Overall this was a very nice place. The room was lovely and it was great to have a porch to sit on. The negative is that the rooms are not soundproofed. You hear everything from the hallways and other rooms. We stayed there for business, and made a call at 9:30 am , we walked out of our room to a person in the room next door screaming and cursing at us that we woke her up and how rude we were and that we should go outside to make calls. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone that needs to conduct business from their room or has children that could make noises.
Stayed here to get a couple days away from the grind. I sure picked the right spot. The room we had was excellent, clean and good sized. We were able to enjoy the grounds, which are beautiful, with the oak trees and the tidal creek. Breakfast was great, held us way over lunch time. I would recommend this to anyone. We stayed in the Indigo room. Beautiful poster bed and claw foot tub.
We loved our stay here...far enough away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to enjoy historic Charleston. The hosts were friendly and attentive and the breakfast was great. The only downside was how dark our room was. The bathroom was so dark it made applying makeup a guessing game each day and although the small clawfoot tub was quaint, it was a little scary getting in and out as there was nothing to hold onto. Other than that, the room was lovely, the bed very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. We would stay here again if in the area, we would just probably book a different room than the indigo.
We have lived in Charleston for 72 years and we love our wonderful, Southern heritage. But if you have never spent a few days South of Broad (no initials, please), YOU DO NOT KNOW CHARLESTON. That community lives life in a different way than the rest of the area - bridge groups in the afternoon, social hours in the early evening, gorgeous but hidden away gardens, walking to church - it's life as it was 200 years ago and the way we all know it ought to be. And there is no better place to experience the real Charleston than at 15 Church Street with Jack and Annelise - and Fannie the Lab and Drifter the marmalade - and be sure to spend some time with Julie (cooks, cleans, gardens, grooms pets). We chose the Simmons as our hosts for celebrating our 50th anniversary and we could not have been more delighted.
Beautiful old historic inn in a beautiful old historic town. The problem with a review of a B&B is that everyone has high expectations of a B&B, so it's a bit deceiving. The bottom line is everything was great and we would definitely stay there again. Our hosts were very knowledgeable and gave good recommendations not only about Beaufort, but about Savannah as well.
This is a gorgeous setting outside the hustle and bustle of Charleston. The owners were wonderful and we had a very comfortable stay. The only downside is the room we stayed in (the Indigo) was lovely, but so dark, with little lighting. It was very difficult to read in the room or to put on makeup. Also, the shower in the clawfoot tub left a lot to be desired. The bed was wonderful, and the place was beautiful, and we would return here in a heartbeat, but we would probably try a different room for better lighting.
We have stayed at the Inn at Ion twice over the past two years, and both visits were wonderful. The rooms are lovely and very clean, and the views from the rocking chairs on our porch were beautiful. The Inn is less than 0.25 miles away from an amazing coffee shop in Mt Pleasant - Collective Coffee. After walking through the lovely Ion Community in the mornings, which includes stunning nature trails along the marshland, we walked over to get a fantastic coffee and breakfast/brunch at Collective Coffee. Since Ion is close to the bridge over to Charleston, we had easy access to both downtown Charleston in addition to Mt. Pleasant and Sullivan's Island. We look forward to our next stay!
We had a wonderful time staying at the Cuthbert house. We would highly recommend this B&B. The history of the house, the furnishings, all take you back in time. Wish we had more time to explore Beaufort SC. Ed and Connie are gracious inn keepers and are more than happy to do anything to make your stay the best it can be. Would we return, you bet, in a heartbeat.
We stayed in the Eastlake Suite that offered a separate spacious living room with a gas fireplace and a wonderful bedroom & bath. We will definitely return for a relaxing visit.
We had an outstanding fall weekend getaway at Cuthbert House Inn. The location along Bay Street offered a gorgeous bay side view with close proximity, walking distance to the restaurants, shops and the waterside boardwalk. The staff were all so gracious and attentive to each and every guest. The rooms and common areas were beautifully decorated and accommodating for relaxing with a good book; conversation with the owners and other guests; as well as breakfast dining with a waterview. We will be booking a future vacation at Cuthbert House.
