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.

My husband and I went to The Brewster Inn for dinner on New Years Eve and loved it! We have driven by the place many times and have always wanted to try it out! It was so beautifully decorated for the holidays. We were seated right next to a lovely fireplace that gave it a very cozy feel. They had...

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. We ordered drinks and I ordered the escargot as an appetizer along with our entrees salmon for me and filet for my wife. Our bread was...

$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...

Stopped by Cazenovia for one night just because my GPS was acting up! This historical inn was very nice and charming but of course it is an old house and lacks some of the features I like and need. For example, I carry some medication that need refrigeration (no fridge in the room) and I had to take a bucket...

The food at the inn was quite good and our server skilled, personable and attentive. The ambiance left a lot to be desired. We arrived without reservations on a Monday evening and were seated near the bar, even though it appeared there were other options available. A bar patron arrived shortly after us and asked to have the tv tuned...

Traveling solo, I originally booked one of the cheaper rooms in the carriage house but I got an immediate upgrade without even asking to a very large room with deck in the main house that overlooked the lake for the same price. The room was like going back in time with wood panel walls and high ceilings. It was amazing!....
