Beech Tree Inn and Cottage
Ranked #3 of 96 Newport B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 March 2012

From the outside, the house that this B&B is located in is very cute. There is a circular drive, with ample parking in the back, and you can reach your room from either the front or the back, which is convenient. The location is not great, though. It is not located in the cute downtown that you think of when you think of Newport. It's a little off the beaten pack, a little less than a mile away from the restaurant area of this section of Newport. There were some questionable characters that I spotted walking around.
When we arrived, there was no one around to check us in, but the staff did leave a little note with our room key and instructions, which was very nice and helpful.
The room itself was fine. Small but with a king bed, which was great, and comfortable. There was a gas-operated fireplace in the room, and the windows opened, both which were also very enjoyable. The bathroom was a decent size with a HUGE jacuzzi tub in it. There was not a great attention to detail, however. The towels throughout the bathroom did not match, and there was only one bar (very small) of soap. Also, the staff did not service the room while we were there - because we must have been sleeping when they came to make up the room, they left a plastic bag of towels outside of the room.
The breakfast is very decent. Not HUGE, which I feel they tout, but adequate. Overall it is an acceptable place, but I do not think I would stay here again. Also, the walls are very thin, and I could hear a lot of the conversation from the people out in the hall and even in their room that was adjacent to ours.

We highly recommend this inn as a place to truly relax. The rooms are beautiful, and a warm, friendly atmosphere welcomes you from the very start. The breakfasts are delicious, and plentiful, with every need met, as far as we are concerned. There is also the ability to have a cup of tea after hours, and to sit and enjoy the common room at your leisure. The innkeepers are friendly and attend to your needs, as well as being interested in you as people. We are looking forward to returning again (we had been there before, and enjoyed it.)
They have a great little dog that you are sure to fall in love with, too.

Room Tip: Remember to tell the innkeeper just what type of room you need, i.e. if you'd like first floor...

The only regret I have about our stay at The Beech Tree Inn was that it was only a one night visit. The room was clean & the bed was very comfortable. The girl who checked us in gave us a map of Newport & pointed out local attractions & restaurants. Our host was an extremely kind gentleman who also took our breakfast order in the morning. Now for the dish on breakfast: there was fruit & yogurt, toast & cereal, coffee, tea, & juice. And then we were allowed to choose an entree as well that the hosts of the B & B cooked on the spot in their kitchen! My husband had a ham, mushroom, & cheese omelet with home fries, & I got three delicious blueberry pancakes with bacon. If we are ever back in Newport we will definitely be back to stay at The Beech Tree Inn!

We went to Newport for a couple's getaway weekend. The Beech Tree Inn was a great place to stay. It was not too far from all the restaurants and shops. The room was sunny and bright, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was absolutely delicious. The innkeeper was very friendly and helpful with advice on local attractions.

Clearly the best breakfast of all B&B's! Very good rooms, lots of space. Welcoming staff. Not far from Thames and Newport's central tourist district. Very reasonably priced. Recommend highly; will do again.

Room Tip: Rm 202 most recently renovated.

As a Veterinarian, I can always leave my dogs at the office. However, with this trip, we elected to travel with our two dogs-one 18 lb hyper terrier and one mellow 60 lb dobie x. Jim and his son-in-law, Jeff were so accommodating to both us and our canine friends. The Inn was beautiful. The location was perfect. I was able to walk the dogs to the cliff walk 0.8 miles away and then continue with the cliff walk. My husband and I were able to walk into town during the day and enjoy walking to the wonderful restaurants on South Broadway while being able to leave the dogs in the comfortable room. (They even gave us a blanket to put over the bed for the dogs if they didn't stay on their own beds and jumped on ours!) We were able to walk to the Firehouse Theatre for improv on Friday night, which we thoroughly enjoy also.

Room Tip: I loved having the front room on the first floor so it was easy to walk the dogs outside, but someon...

You say you need a weekend away. You say the spark has gone out of your romance. Have I got a place for you. We decided to take a trip to Newport, RI, see the mansions, have some great seafood, a little romance too. We looked up B&Bs, and The Beech Tree Inn fit the bill. It was close to everything, had a jacuzzi tub, and boasted of the biggest breakfast of any Inn in Newport. We really didn't know what to expect and we were very pleasantly surprised. We pulled up to a beautiful house, and we were welcomed in by Jim, the Innkeeper, a very pleasant, amiable fellow, who instructed us to park in the back. The Inn is beautifully decorated, and quite modern with WIFI, flat screen television in the room, and large rooms with Kingsize beds, and fireplaces. Just what we needed! The Inn is walking distance, a good walk, but still walking distance from the wharf, and many good restaurants. We had a great night's sleep in a comfortable bed. The breakfast was just as advertised, just about anything someone could want. It was delicious. We will definitely be back for more sightseeing, whether or not we need a "romantic interlude".

Room Tip: If you have a pet, there is only one pet friendly room. We were in room 205, but any room in the I...
