Cuthbert House Inn
Ranked #1 of 5 Beaufort B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 20, 2006

We could not have been happier with our experience at the Cuthbert House Inn. The house was already beautiful and the new innkeepers are continuing to improve it. It has a beautiful balance of historical accuracy and gentle, elegant comfort in both its interior and exterior. A clean and neat and very well cared for property.
Breakfasts were varied and excellent over the four day stay.
Jeff and Mary Ann also create the perfect balance of warm helpfullness and non intrusiveness. You feel very welcome there. I watched them interact beautifully with many and varied people.
Views are just wonderful. Sunrise and sunset were stunning.
Several wonderful places to eat in walking distance.
Much better than Hilton Head for a quiet, lovely and historically interesting place to stay.

We just got back from the Cuthbert House Inn relaxed. refreshed and soooo Happy! The owners Jeff and MaryAnn were so gracious. We truly felt like we were the only guests there and yet I know they had a full house. We knew nothing about the area and relied on their knowledge of where we should hangout and where the best seafood was. Boy did they send us in the right directions. Our dinners at the 11street Dockside were some of the very best we have ever had. The Hunting Island State Park is the most Beautiful Park we have ever visited. We did not want to leave!The Inn was Lovely and the food was a taste of heaven. We will definetly go back and hopefully our family and friends will have the oppurtunity to do the same. Go Enjoy Relax Eat See the sights!!!! We did'nt get a chance to go on one of the many histortic tours,but we did our own walking tour of the beautifull downtown area. So much to see and yet at the same time your spellbound at the beauty and history that surrounds you. It was in the high 90's but the steady breeze from the water kept us cool and comfortable while we walked.While we were there we also got to see a Beautifull full Marine Military Wedding! It was a spectacular sight to see. Go to the Cuthbert House Inn and visit with Jeff and MaryAnn and you will leave knowing you have had the best the EAST COAST has to offer!!!!

Had a mother/daughter trip to Cuthbert Inn in May- just felt like we were more of an inconvince! Had to wait several minutes to be let in the door, then the innkeeper was called away for several more minutes just as he was taking us on the tour and explaining inn policy, etc. Asked for the bikes so we could bke around the town- he forgot to put them outside, so we had to return to room to call him. Had to ask for restaurant suggestions and then just got a verbal listing- didn't sound like he was real familar with some of them- did not offer to make reservations. Breakfast was ok- noticed other table had to ask for a glass of juice- we were not offered any until we asked. All in all just seemed kind of unfriendly and perhaps stingy for the price we paid. No replacement of bottled water (2- 8 ounce bottles in room) or ammenities in bathroom (soap, shampoo, etc).. Air conditioning in our room was not set very high when we got there- he adjusted that, but it took several hours to feel comfortable. Probably not worth the $200+ per night that we paid including taxes. We had just stayed two nights at the Hayne House in Charleston and this was just not up to Hayne House standards!

We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights there this past weekend May 18-20 and were simply overwhelmed with the charm of this great home. Situated right on the beautiful Beaufort Riverfront, the views from the porches were stunning. The suites were spacious and beautifully decorated. Even better, the innkeepers were most accommodating, providing a great meal each morning and all of the little perks that you don't expect -- bikes for two couples as well as a stack of beach towels and beach chairs for an impromptu trip to the nearby beach. Jeff and Mary Ann were great hosts and we can't wait to return!

This is a beautiful B&B!! Jeff is an extraordinary host attending to every detail guests could ever want. It is obvious he loves his job.

The nightly wine and conversation was a great way to meet others staying at the inn. The location is great and one can see everything by just walking. The walking tour with John Sharp is a must for anyone going to Beaufort.

The rooms at the inn are decorated beautifully and the breakfasts that are served are very good too. It would be a shame to come to Beaufort and not stay at the Cuthbert House.

The Cuthbert House Inn is wonderful in every respect. The house is very well decorated. Our room, the Garden Room, had every amenity we could desire. We were particularly impressed by the presence of a "corkscrew" and appropriate glassware for all kinds of wine--that is something we have not experience in other B&Bs. Breakfast each morning was a treat, as were the "snacks" and wine late in the afternoon. Jeff, a co-innkeeper, was especially gracious about suggesting restaurants for dinner, making reservations for us and providing guidance on what to see and do.

To all who have written disparaging remarks about the innkeepers of the Cuthbert House Inn, I have great news: the Cuthbert House is under new management!!
I stayed there recently and was absolutely delighted with the hospitality of the new innkeepers.

At first, I was apprehensive about staying there based on all the negative reviews online, but the apparent problem of unfriendliness and hostility towards the guests has been eliminated! Jeff and Mary Ann (the new innkeepers) are very pleasant to be around and terrific hosts.

True to past reviews, the house itself is absolutely gorgeous! It is right on the water in historic downtown Beaufort with a view of one of the prettiest sunsets I've seen in a long time. Beaufort is a true gem, the Cuthbert House Inn is a fantastic, warm place to stay, and I can't wait to go back for another visit!
