Neither my boyfriend nor I (24 & 23 years old) had ever been to a Bed & Breakfast before our stay here, and, at first, we weren’t sure what to expect. On the drive from Brooklyn, he’d said he didn’t know if it would be “our thing,” and I was a bit nervous we might not have much privacy. We were both happily wrong.
Upon our arrival, Steve welcomed us with warmth and a firm handshake, a tour of the house and grounds (including bits of history), pamphlets and recommendations galore, thorough answers to all our questions, even some tales of celebrities he’d encountered while innkeeping here. He invited us to explore the grounds on our own terms, to hang out on the patio or in the living rooms whenever we wanted – basically, he was welcoming us home.
Our room (Deborah) was clean, the light bright when the windows were open and soft when they were closed, and I don’t know if I have words to describe that bed. We both agreed it was the most comfortable bed we’d ever slept in. I’d say the same for the blanket and sheets – so plush and soft. We even noticed the room smelled particularly good – like vanilla, we guessed… but if you go and you have a different thought about what smell that is, let me know! There were bottles of water and cozy robes waiting for us. Because our bathroom was across the hall, the robes were useful in the middle of the night for getting there – although we did have our own private hallway, if we chose to close the door and pull the curtain closed. The bathroom was spacious.
Philomena’s breakfasts were delicious, and kept us full well into the day. Steve served us juice and fresh fruit first, followed by a homemade main event (cranberry/walnut French toast the first day, feta/spinach quiche the next – our favorite, cornmeal pancakes on our final day) and a meat side (Canadian bacon, turkey sausage, sausage). He always asked if we wanted seconds.
We didn’t spend much time at the house – we were busy wandering around Cape Cod, seeing what there was to see – but the last night, after getting home around 11 from Martha’s Vineyard, Steve greeted us, asked how our trip was, and pointed out a bird that had been living on top of one of the lawn’s trees. My boyfriend and I went back to the room for a few minutes, unloaded from our day, then sat down in some lawn chairs in the backyard, opened a bottle of wine, and looked at the stars (which we don’t get much of in Brooklyn). It was perfectly quiet, and we had the whole backyard to ourselves.
As for location, we didn’t spend much time in Brewster itself. But we found that it was centered just between the places many consider to be Cape Cod’s main attractions – Provincetown and Martha’s Vineyard. All in all, the grounds were lush, the room incredibly comfortable, the food delicious, and the innkeepers welcoming.
