Room with a view

4.0 on April 21, 2018

It's all about the view at this B&B, and we loved that. But it was also a fun place to stay because of the on-site manager, Tommy, and all the interesting (though sometimes a bit too cluttered looking) things to see.

Great views and fun house

Views at Beaulieu Houses can't be beat. The on-site manager, Tommy, was fun and always available. This B&B is worth the trip.

Just what we needed!

My husband and I were looking for a weekend getaway not too far from home. We wanted peace, beautiful, scenery and a memorable experience. We found all of this and more at Beaulieu House. Our hostess Diane was warm and welcoming as well as a fascinating person. Cleanliness and coziness are important to me and I loved the "cottagey" mix and match linens. Breakfasts were tasty and we enjoyed the table conversation with our hosts and fellow travelers...great! Cat Island is lovely and situated close to downtown Beaufort for some wonderful dining. Mostly we relaxed and were inspired by the scenery to do some writing.

Fun two nights

Low Country Lovely!

We had two rooms for the duration of our visit, both were lovely and comfortable. It was Marine Graduation Week for our son, so we were running back & forth to Parris Island quite a bit. The trips there and back went quickly, most 10 minutes and under. The Inn breakfasts were delicious. Karuth & Jim, the inn-sitters, were awesome. We had a few special requests that they accommodated graciously. One evening Karuth made a scratch cake of pecans and other yumminess and shared with the guests. What a treat! I would definitely recommend to others and book again. The 4 star for the room was because the desk lamp didn't work, and it takes a bit of finagling to get the toilet not to run. Very minor items. I did not report them to the inn-sitters, because it didn't bother me that much. I'm easy to get along with : ) Thanks for a pleasurable stay!

So beautiful!

relaxing water views

We needed a quite and relaxing place for a few days and that is what we got. The inn sits on a beautiful location on the inlet water way of Beaufort. It was quite and peaceful for afternoon sitting to just relax or talking with new friends. If you like a lived in type bed and breakfast this is what you are looking for. The décor is not stuffy but due to the owners passion for collecting very interesting things there is lots to see and everything is interesting. We enjoyed the owner and stories she told.

The Inn sits on what is called a river ( more like a unspoiled salt water bay) with constant refreshing breezes blowing around you. The great, old live oaks and 5 different varieties of palms ....with the abundant wildlife, makes for a wonderful experience !

The Best Bed and Breakfast Ever!!

My stay at this Bed and Breakfast was Awesome! I felt I was at home! My family had a home cooked breakfast, sat at the table with the owner as it was a family breakfast! Our table over looked the Beautiful water as the sun was rising, What a site and relaxing feeling! We sat in the living room as a family with the owner and felt like home! Everything was to our expectations and more! Thank you a million! Miss it already!!
