Best of the best in BnB.

Excellent weekend trip to Beaufort for an anniversary getaway. My wife and I stayed in the Coastal suite and it was exceptional. The waterfront views from our private patio, luxury suite, and owners evening reception all made the stay first class. The breakfast each morning, wine and heavy hor d'oeuvre's each night, and the courtesy bicycle rentals for us to cruise around town all made the trip special and a must return trip in the future.

Would highly recommend The Cuthbert House Inn

My partner and I stayed at this lovely Bed & Breakfast for an overnight stay as we made our way down the South Carolina coust this summer. The home is absolutely stunning and the location is ideal. A beautiful view of the water and within walking distance of the history, quaint downtown Beaufort area. We would definitely stay here again when visiting the area.

Loved everything about it!

We had an amazing visit at the house. Loved everything about it except the toilet paper. It was cheap and made the experience feel like we were at the Best Western down the street. I know it's a small thing, but those things go a long way....

We are repeat guests and always have a wonderful time. We are treated well and Jeff and Mary Ann always make us feel so welcome. The Wine and Cheese hour is so much fun and we never want to leave this great Inn. The Delaneys

This was my second stay at The Cuthbert House Inn. I always enjoy visiting the beautiful city of Beaufort, SC. I have stayed at a couple of other historic inns there, but nothing can compare with the welcoming atmosphere of the Cuthbert House Inn. You truly feel at home. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfast is outstanding and the evening social gathering to chat is such a great time! The owners are so gracious and their staff is excellent! Looking forward to my next stay there!!!

One of the Best B&B's
