&B's are unique and not like chain hotels or motels everywhere in the US. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, the breakfast and the peace and quiet as you slept. It is peaceful here. More

We booked the hotel on a whim for a literal last minute trip away from home for the weekend. The inn was spotless and nicely decorated. The garden would make a beautiful spot for a wedding or party and the back patio was a wonderful spot for your morning coffee. The town is quaint and there's a very cute museum... More

Thank you for your review eagallant based on your one night stay. I also want to thank you for the kind words re the Inn, gardens and the cleanliness that you found. I'm sorry you didn't like the spiral CFL bulbs in the overhead light that you mistook for fluorescent. Some people don't like overhead lights which is why i... More
