Very familiar with Brewster where my husband's parents live, my husband and I came up from New Jersey for a celebration of family birthdays and stayed with his brother and sister-in-law for the first three days of the visit. We had a wonderful time with them (we were called "lucky charms" because the Cape had been having rain for a record number of days in a row before we came) and were delighted to try a stay at Isaiah Clark House for our last two days. HOLY TOLEDO! What a beautifully appointed and clean bed-and-breakfast. Our hosts, Philomena and Steve, really knew how to receive and take care of guests. Our room was lovely with a fireplace and canopied king-size bed--a big surprise, because we had reserved a queen-size!--that was gloriously comfortable, compared to the bed we had just left. Our bedroom was in the front of the house and was very comfortable, private and quiet. Included in the room were a couple of bottles of water, terry bathrobes (if you needed them) and, for my stage in life, central air conditioning. (I was going to capitalize "central air conditioning" but decided not to be so dramatic--but you get my drift about its importance, don't you?) We were across from the guest's pantry where you could use the refrigerator, ice buckets, glasses and dishes or eat a snack at the table and stools. Our bathroom was across the hall (it IS a period house, after all), but I never felt any lack of privacy moving between the two rooms because the innkeepers have strategically placed drapes that insure privacy in the hallway, if you want to use them. (I wouldn't have thought to install that--that's why I don't run an inn.) Taking a look at the other rooms before we left, I don't think there's a bad one in the house--all have something to offer, are decorated beautifully and maintained meticulously. The property was much bigger than we thought (acres!), and we were allowed to explore without restriction. It was very pretty on the lawn with different places to sit and read, visit or veg. We loved the breakfast in the morning--much more civilized than the pop tart I toast (maybe) at home--and the muffins and hospitality table with coffee, tea or cocoa left out all day. Steve even brought out plastic bags in the morning placed by the muffins in case you wanted to take something to the beach (very thoughtful--I'm sure it was Philomena's idea--just kidding, Steve). The Isaiah Clark House is so nicely situated in Brewster along 6A (the picturesque main drag) and within walking distance of some galleries and stores, even museums. Everything adds up to a lovely, lovely place to stay. It's funny how my husband I both thought we were still with familly because we were made to feel so welcome. I WANT TO GO BACK RIGHT NOW!
