We drove our Harley Trike to visit the wayside site of Pat Conroy fame. We chose the Cuthbert House Inn randomly and found our perfect nesting place. Our room, the Costal suite, was roomy and comfortable with a private inference. The new owners, Pierre Edward and Connie Binot had only been the owners for one week,

Capped off an extended Mother-Daughter weekend visiting the South Carolina coast with a stay in the Coastal Suite at the Cuthbert House Inn. Pictures online didn't do the suite justice. Large, spacious suite with eating area, nice mini kitchen compete with microwave, toaster oven, mini fridge and Keurig coffee maker. We enjoyed a spa like bathroom and the provided robes. The coastal suite sits on the side of the house that's perfect for watching sunsets. We enjoyed meeting the new owner of only 2 days during cocktail hour and enjoyed his recommendation of Dockside for seafood for dinner. Wish we could have stayed more than one night. We'll be back!

Great way to see Beaufort

We had a wonderful time at the Cuthbert House. We were only there for one night, but were instantly astounded by the service we received (especially from Wesley). The house is beautiful and historical, with great views and an unbeatable location. The rooms are equally attractive, and the shower in ours (the Oaks) was the best I've used on any vacation. Our only suggestions going forward were more ways to keep the room dim. More choices for breakfast would also be appreciated, though what we had was pretty tasty, I would have preferred something else.

Wonderful stay in Beaufort!

We found The Cuthbert House online and where very pleased with it. It's not easy finding dog friendly places. The rooms we had were very nice! Location and view was perfect. Breakfast was excellent! Everyone was so friendly, you felt like you were staying with a group of friends not strangers (both staff and other guests).

Three time visitor!

More than the average B&B! The staff were friendly and very accommodating. We stayed in the hideaway room. The king bed was so comfortable. The decor relaxing. The bathroom was impressive. Beautiful walk in shower. We loved sitting on the veranda overlooking the the marsh and moored sailboats. The Inn is located a block from the restaurants and shops. I can't wait to go back!
