Old Sea Pines Inn
Brewster on Cape Cod

History & Setting

The Old Sea Pines Inn was once the center of the 300 acre estate known as the Sea Pines School of Charm and Personality for Young Women. Founded in 1907 by the Rev. Thomas Bickford, it continued as a school until the 1970's. During most of its history, the school was directed and inspired by Faith Bickford. Her strong, dedicated spirit is well remembered by all who have experienced her. Since purchasing the property in 1977, we have received many former staff and students (the oldest from the class of 1917!). They have sat and shared their memories with us, and have helped us recreate a time, an atmosphere and style that we have tried to hold here for you to share. It was an idealistic, uncomplicated and unhurried time that allowed the school's residents to fully appreciate and enjoy the beauty of the Cape. It is our hope that the Inn we have established will allow you the same pleasures during your visit.

On rare chilly summer evenings sitting comfortably near the log burning fire place, in the period furniture, is like stepping back in time complete with photo albums of the Inn as it was in the twenties.

If you like crowds of people and summer time commercialism, Brewster is definitely not for you. If on the other hand you want to relax in an attractive, laid-back, classic, down east community of well established, exceedingly well cared for old yankee homes - Old Sea Pines Inn is just right.

Breakfast Line      SunPorch

Downstairs the Inn's kitchen is marvelous by any standards
and breakfast is served every morning from 8 to 9:30 AM.

Side Deck 1   Side Deck 2

Just next to the spacious living room is the large, completely restored formal dining room which opens to a spacious outdoor dining deck, surrounded by trees, overlooking the Inn's lawns and gardens.

On summer mornings a delicious, full breakfast, courtesy of the Inn, in this cheerful ambiance is truly a delightful and satisfying experience. The immaculately kept Inn quite graciously manages to combine the best of yesterday and today. It seems to have a foot happily planted in each world.

Today while maintaining its original turn of the century style and charm it has become one of the finest Inns on the New England sea coast.
