Brewster House is dedicated to providing comfortable, luxurious and unique Freeport, Maine lodging at its bed and breakfast inn. Our policies ensure all guests enjoy the very best experience possible, so please read on.
Bookings and Cancellations: A credit card is required to reserve a room at Brewster House. We will charge your first night’s stay when booked. For reservations in excess of 3 days, we require a 50% deposit. Full payment is due upon arrival. Seven days advance notice is normally required for cancellation. If a cancellation is made less than seven days before the arrival date at the inn, and we are unable to rent the room, we will retain a charge equal to one night’s lodging. In the case of rentals over 3 days, we will retain the full deposit, returning whatever days we were able to rent beyond 50% of the time period reserved. Any cancellation will incur a $25 cancellation fee to cover our transaction costs.
For whole inn rentals, please call to discuss.
For some popular weekends (college graduations, campers weekends in July, etc.), rates at our B&B may be slightly higher. During our busy season (Memorial Day weekend – November 1st), we require 2-night minimum weekend stays.
The posted rates do not include 8% Maine sales tax (unless indicated, as for some of our specials and packages). VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted.
Check-in is after 3:00 p.m. and before 7 p.m. Our door is locked at 9:00 p.m. Of course, once guests have checked-in, they can come and go at any time. If you are not able to check-in by 7 p.m., please contact us to make specific arrangements.
Checkout is prior to 11:00 a.m.
Smoking: For the comfort of all our guests, Brewster House provides smoke-free Freeport, Maine lodging. Those choosing to disregard our smoke-free policy will be subject to cleaning fees and are responsible to compensate Brewster House for future revenue lost when smoke renders a room unacceptable for incoming guests.
Pets: We are not able to accommodate pets of any kind at our bed and breakfast.
Children: Brewster House caters primarily to couples, families with older children and individuals on business or looking for a quiet, and often romantic getaway, without children. For that reason, and because of its delicate decorative and historic features, and for the health, comfort and safety of all our guests, the property is not generally appropriate for children under age 12. Both the Portland Head (#6) and Bass Harbor Suites (#7) are on the 3rd floor and include very low windows, and so are potentially dangerous for young children. Only a limited number of our rooms can suitably accommodate a third (or fourth) person, and charges for additional persons are as stated on the individual room page. Our Freeport, Maine lodging does not include high chairs, portable cribs, roll-away beds or a regular children’s menu.
Travel Agents: We welcome inquiries from travel agents, and we generally do pay a commission to professional travel agents upon receipt of a valid invoice from a genuine travel agency, after check-in and payment by the guest(s). For more information about this, please contact us.
