Special events


The Brewster Inn Dexter Maine is incredibly happy to be a part of Google’s new app “Field Trip” available for IOS and Android. Field Trip is an excellent new discovery app showcasing great places to stay or eat and  things to see and do either in your home town or city or for when your traveling through a particular area. It’s perfect for discovering the hidden gems that you never knew about.  Best of all its free and that’s always good.

I’m lucky enough to be one of the writers for the app. I do this through Go Trippin which is one of the websites that feeds Field Trip. My page on the Go Trippin website will over time become an online concierge adding more reasons for my guests to come and stay here at the Brewster Inn

 

Heres a video that explains more

 

When your traveling through a particular area and you have notifications turned on within the app. You’ll find that you get notifications that are colourful cards giving information and photos on “discoveries”. There will also be driving and contact info and on some cards you might even find a tip or deal.  It’s a great app and well worth downloading to see what it can do.

The Go Trippin website that I write for that feeds Field Trip is a team effort by many innkeepers from all around America. When you visit that site, you’ll see drop down menus which have locations broken down into States and then towns or cities where the particular discoveries are . You’ll see the “Go Now” section which categorizes all the postings into different groups like “Go Eat, Go Stay, Go Play and Go Adventure”. Next there is a “Happenings” menu which features local happenings like (in my area) the Greater Bangor Beer Festival, The Maine Whoopie Pie Festival where thousands of people come to pay homage to Maine’s Whoopie Pie and the Piscataquis Balloon Festival. Lastly there’s the “Tips and Deals” section which will give you great insider tips and deals at particular places.

I’m excited to be a part of this and being able to show all my guests at the Brewster Inn Dexter just what there is to see and do in my part of Maine

 

 

Something i’ve always wanted is to get more international guests staying  at the Brewster Inn here in Dexter Maine. We’ve always had a small amount find us on the web each year BUT i wanted to work harder again to get more. In 2009 i signed up to be part of the contingent of attractions and accommodations group representing Maine  at the annual getting together  from all the New England States at the Discover New England international tourism summit where they all  promote their business and area in short 8min meetings to a large group of US and European based receptive and tour operators from countries such as UK, France, Italy and Germany.

The “buyers” as i’ll call them are broken into groups like the ” receptives” that are companies that make the tour packages for the trade such as Travalco AlliedTPro and Tourmappers . These are all  companies that the Brewster Inn has contracts with now to supply our product to the world tourism market.  There were many tour operators there too like  Bon Voyage and Audley Travel and America As You Like It 

Already in  3 summits as i’m now just back from the latest one held at the Omni Mt Washington resort in NH we have a total of 5 receptive contracts with hopefully a couple more contracts to come. The bookings are coming in with just last year alone about 40 room nights from the contracts that we now have. Each year should get better and better as following on from the 27 meetings that i had at this years summit, i’m now talking to the tour operators about who we have contracts with that they can buy from and what packages we are planning on putting together so that when guests come they can experience real Maine like moosewatching, white water rafting, snowmobiling or hiking to name just a few.

Attending the DNE summit as a small tourism related  business in Maine is a great way to network and show off our part of the USA to the world. Its hard work, takes a lot of planning but the long term benefits for the Brewster Inn could and hopefully will be significant. I’ll be at the next summit in 2012.

The snow is falling and lots of it too. We must of got a minimum of 12″ last night and of course theres more forecast soon. ITS 85 that runs right by us has not been so busy as there was still not a major amount of snow on the ground but i think the snow in the last 24hrs changes all that. The sleds are already running more now so the snow will be a lot more compacted and better to run on.

The Brewster Inn is pleased to announce that we will be running all the same snowmobile special offers that we did very successfully last year. Come and stay at the Brewster Inn with great bed and breakfast accommodation from as little as $34.75 per person per night inc breakfast, great rooms with dvd players and wi-fi. All rooms have their own bathrooms. And NEW this year ALL rooms have their own climate control thermostats for total guest comfort. This will appear on another blog post soon or if you check in on us via our Facebook fan page you’ll already see all the big new additions we have here right now

Winters here now at the Brewster Inn. Theres plenty of snow on the gound, the snowmobilers are out on the trail right next to us and business is good!

We’re busy marketing towards more winter and spring business at the minute and its working well.

We have new brochures just printed which will start to find their way out and about in the coming days all designed by my excellent designer Kim!

 

I think i’ve shown these first products before but they’re worth showing again..

Our 9×4 rack card that goes into all the tourist information centres in the State as well as various other establishments. It will soon be reprinted with some new photos due to the room changes that we’ve made but the wordage will stay as is

 

 

Our “Thank You” card that we send out to guests when they leave after a stay. We sell these too at 5 for $8 or $2 each. They’re blank inside and can be used for all occassions. On the front they have a beautiful painting of the house and on the back theres an image of our sign and a brief history of the Brewster

 

 

Next we have our Scrapbooking and Craft brochure that is aimed at groups of artisans and crafters who want to get away from their normal lives and come to the Brewster and work on their scrapbooks, quilts, beading or whatever their skill maybe and either just stay for a few hours, a day and night or a weekend. Various packages all inc food and lodging are available on request. These brochures are also available on www.brewsterinn.com or by giving us a call and we’d be very happy to mail one out to you.

We’ve already done a few of these events and they work really well and we love doing them here
