Brunswick, Maine – The Inn at Brunswick Station opened it’s doors to guests on Monday June 27, 2011 offering guests contemporary accommodation and classic New England dining in the heart of downtown Brunswick, in Maine’s picturesque Midcoast, announced the inn’s General Manager Rick Martin.

“The final touches are in place and we are looking forward to welcoming visitors to the Inn and Tavern,” said Martin, “We are excited to be a part of the Brunswick’s vibrant community.”

The public is invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony at The Inn at Brunswick Station on Wednesday, July 13, 2011 at 1:00 PM.  The event is jointly coordinated by the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber of Commerce and the Brunswick Downtown Association.  Light refreshments will be served and the hotel staff will be offering tours of the property.

About The Inn at Brunswick Station

Balancing a contemporary yet nostalgic take on comfortable accommodations and classic New England dining, The Inn at Brunswick Station is located adjacent to Bowdoin College on the corner of Maine and Noble Streets, in downtown Brunswick, a quintessential college town. The inn's 52 guest rooms and suites, function space and tavern blend local history with modern comfort to retain a true sense of place for visitors to Maine's beautiful Midcoast.

Charmingly designed by Arrowstreet (Somerville, MA), an award-winning architectural firm, The Inn at Brunswick Station is perfectly situated to become the area's most popular gathering spot located just steps from downtown shopping, outdoor recreation and the diverse offerings of Bowdoin's campus.

The inn incorporates a celebration of Brunswick life and culture over the years, something that's important to developer and Bowdoin alum J. Hilary Rockett, Jr. His attachment to both the town and college is seen in the inn's design features and pre-construction recycling efforts.

Photographs from the Brunswick Historical Society tracking the town's history will cover inn walls. During the demolition phase, Habitat for Humanity/7 Rivers ReStore (Bath, ME) and Building Materials Exchange (Lisbon, ME) benefited from recycling appliances, doors, windows, floors, woodwork and copper. A local stone mason, Cosmic Stone (Topsham, ME), salvaged foundation granite to build benches for nearby public spaces. 
The inn's decor integrates natural wood against a neutral palette with warm gold tones and touches of Bowdoin's black and white school colors. The comfortable guest rooms feature king and queen beds with luxury linens and crisp white bedding. Amenities include flat screen TVs and complimentary wired and wireless Internet access.

The inn's tavern will serve classic New England fare and will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner inside, or al fresco on the generous patio and covered porch. Weddings, meetings and special events for up to 150 guests will be accommodated in a state-of-the-art function space or on the tented patio in warm weather.

Under the umbrella of JHR Development, LLC, Rockett is working to complete Brunswick Station, the mixed-use project that includes the inn. Brunswick Station, located on Station Avenue, includes retail shops, restaurants, and medical facilities, the Bowdoin College Store, and the Brunswick Station stop for Maine Eastern Railroad. This stop will see Amtrak service by 2012 as part of the high-speed rail expansion program. The hope that the project will stimulate regional economic development was underscored by comments made by Vice President Biden in a February 8, 2011 address in Philadelphia. The Vice President noted the positive economic impact extended rail service brings, and referred specifically to the new investment projects underway in Brunswick.

The Inn at Brunswick Station will be managed by Olympia Hotel Management, a hospitality management company based in Portland, Maine dedicated to delivering exceptional guest experiences with attentive but relaxed personalized service.

Located 26 miles from Portland and the International airport, 126 miles from Boston and 10 miles from L.L. Bean and Freeport shopping, The Inn at Brunswick Station is easily reached by car, rail or air.
