Old charming mansion on a beautiful lake. Rooms are each different but all are spectacular. World class restaurant and the Sunday Brunch is to die for. The staff throughout are incredibly gracious. An experience you will not forget.

Great place for cocktails; servers were very friendly and you cannot beat the view! Even though we were there on a rainy early evening, the view was just stunning. Additionally the decor is very nice; beautiful quaint place!!!

This is our 3rd stay here at the Brewster, and we have yet to be dissatisfied. RM. 4 has an amazing view, the tub and shower are wonderful. Couldn't be happier. The staff has always kind and worked well with our unusual schedule.

Thanks for the kind words! Doesn't room #4 have the prettiest view! We are getting a beautiful new jacuzzi in just a few days time as well to make that room even more stunning! Thanks for being a customer, as always we appreciate your business!

Do not check into Room 23: the jacuzzi does not work, the TV did not work. It shut off after 10 minutes, and no one was able to resolve the issue. Do not check into this room. Manager did nothing to help. Offered neither a refund, nor an apology. Beyond disappointed.

Thank you so much for the feedback. I do remember talking to you this past week, and I completely understand your grievances. I apologize for the jacuzzi having issues, we are looking into it as I type. The television did work properly and once we showed you how to use the remotes, you ceased to have any issues. I did...

Stayed here for 5 days, beautiful place, friendly staff. Its very quiet considering its right off a semi busy street. The back views are amazing. Both the main house and carriage house is well kept and very clean.

We have fond memories of this place. We stopped in just before 5 and were greeted by Kirk the Sommelier he seated us in the bar dining area with a view that was spectacular.

$200 plus paid for a substantially sized bedroom and tiny bathroom. There was absolutely nothing pampering about this bed and breakfast. None of the usual special toiletries in the bathroom. No in-room coffee facilities. An empty ice bucket left guests to walk down two flights of stairs to fill it up. A so-called continental breakfast - without even a greeting...
