Although our trips to Cape Cod are not as frequent as they used to be, we have made our mid-winter getaway inn of choice to be Brewster By The Sea. The Garden Room has long been our favorite, and stepping into it has a feeling of coming home again. We've felt comfortable there for the many times we've booked this... More

Dear friends, thank you for taking the time to write this review. One of the best part of inn keeping is repeat guests- many like you become like family, and we always look forward to catching up on each of our lives. After reading the past few reviews it's really nice to think of spring, summer gardens, opening the pool... More

A long-time friend and I take a trip to Cape Cod once a year as a way to reconnect and experience a few days of relaxation and fun together. We have continued this tradition for over ten years, and every trip begins and ends at the quality B&B: Brewster by the Sea in Brewster, MA! We would never even consider... More

Dearest Sara, you are a dear and thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. It's always such a pleasure to see how much you enjoy the Refugio Suite- it was made in Italy and the manufacturer called the collection Refugio- how perfect since it translates into "refuge". More

January is not the usual time we like to visit Brewster, but the responsibilities of aging parents brought us to BBTS just at the start of Blizzard Juno. In fact we got snowed in and could not get out of the Inn for 24 hours. Donna and Byron made our stay wonderful delivering breakfast to our room at the carriage... More

David, Thank you for writing this great review. It's been a few moths since your last visit, but we are still smiling at your fortitude to come visit Cape Cod during a northeaster. Cape Cod is usually much warmer then Boston in the winter, and we rarely get snow- this winter was the exception! Always enjoyed our morning conversations and... More

We've spent the last several Valentine's Day weekends at Brewster by the Sea and have loved it every time. Donna and Byron have made us feel welcome and well cared for and provided shelter from the wind and snow in an ideal setting. We always end up arriving later in the evening, but we were welcomed with a smile, warm... More

Ted, I think it is perfect that you visit us on Valentines as you two are the sweetest couple! It's always a breath of fresh air for us to see when a couple comes to enjoy each other, our romantic inn and the beautiful area. So glad you liked our new homemade focaccia egg sandwich. I have been perfecting that... More

We picked the wrong weekend to visit the cape, but we picked the right B&B to weather the storm. We arrived on the cape just a few hours before blizzard Neptune. Check in at the B&B was efficient and our initial impression of the B&B and our room was very favorable. The room was elegant, formal and in line with... More

Michael, thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. As innkeepers, I think one of the hardest times for us is when we have the few and far between Northeasters. We always fear that we are going to loose power and not be able to give our guests a five star experience. Thankfully for your visit,... More

We stayed at Brewster By The Sea over this past weekend and we had an absolutely wonderful stay. We stayed in the Refugio Suite and it was so cozy with the fireplace and sitting room and the King bed was super comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and freshly made, we had mushroom/sun-dried tomato omelets one morning and Blueberry pancakes with... More

My husband and I have stayed at Brewster By the Sea four times. We have come back for the nice rooms, the peace and quiet and the delicious breakfasts. However, something has changed. The last time that we were there, the quality of the food was very poor. In fact, we really did not want to eat breakfast there and... More

There is something very mismatched between what this person described and what we do at our inn.

Anyone looking for a great B&B on Cape Cod this is the place. Donna, Bryon and their great dog Harrison not only treat you like family but a touch of royalty also, Great comfy rooms and Donna's breakfasts are simply great. Ron and Camille
