Just as Captain Freeman intended in the 1860's our guests can now rock the hot summer days away in beautiful rocking chairs on the front porch. Reading the newspaper in the morning with your first cup of coffee or an afternoon repast with lemonade, or an evening glass of wine helps make one realize what the good life was and continues to be.
The Captain Freeman is just as elegant inside as the outside porch shown here. Beautiful craftsmenship is evident in the hand pulled plaster moldings and medallions on the first floor with the beautiful chevron patterened hardword floors. The inn boasts a formal winter dining room, a grand parlor / front room, a guest pantry area and a tea room on the first floor.
The kitchen is a commercial graded kitchen large enough to host up to 14 people for cape cod culinary cooking schools . The rooms have been renovated to modern comfort standards with air conditioning, tiled baths and fireplaces for that perfect winter getaway.
Brewster was most famous for its wealth of Sea Captains, both in number and in prosperity, and was incorporated in 1803, separating from Harwich on the south. The story is related that too large a tax burden was being place on them and they separated from the less well to do southerners ;) A book compiled in 1903 on the Brewster Sea Captains can be read at this link. and do a search for "William Freeman" to read fascinating tidbits about the life of a Sea Captain.
The thrid floor hosts two very deluxe and quiet rooms. In the 1860's they would have been the servants quarters, and you can be assured that they did not get to enjoy 2 person whirlpool jacuzzis or the guest pantry outside the room as shown here.
