I am normally a budget extended stay hotel kind of traveler but since I did not want to have to drive to and from Morehead or elsewhere everyday I treated myself to a Cousin's B&B for my trip to Beaufort and am so glad I did. Martha and Elmo are the nicest couple and the breakfasts were the best I ever ate. My room (the Fish Room) was quiet and comfortable. It took a little getting used to having my bath room (mine only with lock and key) across the hall and a separate sitting room but both were very nice and easily adapted to. The sitting room was lovely and large with my own little balcony outside and a mini fridge included. It was so nice to sit outside and enjoy the cool breezes and read after returning from shopping or a tour. Loved the tours in Beufort and Martha knows just about everybody so was very helpful in suggesting which tour groups to use. They were also more than willing to prepare me an earlier breakfast so I could take a 9:00 tour. Martha and Elmo were always very friendly and willing to chat but also not ever intrusive when I chose to keep to myself. I normally travel alone and sometimes get a little nervous but here I felt completely safe and very comfortable coming and going at my leisure. I highly recommend Cousin's B&B and hope to make a return trip in the future.

We stayed here last night. On a whim I called and they had vacancy. Me and my husband stayed in the fish room. Everything about this place is so cozy. The art gallery has wonderful pieces, and the layout is very inviting. Martha and Elmo are so friendly. I felt like I was visiting my grandparents. Elmo made a fabulous breakfast for us and we chatted about family and Beaufort. They know so much about the area. I plan to return with some friends in the summer. If you are looking for a cute, friendly and good spot to be close to downtown Beaufort then this is it! Thank you for welcoming us. We will return! Rebekah And Kevin R.

My daughter and I stayed at this B&B for 3 days and we were so impressed with the hospitality and the B&B that we will return on our next visit! The room was exceptionally clean, the inn keepers were also exceptionally welcoming and helpful! I wanted to take this cottage home with me! The upstairs porch was my favorite place to rest; it was within walking distance to downtown Beaufort, the museum, many shops, restaurants and much more!
