“A perfect experience of Beaufort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

During March 2009 I was taking a Fly-Drive trip from the UK to tour some of the States of America's Deep South.
I mostly take the back roads as I really enjoy travelling and finding "small town America," which for me beats all the city life hands down. I choose to visit Beaufort as I already knew it was a nice small town on a nice part of the coast, with a population of just 3,000.
After driving along the main street (Front St) I quickly found the small Visitor Centre. As soon as I was inside I was asked by two lovely ladies if I would like a portion of cake and a cup of coffee,to which I gladly accepted,immediately impressed by such friendlyness towards strangers.
Having asked about accommodation,I was given details of the Pecan Tree B&B in Queen St,just off of Front St.
I managed to get a good deal,5 nights for the price of 4 as it was so early in the season,a real bargain. The accommodation was picture perfect and could simply not be faulted in every respect,in fact I'd go as far to say the best B&B I have stayed during my many visits to America.
Highly recommended, a truly great experience.

Room Tip: Difficult to choose as all the rooms are really beautiful and comfortable.

Found this inn at the last minute when we rolled into town. The innkeeper was very nice, stayed out of our hair, but when you called on him, he was gracious and accommodating. The house is comfortably furnished and in a great location, close to downtown.

We had a couple of days of free time and decided to head to Beaufort, NC; because we needed rooms Thursday and Friday night but not Saturday night, we knew we would be having difficulty in a peak summer season. Pecan Tree Inn folks were very helpful, accommodating us in the only rooms they had for Thursday and Friday nights and providing a very comfortable stay for us.The inn is a half-block from the waterfront in Beaufort, is across the street from a couple of very good restaurants and provided the perfect place for us to enjoy a "walking" vacation.

Room Tip: Try the second floor room (4) at the back; has a whirlpool tub. Very relaxing.Bed is ultra comfortab...

Room 4 is a large spacious room with a 2 person jetted tub. Thick, luxurious towels and robes are provided. The shower is much too small, only 3ft by 3ft. Hopefully the owners will expand it as there is room to do so. Good breakfasts, buffet style. I recommend including a hot breakfast item. Friendly owner and staff.

Made a last minute reservation for one night at this B&B. Everything was as expected. A good experience in a very convenient location relative to the Beaufort Water Front. The only issue was they did not honor my AAA Discount given I did not request it up front. The Inn was so well run and appointed I would definately stay there a second time irrespective of the discount or no!

While in an excellent location right near Front Street, the inn is in need of the repairs of an old house (roof was still in repair, doorknobs loose). Our bed was very comfortable, with en suite bathroom (though sink needed a more thorough cleaning) with a tiny shower stall. Breakfast was serve-yourself with a melon wedge, coffee cake, storebought bread and English muffins with a toaster, yogurt, and an assortment of mini-cereal boxes. Perhaps that was mentioned but for $135 I expected something like eggs or pancakes. The owner appeared now and then to ask if we needed anything but pretty much no proprietors were visible. Not unfriendly, just.. not around.

Room Tip: I liked that our 2nd floor room was accessible with outside back stairs,not having to come through f...

We arrived on Friday early evening. Our check in was a key left in a basket with a note attached to the front door which was fine. Our room was the Queen Anne Suite....very disappointed. The online photos were much better than the suite. The comforter was not the same as photo. Also, as I was getting out of the tub, the handle came off and tub was cracked..The Inn desperately needs a total renovation and furnishings appear to be "Flea Market" purchases. We went to the
breakfast but was quite simple. We did not go back for breakfast the next am....There are several great restaurants close by within walking distance but no waterview from the Inn. There are 2 bicycles available for use. Inn states sodas & water are available in a frig upstairs...no longer. Not planning to return...

Room Tip: Call and ask lots of questions!!
