“Interesting house”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I need to preface this review by saying the owner has some serious health problems which may have affected the quality of the inn. The house itself is amazing, a rabbit warren of rooms entering into rooms, staircases everywhere and original architectural details that are incredible! We stayed in the Lilac room (so named because of the bathroom). The room was huge, as was the bathroom. There is a separate room for the shower. Although the bed was king size, it wasn't the most comfortable. The mattress was thin, so the fitted sheet wouldn't stay put. I found myself tangled a few times. My husband and I live in an old house that we restored, so we are used to steep staircases, and believe me, these staircases are steep! Not recommended for the elderly. Although Ken (who is very friendly and personable) was there to greet us, he could not be there to greet the other guests who arrived much later. This resulted in them looking for their rooms, trying to get through our doors, and generally making noise late at night. (I hope it was the late arriving guests. Afterall, it is an old house!). The breakfast was excellent!

Room Tip: I can only stress that if one has trouble with stairs, specify a first floor room.

Beechwood is situated on a very picturresque, pretty landscaped property. Ken ,the innkeeper was very pleasant and helpful. Food was very good. The only faults we could find with this property was that yes, it was old and could use some improvements. (small cracks in the walls, wood floors uneven when you walk across them, and some parts of the room the planks would shift completely, dusting was needed in areas). Overall was nice.

The Beechwood Inn was the perfect choice for our six night stay on Cape Cod - the mid Cape location made exploring simple - nothing is more than a one hour drive from the inn!; our room (The Cottage Room) was stunning - lovely antique furniture and gorgeous stained glass windows!; Ken (the innkeeper) is friendly, welcoming, and full of excellent recommendations!; the grounds of the inn were lovely, even in early Spring, and the inn itself is beautifully appointed and lovingly maintained.

We were treated to a three course breakfast each morning - decadent and filling! This will be a special treat for those who favour sweets - many of the dishes feature chocolate! In addition, there is always coffee available in the dining room and fresh cookies in the parlour.

In response to a prior post referencing lack of attention - we had a wee problem with the sink drain clogging during our stay. Ken immediately treated the clog, and offered us the use of the bathroom in a vacant room across the hall. Within 24 hours, the problem was solved, with very minimal inconvenience. Our take was it was just one of the quirks of staying at an historic property, and we appreciated the efforts made for our comfort.

Convenient location, stunning inn and grounds, charming host - perfect combination for a thoroughly enjoyable stay!!

First off booking this vacation was ridiculously easy and affordable! We got there and we were instantly greeted by Ken, the inn keeper. He was incredible friendly and helpful with telling us a bit about the area and offering to help us make dinner reservations. We were there for 3 nights and each was just as amazing as the last. The lilac room was so comfy and cozy and the bathroom was gigantic! i was in heaven!. The bed was insanely comfy and felt like sleeping on clouds. Breakfast was to die for. i unfortunately slept through day twos breakfast but my boyfriend made is sound delicious. This was by far the best location for a B&b as well, close to a small village with excellent coffee and close enough to other shopping and dining experiences. Best vacation and by far best B&B ever!!!

Room Tip: the lilac room is its own floor with a doorway into the breakfast room. its huge and airy and the fi...

My wife and I received a weekend stay at the Beechwood Inn as a wedding gift from her friends at work. What a great gift!! The Inn is charming and very comfortable. The antiques sprinkled around the premises are beautiful and, thanks to Ken, the Innkeeper, many have an interesting story. Ken, as well as being very friendly and down-to-earth, is a wealth of knowledge about the Cape and really helped us plan our weekend visit, maximizing our time there. I highly recommend staying at the Beechwood Inn (we stayed in the Lilac Room) and, hopefully, will be back soon! Thanks, Ken!!! Kim and Steve

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful but, if you like a big claw and ball tub, choose the Lilac Room!

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...
