Romantic honeymoon retreat

5 on August 31, 2018

This place is perfect for a peaceful and romantic getaway. The staff are very attentive to guests needs and go the extra mile to take care of their guests. We really enjoyed wine thirty with the views on the front porch. Also, the view from the Savanah suite was gorgeous! Perfect place to enjoy our honeymoon. Would highly recommend it and will definitely be visiting again in the future!

Innkeeper Response
Yes, our perch on the side of a hill surrounded by forest makes for a peaceful and romantic location. We are honored you selected Beechwood Inn for your honeymoon and glad you enjoyed our attentive hospitality. We look forward to your next visit.

Very pleasant stay

4.6 on August 26, 2018

Hosts were very gracious and welcoming. Breakfasts and wine thirty bites were delicious. Most enjoyable stay but need to get that pothole on the driveway repaired.

Innkeeper Response
Glad you enjoyed breakfast and wine-thirty. Wish you had mentioned the pothole in the rode while you were here. It was scheduled to be repaired early this spring before the inn got busy, but the batch plant could not open because of an equipment breakdown. It was fully a two month delay. Now we are in our busy season so unless we have a couple days without guests we may have to wait until November when things quiet down to get it repaired. We trust that by your next visit you will have a smooth ride up our hill.

Wonderful stay

5 on August 16, 2018

Beechwood Inn was such a fantastic choice for a weekend getaway. The room accommodation was filled with bright farmhouse charm. Loved the newly updated bathroom. The view from the front porch was perfect during "wine-thirty," and also at night while watching the fireflies in the garden below. The breakfast was delicious and the service was top-notch. I would highly recommend Beechwood Inn.

Innkeeper Response
We are always pleased when our guests enjoy our beautiful property. Our bathroom modernizations have been well received, glad you noticed. Yes, our front porch we have dubbed as "Our Outdoor Livingroom." It offers a day-time view of Black Rock Mountain and an evening view of flickering fireflies. Thanks also for enjoying our hospitality and foods.

Signature Dish

Crab Cake Avocado Relish, Poached Egg, Sauce Maltaise
Sauce Maltaise is a variation on the classic Hollandaise. It is made with orange juice rather than lemon. Here we have made breakfast by putting it on a crab cake and poached egg, but it is equally at home on fresh seasonal asparagus.
