We recently learned that the Brewster Conservation Trust had purchased the land across the street from our inn, Brewster by the Sea. The land was privately owned for the past 9 years that we have been innkeepers, and we always enjoyed that the land was left natural and only mowed a couple of times a year. When we saw the For Sale sign go up in the spring we were concerned as we did not want a commercial building or home to be our view from the front of our lovely inn.  A few weeks later we saw a new sign go up ……..

At first the sign was a little confusing as the trust is always looking to get donations for future properties. But it is official and the land directly across the street from our inn is now conservation land that will always remain natural and serene. After doing a little research we were impressed at what this volunteer organization has accomplished in just a few years. Brewster Conservation Trust (BCT) was established in 1983 to acquire, preserve and manage open space in Brewster including its beaches, marshes, meadows, woodlands, pond shore, wetlands, aquifer and wildlife habitat. BCT is a non-profit, charitable organization supported by memberships and donations. BCT has completed more than 140 land conservation projects resulting in 742 protected acres by early 2012.

We feel very blessed that the trust saw the foresight to purchase this land which actually connects to our wonderful Drummer Boy Park.

This past week we were equally pleased when many workmen (and woman) from AmeriCorp  arrived to clear the brush from the land. We now have beautiful views of the historic windmill from all of the windows facing the front of our property.

As the workman cleared away the brush it was also a nice surprise to see a handsome old tree that is in the middle of the property.

p.s. the view will be even more special when all of the brush is cleared away

Thank you AmeriCorp and Brewster Conservation Trust for making our view so special at Brewster by the Sea Inn and Spa

A pandemic escape!

Amy and her staff are incredible. The attention to detail is hands down the best. Given all that is going on in this Covid-19 world, we felt safe and comfortable. Check-in was contactless. Our room was perfect. The breakfasts were wonderful and loved the cookies in the afternoon. The icing on the cake was Sweet Pea, Amy's dog, an absolute love! Amy, thank you, we'll be back!

Outstanding getaway!

This was our second time staying at this lovely inn. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the grounds are both spacious and tranquil. There is even a pool which is an excellent way to cool off after a day exploring the nearby trails or bike path. The breakfasts are creative and delicious and very filling. Amy, the owner and innkeeper is wonderful. She takes great care of the property and is so welcoming to her guests. She is very gracious in helping with advice on what to do in the area and making dinner reservations. We were among her first guests as Massachusetts began to "open up" during the Covid 19 crisis. She took great care to assure that everything was done to make her guests safe and comfortable. We look forward to returning.

A very enjoyable and relaxing stay

We had another wonderful experience here at Brewster By The Sea.  Lovely walks on the Flats and enjoying the local food!  In spite of COVID, Amy & staff helped us feel SAFE and at home!
