Charge Me Up!

Charge me up!  This old Queen Anne Victorian is about to rocket into the age of the electric car!!  We are excited to share that as members of Select Registry, in a new partnering enterprise with Tesla automobile company, this Spring we will be installing two electric charging stations for your convenience here at Brewster House.

If you own or have ever given serious consideration to an electric vehicle, one obvious concern is where you can get them charged, especially in the context of traveling.  As the premier and most experienced international manufacturer of electric vehicles, Tesla has taken this opportunity to expand their existing charging network to include participating Select Registry inns  Of course, they are not the only manufacturer building battery powered cars, so these installations will include both a charger specific to Teslas, and a second universal charger adaptable to any other such powered auto.

Our understanding is that Teslas have a range upwards of 250 miles/ charge.  From an economic point of view, you might find it interesting to note that @ $.12/ kilowatt hour, a full charge costs about $6!  Their cars are beautiful, quiet, and with no motor to fill the front or drive shaft, they are very roomy inside and have enormous luggage capacity.  See for yourself @!

From our perspective (& yours we hope), Brewster House will gain a special capability in offering owners of all electric vehicles (yes, motorcycles too soon) a beautiful and relaxing option to go away and enjoy their hard-earned vacation time without the stress of wondering where or how to power up their batteries.  Make your reservation now @, we’re already taking reservations for the summer and fall of 2015!
