We booked 4 nights here after leaving Quebec Canada on our road trip this year. What a surprise we got when along with our confirmation by email we received a request from the innkeeper Mark Stephens saying as he was also originally from Cheltenham UK and has been in Dexter for 7 years now? Whenever he get guests from England staying he likes to phone them to find out what they would like to see while staying with him? We were so shocked to receive such a request from a caring person and replied that we would love to talk to Mark and supplied our home number. We arranged for a call in the evening so we were both in and waited for our phone to ring? when it did this man on the other end introduced himself as Mark told us all about his Brewster Inn B&B history & location and then asked us what we wanted to see each of our 4 days we stayed with him? We had done some research about the area but it was great that this caring innkeeper was on the phone making suggestions of what roads to take and where we could travel easily in a day to get each of our days jam packed with as much of his state and beyond without worries of getting lost or ending up going somewhere that was not as good as we had hoped it could be? Mark also told us he has maps we can use while there and he also told us of a new Google app called FieldTrip that he and many other caring people in America had written posts in, and it works in the UK as well but as soon as we get into the USA it will start working and giving us much information that we will find very helpful? I hadn't even heard of FieldTrip let alone downloaded it? Mark is a guy we all dream of meeting but somehow we never do! Our telephone call from Mark lasted for over an hour and after he hung up we were both so excited about visiting Dexter and The Brewster Inn B&B we can't wait! Since that call Mark sent an email saying he was more than happy to offer us any help he could with other places on our trip as he knows many innkeepers in many states. For that reason we felt this man deserved a pre-visit review as in all our visits to many venues while travelling we have never come across this type of care & customer service from any of them before! So if you are coming through Maine book into The Brewster Inn in Dexter and you too will be getting help after you book from Mark Stephens the Innkeeper that I am sure of?
