Guest Reviews

Love! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back! The rooms were gorgeous, breakfasts were delicious and the social hours were so much fun! Julie and Karen were wonderful hosts - it was so nice to meet them and they’re perfect for this job! Beaufort downtown is right next to the house, and nice to walk around. Great spot for a low key, relaxing getaway.

I absolutely love staying here and really enjoyed meeting the new owners! Chris and Suzanne are excellent hosts and a pleasure to spend time with. I am so excited about the new renovations and their pride in the property. Will definitely be back soon and won’t stay any where else when i visit again! Hard to beat this place!

We could feel our bed move a little whenever someone walked in the hallway outside of our room....See More
