Brewster in Bloom is the Best

Daffodils at the inn

Every year we look forward to our spring time celebration in Brewster- Brewster in Bloom! It is so special on so many different levels and we LOVE IT!

Springtime is such a special time of the year. I know we are all looking forward to sunshine and warmer weather after the long northern winter of wind, snow and cold temps. Every time I see a spring bulb pop it just makes me smile, and we have planted thousands of bulbs at the Captain Freeman Inn over the years.

This year our town celebration is from May 3rd, 4th & 5th. It is our 33rd annual celebration of Brewster in Bloom. As the time gets closer check out the Chamber Web site as it will be filled with daily events for you to enjoy. Almost everything is free and encompasses what old time Americana is all about!

Our Inn’s Gardens

I love our gardens at the inn, especially our country garden where we grow lavender, herbs and vegetables for our breakfasts. This will be our 4th year of harvest and we are achieving our goals of creating a bountiful garden that is fun to look at and walk through. We love lavender at the inn and last year we were able to add many more lavender plants that surround our fountain.
