“32nd annual gathering of Friends”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

Each year 9 friends gather in a different location to renew their friendship and celebrate their bond. The Beaufort Inn was the location this year and the setting and staff made it an altogether special occasion. The accommodations were perfect and Julie worked hard to make sure we had a good time and everything we needed. the location was ideal for exploring Beaufort whether on foot or by car. Although the Inn was full, it never seemed crowded and the staff was never harried. They were always pleasant and helpful. I recommend the Beaufort Inn enthusiastically and without hesitation to anyone who wants to experience Beaufort and the low country. It is an experience that should not be missed!

Room Tip: Every room seemed nice in the main house and the cottages were excellent as well. did not tour the r...

"My husband and I needed a weekend get-away - The Beaufort Inn was the perfect destination! The room was so nice, breakfast was amazing (and included in the price), and it's located a block from the waterfront park. We loved our stay. Rebecca at check-in was so friendly! We would love to make this an annual trip!

Adele and Jackie are both very pleasant and helpful. We stayed on the 3rd floor in what felt like an attic room and loved it, it was quiet and cozy and clean. Really good location in town amongst all the gorgeous houses of Beaufort. We will stay again.

Beaufort is my home and my recent stay at the Beaufort Inn, located in the heart of downtown Beaufort, was delightful. I was in need of some quiet time and got just what I was looking for. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the staff most attentive. I checked in on Friday, had a scrumptious lunch (shrimp and grits..great presentation by the way) and had a great "walk about" in my old home town. The meals were very reasonably priced and the service good. Within a short walk from the inn are a number of art galleries, eateries, and shops. I walked down to the Bay Front Park, spent some time in the swings and watched a few boats meander down the Beaufort River. Saturday morning, after a buffet breakfast I picked up the local newspaper and sat on the inn's front porch taking in weather, watching horse drawn carriages, bicyclists, and the locals pass by. If you looking for good hotel the Beaufort Inn is SO MUCH MORE. If you want to immerse yourself in the local culture and have a experience that you will remember for some time to come, treat yourself to the Beaufort Inn. The inn has an several outdoor areas that could easily suit a mid size wedding and a catering staff that is set up to handle such events. There was ample parking in the back. The landscaping in the Garden Courtyard made me feel like I was truly back home. I have traveled all over the world and the Beaufort Inn is one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. This is one of the best kept secrets in Beaufort...don't tell anyone!!

Room Tip: I would ask for a room overlooking the Courtyard Garden..

My husband and I stayed at the Beaufort Inn while visiting friends. The staff was wonderful, friendly and very helpful. The made to order omelets were delicious and lunch and dinner were superb. We really appreciated that the Inn was located within walking distance of historic homes, churches, other dining, shopping and the waterfront park.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Beaufort Inn and would highly recommend it to anyone enjoys true Southern hospitality.

Stayed 9/25 to 9/29 2011.

There is nothing quite like the Beaufort Inn. The atmosphere is a perfect blend of humble sophistication and simplistic elegance. You can not go wrong with any room, but the Carriage House is especially wonderful. The surrounding town and waterfront contribute to a memorable stay that you'll long to relive.
