“Lovely get-away on Cat Island”
Reviewed January 28, 2009

My husband and I absolutely loved staying at this lovely B&B located on a quiet inlet. We were greeted warmly by our two hosts who prepared delicious breakfasts to start our day. The house is charming and clean, decorated with an array of antiques and various collectables, and the rooms are cozy and well-equipped. There is a special room with bath specially designed for the handicap on the first floor. The veranda looks out to an inlet where one can sit on a rocking chair and enjoy the chirping birds and various ducks passing by--or relax on the hammock and enjoy the incredible peace and beauty of his special place on Cat Island. The things that really struck us is how peaceful and quiet and charming this B&B is. It's great for people with varied interests such as golf (which is next door) walking or biking along the quiet roads and wetlands, or exploring the nearby historic towns of Beaufort (don't miss the historic carriage ride) and Point Royal which both have delicious dining. It is also pet-friendly. The entire experience captivates the charm and hospitality for which the South is reknown. Anita & Daniel Mann

Stayed three nights at this jewel of a B & B near Beaufort, South Carolina. My second floor room faced east overlooking a wide river and the rising sun. There was a private balcony with triple doors, a roomy bath and comfortable, king bed. I especially liked the down pillows of various sizes. There was access to a long pier and wooded trails. The nearby commercial areas have charming shops and many fine restaurents. My stay was relaxing and enjoyable from start to finish.

  • Liked — Lush setting with gorgeous views from my room
  • Disliked — no towel bars in bathroom

Prior to arrival at the Beaulieu House, I had been warned about the abundant doll collection adorning the walls. Otherwise, I would have completely melted down from the eccentric collection of glass eyes staring at me from every shelf in the house.

Overall, Beaulieu House is very clean and well kept, and the grounds are secluded a peaceful. My only complaint is that during my four-night stay at Beaulieu, I never once got breakfast. Seems the 8:am serving time tends to get postponed until 8:30 or later. Since I had to be in Beaufort and Hunting Island for other events happening during my stay, I was out the door before getting a chance at french toast and scones that were served to my traveling partners.

And one other collection I discovered during my stay: the owner posts verbose instructional signs all over the property...over light switches, in bathrooms, on nightstands...all reminding visitors to turn off the lights at night or not fill the tub too full or how to lock the door from the inside.

If you have a high tolerence for the eccentric, Beaulieu House offers clean, colorful comfort away from home. If you are on the move in the mornings, pack a granola bar for the road.

  • Liked — our family was very comfortable during our stay
  • Disliked — didn't get breakfast
