“Great place and dog friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I had just adopted a collie in NC and was on the way home to Florida. We were shocked that The Beaufort Inn is dog-friendly. They do require a $250 deposit in case of damage, but that was not a problem. Check-in was speedy and we were given lots of local information while the staff walked us to our room. The room was very large and comfortable. And do not skip breakfast there!!! It was outstanding!!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Beaufort Inn for two nights and totally enjoyed our stay. The staff was exceptional, very helpful and very nice. The inn's location is perfect for exploring this beautiful city on foot, close to the historical houses, charming shops and great restaurants. The inn is beautifully decorated and comfortable and the breakfast was terrific. We would highly recommend this inn.

My wife and I scheduled a last minute getaway with some friends to Beaufort, SC and stayed at The Beaufort Inn. It is one of the best Inns we've ever stayed in. The staff was extremely nice and helpful, great restaraunt suggestions and even made the reservations for us ahead of time. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean, great bathrooms with huge tubs and showers, very nice patios/common areas to relax and mingle with guests and by far the best breakfast EVER! Made to order omlettes, French toast "bakes", fresh pastries, home-made granola bars, sausage and egg casseroles... did I say best breakfast EVER?!? There is even an adjacent Spa, but make reservations before you come just in case. We stayed in the Carriage House but they also have very quaint historic "cottages" that we are going to try next time....just because they look cool. The Inn is within walking distance to historic downtown, waterfront park, shops and restaraunts. There is a carriage tour within walking distance that points out all of the historical buildings and churches of Beaufort. Hunting Island Beach State park is a short distance away (15 mins) with great beaches, nature trails and you can climb the lighthouse. The Beaufort Inn is a great place to stay, we'll be coming back!

Room Tip: Carriage house rooms have great baths with claw foot tubs and huge showers. Cottages are quaint and...

My husband and I reserved a garden cottage suite at Beaufort Inn the weekend of our wedding and it definitely didn’t disappoint! The staff were super sweet and accommodating, making sure our stay was perfect and the rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds were soo comfortable, but the best part to us was claw-foot soaking tub and rainwater massage showers. The Beaufort Inn is conveniently located downtown, but nestled quietly behind Bay Street. It’s a pleasurable and short walking distance to Beaufort’s restaurants, bars, and shops. If you’re in town the weekend before Thanksgiving, don’t miss out on home tours nearby at The Point for Homes for the Holidays-look into it online. Beaufort is ultra-charming and Beaufort Inn definitely encompasses that as well. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Loved the garden cottage suite. It's located behind the main house, with separate entry way thro...

This gorgeous Inn in located in the heart of Beaufort. There are some great bars/restaurants that are walking distance and the water front area and all the old churches and historical houses are steps away.

The service was exceptional and even when we had a slight problem at check in it was resolved quickly and efficiently. We stayed in one of the rooms in the cottage directly behind the main house. The room was great and the bathroom with its clawfoot tub and unbelievable massage and rain shower was very relaxed.

Hunting Island state park is only about 12 miles down the road and they have beaches there that are part of a State Park and so are not commercialized at all. There is also a beautiful lighthouse there.

The restaurant in the Inn was good but very quiet when we were there. Maybe a touch stuffy, but the food made up for that, everything we both had was excellent. If you are staying several nights, try a dinner at the Inn and eat out as well. There are some great places that are close!

We were delighted to return to your lovely Inn -- our room was charming, clean and very comfortable. As before, the breakfast was outstanding -- and we were happy to see that you offer dinner with wine pairings, too. The next time our travels take us your way, we will be sure to stay with you again!! Thank you............

We got the package through TravelZoo and were very pleased. The Inn and Hosts are very inviting. The room was as comfortable as you can ask for. We really enjoyed the peaceful environment and the location was very central to the Historic District (everything in walking distance). The eating establishments and the waterfront were exceptional. The only negative was the chef and assistant seemed to be more attentive to delivery of food to the cottages and large groups at the main house. Couples at breakfast were often trying to get coffee or cups for coffee. On our last day of three, my wife ordered eggs from the chef and after approximately 20 minutes we cancelled the order because of other commitments. The chef was visible around the main dining room for only a couple minutes during our stay--the cook surfaces were there in the same area as the diners. Overall, the stay was excellent except for the "breakfast" portion as noted. However, just the opposite for Dinner at the Inn's Southern Graces Bistro. The food, presentation and service were top notch! All 5 Stars!
