Spent a wonderful overnight at the Inn. The original room we booked was very hot so they upgraded us to a suite instead and asked if it was all right. The suite was large and nicely furnished. The Inn itself is very pretty with a three story circular staircase. The breakfast was great with several choices and the ability to...

My wife and I just completed our third stay at the Beaufort Inn and we enjoyed every minute. We have stayed in three different rooms and this one (#25) was probably our favorite. The upstairs Garden Cottage is very nice - with vaulted ceilings and a private balcony. Very quiet setting. And so close to great restaurants and the waterfront!...

We stayed at the Beaufort Inn last weekend and had an overall wonderful experience. Since the 1990s it's been one of my favorite places to stay in a town that's now called, deservingly, America's Happiest Seaside Town. Whether you stay in the centuries-old main house or in one of the many posh cottages you'll be swept off your feet by...

Dear Richard H., I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay in one of our Historic Queen accommodations. The private balcony that adjoins room 5 is often a very pleasant surprise and quickly becomes a guest favorite. I regret that the street lamps impacted your stay.

The Beaufort Inn demonstrates all of the best parts of the South - the friendly smile, the above and beyond gestures, the eccletic food, attention to details that matter, the feeling that you are amongst friends, and the charm you would expect from Southern belles. I can't wait to go back - spring for the garden cottage! So worth it!
