With the hustle & bustle of Newport's famed wharves and ocean beach just minutes walk away, you'll be surprised by the quiet calm of our wonderful, Newport, RI lodging residential location. Complimentary off-street parking is a nice luxury and gives you the freedom to take advantage of everything Newport has to offer.
Originally constructed in the late 1880s, the Beech Tree Inn and Cottage is now fully modernized with enlarged rooms and all the amenities - air-conditioning, cable TV, hair dryer, telephone including free local calls, ice machine, free Wi-Fi, and more. Make yourself at home by relaxing with an afternoon cup of tea or glass of sherry...browse through a book from our shelves...or play board games with your children. Families are welcome. And for those who just can't travel without their furry friend, we're pet friendly and have a special room for you. Besides being known for the "biggest breakfast in town" (Frommers'), you'll also find a bowl of candy, nuts, or snack to enjoy.
Come anytime - we're open year round - to enjoy our spacious, comfortable rooms with private baths, lovely gardens, and cozy living room. Meet other guests and make new friends...or hide away for private moments. In the winter, we feature massage in your room and games by the player piano or fireplace. In the summer, we set out beach towels and provide discount tickets to several local attractions.
In addition to quiet getaways, the Beech Tree Inn and Cottage is very versatile & meets lots of needs. Our lovely meeting room is perfect for small gatherings and we're well equipped both inside or outside. We often host reunions, wedding engagements or anniversaries, birthday parties, conferences, graduation parties, breakfast seminars from the Naval War College, business off-sites and meetings of all sorts. Plus we're a great spot for extended stays and offer weekly or monthly rentals in a fully-furnished apartment for folks enjoying a longer vacation. Business travelers are also welcome.
We're committed to protecting the health and safety of our guests, community and earth ...so feel free to join in! You're welcome to use the recycle bin on the back porch for cans, bottles, and plastic. And you can leave other recyclables in your room for our city recycle pick-up. Also, we are a member of "Project Planet" - a lodging industry program aimed at reducing water and detergent useage through linen & towel reuse. Just hang your towels if you want to reuse them...or put them on the floor and we'll replace them. Plus our amenities are certified eco-friendly. They have minimal preservatives, labeling and packing material - the bottles and caps are recyclable - and the non-bleached natural board is biodegradable! Yeah, let's all protect the environment
Whether you're a student at SWOS for 3 months or just in town attending a meeting at the Naval War College, we can accommodate you at the per diem rate (TDY / TAD). 'Cause we know how it feels...Lisa is just back from Afghanistan and the rest of us are retired (Jim retired from the Maine National Guard, Jeff retired as a Combat Controller in the Air Force, and Shelley just retired from the Pentagon). We also honor Nate - see his dedicated page.
And for those who just can't travel without their furry friend, we understand! We're pet friendly and have a special room for you.
