Here at the Brewster Inn Dexter Maine, we get a lot of 1st time B&B guests. So i’ve dedicated this post and indeed a whole page on our Brewster Inn website just for you
Considering a bed and breakfast in Maine for the first time?
B&B’s are a wonderful alternative to the typical hotel and motel accommodations for a Maine family vacation, a honeymoon, a romantic gateaway, or any other occasion. We recognize that it can be intimidating to think of staying in “someone’s home”, but once you enjoy a great stay at a B&B you’ll see that it’s so much better than any other lodging options.
First-time B&B guests are often uncertain of what to expect, so we’ve tried to answer some of the most frequently asked questions, debunk some of the myths, and provide some information specific to The Brewster Inn.
Guests might be afraid they will feel as if they’re intruding on the Innkeepers and that they won’t have any privacy. Each B&B is set up differently, with intentions of making you feel welcome. The Brewster Inn is spacious at over 8,000 sq ft, with a large living room, expansive gardens, screened porch, and patio for reading, conversation, or relaxing as you watch the world go by. The dining room is also available for writing, or playing board games. Our quarters are not connected to these common areas. You’re encouraged to interact with other guests as much, or as little, as you choose. Each guestroom has a lock on the door and a private bathroom. You’re also given a key to the front door to come and go as you wish.
Breakfast is one of the great values included in the B&B experience. New B&B guests may feel they will be dictated to as to what time they have to eat. Each B&B has different routines for breakfast. The Brewster Inn serves a buffet-style breakfast, 7 days a week from 8-10am, to allow you to eat at the time you want. Breakfast includes juice, milk, coffee, tea, fresh fruit, fruit salad, breads, cereals, and a different hot serving each day. Please make your hosts aware of any special dietary issues or food allergies.
B&B guestrooms are not all one cookie-cutter price like hotels. The Brewster Inn guestrooms are available at a range of prices to suit the most budget-conscious traveler to the guest that would love everything. There are even specials available throughout the year and a guest loyalty program. Please feel free to browse the room selection on our Web site and discuss them with us. Brewster Inn guestrooms include free: Wi-Fi, LCD TV with HD cable, DVD players, iPod/iPhone clock radio docking stations, a selection of available movies, and plush luxury robes to wear during your stay. The Honeymoon Suite and Game Room each have a small fridge and microwave oven. For all other guestrooms, there is a microwave and fridge available in the dining room for your use. Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are also available throughout the day. If you’d like something stronger, a good selection of beer and wines are available for purchase too.
