A birthday stay

4.6 on January 19, 2018

A B & B great experience. Hosts and staff were friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and committed to making our stay special. The breakfast and evening hour food were exceptional with tasty food and conversation. The staff prepared a great picnic tote which made a wonderful take home memory. My family so enjoyed their stay, we can hardly wait to do it again.

This was one of the most outstanding places I have ever stayed in anywhere. and that includes years in the travel industry.. Every detail was so thoughtfully planned. The host genial and kind...greeted us as welcome friends and was a font of information. The rooms are immaculate and have to tear yourself away,,,comfort that begs you to "sit here", "read awhile" ",bridge anyone?", "another cup?"....THE place to stay in beautiful Beaufort!!!

Great Anniversary!

My husband and I stayed at the Cuthbert House for our Anniversary. We enjoyed meeting the owners Mr. & Mrs. Binot at the evening wine & cheese. We enjoyed our stay in the room called “the Ballroom”. It was a beautiful and cozy room. The next morning breakfast was amazing. We highly recommend the Cuthbert House!

Wonderful get away

Well situated within Historic Beaufort- walking distance from the waterfront, shops, and restaurants. Ed and Connie make everyone feel welcome and the staff bends over backwards for their guest. Looking forward to my next stay.

Our second stay this year, as wonderful as the first stay

This was our second stay this year as my wife and I decided to come back since we had such a wonderful stay the first time. The Cuthbert House Inn with its wonderful owners and outstanding service staff was superb again! Everything was impeccable and the attention to detail was obvious. Thank you for your outstanding hospitality and we look forward to many more stays.

Incredible Experience!

4.6 on October 20, 2017

My wife, I and our young daughter went this past weekend for a Sat-Mon stay. We stayed in the Mariner room and the pictures online do it NO justice. This room is magnificent, from the decor, the bed and most importantly the view! Although we didn't have breakfast at the inn any of these days, the staff was very helpful and accommodating and I highly recommend this inn to anyone and everyone! It is within walking distance to every restaurant and very convenient to downtown.

Innkeeper Response
We are pleased that you enjoyed the Mariner suite. Each of our rooms is decorated in its own style. Some are more modern, some are more traditionally decorated. All the rooms have modern conveniences and amenities. We appreciate your review.
