SIMPLE ELEGANCE describes our 1850s Greek revival home, thoughtfully restored to provide year round accommodations and an exceptional bed and breakfast experience. We are conveniently located in the quintessential New England seaside village of Rockport, surrounded by spectacular ocean views. We are a few minutes walk to Sandy Bay harbor, Front Beach, art galleries, restaurants, unique shops, train station and the Shalin Liu Performance center, which features an eclectic schedule of jazz, pop, classical and world music. Inviting public spaces are designed for lively conversation or quiet moments in front of the fireplace or in the well lighted reading room. Outdoors, the perennial gardens, fountains, natural stone patio and rocking chair porch are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the seacoast weather under the shade of the 100 year old beech tree. Delectable breakfasts are served in our sun-filled dining room or outside on the patio or porch.

My husband and I stayed overnight at this peaceful and most comfortable B&B in order to attend a concert at the Shalin-Liu hall. Accomodations were fantastic, warm, comfy bed and linens, spacious suite, deep tub and a most delicious breakfast. The hosts could not have been nicer!!

We had just one night to get away and couldn't have asked for a better stay. It was a lovely, quiet, peaceful hideout for us when downtown Rockport was crowded. And when the crowds died down, we enjoyed the very quick walk to the waterfront. We hope to come again and stay longer!

The Beech Tree is a lovely home, and Dan and Helene are very welcoming. Only three rooms so it is an intimate setting. Breakfast was well done, but I am not a fan of K-cup coffee, which was the backup for regular and only source for decaf. The Inn is a few blocks from the center of Rockport but on a main street. Very convenient and a great community to walk in. The gardens, the porch, the living room and sitting area are all well appointed and so peaceful. Hope to get back there again. Highly recommended.
