Decking the Halls
This weekend (December 5-7) is Freeport's 15th Annual Sparkle Weekend, with parade, Santa Claus, sales and more! We had our first small snowfall about two days ago (it's all gone already), and we've been decorating the house and getting ready for the annual festivities.
The Tuba Concert is always a big hit, as is Radio Hour - an "old time" radio drama put on by Freeport Community Players, L.L. Bean's Northern Lights celebration, and other activities.
If you miss it this year, plan to be here next year!
Oh, by the way, some of you have mentioned being interested in coming around New Years. If you look on our online availability calendar, you'll see that we show no vacancy through December 30. We'll be visiting Ruth's parents, but return home on the 30th, so if you're interested in coming up on the 30th, but can't book online, let us know, and I'm sure we can arrange for you to stay here (we just may be a bit late arriving, ourselves).
The holiday gift-giving time always brings requests for Brewster House Gift Certificates. What a great way to introduce someone to the world of Bed and Breakfasts! Gift Certificates
are available in any amount from $50 up. Purchase them
online, or call us at 1-800-865-0822 (in the US; 1-207-865-4121 elsewhere) and we'll be glad to assist you.
What was I thinking?
For Ruth's birthday this year I gave her cooking lessons! It wasn't as bad an idea as it sounded! In fact, it was a huge success!

Thinking of Spring
We have set up the specials for Spring/Summer 2009. Yes, it is a bit early, but we've already had inquiries about them, and even one booking, so we're not the only ones beginning to prepare for the warmer weather!
Our two most popular specials are being repeated, one is enhanced, and there is one new addition. The Sail into the Sunset package was very popular last summer - two nights at Brewster House plus a sunset sail on an antique schooner from Portland Schooner Co., as well as a $100 L.L. Bean gift certificate and a $50 restaurant gift card, and other goodies.
Last year's most popular package, Fall Foliage Surf & Turf, is also back again! Two nights at Brewster House, an antique schooner cruise, a self-drive tour of foliage areas (can be as short as 2 hours or as long as all day), a $50 gasoline card, $100 L.L. Bean shopping spree, and a $50 restaurant gift card, plus other goodies.
We've enhanced the Schooners & Lighthouses package for 2009. In addition to two nights at Brewster House, the package includes a detailed self-drive lighthouse tour, and souvenir book on Maine lighthouses, antique schooner cruise, a $50 gas card and assorted other goodies.
Our newest special is the Lighthouse Tour, including a detailed self-drive lighthouse tour, souvenir lighthouse guidebook, $50 gas card, $50 restaurant gift card, and, of course, two nights at Brewster House.
