……is the perfect celebration to welcome in spring!  I think we are all tired of winter, and it is a welcome sight to see the spring bulbs starting to bloom. We have been innkeepers in Brewster for over 11 years now and always smile when we hear locals talking about the timing when the daffodils will bloom each year. We are all hopeful that it coincides with our wonderful town celebration, Brewster in Bloom. It is a long time tradition for many of the business and homes that flank our Old Historic Highway to plant thousands of daffodil bulbs for all to enjoy as they drive through our picturesque town of Brewster.
