This is my second choice in Beaufort, NC. The first thing you have to know about these places in and around Beaufort is there will be some dampness .... They are kinda on the water and in a very humid area, they are family run, they are not and are not meant to be Luxurious accommodates.
This Inn has a view of the fishing boats coming and going and the draw bridge. It is a short walk to Front Street where little shops are a bit more unique and quaint and if you like taking walks you can very easily walk out of the Inn and start exploring the historic streets of Beaufort which are shady and beautiful.
This is a family owned Inn I believe and all staff was pleasant to myself and the family members with me. The first time I stayed here I was given a regular real key and laid it down on the bed so I could go out on the balcony to see the view. I pulled the door shut behind me because I have learned that rooms get damp feeling very quick and the breezes and get stronger and bang a door around. Well I locked myself out and because it was late all staff had left for the day. It took sometime to get someone to help me and this is silly but it was by calling the police (thank goodness for cell phones) who knew the owners and got me some assistance. The owner came out and we worked on getting the key up to the third story. I got in and apologize and we had a laugh.
Although some might find all that awful and a reason to get upset I found it another one of those memories to add to my life and smile about and move on.
