“A bit of Shangri La”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

We visited in late March 2011at the recommendation of a former Beaufort resident. Wow! This was a beautiful property with over the top amenities: lemonade & iced tea with cookies upon arrival; cheese, crackers and fresh fruit with purchased wine/cocktails; after dinner desserts and coffee; a beautifully served breakfast in the dining room featuring the best grits I've ever eaten!

There was a problem with our first floor reserved room so they put us in the Innkeeper's Suite which was beautiful. Windows on 3 sides, sitting area, desk area, dressing area, large marble bath with separate shower and jacuzzi, a private entrance and all beautifully furnished. It was hard to leave.

This is a wonderful place to stay when you go to Beaufort, SC. The service is wonderful, staff is super friendly and overly accomodating. We were handed a beautiful glass of champagne upon arrival, then had pastries while sitting by a fire !!! After our check in , our amazing room with fireplace was beautiful, then we wen to dinner and the Inn had our desserts waiting for us when we got back. Breakfast the next day was delicious , and we just couldnt get over the wonderful people who took such good care of us. First rate all the way!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 15 in the cottage - beautiful and spacious

This is the best place to stay in Beaufort SC. I've tried other B & B's in the area and this one tops all of them. The warm hospitality, yet allows you privacy and overall Southern charm makes this a perfect place. Lots of refreshments during the day and a comfortable beautiful rooom with all the comforts of home. I stayed there last Feb and will be returning this one. The area has lots of do, shopping, sightseeing and fine dining. Loved it and will return.

Room Tip: My room was on the veranda and very nice!

We had a most relaxing time in this comfortable hotel. We stayed in an annexe suite which was very comfortable. They serve wonderful breakfasts, have bikes to borrow to enjoy the surrounding countryside, nice restaurants and a pretty town, all on the doorstep. We also enjoyed kayaking and visiting the surrounding towns. All the staff were very welcoming, helpful and charming - Thanks

Room Tip: We stayed in a maisonette duplex away from the main house which we enjoyed, we also checked out the...
