Awesome stay, Mark, the innkeeper is an excellent host. He works with you to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We have stayed at the Brewster several times over the years and Mark has always been good to us. The rooms are elegantly decorated and for the price, it is very competitive. I would recommend to the budget conscience...

My family sadly needed to visit the Dexter area for a funeral. Mark was gracious and kind and made things as easy and comfortable as possible for us. The Inn itself is stunning and has been lovingly restored. Each room had a distinct and charm personality and the breakfast Mark prepared in the morning was flawless and had a real...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during Columbus Day weekend for Goat School. This was our first stay at a B&B and we loved it! We stayed in the Strawberry Room, which was small and cozy, nicely decorated, and the bed soooo COMFY. I am typically a terrible sleeper at hotels and unfamiliar places in general, but...

Charming Inn. Mark the innkeeper went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. Provided us with points of interest and places to eat in the area. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We would return again if our travels bring us back to Maine.

For our annual trip up North we stay at the Inn. We've been visiting Mark, the owner, now for at least 6 years and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

The common areas were tastefully decorated and inviting. Everything was spotlessly clean. Our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Mark has paid attention to all of the little touches which make a guest feel pampered (ie: robes, full-length mirror, complimentary water, etc.) Mark recommended local restaurants which were excellent. The breakfast was substantial, healthy,and delicious! I would recommend this lovely...

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
