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

 

 

So what am I going to blog about this year at the Brewster Inn Dexter Maine? I’ve decided anything and everything. Of course there’s going to be updates about whats happening at the Brewster Inn, but I’m also going to expand it. I’m going to write about events and happenings in the area including the city of Bangor that’s only 40min from here. I’m going to tell you about businesses that I work with locally that provide services for my guests whether you want to know about the restaurants I enjoy going to or where do you rent snowmobiles in the area, where is  the best river to be white water rafting and of course if you want to see moose, who is the guide I recommend for that.

I’ll be telling you all about great hikes, scenery and attractions to see, museums, theatres, where can you see the remains of a crashed B52 bomber that is now a memorial site not too far from here, who are the bands playing at the Waterfront Concerts in Bangor this year. I might even occasionally give the odd review of a great product I’ve found. Some of my blog posts will include video including a complete video blog from time to time

The Brewster Inn Dexter Maine is a four season destination and I’m going to show you everything you can see and do in my part of Maine

In the 7  years I’ve been here, a lot has happened and I’ve learned a lot too. It’s been busy, incredibly busy actually, and the Brewster Inn keeps growing and getting busier every year, but now as I move into my next year here in Dexter, I’m hoping to free up some time to be able to make the blog more regular now. I’ve read up a lot of stuff on blogging from a lot of people that tell you the right way to do things. Well the best way to learn is to write, write and write, and that is what I’m going to do probably about once a week. If I miss a week, look for a couple the next week or so. Nothing too long, but just enough to give you good information hopefully each time you revisit the blog..
