“outstanding Inn and host!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

It was a quiet and restful Inn. Very comfortable. Our host, Ken, gave us great recommendations as to where we can go biking, great places to eat, and what to see at Cape Cod. He knows a lot about the history of his Inn and surrounding area. For breakfast we had homemade cakes, muffins, fresh fruit, Portuguese french toast, a wonderful egg dish. There were cookies and lemonade, coffee and tea midday to have while relaxing on the victorian porch next to the 150 year old beech trees. Will come back!

Room Tip: East Lake room accommodated our two adult children and my husband and I. Very nice bathroom; comfort...

My husband and I stayed at Beechwood for 3 nights during a recent June heatwave and had the most wonderful stay. The property is beautiful, including the gardens and the deck where we relaxed over bottles of wine most nights. A short walk into town. Ken was an extremely attentive and hospitable host. Would highly receommend a stay.

The innkeeper Ken was very kind and did everything he could to make our stay at the bed and breakfast pleasant. My husband and I stayed at Beechwood Inn for 2 days. It is within walking distance to the village of Barnstable. Barnstable has many little shops, resteraunts, and a beach. There are a few things that could be improved at the inn. I was reading some of the other reviews and do agree that the breakfasts served were far too sweet, a balance of sweet and savory would be nice. The bed was way too firm for my liking. The inn was clean, however, the housekeeper needs to do some detail work, example-the windows needed cleaned, the tops of the furniture were dusted but I noticed that the remaing parts were dusty. The yard was nice except for two areas: one was a garden with weeds, the other abandon dog houses. If these things were taken care of this inn would get an excelent rating from me.

Room Tip: We took a tour of the house. The attic room appears quiet and it is very cute with angled ceiling...

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.
