Recent Beaufort reviews

  • PERFECT!

    "My profession has taken me around the world. On my travels I have lived in luxury, such as the Ritz situated at Red Square in Moscow. This cottage (house) was the best by far. It is breath taking when you walk through the front door. The décor is perfect and comfort is uncompromised. The location is a mere hop to local attractions and a short 15 minute drive to the beach. The owners ensure you know where everything is such as medical services and there is a caretaker who is available for assistance with the property. After a day of romping or strolling come home to your getaway and relax on the deck overlooking the Beaufort river with a cool ice tea or glass of wine. Pinch yourself once in awhile to make sure it's not a dream."

  • Excellent hideaway

    "What an awesome find! Extremely clean and comfortable home for solo travelers or small family. Tastefully decorated for both comfort and functionality. I travel to Beaufort several times a year for work. I have stayed in some not-so-fabulous places but this is not one of them. I will definitely stay here again. Steve and Dana were very accommodating and frequently checked to make sure I had everything I needed. Everything was perfect so no complaints here. Make sure you book a day with Captain Steve for a day of fishing!"

  • Great to Work With!

    "Even though I cannot rate the cottage itself, due to unforeseen circumstances, I can rate the proprietors ~ they were prompt in responding to all queries, provided helpful information about the area whenever asked, and fair in all respects when due to another snow storm in the Northeast our flights were cancelled. My husband and I were greatly disappointed Mother Nature interrupted our vacation plans and sincerely hope we have the opportunity to reschedule in the near future."

  • Sweet little house

    "My husband and I visited Beaufort for the first time this March and found this cute little cottage perfect! I randomly rented through VRBO and couldn't be happier with the outcome! This little house is close to town, where I walked with my dogs every morning... Beautifully kept interior...Erica and her husband have thought of everything you may need and more for a comfortable stay. The information notebook is FULL of facts, directions for anything around the area. Very quiet neighborhood..nice fenced in backyard. Can't wait to return!"

Beaufort Travel Tips

The city of Beaufort, South Carolina, is the second-oldest in the state and was chartered in 1711. It's located on Port Royal Island in the South Carolina Lowcountry and offers visitors breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery and antebellum architecture.

Beaufort Attractions

Approximately 304 acres of Beaufort have been designated as a National Historic Landmark, all located in the downtown historic district. Here you'll find the remnants of the original English colonial settlement. History buffs will want to hang out around downtown Beaufort to learn more about the buildings that still stand and their past. Check out Jon Sharp's Walking History Tour for a look at Old Beaufort.

When you want to visit the beach during your stay in Beaufort, head to Hunting Island State Park. It's the state's most popular park and attracts more than 1 million visitors each year. There are 5 miles of beach as well as thousands of acres of marsh, tidal creeks and maritime forests. Also at the park is the Hunting Island Lighthouse that stands at 170 feet tall and dates back to the 1870s. When you venture to the top, you'll find beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounding areas.

Other types of outdoor recreation in Beaufort include kayaking, boating, cycling and horseback riding. Check out Beaufort Kayak Tours, Abco Fishing Charters, Camelot Farms Equestrian Center, LLC, Eastville Passage & Marine and Lowcountry Bicycles, Inc. for your rental needs.

Things to Do"'

Events: There are several events held in Beaufort each year, all of which are a great source of fun to visitors who are in town. The Gullah Festival is a multi-day celebration of the Gullah heritage, the group of African Americans who lived here in years past and preserved the cultural and linguistic characteristics of their heritage. The festival is held each May and highlights local and regional talents as well as art and history exhibits. The Beaufort Shrimp Festival celebrates the Lowcountry's coastlines, rich history and, of course, plethora of shrimp. When you visit in October, head to Waterfront Park for music, fun and shrimp galore. There's also the blessing of the shrimp fleet, a golf tournament and a 5K run/walk. Taste of Beaufort is a three-day event that celebrates the city's food. The festival also celebrates Earth Day and offers wine tastings, contests and music. The Beaufort Water Festival hosts a beauty pageant, a ball and fishing and golf tournaments.

Golf: Thanks to Beaufort's moderate climate, you can enjoy a round of golf no matter what time of year you visit. There are two courses here for golfers of all skill levels including the Callawassie Island Club and the Dataw Island Club.

Arts and Culture: The art scene is a big part of Beaufort and art galleries and craft shops are found throughout the city. Musicians, actors, authors and jewelry artisans call Beaufort home and much of the local entertainment, such as the Beaufort Orchestra, puts on Gullah-inspired productions at the University of South Carolina Beaufort's Performing Arts Center.
