This was the second time we have stayed at Langdon House and it was great. Lizzet was an excellent hostess and served a super breakfast. The location in Beaufort is easily accessible to the waterfront with numerous shops and historic sites including a Revolutionary Cemetery across the street. The Inn was originally built in 1764 and is fully restored and grounds are beautifully landscaped. We have plans to go back in October this year for another super experience.

We spent our 47th wedding anniversary at this wonderful B&B in Beaufort, NC. We were welcomed as we arrived and time was taken to introduce us to the home and our room. Our room was quaint and cozy. We had everything we needed and more. Breakfast was delicious all 3 mornings. The location of the home was perfect. We could walk to all the shops and restaurants. The host went over and beyond to make us comfortable and she made sure we had all we needed. We will definitely return to the Langdon Inn any time we visit Beaufort.

We had a wonderful stay at the Langton B&B. It was our 1st time staying there but it won't be the last time. The owner, Lizzett, was helpful and courteous. She showed us around the home and shared information about restaurant options, etc. We were in the Constantino room on the 1st floor. It was filled with lovely antiques and the bed was extra comfy. The next morning, we were served a very delicious breakfast of coffee, fruit, eggs and pastry. We definitely recommend this B&B!

DO NOT stay here if you have kids of any age (website says no kids under 12.) We were watching a movie on my phone since THERE ARE NO TV’S IN ANY ROOMS, and the owner reprimanded us for being too loud. Moreover, there is NO LOCK on door when you leave, which means anyone can walk into your room while you are not there. There is a chain lock on the door for when you are physically in the room, but that is it. There was also a giant hole in our wall that was covered by a spray-painted paper plate.

As if that was not a deal breaker enough, we were standing out on the porch, and one of us got stung by a Yellowjacket after accidentally getting too close to their hive which we later discovered was under the rug by the door, in the wooden floorboards. The owner came out and sprayed so that we could safely go back inside. However, the next day the wasps were still there and we were told that there was “nothing they can do about it.”

The final nail in the coffin was the breakfast. We experienced 2 “Hallmark Breakfasts” and 1 “Continental”. The Hallmark included fruit, waffle, eggs and 2 sausages. While this was quite good, it was not equal to an additional $60 for 2 people. The “Continental” was where we had the biggest problem - it was supposed to include (according to the website) “a generous selection of fresh fruits, several servings in size along with a basket of biscuits, muffins, toast or the like.” We did receive a full plate of fruit but were given 1 small biscuit each and told there was nothing else. Also, when we asked for a glass of orange juice, the owner told us to “watch our sugar” since we also had the fruit. We felt that this was extremely inappropriate, hurtful, and left us feeling judged.

Overall the tone was dismal, and every question or request was met with condemnation. If you are looking for hospitality in Beaufort, do not stay here.

I had a great time at the inn. Quaint rooms. Lisset the innkeeper was nice and friendly. The breakfast was delicious. I loved sitting on the front porch enjoying the cool breeze. Definitely worth staying. I will be back. Great location close to Front St.

We enjoyed an upstairs room with access to the balcony. Room was very comfortable. Breakfast was especially nice with many choices and delightful conversation with our gracious host, Lizette.
We drove to Ft. Macon and hiked and lounged on the beach, took the ferry to the wilds horses and the light house. We used the bikes at the house and enjoyed a ride around the island. Restaurants we enjoyed Aqua house, Rhum bar, and the Millstone brewery.

So disappointing! We read the reviews and we cannot understand how this place is rated the third best place to stay in Beaufort.  Unless others felt as we did....we reserved for three nights and would have checked out after the first night but felt bad for the Widowed owner who is a very nice lady so we stuck it out for the full reservation. But i want to be honest about our stay so others don't  wind up in the same situation.
We stayed in the front room downstairs.  First night I had to clean the faucet and knobs of soap or toothpaste splatter.  First morning the too small shower stall had a heavily mildewed shower curtain, no shampoo and the same watered down liquid soap as was on the sink.  It was so watered down that you couldn't even get a lather on the washcloth. There was no shampoo to be seen nor lotion.  The drinks we put in the fridge the night before were not even cold.  That's when we checked further and found the fridge had been turned off.  It would have been nice to know that when the fridge was pointed out to us for our arrival. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and sat at an angle in the corner with no headboard so there is nothing to lean against if you are reading and the pillows kept falling off during the night.  While the Innkeeper, Lizette is very friendly and the breakfasts were filling, (though I believe that the orange juice is the same stuff the astronauts took to the moon....Tang! Who serves that???) we paid the extra $48 a day for the hallmark breakfast. While they were good and probably the best part of our stay they weren't worth the extra charge. Lizett was not surprised about the mildewed shower curtain's condition and said it was supposed to have been changed out, which it was that day but I felt she should have been more apologetic because it was disgusting and in such a small shower you couldn't help having the curtain touch you. And the shower is so small and dark don't even think about shaving your legs, even under your arms is a hazardous try.   The second morning we discovered that there was only one clean wash cloth left for us. Also, when the room was serviced each day, evidenced by the made up bed and the envelope requesting a gratuity, the toilet was never cleaned while we were there, but the toilet paper ( which was a cheap thin brand) was nicely folded into a point.
While most of the furnishings look antique,  instead of an old charming feel there's a run down feeling about Langdon House.  There's no tv anywhere, the only common Rooney is the dining room. There is no lock on your bedroom door, you do get a key to the front door which is always locked, and there is a nice front porch with rocking chairs to sit on and enjoy your coffee in the morning since breakfast isn't served until 8am and up until 11am. This is a bit late for us so we took out coffee down to the water and walked around before breakfast. The morning of our departure breakfast wasn't ready til 8:30.
The location is very central to everything, as are many of the other B&Bs. We plan on making this a frequent getaway as we enjoyed the town of Beaufort but we will not stay at Langdon House again.
 
