Great! Quaint property in the center of historic district. Everything is within easy walking distance. Great weekend getaway. BW staff is wonderful and little Beaufort, SC is a picture book of history, Horse and Buggy is right across the street. Property is right on the waterfront.

The first was that it was recommended in several facebook groups for Marine Moms, the second they gave a discount if you were there for a USMC graduation. Third, they were in a great location, I wanted to be...

We chose this Inn based on reviews and were not disappointed. The young lady at the check in desk both evenings was extremely helpful and courteous...probably the sweetest we have ever seen in many years of travel. The location was perfect for a leisure walk along the waterfront or leisurely stroll through town. Restaurants were lovely. Overall a wonderful experience...

The room was well maintained and the beds are comfy. The hotel staff was super. They gave us a packet of information about graduation and had directions for anywhere you wanted to go. Even better, they arranged for a late checkout so my Marine could take her first long hot shower in 3 months. They are very sensitive to their...

We were passing through on a trip from New England to southern Florida. Last minute booking and it was just right. Within walking distance to the water and downtown restaurants. Comfortable room and a surprisingly nice little breakfast.