This is a beautiful old house, in a great location, our room was spacious and very comfortable. The dining room was bright and airy. The breakfast was delicious made to order French toast with real maple syrup. The owners greeted us in the morning and made us feel very comfortable. We will be going back.
My husband and I enjoyed two nights here and the location was fantastic, just a few blocks from all the old Charleston attractions. The staff was quick to attend to any needs or requests. It's a lovely old mansion! We had a great time at the daily tea/wine hour getting to know the other guests. Breakfast was pretty basic during our stay, but tasty and plentiful. The house is very clean, but the outside side porch was too dusty for me to want to sit out there, which was sad to me because the rocking chairs were very inviting!
Although it is located between two Carriage Houses, this B&B is only a block or so from the City Market and is located directly across the street from Cru, one of Charleston's most trendy restaurants. There are only 5 rooms. We stayed in the Parisian, which was comfortable, but small. The B & B only provides you with a DYI continental breakfast, but we knew that before we booked. Also, there is only parking for 3 small cars behind the building and on street parking is very limited. This is a good choice for the budget minded traveler.
This was my first stay at a B&B, and my husband and I loved it! The breakfast was delicious, the room was nice and clean, the social hour was nice, and the inn itself it very historic and grand. Loved it!
My husband and I had a fantastic time at the Governor's House. It's a beautiful house with a perfect location in Charleston. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. I highly recommend this B and B.
This is a lovely historic home with nicely decorated rooms. We had the Mariner Suite with its own entrance. It had a very large private bathroom with a whirlpool tub. The king size bed was very comfortable. I especially liked our own semi-private patio facing the waterfront. They served a delicious breakfast with great coffee. I recommend the Cuthbert House for a great bed and breakfast experience.
Jack and Annelise were hosts extraordinaire. We were there for four nights and really felt part of the family the minute we got there. As first timers in Charleston the location was ideal. Originally had a rental car but quickly got rid of it and walked. Couldn't have been better. Their staff was helpful and friendly and made you feel at home. Take advantage of their suggestions for dinners, tours, etc. They really know the best! We will forever have fond memories of Charleston because of our stay. Although off our bucket list, we look forward to another visit. And, there is only ONE place we will stay. Don't miss out. Richard Allen
I had wanted to stay at this inn for a long time. Usually when we go to Charleston its for business and we stay in the historic district. However, certain times of year it is more expensive than other times. Getting a room for over $300 a night makes no sense unless its a special occasion. This last trip was during a peak season, the Ion Inn had rooms available, so we gave it a try. I can honestly say that this is where I will be staying from now on when visiting Charleston. Mt. Pleasant is a really nice area with plenty of good restaurants, and about 10 minutes over the bridge your in Charleston. The Inn at Ion is part of a beautiful quaint village. That we enjoyed walking around in. The Inn itself is equally as beautiful and quaint. We had a private parking space. The room was large and well decorated. After an exhausting day we especially liked the porch attached to our room with rocking chairs for relaxing. Service and staff were exceptional. There is a new Italian restaurant on site that we visited for a complimentary glass of wine and appetizer that the Inn offered since they no longer offer a complimentary breakfast with the room. We had a large lunch before checking in so we didn't do dinner. However, I definitely plan to on our next visit. Their menu sounded wonderful. This is a hidden gem just over the bridge from Charleston in the quiet Ion village of Mt. Pleasant. Worth checking out!
this was our first time visiting Beaufort. Had a great suite on the first floor of the Cuthbert House with unbelievable views of the water. The suite was oversized and very clean. The decor was definitely was tasteful and warm. Thanks for a great experience, and we look forward to returning.
Owner was beyond courteous when I called about getting my bag to the upstairs room. When we arrived, he carried up to my room and placed it on the luggage rack himself. As we were checking out, he offered to let us keep our car parked and avail ourselves of coffee and restroom breaks at the Inn while we walked to take in the last few sights of Beaufort. Would definitely return for another stay!
