You know its January as The Brewster Inn Dexter Maine blog suddenly reappears again. Its been a while since I last posted but this time (yes I know I’ve said that a few times) I really do plan to keep it going. I’ve read a lot of stuff on blogging and looking at blogs, and I’ve been squirreling away lots of ideas to make it happen.
For all my Brewster Inn guests that have been to see me since my last blog post in May 2012, well you’ll know all about the continued change at the Brewster Inn. Its been busy here, no actually its been crazy here, but the business keeps getting better and better every year and 2013 was the best year yet.
Here is a picture of the change of colour in the living room. Its gone from the old yellow colour to a beautiful green with white and crimson accents
See the refinished floors in the photos above. Those are the original red oak floors but with the dark stain now removed. It looks amazing if I say so myself.
The green wall colour is a historic shade and all the trim, doors and mantlepiece are now white. A line of crimson goes all round the room just under the ceiling. Window seat cushions have also been replaced. Images of how good they look to follow in another blog post. This year we also plan to start a rug replacement programme that will probably take a couple of years to complete. The crimson rug in the picture was moved from another room. Looks good!
So I think that will do for my first post. Need to save my ideas for next time.
What would I like you to do now? Keep an eye on the blog, add your email address in the “subscribe” box, share the Brewster Inn blog with your family and friends via the social buttons at the top of this blog post. If you’ve stayed at the Brewster Inn before, come back and see me again. If your reading this and have never stayed here, well come on over!

Things are constantly changing here at the Brewster Inn in Dexter Maine. They’ve been changing since the day I arrived and I’m happy to say the changes have always been positive.
Some of the recent and upcoming changes include: Hopefully finishing the gardens this summer and adding some lovely fencing around a couple sides. I can’t wait to see how the butterfly garden looks when it blooms out this year. The lilac bushes are already budding out. The pond will also have some changes to help it be more noticeable and accessible to guests. The flag out front now has a light that illuminates it at night.
I take great pride in trying to give all my guests a comfortable and relaxing night’s sleep. Guests have already voiced approval on the recent changes with guestroom additions of new mattress toppers, chamber pillows. New luxurious sheets are on the way and will soon be added to each room. I know the sheets are going to be a big hit, as a few guests who’ve tried them out have already been trying to purchase them from me! One guest even remarked on a Trip Advisor post that his wife described the sheets as “sleeping on a cloud wrapped in a ray of sunshine”.
The change into spring/summer temps prompts some changes to the breakfast menu. I’ve been trying out several new recipes. The fruit crumble is a new addition and has been a big success. This week I made some delicious pumpkin muffins with cheesecake filling. My recipe file is expanding quickly and I can’t wait to share the successes with you. I’m just looking at Pecan and honey french toast. Guests will also soon be dining on brand new dishes that arrived this week.
Several other changes are going on as well and I’ll let you in on some of them in my next blog. Hint: there’s more “going green” around here. Literally! One thing I am sure of, is that all the changes that have happened, and will be happening, continue to make everything better here at the Brewster Inn.
Hope to see you soon!
