Brewster house, built 1875,
picture taken 1893.

The first house on the site of what is now our historic Maine inn was built for the Brewster family in the 1800s.

This house was torn down to the supporting walls in 1934 and replaced by the building you see today. Built for Senator and Mrs. Ralph Owen Brewster, the home was the scene of socializing and parties, as well as political gatherings.

The conflict between Senator Brewster and Howard Hughes has been well documented in the recent film, The Aviator, in which Alan Alda portrays the Senator.

In 1988, the home was opened as The Brewster Inn, a bed and breakfast, and was entered into the National Register of Historic Places.

Since our purchase in 1997, we have replaced all wallpaper and paint, added several rooms, improved the lighting and heating, and planted many new bulbs and perennials. If you would like to know more about the history of the house, just let us know!
