My husband usually never stay in B&B’s, so keep that in perspective, when staying recently at the Anchorage 1770, I was shocked at the price for the quality. The price was $350.00 per night. The room was what I would call not very clean. It was obvious that they only ‘hit the high spots’ when tidying up the room. For example, in the corners of the walls on the baseboards was a lot of dust. The ceiling was peeling from water damage. The bathroom was not marble, it was a faux marble. The sheet on the bed was so wrinkled that it looked like it has just been taken out of the dryer, after being sitting for a long time. The sheets were a poly blend. The bed was not comfortable. The room should have been, in my opinion, around $150.00 to $175.00 for the quality. We choose to not eat at the restaurant in the house, due to the quality of the room. The young lady that checked us in, asked if I would like a glass of champagne, upon check in and I said yes, she never brought it to the room, as she said she would. If you look at the back of the Historic home, the view is a flat lot of a pavement, NOTHING else. The landscaping around the home is lacking attention. On the whole, I do not think the quality of the stay warrants the price. And mind you, we were staying in mid January, when nothing is really going on, to warrant the price.

My wife and I decided to hide out at Anchorage 1770 for Thanksgiving, and it was a stellar decision. Amazingly warm staff; outstanding food (especially Thanksgiving dinner); historic home; all staff practicing Covid safety including eating all meals outside on the porch, well distanced; and the local historic seaside flavor of Beaufort as a bonus. We highly recommend the luxury and hospitality of the Anchorage, and you will be charmed by the staff and owners.

I wanted to explore Beaufort for the first time and in doing my research was initially intrigued by the beautiful columns and location of Anchorage 1770 as I am a huge of historic houses in Greek Revival and similar style. I found out there is more to this beauty than meets the eye! Not only is the hotel historic, but it is super-historic. It is tabby construction that may go back to the late 1700s, which is great for architecture and history buffs. Make sure to read up on the history of the house through fire, hurricane, Civil War, and a number of ownership changes that sent into into the hands of the capable and friendly current owners. When checking out I actually met Amy, who gave me more color on the history in addition to several other tips on exploring beautiful Beaufort! Check-in on a rainy day was gracious and worry-free, and I enjoyed a rich but not-too-rich meal at Ribaut Social Club: wonderful fresh food in an intimate and mellow setting. (Do not miss the radish salad with blue cheese and smoky sweet pecans!) Breakfast the next morning was on the veranda in glorious sunlight dappling over the water just across the street. The hotel has three levels of veranda that are ideal for a relaxed view of the water. The columns and view are absolutely to DIE for. I stayed in the lower cottage, which was actually nice from a social distancing standpoint. The hotel provides sound machines in case one wants white noise. Parking is right next to hotel - just call when you check in. Really not sure what more one could ask for in a boutique hotel in the lowcountry built over 200 years ago and still welcoming guests to relaxation and delectation of all the senses. Anchorage 1770 is a jewel in a jewel of a town.
