The Brewster Inn in Dexter Maine is a great base for your Maine vacation. Dexter is the geographical centre of Maine and so by spending numerous nights here as many of my guests do, it enables you to stay in excellent accommodation with great room rates that don’t go up in the summer and autumn when a lot of other properties do put their prices up. You don’t need to worry about making check in times elsewhere or did you repack everything for the umpteenth time after your one night stay. Just use the Brewster Inn as your home away from home, come and go as you please and have a great time exploring all that Maine has to offer.
Everywhere in Maine is within easy reach and just a day trip from the Brewster Inn. You can be on the coast in less than an hour exploring the coastal towns, rocky coastline and lighthouses along coastal Rt 1, or by going in the opposite direction just 50min away we have the beautiful Moosehead Lake and Mt Katahdin region of Maine. Here you can hike, go on moosewatching, wildlife and waterfall tours, canoe, kayak, snowmobile, ATV, birdwatch or white water rafting. In the autumn when the leaves change colour, you’ll see some amazing colourful scenery all around. I can help you with all of this. I have a great knowledge of where to go and what to see along the way, who to contact for moosewatching, snowmobile rentals or white water rafting etc.
Bangor, one of the big cities in Maine is just 45min away. Here you have the Waterfront Concerts, Stephen King the horror writers home as well as Stephen King location tours, the new Cross Insurance indoor arena, Hollywood Slots and Casino, plenty of shopping, museums, great places to eat and activities for the kids.
The Brewster Inn is just 20min off I95 which goes north and south through the State. This means that a lot more day trips are possible, whether its outlet shopping in Freeport or a visit to Maine’s biggest city, Portland, Bar Harbor and Arcadia National Park. There are also 3 State parks all within easy reach of The Brewster Inn, Lily Bay, Peaks Kenny and Baxter, which is named after Governor Baxter who was Governor of Maine right before Governor Brewster, who was the original owner of the property that is now the Brewster Inn.
You could even get your passport and go across the border to Quebec and visit Quebec City which is very cosmopolitan and has a great European feel to it
All this and more will appear in future blog posts. If your planning on coming to Maine and are considering staying at the Brewster Inn, give me a call and I can give you all the information you need to have the best time on vacation possible whilst staying here.
