I found out about the Beaufort Inn from a deal on SniqueAway. It turned out to be a very nice place to stay. Just keep in mind that they are not affiliated with the Southern Graces bistro or the spa located there, they lease out the space, not a big deal, but if you want either of those things you have to deal with different people. Some of the front desk staff were more helpful than others, but the girl who worked the desk in the evenings was very helpful. She's the one who checked us in and explained everything and showed us up to our rooms, and the area. Someone complained that there was not a fridge right in the room, but we had one in the library right across from our room, so it was not an issue for me. We stayed in room #8 which was very nice and spacious. There were never any noise issues. As far as location, we had to drive to some areas further away such as beaches or to explore some of the other islands, but as far as anything located in downtown Beaufort such as shops, restaurants, the waterfront park, and plenty of historic homes, was all within walking distance. The thing that really made the atmosphere of the inn for me was the garden out back, which was lit up at night and was a very peaceful place to have breakfast in the morning or to sit and have a glass of wine, etc at night. The breakfast was great as well, and they switched out certain items each morning to add a little variety, which I enjoyed. The breakfast staff were all very friendly. I was never around for the afternoon snacks so I can't comment on those. The only very minor complaints that I had at all, which are minor indeed, were that there was no water or anything available, which was not a big deal, just make sure to bring your own if you want anything like that, and the fact that there were porches on the 2nd and 3rd floors, but the doors locked behind you and you had to go down the stairs and all the way around to the back or front of the inn to get back inside. I probably would have utilized the porch more if I could've just gone directly back inside, although I suppose it might have been possible to prop the door open too. Overall I had an excellent stay however, and I would stay here again if I were ever back in Beaufort!