We've been to many B&Bs and this is just not up to standards.

My husband and I enjoy romantic getaways at small bed and breakfasts. We discovered the Langdon House after visiting Beaufort for several years and staying in other area inns. It is heavenly. The rooms are lovely, especially the room on the 2nd floor, furnished with antiques and featuring a beautiful bathroom with whirlpool tub and oversized, multi-jet, glass enclosed shower. Breakfast is an event; Jimm and Lizette determined our likes/dislikes ahead of time via mail and prepared a feast (and I do mean feast) suited to our liking. The Prest's themselves are wonderful people, and we thoroughly enjoyed the conversations we had with them. The Inn is within walking distance of several restaurants, shops and the Beaufort Waterfont with views of the Rachel Carson Estuary Preserve and charter boat and kayak rentals. We loved staying at the Langdon House and definitely plan to go back.

This was not a pleasant experience. . .the proprietor was not welcoming and we felt we were intruding on her privacy; the rooms are very basic -- no TV or WiFi (though there is WiFi in the dining room); there was an old bottle of Ivory liquid soap in the shower; the book of menus was dated 2005/06 and she didn't have pleasant comments except for one restaurant which we did not care for. Breakfast is available but it's an extra cost. We had a fabulous dinner at the Cedar Inn and might stay there next time. The positives: central location and very clean.

Response from half-blood, Owner at Langdon House Bed and Breakfast
Responded Sep 12, 2013
Happy Traveler NC. I am so happy to have this public forum to respond to you directly about your stay and the feelings you left with. Never, ever, do I want anyone to have anything less than a perfect, happy-memorable stay at my home. I wish you had expressed yourself while you were here, as it would have afforded me an immediate (and fair) opportunity to do what I do best: make guests comfortable. Although your one night stay was too short time to live the Bed and Breakfast experience; I remind you that when you made your reservation I talked with you about the breakfast choices and you decided not to have breakfast the following morning. The rate difference is tiny (only $10 Difference) for a delicious breakfast (and $20 for our Specialty!). The coffee only option you selected is an option for people having to take the early Ferry or just no time to eat. I remember the special attention I put to our conversation on the morning of your departure, while you where enjoying your coffee and pastries. I asked about your dinner experience at the new restaurant in town. Do you recall this? Upon your arrival I showed you my 2005 scrap book so you could see how the restaurants look like, we looked over the updated menu book and gave you the links to browse all the menus.... and you said you didn’t like their offers at all.... This is a beautiful, old house (c 1733) with certain modern commodities; individual thermostats in the room, private bathrooms and a shower, with homey-touches like hangers to dry your swim suits (the reason to have a bottle of liquid Ivory soap so you can wash it so it does not go sour), Coastal Breeze toiletries, Oil of Olay facial treatment, hair dryer a mini fridge (to chill a bottle of wine or bring your own snacks) and clock alarm radio and Spa sounds...All of this is there for your private use, home-away from home. You may recall, I advertise in the website and make it clear upon reservation that that particular room where you stayed does not have Wi-Fi reception because of the thickness of these amazing original walls. One of the reasons I don't take online reservations is that I need the opportunity to explain what I have to offer and I like making the connection over the phone with a potential guest to find if this is the right Bed and Breakfast or not. Summarizing, I am proud of and joyful in providing a total relaxation Bed and Breakfast, very clean as you mentioned and away from TVs and any other noises that may disturb the sleep of people that are specifically looking for just that! Basic? Hardly! Relaxation? Priceless! This is one of the reasons why I have such a loyal, returning clientele-family and pleased new guests. I love giving my guests the opportunity to find me if they need me at anytime. To enhance that feeling of security and inclusion - I am here 24/7 available for guests, which of course is not standard in every B&B. You felt you were "Intruding on me"? is something that I cannot even imagine, been an innkeeper is what I live and breathe doing. It would have been kind of you, and better for us both, had you let me know specifically, while you were here, and we would have cleared it up immediately. As it is, I thank you for the wonderful opportunity to clarify my response to your review and I do hope when next you visit Beaufort you can find all what you expected and more!

Langdon House is located close to the historic district of Beaufort. You can easily walk to anywhere in the main shopping area. We stayed during a boat building event and found the town ongoings to be quite interesting.
The Inn itself is nothing special, not bad, but not outstanding. The space was not dirty that we could see, but considering how dark the house is, it was really hard to tell. Our room was very small and dark. The bathroom was tiny. There were two holes in the ceiling directly over the bed which was a little disconcerting. Breakfast was ok.
Although I would not recommend Langdon House to my friends, I would stay there again if there was no where else to stay.
