Charming, Rustic, & Classy B & B

5 on August 20, 2015

We recently enjoyed this very unique, slightly rustic but charming B & B for 4 nights and we couldn't have found a better place for what we needed. The owner & hostess was truly amazing at what she does and we found her to be very friendly and very interesting. We enjoyed her stories of her many travels all over the world. We enjoyed meeting her dear & precious granddaughter & her daughter & son-in-law. We enjoyed meeting the other guests and especially sharing the most most amazing & delicious breakfasts that she baked from scratch. She shared with us some of her favorite places to visit & restaurants to try. We were not disappointed at all & will definitely come back again........Rick & Susanne

Beaulieu is lovely, clean, quiet; the owner is very nice, helpful. Breakfast was delicious. We had dinner the night before at a nearby Golf Club; the food was very good and service was excellent. Tip: Ignore the directions on the Beaulieu House website. Since most use GPS these days, likely you would use that. We do not as we both really like maps. Just beware of the posted directions. A major step is missing. A combo of 'google map & directions' and a SC map or book of maps should help.

The rooms were large and very comfortable. The welcome (with a drink/conversation with others) outstanding. The location on the water beyond our wildest hopes. A real find. The Golf Clubhouse restaurant was less than a five minute walk and was "way up there".

Very comfortable accommodations in a pleasant setting

The B&B is located on the water within a new golf course community. A nice location for walking. Our room was clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the water. The staff was courteous and very helpful. For the price, I expected more from breakfast - at least some consideration for our dietary preferences.

great place by the river

great place by the the beaten path but that is what we were looking for and only minutes to shops etc. Had a great breakfast also!

A beautiful place

The Inn Keeper went out of her way to please everyone. There were two other couples there the weekend we stayed. One couple wanted a special breakfast of egg white omelets and bottled water, even though the place has a $4000 Kinetico Water purification system, the Inn Keeper made that breakfast, then made a special trip into town to get the bottled water. That's my kind of Inn Keeper. Food was great, setting was perfect and the rooms were clean. No one could ever have the right to complain about a place like this. They even have a large fenced in area for our dog permitting us to leave our dog out for the day while we went to the beach. We will be back!

We love your B&B!

My husband and I stayed at the Beaulieu House on Cat Island for a weekend getaway, and it was absolutely FANTASTIC!! The owner and her family were there and we loved getting to know them over lively breakfast conversation! The house is BEAUTIFUL and remote (a huge plus for us), but it's an easy drive to town. Our room was spotless and so comfortable, and we enjoyed looking at all the items the owner has collected throughout her travels. The pier is a great place to hang out as well... It was like we were the only people on the island! We will definitely be visiting again! See you soon, Sarah and Danny

awesome place!

Unique B&B - perfect for relaxing

4.0 on July 03, 2014

If you are looking for a quiet setting with a romantic view of the water, this is the perfect place. The house has a historic look, yet is really quite modern. Your Hostess (provided she is not on one of her frequent international trips) will provide charming company for breakfast and is certainly very knowledgable about almost any corner of the world. The city of Beaulieu, the beach and several places to dine are within easy reach by car. Overall, definitely a recommendable place for a few days of relaxing!
