A couple of weeks ago we had a dinner celebration at the Brewster Inn with family and friends 26 total. I have been there about 4 years ago and fell in love with the place and overall the quality at all levels. With that in mind, we planned the graduation dinner for our son with them. We made the reservation... More

We stayed here for a weekend during a visit to Colgate and Syracuse Universities. The Inn is perfectly situated on a lake right in between the two campuses. The Inn itself has great bones and could be remarkable with a savy upgrade. There are many decor flubs that take away from the charm of the inn. For instance there are... More

We were traveling through the area late in the evening and happened upon the Inn and was fortunate to have secured their last room. The room was in the separate building called the Carriage House located next to the main property. The Inn has lovely grounds and is located on the Lake. The room was tastefully decorated and had what... More

It's our annual trip to the Brewster and so enjoy our meal at the restaurant. We love the Terrace Bar Room - the bar area is amazing and there is a great number of people to mingle with. The dining area there has a great atmosphere - so it's our favorite. I love that the menu now offers smaller orders... More

We have eaten at the Brewster many times, but this is the first time we have stayed at the inn. We had a room in the main house, overlooking the lake. We had a gas fireplace and a hot tub. The staff was excellent, service was first rate. The room, however is showing its age a bit. The tub needed... More

This place sits on the southeast end of Cazenovia lake. It was after dark when we arrived, so we missed the entrance at first. Note: It is just before the T in the road where 20 east meets Rippleton Road (13) and Foreman Street (20). It has plenty of white string lights to guide you, but if you've never been... More

We have been coming here to eat and for special events for years. The food is always great. Wine selection very good. And the setting on beautiful Cazenovia Lake can't be beat. Every season is special there and in the warm weather you can eat out on the manicured lawn lakeside. It is always a favorite!

This was my second time eating dinner here. The food is amazing!! I have ordered the rack of lamb twice. It was absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the Hawaiian tuna. He raved about it. Our waiter was helpful in every way possible. Any question we asked he answered. If he didn't know the answer he went back and asked the... More

Dined here Saturday June 7th with my wife. We have often admired the Brewster Inn when driving through town on route 20, and finally decided to make reservations as we were visiting the Owera Winery in Cazenovia. Reservations were easy to make with a pleasant young lady letting us know the openings, and then when our schedule was moved up... More
