We were in Bangor to do the Stephen King tour and wanted to stay in a B&B instead of the usual chain hotel. The Brewster Inn is in Dexter, ME, a short drive from Bangor. We are so glad we chose it, as it was a wonderful weekend getaway spot. Mark, the innkeeper, made us feel like we were guests... More

Thank you for posting a review and choosing to stay with us when in the area. We have many guests who enjoy the Stephen King tour. Especially since Dexter has some unique connections to Stephen King, for example: the opening scenes of Creepshow2 were shot in front of Reny's department store downtown, the front cover of the book Needful Things...

We stayed at The Brewster Inn only one night in the Honeymoon suite (09/18/2016). The house is gorgeous and very clean! Sleeping here makes you feel privileged. Breakfast is fantastic: tea, coffee and homemade cookies. We really felt like home. Mark is a wonderful host! It is very impressing how he managed to set up this place and how he... More

Thank you for your review. While we are partial to all our rooms, we do think the Honeymoon suite is very special. It's perfect for said honeymoon, for a romantic get away, or just someplace luxurious to relax. We're so glad you felt at home and enjoyed the breakfast. Dexter, like many local small towns, is indeed quiet in the... More

Once again, staying at the Brewster Inn did NOT disappoint! We stayed here for a Jimmy Buffet concert in Bangor and the accommodations, the breakfast and the host were wonderful. We were on a motorcycle this trip and found everybody quite welcoming. I would highly recommend the Brewster for other motorcyclists or automobile travelers. We are very much looking forward...

We had a wonderful trip, to visit old friends, and see the sights, in and around Dexter, and very much enjoyed our stay at The Brewster Inn.

We only stayed one night at the Brewster Inn, but enjoyed our brief stay. The inn is beautifully decorated, and Mark is a great host. Breakfast was very nice as well, and as we were traveling quite a distance the next day, we appreciated the buffet-style breakfast which allowed us to check out earlier than at some B&B's. Good value... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
“A touch of England brought to Maine” courtesy of your English host Mark Stephens. A romantic, friendly, incredibly comfortable National Register bed and breakfast located in Dexter, Maine which is just 15 minutes off I95 and 45 minute drive to the Maine coastline, Bangor and the beautiful, scenic Moosehead Lake and Mount Katahdin region of Maine. My knowledge of the area and things to do and see is excellent. Whether you want to go moose watching, white water rafting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, fishing, wildlife watching, snowmobiling, ATV’s, ski-ing, apple picking, antiquing, whatever you want to do, just tell me and I will know the best places to be, things to see and the right people to contact. It’s all about giving my guests the best experience possible in my part of Maine. Stay for a night or maybe a few nights, unpack, treat the Brewster Inn like home, come and go as you please and have a great time. Room prices inc breakfast, Wi-Fi, really comfortable beds, flat panel TV’s. Each guestroom has its own bathroom; some guestrooms have a fridge, microwave or fireplace. The Honeymoon Suite has a large 2 person whirlpool. The Brewster Inn is a former Maine Governor and Government Senators family home and it’s a great place to stay. Have a read of the reviews to see what other guests say. I always try incredibly hard to give every guest that walks through my door, the best stay ever ... more   less
