New beds, decor and more!

This winter season we decided to reconfigure the two two-bedroom suites on the third floor (Room Six and Room Seven). Well, one thing leads to another, and before you know it, changes are everywhere!

Room FivePreviously, each suite had a large room with king bed, a connecting bath, and a small room with a double bed. However, these rooms are usually occupied either by two couples or by a couple with children - possibly adult children. In order to make this more comfortable for them, we removed the double beds (and found them some very grateful new owners), and replaced them.

In the smaller room of  Room Seven we replaced the double bed with two twin beds, which can be converted to a very comfortable king bed. That gives us the potential for two king beds in that suite.

Meanwhile, in Room Six, we replaced the double bed with a brand new queen bed. We considered twins there, too, but felt the smaller room just didn't permit it.

Since we were on a roll, we upgraded one of the queen beds (Room Two) to a wonderful new pillow-top, and added some antique seating to Room Five with a Deacon's Bench we acquired from a local resident.

We're still working on changes to Room One (which got brand new twin beds - and can still make into a king that is even more comfortable than before!). All the other rooms have new pictures on their individual web pages, accessible from the Rooms page.

We've also done a bit of work to enhance the appearance of things in the dining room - we'll have pictures of those changes and of Room One posted on the web site within the next couple of weeks.

Quilting Sampler Class

Some specials are just too wonderful to lump together with the others, and this one fits the bill!

If you love to quilt, or would love to learn to quilt, join us at Brewster House Bed and Breakfast April 18 and 19 to learn techniques to get the quality you want out of your projects. Single and double occupancy available. More details are available here. Bring your sewing machine and fabric and let's get quilting!

More Packages and Specials

We've made some changes on the web site, and have separated our ongoing packages (the kind we would offer every year, or even all during the year) like our Babymoon, Honeymoon, Birthday and Anniversary packages, and given them their own web page. Next, we re-vamped the Specials page in a couple of ways - to set it up so the newest specials will always be on top, and the older ones will scroll off at the bottom, in time, and also to allow those who use a feed reader (for example, the Google Reader) to subscribe to our Specials feed and be instantly updated with the latest specials.

One of the specials we would like to draw special attention to is the "February is for Romance" special (a $50 restaurant gift certificate with a two night stay). We decided that Valentines Day was entirely too short, so instead of a special just for that day or weekend, we're celebrating the entire month of February. Come join us!
