“A Special Place That Truly Sets Itself Apart”
Reviewed 1 June 2009

We had the unfortunate opportunity to only get one night to experience this phenomenal bed and breakfast. Working for a luxury hotel company, my significant other and I are extremely discerning travelers, and can usually find something wrong with every place we stay. Not so at the Brewster House. The facility is well maintained, immaculately appointed and spotlessly clean. Scott and Ruth have added neat touches like a hot-water maker in each room for tea, make-up removal kits in the bathroom, and even have their own custom soap and shampoo! Being on the cusp of summer we were concerned about heat and humidity, but an air conditioner was in the room. And, there was free wi-fi throughout the house (something I can't even get for free when staying at my own hotels).

Breakfast was unique and home-made, served in a well-appointed dining room with a first course of fresh fruit and a blueberry muffin.

However, what really sets Brewster House apart are the proprietors, Ruth and Scott. They clearly make it a mission to create the very best experiences for guests at their inn. For example:
- My significant other is training for a marathon and needed to run 12 miles this morning. Off the top of his head, Scott recommended a scenic route that near perfectly matched the required mileage.
- When she got back from her run after breakfast was served, it was absolutely no problem! They were happy to serve us later, and even took time to chat with us to ensure we had company.
- You felt as though Ruth and Scott were always there if you needed anything, but never hovering to make you feel awkward.

We hope you try out this remarkable establishment and have as great a time as we did during our all too short of a stay.

Wow, we're blushing! We're thrilled with so many kind things people have been saying about Brewster House and about the breakfasts, especially, but this, coming from a guest who works for a top luxury hotel chain, is really high praise.

We hope we can continue to live up to all the nice things that have been said, because we sure enjoy all the wonderful people we meet!

Scott and Ruth made us feel like we were at home. The recommendations of what to see were out of this world. The maps got us to where we were going. The food is to die for and we've never had the same thing twice in our multiple visits. We recommend this place to anyone travelling to Freeport Maine. Give them a call and let them be there for you.

If you are looking for a lodging that will provide lovely rooms, savory breakfasts, and an atmospher that will help you sleep like a baby, then you need to stay at the Brewster House Bed and Breakfast. There are many, many, reveiws that have been given before mine and they all describe perfectly how wonderful the stay is with Ruth and Scott. What a pleasure it was to spend only a few short days at their home.

This B&B is outstanding. A beautiful historic house in excellent condition, with well-appointed rooms, immaculately clean, and conviently located within easy walking distance of the shopping area of Freeport. The owners are helpful, friendly folks who made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The food was wonderful and served in a beautiful setting.

Delightful B&B! The accommodations were well kept and clean. The full breakfasts were fabulous! This B&B is a short walking distance to shopping & restaurants.

I read wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor before I went, and I fully agree! The Brewster House is all that a B&B should be. Great rooms, dreamy linens, wonderful breakfasts. But the best were the helpful,professional and friendly owners. The were both so attentive, but not in an overbearing way, and really went out of their way to make sure all guests had a great time in their beautiful area. Oh, for a real treat try the baked pineapple which is on their website-"to die for".

My wife and I and her 70 year old cousin shared a suite on the 3rd floor of the Brewster House for 2 nights. Scott and Ruth welcomed us very warmly and we were made to feel very much at home. The rooms were very nice, as were the common areas, and the breakfast and snacks were excellent. There were nice little touches, such as wine glasses and a corkscrew on the fridge and coffee makers in each room. The location is excellent as it was only a short walk, in the rain, to L.L. Bean's and the other shops and restaurants in town, Although as Scott and Ruth informed us, "there is more the Freeport then just shopping". Overall, having stayed in several B & B's over this trip, I feel it was the welcoming attitude of our hosts that made the stay most enjoyable. I would recommend the Brewster House to anyone.
