We recently spent the weekend at the Brewster House with a group of friends. The house itself is absolutely great. It reminds me of what an inn should look like - classic yet elegant. Each room is beautifully decorated. Ours had a fireplace, and each room has their own private bathroom which is nicer than mine at home!! The hosts, Mary and Scott are perfect for the job! Mary is an amazing cook. We had two different gourmet breakfasts which came out hot and perfect - how does she do that?? Scott was a wealth of information on things to do and places to see. We took a day trip to Reid State Park and saw the ferocious ocean waves - truly spectacular. All the shops are within walking distance and we had dinner at a fabulous restaurant, also walking distance. If you are going to be in Freeport, I can't recommend this place enough. Tell Mary and Scott, Leslie sent you!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a fireplace!

Glad you guys enjoyed our inn! Brewster House is a special place, the big bathrooms, 9' tin ceilings, and elegant mantel impressed us greatly as a place people would think they love to come to, when we were looking at places to buy. We love entertaining and hope it shows, thank you!

My wife and I came all the way from England to visit family in Maine and stayed at the Brewster House B&B for a week in January 2014. The accommodation was charming and comfortable, and Mary and Scott were extremely hospitable. Mary is a great cook and not only served up a different two-course gourmet breakfast every morning, but also left out homemade cookies and other treats for us to nibble on every evening. They were very generous with their time, and we enjoyed lovely long chats with them after breakfast. Scott even shoveled out our car and lent us an ice scraper when a storm dumped a foot of snow shortly after out arrival. Freeport is a wonderful shopping destination, and there is lots to do in the winter -- we recommend snowshoeing with the LL Bean Outdoor Discover Schools. Maybe next time we'll try cross-country skiing!

Room Tip: Each room is named after a lighthouse in Maine. Cape Neddick is in the back and quiet. Marshall Poin...

We stayed with our daughter for an overnight shopping venture. The weather wasn't so great but the room and hosts were wonderful. Beds were very comfortable and the Christmas setting was lovely. But most impressive was the breakfast- a multi-course feast featuring banana-stuffed french toast (how does one do that?), poached pears, "lemon eggs" and, most importantly, french press coffee, my favorite. The only negative (and its not really a negative) was my daughter's wish for a conditioner packet along with the shampoo....we managed to survive that. The hosts are perfectionists and we had a wonderful and restful stay. Highly recommend.

We very much enjoyed your family too! Thank you for the note on the conditioner, as we've been considering adding some additional bath supplies to our rooms. See you at your next family get together at Brewster House!!

My husband and I have been frequent visitors to the Brewster House B&B since 2006. It's an annual trek to celebrate our anniversary, and has become a favorite destination for get away weekends, family weekend get-togethers, and 'sistah' reunions. We love it there. When we learned that ownership was changing hands we were hopeful that things would continue, and they have. Mary and Scott have done a marvelous job keeping the Brewster House in line with what we love about it. What's nice is they have added their own stamp to it. The food continues to be exquisite, the comfortable amenities are vast, and the conversation easy to be had. Who know that Mary Gile could tell stories as well as Scott Thomas! We will continue to make this our home away from home! Dont' wait to try it out.

The Brewster House is the ideal place to stay for a quick winter getaway and perfect for holiday shopping. Within walking distance to an abundance of shops and high-end outlet stores, the Brewster House has the warmth and character you would expect in a classic B&B. The inn owners are friendly and helpful and the inn is immaculate. Our room was nicely decorated and very comfortable. The fireplace created a warm and cozy feel during a snowy evening. Breakfast was outstanding, fresh pineapple with toasted coconut and almonds drizzled with vanilla yogurt, stuffed french toast with a mixed berry syrup, an herbed egg soufflé, and crisp bacon. The shared living room with fireplace was beautifully appointed for the holidays and hot cider, cookies, and chocolates were available for guests. This inn is part of the Select Registry group and on our list of favorites.

I have been at the Brewster House a number of times. I enjoy Freeport, ME and the L.L.Bean shopping, but the Brewster House stay just makes it very special. The new owners are wonderful.

The B&B is a very nice place, breakfast is so relaxing and good. Love the treats at night.

I would recommend anyone to stay there..

Room Tip: We enjoyed the West Quoddy Room. The fireplace makes it very nice.

Clean, attractive, yummy breakfast and very friendly. Shopping galore within walking distance! The owners Mary & Scott were always ready to assist us with anything we needed. Coming back from shopping all day to homemade cookies was a perfect ending to our day. Thank you!
