Cancellations require seven days advance notice. If you cancel less than seven days before the arrival date, you will incur a charge for one night’s lodging. No shows, early departures, and cancellations made within seventy-two hours of arrival date also pay full charge. Covid related cancellations are treated the same as other cancellations.*

We may require an advance deposit (or full payment) for some popular weekends. (graduations, major holidays, or larger groups, including weddings) These deposits are non-refundable within 30 days of arrival. We may also require a minimum length of stay at such times.

The posted rates are based on double occupancy. (there is an additional charge of $20 per night for each additional person 12 years of age or over). Rates do not include 9% Maine sales tax (unless indicated, as for some of our specials and packages). We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Single night stays may be possible in certain circumstances. (Single night stays incur an additional $25 cleaning fee). You can call us directly at 207-924-3130. (Single night stays may be booked on our website. You must choose the single night rate, however. If you choose the multi night rate for your single night stay, the booking will be adjusted to the higher rate and resent to you.)


*Make cancellations directly by phone or after sending an acknowledged email.(voice mail messages do not constitute cancellation confirmation). We recommend third party travel insurance for any cancellation concerns. While we understand the occasional need for last minute cancellations, these cancellations do significantly affect us. Consequently, our cancellation policy is non-negotiable. Cancellations due to health reasons fall under the same policy. Covid is now a known health/travel risk and regular policies apply. We cannot help with third party reservation cancellations. The third party must be contacted to cancel their reservations.

What Our Guests are Saying:

Brewster Inn in Dexter Maine should be on every bucket list! We have always admired the Brewster Inn when we visited our relatives in Dexter. We recently lost our uncle and returned for his funeral. This was our first time staying at a B&B and what a treat it was! Mark and Tina were wonderful hosts. The Inn is beautiful, you can tell they have put many hours of love into the Inn to bring it to its original grandeur. The breakfasts were yummy, they are talented cooks. We will leave you guessing on what they serve so you have to visit to find out.

We rented the game room and it didn’t disappoint. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room spotless, and the linens high quality. Whether you are a first time B&Ber or frequently stay at one, this is a must! Maine has a lot to offer and this is a perfect place to stay while you explore. Thank you Mark & Tina for the memorable experience.” Sanibel
