The Brunswick Inn was a highlight of our New England trip. It gave me a great first impression of bed and breakfasts. The innkeepers were so hospitable; they had such wonderful recommendations for activities and food. We've already decided to stay there again.

If you are planning a trip to Maine, make sure you make The Brunswick in part of your stay. You won't regret it!

I travel often during the year, and no place do I look more forward to visiting than The Brunswick Inn.  Eileen and her family are adorable, and they treat me like a cherished member of their family.  I look forward to making my way in the early morning hours to that hot pot of coffee, pouring it into a gleaming mug, and relaxing in the quiet dawn before I go visit my Bowdoin College student daughter.  We've hosted college kids for a cozy fall dinner in the dining room, lit by a blazing fire: Eileen's chili and cornbread, followed by enormous cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  I couldn't design a nicer place to stay.  It's heaven.

As Bowdoin parents, we stayed in several places in the area. Then we found The Brunswick Inn. This is the best, for a lot of reasons. Not only is it the nicest place around, but it has the best location - closest to the college. It's also walking distance to every restaurant in town. We have stayed in several different rooms and each is a little different--not your cookie-cutter hotel rooms like the ones off the highway! (We stayed in those, before we found this gem.) Eileen is the most welcoming innkeeper and makes you feel right at home. She will try to help you with just about anything and is especially good at restaurant recommendations. Staying at The Brunswick Inn has become an important part of every Bowdoin visit for us. Don't even get me started about breakfast...

The Brunswick Inn is the perfect home away from home. The innkeepers and staff are warm and welcoming. Once our son graduates from Bowdoin College (which is within walking distance) we will not have the need to stay in Brunswick, but probably will stop at the inn just to say hello. The rooms are well appointed, grounds have ample parking and the breakfast is full and varied. They are right on the commons which has ice skating in the winter and a farmers market the rest of the year. We have never stayed anywhere else and do not plan to try the adventure. We highly recommend it.

Friends and family gathered at The Brunswick Inn for a wedding. Inn owner Eileen and her extraordinary assistant, Barbara, and staff made sure that our every need was met, both for the festivities associated with the wedding and our comfort in the exceptional rooms of the main house and cottages. The garden behind the inn was perfect for the ceremony. The parlor, wine bar and breakfast areas of the inn were transformed into dining, dancing and socializing areas for the 50 guests. The following morning, it was fabulous breakfast as usual with attention to every guest. Brunswick is a perfect New England town, it was our first visit. Walk to the river, the swinging bridge, restaurants, antique shops, flea market in converted town mill buildings, or just kick back and enjoy the front porch at the inn. The Brunswick Inn is across the street from the Village Green, and walking distance from Bowdoin College. We found Maine hospitality at its best here.

We have actually stayed at the inn about 4 times in the last 6 months. The new inn keepers are warm and hospitable, yet they understand the guest's need for privacy. Each time we visited we stayed in a different room. Each room was very comfortable and very attractive. Very quiet. We were cool in the heat of July, and we were snug and warm this last November.

Brunswick has a choice of many great restaurants, but we did like to stay at the Inn for a wonderful breakfast. Our kids with hearty appetites had plenty and the chef even accommodated me with wheat-free offerings.

Another nice touch was having a glass of wine in front of the roaring fireplace while great music played in the background!

We have recommended this inn to our friends and family. Now we thought we'd recommend it to everyone!

As a Bowdoin parent, I stayed in several area hotels and inns before finding The Brunswick Inn. It is the best of all worlds—extremely convenient, really friendly, and very nice. It is part of every visit now. Our Bowdoin student sometimes stays with us to get a break from dorm life but ALWAYS joins us for the great breakfast.

Our wedding weekend at The Brunswick Inn was magical. The Inn provided just the right ambience; elegance without pretension, a charming and warm setting for such a special event. Eileen and her staff provided superb service, as if they were serving their own families. Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever attended!
