Why would you stay anywhere else?

5 on March 29, 2018

We are repeat Beechwood Inn visitors for a reason...there’s just no place better for any kind of get-a-way, retreat, family reunion, or anniversary celebration. If you’re used to “high end” accommodations, meals, and service, you get exactly that and more.

Innkeeper Response
Your thoughts, especially knowing you are repeat guests, is exactly the reason we work so hard to deliver the high end experience Beechwood Inn is known for. We look forward to your next visit.

We had a lovely weekend getaway. The innkeepers are welcoming and very knowledgeable of the area. They are happy to share the history of the inn and places of interest in the area. Our room was cozy and comfortable. Their gourmet farm to table meals are delicious. We hope to spend some time there again.

Wonderful stay!

4.6 on December 04, 2017

We had the Friday night special tasting dinner which was amazing. Our host told us where all the foods per course had been sourced and how they were prepared. Not only did we learn a lot, the food was delicious! David, Beechwood's owner and chef, also gave us a personal tour of his wine cellar and recommended some great options that we thoroughly enjoyed. The rooms and the inn itself were homey and cozy. Will come back again.

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.
