“Very welcoming innkeeper with great local knowledge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011 via mobile

Ken was an exceptionally helpful and interesting host for our 2 day visit. After 17 years here he knows all the ins and outs of the restaurant options and best places to see on the Cape. The Inn is quite elegant with beautiful antiques. We would definitely return here when we get back to Cape Cod.

Just got back from a great 3-night trip with my husband, celebrating our 1-year wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived we knew we made a great decision deciding to stay here. Ken, our inn-keeper, was definitely born for this job. One of the most hospitable, kind, and extremely knowledgeable people we've ever met, he made us feel comfortable and at home right away.

He showed us to our room, a third-floor, seemingly attic-type room (but not the dirty, storage attic one would imagine), known as the Garrett Room. Rather, this room was clean, quaint, old-fashioned, and covered wall-to-wall with beautiful old wood, which made us feel like we jumped back in time (in a good way). The bathroom was pretty new looking with that old charm to it, and had double sinks (a luxury for us coming from a small Queens apartment with a tiny sink).

Breakfast each morning was a pleasant surprise of various baked delicacies, prepared fresh by his hired chef. As we ate, we engaged in pleasant conversation with other guests, as well as Ken, about what to do, where to visit, and places to eat during our time on the Cape. Ken was like an endless encyclopedia of knowledge when it comes to all things Cape Cod-related. We were very impressed.

The area where the inn is located is right on the main street of 6A, but nestled off the street so you don't feel like you're on a main road. The inn is surrounded by beautiful old beechwood trees (hence the name), and the area directly around the inn boasts tons of restaurants and cute antique shops, and is in a great location central to the cape. Only an hour from Provincetown and no more than 15-30 minutes to other towns. We definitely took advantage of the central location and covered a decent amount of the Cape during our short stay there.

Overall, this was a great place to stay and I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a beautiful, charming and old-fashioned inn with an extremely personal touch. It would have been nice to meet the golden retrievers others mentioned in this review (we didn't see any), but that definitely doesn't change my opinion of this place at all, which is 5-stars, A+!

Everything is historic about this bread and breakfast--the beech tree, the furniture, the tales from the innkeeper. Granted, we were without power for a few days due to Hurricane Irene, but Ken, the owner, did his best to take care of us--even finding hot coffee at a nearby town that had power, and firing up his stove top to make us a hot breakfast. We enjoyed Hyannis and Provincetown, thanks to his restaurant and sight seeing recommendations. The old inn is beautiful and well maintained. I had never been to Cape Cod before, but from driving around the area, Barnstable seems to be in an excellent spot from which to tour the cape--close to everything, and not on the tacky souvenir, put put golf row. It is on 6A--a highway that is historic in itself. Keep in mind that it IS old--but Ken has done his best to bring it up to our comfort standards. If you like B and B's you can't go wrong here.

Room Tip: The website has a very good description of all the rooms--just choose one that suits you.

Comfortable rooms. Decent food (i.e. Breakfast). Nonetheless being in a B&B we would have expected personnalized services which we did not get. For example, Wifi was not working, beach towels were out of stock (we had to buy ours), old and noisy television, was not as clean as should be, limited information on local activities. Good cookies...

I'm sorry that "Montreal" did not have a good experience at Beechwood Inn and chose to write his review rather than telling me.
Responding to each of Montreal's statements:
1. The couple RAVED about the breakfasts like so many of the tripadvisor reviews, so the rating of "decent"??
2. I gave the couple plenty of personal attention even with a full inn for Labor Day weekend:
a. I described restaurants whose menus are in the parlor, made reservations for them and gave them driving directions
b. They wanted to go to the beach for their one full day on Cape Cod so I described 5 different nearby beaches and gave them driving directions for each
c It was raining on the morning they left. As their transportation was a motorcycle, I held my umbrella over Montreal as he packed the storage units on his motorcycle
3. Montreal had 1 full day to enjoy Cape Cod and chose to go to the beach. There are 21 brochures and schedules for Cape Cod activities in the parlor. Additionally, there are copies of the best guidebook for Cape Cod that is available for guests to take with them
4. The effects of hurricane Irene and the loss of electric power for 2 full days just days before Montreal's arrival had an impact on their comments as follows:
a. WiFi crashed like so many other computers/networks on Cape Cod during the outage. I had to wait in line for technical support to fix the problem. It is now working perfectly again.
b. After 2 days of no electricity the inn had piles of laundry. I prioritized guest room sheets and towels over beach towels. By the time Montreal was ready to go out I had given out all the clean beach towels. I offered to go buy some for them and that was declined. I told them to take the room towels and that was declined.
c The tv cable service was still degraded when electric power was restored. The previous guest in Montreal's room mis-adjusted the volume control. If I had been told, the fix takes less than one minute. Since the digital upgrade to our cable service all of Beechwood Inn's have brilliant picture and excellent sound.
I believe Montreal's review is an anomaly as well as directly caused by the effects of the biggest storm on Cape Cod in 20 years. It should be removed.
Thank you!

Perfect cape cod b&b- charming room with an extremely comfortable bed. Our three course French toast breakfast was delicious! Ken, the inn keeper, was very helpful and suggested some great restaurants and beaches. We got very lucky booking last minute here and will definitely book in advance for several days next time we are at the cape.

My girlfriend and I stayed at this incredibly inviting, warm and friendly inn
for four nights. We found the area spectacularly lush sitting on historic
6A. Tucked away behind enormous hedges resides Ken and Debbie
who welcome you with open arms. It's like coming home to family.
You even have your choice of golden retriever to call your own(The innkeepers
breed and board goldens). The surrounding area is the perfect backdrop to the
relaxation and tranquility one will experience as a guest here. A major
suggestion: Listen to Ken when he offers advice on where to eat. He's connected..
in a good way and he and Debbie are the reason we are coming back next summer.
The Cape is lucky to have them and their business.

This place is truly wonderful and romantic. We visited beechwood during a short getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We were so impressed with the grounds, our room, and our hosts. Debbie, the hostess, made the most amazing breakfasts during our stay. It was nice to have something other than eggs and toast. But a real gourmet meal.

The biggest treat was seeing the gorgeous golden retriever pups, they were so adorable.

I would truly recommend this terrific place.
