Nicest Beech ever!

The house with its wraparound porch and stately trees offered a pleasant ambiance. Everyone was friendly and accommodating including the toddlers and the family dogs. It was restful and conveniently located minutes away from beaches and dining.


The Best!

Lovely inn. I recommend it highly. I booked the cheapest room they have, and it met my expectations. Can't really declare the room outstanding, because I was looking for value not luxury. Rooms on the Cape aren't cheap at this time of year, but the price was fair. Their prices had increased since I booked the room four months in advance , but Julie charged me the cheaper rate originally quoted. Real classy move. Breakfast and cookies were delicious.


Very nice Inn

Stayed for one night recently and was very pleased. Julie was very helpful and the accommodations were clean and comfortable. I had to leave before breakfast was served but my wife stayed. Unfortunately, she too had to leave after only having coffee and a muffin. Overall, a nice place and we would return.


Lovely house and friendly welcome

A Very Pleasant Inn in Lovely Barnstable

The Innkeepers are new since last year, but very kind and welcoming. The rooms are romantic and beautiful. We arrived late and were assisted with finding dining in town, a great recommendation. Joe is an ex-Marine and has put a lot of work into the Inn, he and Julie love the place and we did too.

Have just returned from the Cape and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beechwood. Very comfortable, clean room, tasty breakfast and such friendly service. Julie goes out of her way to make everyone welcome. Hope to re-visit next spring.
