“Southern Charm at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

A wonderful place to kick back and unwind. We stayed in the Caretaker's Cottage and the price is definitely reasonable. Free breakfast and walking distance from all the major sights. As we are traveling with my 13 year old autistic son accommodations are very important. Everyone here has been amazing!

Thank you for your kind review. The Caretaker’s Cottage is one of our larger accommodations with King and Queen sleeping rooms, living room, dining room, and kitchen making it perfect for a family or friends travelling together. The Beaufort Inn has the luxury of being just blocks from many dining and shopping options. I am thrilled you enjoyed your time with us. Please come back and visit again.

The Beaufort Inn has all kinds of southern charm. We arrived early and was able to drop off our car so we could walk around and explore Beaufort. Our room was large with a lovely porch. The breakfast buffet was really good with made-to-order omlets, french toast, grits, fresh fruit, muffins, bacon and sausage. Our only slight dissatisfaction was that our king size bed was actually two beds put together. The problem was that you could feel the separation in the middle, We also could have used a suitcase carrier in the room. We would certainly recommend this inn and would come back again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I greatly appreciate it and wanted you to know that we have improved the room where you stayed by making it an Historic Queen accommodation. I hope that you will return and experience one of our Luxury King rooms – I promise no separation in the middle! Our daily chef prepared breakfast is a fantastic way to get your southern vacation started. There is wonderful shopping and dining just a block from The Beaufort Inn and it sounds like you had some time to enjoy it. We are delighted you enjoyed your time in Beaufort.

My wife and I stayed at the Beaufort Inn from July 8th - 10th. We had a great time in Beaufort, and the Beaufort Inn was the perfect place to stay. The Inn owns the entire block, and there are various lodgings on the grounds. My wife and I stayed in room 15 and had a private parking space. The location downtown proved to be ideal for walking anywhere in town. All the Inn and Southern Graces staff were friendly and professional - I would also like to say that Ashley (front desk of the inn) was the best staff member of any hotel I've stayed at. She went above and beyond to insure my wife and I had a wonderful vacation. If you are wondering where to stay while in Beaufort, you should stay here!

Room Tip: Room 15 was beautiful, quiet, private, and had direct street access.

We stayed at the Beaufort Inn for two nights and found the room (room 14) to be gorgeous. It was like staying in a beautiful manner house. It had the biggest bathroom ever. I even texted pictures of it to our friends!!! The staff was fabulous and friendly. The best part was it is dog friendly. Its not too often that you get to stay somewhere so unique and fabulous while traveling with your dogs. I recommend it to anyone considering a stay in Beaufort, which by the way was pretty impressive itself!!!

We really liked the Beaufort Inn. The location was excellent for site seeing and browsing around the town. The building is old but very well maintained and the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were decorated nice. We stayed in the Lodge which is about a block away from the main building and could accommodate 6 of us with lots of room to spare. We were somewhat awestruck by how large the room was in fact. It is also looks directly down onto the main street of town with lots of art galleries and fun shops right outside. The thing we all liked best was the breakfast. We all agreed that we had never had a better breakfast in any hotel ever - anywhere, it was the best ever! The people that we met that worked there were all very friendly and nice. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a group of people, the Lodge (room 40) is great. It has 3 individual bedr...

We stayed here based on Tripadvisor reviews and wanting to stay at a B&B. The inn is beautiful and well maintained. There are a few issues, but I am picky. We stayed in the Garden Cottages room 25 and loved it there. Breakfast was delicious and the chef and other staff so nice and friendly. The snacks at 5:00 were scones and jam but those were just okay. I think that could be better. The location to the waterfront, shopping and wonderful restaurants was convenient. One word of warning: The restaurant associated with the inn, Southern Graces, was closed July 1-4. This was disappointing. It seemed that on July 4 many restaurants and shops were closed as well. It seems that they cancelled the parade this year, which is a shame. We will return when in the area and look forward to future visits to the gorgeous property.
