But as you explore downtown Brewster, you’ll only see local shops and restaurants that stay true to the small-town atmosphere.

    If you’re looking for a classic souvenir, make sure to stop in at the Brewster Store. From salt-water taffy to old-fashioned oil lamps, the shop offers gifts galore that embody the culture of our quaint town.

    Did you forget to pack something? Pelo Mar on Main Street is the perfect place to find your new favorite outfit. Marvel at delicate handmade jewelry inspired by the Cape Cod coast, and browse their unique, vintage apparel.

    When you’re ready for a meal of classic Cape Cod fare, Spinnaker‘s is a great option, and it’s just a 5-minute walk from the Candleberry Inn.

    Brewster: The Sea Captain’s Town

    To add to the town’s uniqueness, the rich history of Brewster appeals to both history buffs and sightseers alike. Often called “The Sea Captain’s Town,” the land was a home-base for seamen who used their wealth to build mansions that still stand today. Take the opportunity to tour one of these beautiful structures at the Cobb House Museum; it’s only a 4-minute walk from Candleberry Inn! This exhibit will transport you back in time to the luxurious lifestyle attained by daring sea captains.
