    Historical Traveler Reviews Brewster By The Sea

    Perfection Time and Time Again


    Within the past year my partner and I have been to Brewster By The Sea three times and we plan to travel back for many more great memories at this wonderful bed and breakfast. I am hard pressed to try to describe the "awesomeness" experienced at BBTS, but I can say that every day at BBTS is a PERFECT day. If you are truly looking for a perfect and wonderful vacation filled with amazing hospitality, comfortable accomodations and delicious food you MUST stay at Brewster By The Sea!!

    Friendly, warm and welcoming does not even begin to describe the inn keepers who go out of their way to make each guest feel at home. If you need a vacation, this is your destination for true relaxation!

    Wonderful Brewster By The Sea


    "Comfortable country elegance" may be the best phrase one can use to describe

    the experience of staying at Brewster By The Sea. In their third year of innkeeping,

    Donna and Byron Cain tirelessly make every effort to ensure that guests enjoy

    themselves, whether they want to relax at the inn or need guidance in exploring the

    many local attractions that Cape Cod offers to new and seasoned travelers alike.

    Among the many amenities that you will enjoy are a full breakfast (which the Cains

    will gladly tailor to meet special needs); a butler's pantry stocked with cookies, teas,

    coffee, and ice; and nightly turndown service, the perfect segue to the feather

    mattresses that ease you into a comfortable night's sleep.

    Some travelers may prefer neat accommodations, others may prefer clean accommo-

    dations, but all will be happy to know that BBTS provides neatness and cleanliness

    without sacrificing taste in decor or functionality of living space. The surrounding

    property is also well-maintained, and the summer visitor will enjoy the abundant

    poolside hydrangeas and beautiful adjoining garden.

    The personal favorites my wife and I have grown fond of at the inn are almost too many

    to list: any of the rooms in the Orchard House, the Garden Room in the main house, the

    comfort of the keeping room, fresh pineapple and prosciutto for breakfast, chocolate

    truffles for turndown, and don't miss out on Nana's homemade red raspberry jam.

    The rates at BBTS are very competitive, and the value per dollar spent may be hard

    to find at other inns. In less than two years, we have been to BBTS six times, and

    with each stay we find something new, re-decorated, or improved since the previous

    trip. Byron and Donna's boundless enthusiasm has left its mark on one of the premier

    inns not just on the Cape but perhaps anywhere.

    Highly Recommended


    My husband and I stayed in the Refugio Suite for two nights in September and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was very comfortable, and we especially appreciated that it was quiet and private. We don't usually stay in B&Bs because so many of them lack these qualities. The bed was truly a luxury. The owners are a gracious and thoughtful couple who go out of their way to accomodate their guests, yet are never bothersome or overbearing. They are the perfect hosts. And the breakfasts are outstanding. We couldn't say enough good things about this inn. We hope to return early and often.

    Best Inn in Brewster


    We were married in September in Brewster and our guests stayed at B+Bs all over the village. Brewster by The Sea got top remarks from all our guests. The owners went out of their way to accommodate the staggered arrivals (greeting guests who checked in as late as 1 AM, allowing guests to use the sauna late at night after the wedding), and everyone who stayed had a great time. The people who run this inn take it very seriously and it shows: great rooms, amazing food, a wonderful library of books, and an attention to detail. The owner even drove one of our guests to church on Sunday morning because she didn't have a car. This is the most elegant, personalized Inn in the mid Cape.

    Comfort in the Cape


    A B&B with many amenities.Excellent breakfast.Very clean and well run.



    My husband and I stayed at Brewster by the Sea for two nights (it was booked for the rest of our stay) and absolutely loved this b&b. We stayed in the Sea Meadow room which has a jacuzzi tub and fireplace. It was nicely decorated and very comfortable. The entire place is extremely clean. There is a great pool surrounded by beautiful flowering gardens and a large hot tub. Both were the perfect way to relax after a day of bicycling and visiting the beach. Donna and Byron were helpful, nice and attentive without being overbearing. They made great recommendations for lunches, dinners, sunsets and beaches. We ate at Brewster Fish House (good), Mahoney's (great atmosphere), Abbici's (very good) and The Lobster Pot in Provincetown (fun). The breakfast was a three course delight and presented with true flair. I also had a massage by the pool which was very relaxing. We really enjoyed ourselves and plan to return.

    A little bit of luxury


    We have just returned from Boston, which was experiencing the worst weather since 1917. In the middle of our trip we had booked an over night stay at The Brewster by the sea, Cape Cod, MA.

    Even though the weather was awful we decided to still head down to the cape. On arrival at the The Brewster we were warmly welcomed by Byron one of the inn keepers, he showed us around and we chatted for a while. Unfortunately we were unable to use the outdoor pool and jacuzzi but as we stood inside and looked out we could imagine what it must look like on a beautiful day with all the wooden decking, lounging area, gazebo and beautiful flower beds. We were shown to our room which was so warm and inviting and every little attention to detail was obvious, from the feature gas fire to the most comfy bed I have every slept in and the sherry which soon made us feel warm and at home.

    At breakfast we were greeted by Byron and Donna who's home made blueberry pancakes were to die for. This is certainly the gem that we expected it to be and more. We shall definitely be returning, but will be the summer as I know there is so much more to appreciate in this little oasis.

    Memory making B&B


    "Tusen Takk"(Norwegian - Thousand Thanks), Byron and Donna, for having an absolutely top notch Bed & Breakfast. Our trips to the Inn have been memory-making weekends - from the beautifully appointed rooms and "sleep-on-a-cloud" beds to the delicious made from scratch gourmet breakfasts. We so enjoyed the afternoon teas sampling Nana's homemade molasses cookies and other goodies. These make for very pleasant stays, but more than that, the attention to detail, the concern for their guests' comfort and pleasure make you realize the innkeepers' genuine love of people and their effort to give 110%. If you go once, you'll plan to stay at Brewster by the Sea on your next trip to the Cape. Guaranteed!

    European Charm


    I just had the opportunity to stay at the Beautiful Brewster by the Sea Hotel. What an experience.

    Not only is the Inn lovely but the Hosts are soooo.... charming and helpful.

    My visit could not have been more relaxing or pleasant, nor my room more perfect. It was like stepping back in time when things were quieter and luxury was common place.

    Deluxe B & B


    The best B&B we have stayed in on Cape Cod.

    Donna and Byron were perfect hosts, they really looked after us and made us feel very welcome. Their knowledge of the area was great, and the location of the B & B is ideal, in the centre of the Cape. We stayed in the Sea Meadow room, which was just beautiful, the attention to detail is amazing. The bed was definitely pure luxury, like sleeping on a cloud ! Unfortunately, due to the weather we were unable to make use of the pool and the hot tub.

    Highly recommended.

    As we returned to the car we could hear wonderful Blues type music coming from the garden of a bar called The Brown Jug.

    Being in no particular rush to leave, we pulled up two chairs and happily sat with drinks in hand listening to this wonderful musician playing on his acoustic guitar and mouth organ.

    Hi everyone.

    It's a sunny day in Cape Cod, and after almost two very busy weeks, time for a down day, to allow for some housekeeping and a rest. We've, respectively, swum and run this morning, and now we're sitting outside, watching and listening to a woodpecker creating a summer house in the bush that surrounds our latest home away from home. It's the sort of day where the biggest decision we have to make ...
