Located just a hop, skip, and a jump from downtown Brunswick, Maine, the One Sixty Five is a small inn with a lot of charm. I have lived in Brunswick for over a decade so I am familiar with many of the local businesses here and One Sixty Five is no exception. I have eaten breakfast here on a number of occasions and I can honestly say it is always delicious! They also have equally delicious coffee! Further, whenever I have family or friends visiting Brunswick, One Sixty Five is one of the first places I recommend people stay at. And finally, Pub165 is one of my favorite (secret, yet not-so-secret) spots in Brunswick to get a drink and light fare. I have spent time here with my wife as it's an ideal location for a game of cribbage and a glass of wine, especially in the winter when the fire is going. It's so gosh darn comfortable and inviting there!
I arranged a more formal visit of One Sixty Five this month, and the owner, Eileen, was a joy to chat with. I have met her a few times before in passing at the Inn when I have been there for brunch or having a drink in the Pub. During each encounter I've had with her, I have always found her to be warm and genuine. She definitely embodies that kind, New England hospitality which makes everyone feel welcome. She took some time out of her busy schedule to sit down with me and chat about One Sixty Five and the journey of running her beautiful inn. I was equally impressed by how friendly all of the staff were as I came in.
I wanted to visit One Sixty Five through a different lens - this time as a photographer, specifically an event and wedding photographer, and also as a fellow woman-owned small business owner. I learned that One Sixty Five is able to host small weddings and gatherings (i.e. baby shower, retirement, etc.). Especially during the winter season and mid-day timeframes, the venue is a perfect spot for a couple who is looking for an intimate, cozy, and friendly celebration. More information about weddings and events can be found on their website which you can find here: https://www.onesixtyfivemaine.com/ I took a few quick photos and put together a video that you can see below.
