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.

This a excellent B & B. Dan and Helene are wonderful hosts who are happy to help guests with information about Rockport, restaurants and activities. The rooms are lovely and very nicely appointed and everything is spotlessly clean. The breakfasts that were served each morning were delicious and presented beautifully. I would highly recommend this B & B to anyone wishing to stay in Rockport MA.

This the B & B my wife and I stayed at when we were married in Rockport, and we loved it so much we stayed again. It's absolutely beautiful, and the owners are top shelf. You won't go wrong by staying there, and will want to return!

My wife and I have been guests of Dan and Helene ( Beech Tree Inn) from the day they purchased the Inn. We were guests and now we have become friends . We are restaurant owners and have limited time off. We choose the Beech Tree because they understand the concept of Hospitality. Couple that with a tasteful decore, amazing Rockport ambiance, proximity to Gloucester and engaging conversation keeps up coming back on the precious days we can call our own. Call way ahead and plan your visit as they only have 3 rooms. No matter which one your sty will require q return visit

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!!
