This a lovely property right in the middle of Beaufort's historic district, within easy walking distance of fine shops and restaurants. There are several buildings separated by courtyards and we were in one the Port Republic cottages, facing the street of that name. It was very spacious and comfortable - a living room with a couch and two chairs, a large bath and a large bedroom (which could use one more chair).
The breakfasts were delightful - a buffet which included specially prepared dishes such as cream cheese/fruit bread pudding, fresh fruit, sweet buns, and bacon. They will also prepare eggs as you like them, including omelets.
The only reasons I give them four instead of five stars are that the staff, while very friendly and helpful, are sometimes not available to speak with because they are off helping another guest and there is only one person at the front desk. Also, our cottage was somewhat noisy due to large trucks rumbling down the narrow street, a plow grading a parking lot across the street and the very thin walls between the two units in the cottage building. I would advise staying in one of their other room selections, such as the garden cottages which are back off the street or maybe a suite in the main house, though I do not know if their walls are any more insulated.
