Anniversary Getaway

5 on December 21, 2014

Our two-night stay was lovely! We were so impressed with the owners attention to detail, from the soft and comfy robes to the little pot of lip-balm. The hosts were friendly and very helpful in making arrangements and dinner reservations for us. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We certainly plan to return!

The service and hospitality was outstanding!!! The room was out of this world! Great stay! Really enjoyed it. Plan to go back and spend more days next time.

A surprise find!

We arrived at the Inn late in the afternoon for a quick one night stay. Once greeted at the door and to find we were the last to check in, we were shown our room and the amenities were discussed. There was a wine and cheese going on so we went to take advantage of it before dinner. We met guests and the owners while enjoying the wonderful wine offered. Once we returned from dinner, we found the bed to be perfect for my wife and I firmness (soft pillow top). Breakfast was fantastic. Hated to leave but it was time to travel on. A real treat to stay here and we hope to return next year and stay longer.

Had a very relaxing weekend in this great town. The breakfast and hospitality was wonderful. Enjoyed the Veteran's Day parade down the main street in town. Great eats and shops in the area to enjoy.

Wonderful, relaxing vacation

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing vacation at the Cuthbert House Inn. Our room was quiet and peaceful, with lovely views of the bay and garden area. Breakfast every morning had a touch of elegance (but was not stuffy), the food was delicious, and the host and hostess were very accommodating with special requests. We look forward to returning.

Off season stay in SC

Great historic house in the heart of Beaufort. Walking distance to town. We had basement room, large and spacious enough for a week or longer stays, but quaint enough for a getaway. The people are gracious and friendly, everything you think of southern hospitality. This is a place for everyone's list.

Great Place - Elegant

Have stayed at many B&Bs, but first one where hosts have an evening social with wine and cheese to meet their guests. Nice room and breakfast as well.
