“Nicest place we've ever stayed”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Staying at Beech Tree is just a great experience. It's run by the most welcoming people you'll ever meet (Dan and Helene), the rooms are very comfortable, the breakfast is great and Rockport is a really good base to explore the area from. The town is really nice, you can walk everywhere and there are lots of restaurants and shops to experience. We loved staying here and the hosts make any visit really enjoyable and special - the nicest place we've ever stayed says it all.

I spent five days at the Beech Tree B&B with my wife and two sons in July 2014. We chose this place based on the excellent references it has in Tripadvisor. I have to say that they are absolutely deserved. The owners, Helene and Dan, are a marvelous couple that make you feel at home from the start, they are open and friendly and willing to give you advice about the things to see and to do in Cape Ann and the surrounding area. I also want to underline the delightful breakfasts we had: Helene is an outstanding cook! The rooms were also brilliant: clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Definitely, Helene and Dan are up to the sentence you can read as you enter the Beech Tree B&B: "enter as strangers, leave as friends"

Room Tip: There are only three rooms. In our opinion Marga's room is the most beautiful although it is a b...

This is by far the best Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed out. Dan and Helene go out of their way to treat you well, serve you a delicious breakfast, give you sound advice about the area, and make you feel as if you actually live there. The rooms are always tidy and clean. We have stayed in all three rooms and they are all decorated perfectly with fresh colors. Helene is a great cook with ample servings and delicious treats to boot. Dan is super friendly and thoughtful. The outside deck is just right and the landscaping is impeccable The huge beach tree looms near bye and makes for an excellent conversation piece. If we could, we would be there again tomorrow but I guess we have to work. Dan and Helene thank you for making my wife and I feel at home and at ease in Rockport's favorite place by the sea!! I feel as you are both my Uncle and Aunt. Thank you so much again. Oh and they are located only a 3/4 of a mile off the main drag in downtown Rockport. Now that's a plus as well.:)

Room Tip: Any three will do!!

The Beech Tree is the gold standard that all other B and B's should look up to. They do everything right. Rooms are clean, well appointed and heavenly. Fall into beds made up with yummy cotton sheets, feather pillows and extra comfortable matresses. Wake up to coffee, tea and scrumptious breakfasts. Hang out on the porch or sink into a comfortable couch in the living room and read about the history of Rocport. Walk to town or drive to the beach. You cannot go wrong at the Beech Tree and will want to return as soon as you check out.

Room Tip: There are just three rooms and all are excellent. Bed and breakfast suite is in the back of the ho...

We are not experienced B&B goers, but the location was perfect to BearSkin Neck, the Shalin Liu, and for us the quick ride to Gloucester to meet friends for dinner. We had the middle room, and did not mind jumping across the hall for our bathroom. The other two guests had their suite with a private bath. Helene & Dan were sweet - and Rose did a great job our first day. The breakfasts were lovely, the rooms decorated so nicely, and the porch - a great place for our chats, coffee and relaxing!

My husband & I have been going to this B&B for the past 4 years and it just gets better and better. Its in the perfect location in Rockport -- a short, easy walk to the beautiful Shalin Liu Performance Center, the beach, or shopping on Bearskin Neck. The house and gardens are so well kept with a loving hand by Helene and Dan. The breakfasts are always amazingly original and delicious.

All in all -- a great experience!!
