We recently stayed at the beautiful Brewster Inn on a trip to northern Canada. Our one night stay was memorable and we certainly plan on returning to this historic bed and breakfast. Everything in our room was impeccable including the bedding. The bed was so comfortable with wonderful linens. The next morning Mark cooked a fantastic breakfast casserole and many...

We had an excellent stay at Brewster Inn two weeks ago. Mark, the manager, went out of his way to make us comfortable and welcome. The beds were very comfortable, and the sheets were very soft.

What a lovely place. The area is very quiet. The house is beautiful and interesting. Not much around the immediate area, but there are a few decent places to eat not far away.

My sister lives the next town over from Dexter and had recommended this inn. Mark the owner was good enough to let us check in a bit early, as we came off of a long drive.

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 stayed one night in early August, before heading home. We took a small-ish room on the second floor, but it was nice enough and adequate for our needs and our budget.

A lovely dinner for two in the tavern. There was music on the lawn, where many boaters were congregating. We split the generous mussels with Andouille and Cajun cream--they were fresh and delicious. The Brewster's Veal Atlantis still great every time. We'll be back for sure!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
“A touch of England brought to Maine” courtesy of your English host Mark Stephens. A romantic, friendly, incredibly comfortable National Register bed and breakfast located in Dexter, Maine which is just 15 minutes off I95 and 45 minute drive to the Maine coastline, Bangor and the beautiful, scenic Moosehead Lake and Mount Katahdin region of Maine. My knowledge of the area and things to do and see is excellent. Whether you want to go moose watching, white water rafting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, fishing, wildlife watching, snowmobiling, ATV’s, ski-ing, apple picking, antiquing, whatever you want to do, just tell me and I will know the best places to be, things to see and the right people to contact. It’s all about giving my guests the best experience possible in my part of Maine. Stay for a night or maybe a few nights, unpack, treat the Brewster Inn like home, come and go as you please and have a great time. Room prices inc breakfast, Wi-Fi, really comfortable beds, flat panel TV’s. Each guestroom has its own bathroom; some guestrooms have a fridge, microwave or fireplace. The Honeymoon Suite has a large 2 person whirlpool. The Brewster Inn is a former Maine Governor and Government Senators family home and it’s a great place to stay. Have a read of the reviews to see what other guests say. I always try incredibly hard to give every guest that walks through my door, the best stay ever ... more   less
