March in Beaufort

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed staying in this fully restored historical home. The location was convient to downtown shopping, dining and morning or evening walks. We found the front porch and barbecue grill an added bonus. The only negative was the seating in the living room. The couch in the living room was uncomfortable. In addition, the owner provided a pass to the state park that is about thirty minutes from Beaufort. The state park offers beautiful scenery and a great ocean view.

Clean and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly what was advertised. It was clean and cozy and was close to town. We went to visit our son which is stationed at the Marine Air Station in Beaufort. We also brought his new bride along for a visit. The home gave each of us our own privacy. The area was very quiet and peaceful and had everything we needed. It was a very good week long visit. We would recommend this home for anyone looking for a quiet nice stay in Beaufort. It beats a hotel stay by far.

Historic charm in convenient location!

  • 4 of 5

First stay for us in Beaufort, which is a fantastic town. Loved it! This cottage is in the historic district with mixed use buildings--mostly residential, but, some Lawyers, the local Health Department, churches, etc. Neighborhood is mostly quiet but lots of military aircraft flying over at certain times, cottage is walking distance to the water and all the downtown shops and restaurants. Wonderful historic markers and historic houses to visit, etc., many in neighborhood. Added plus is that there were at least 3 dog parks within a few blocks to this cottage, which was fantastic for our dog Sam. We loved the fenced yard as well. Very walkable, dog friendly town, most shops and restaurants had water dishes out for dogs. (Dogs had to stay outside at outdoor seating- where allowed of course). The house has a nice screened front porch with ceiling fans but owners do allow smoking on porches and back yard-which we don't like- and there were dead cigars and nasty cigarette butts left in the sand ash trays (ick). We are both allergic to tobacco. But, once we cleaned those up, it was ok. At least we couldn't smell tobacco afterward and there wasn't any smoke smell inside the house-thankfully! The house is historic so the rooms are smaller. We loved the cozy feel and original features of the house. We are thrilled that the owners restored this sweet little place. They did a good job too. An addition to the back of the house was used for making a new kitchen with eat in area, new bathroom and area for stacked washer/dyer. The master bedroom had a good sized en-suite bath with tiled walk in shower. Newer appliances in the kitchen and basic utensils. Nicely decorated throughout. If you plan on cooking something that requires a large casserole dish, pizza pan, etc., bring it with you! Most people likely just eat out, but if you like to cook note there's limited cooking pots and pans in the kitchen. Parking is off the street right in front and as owners note, room for 2 cars only. The two of us plus Sam, our dog, were very comfortable in the house. We loved the Pass to get into Hunting Island State Park provided by the owners. The Island sustained lots of damage during the last hurricane and much of the park is still closed, but, we went to the light house and beach one day and it is a beautiful place. Worth friendly, nice folks working there, etc. We definitely will be going back to Beaufort soon!

We stayed two nights due to my son graduating from Parris Island. Very convenient to Parris Island .

  • 5 of 5

The picture doesn’t do this house justice. It is very nice and plenty of room for 7 people. Great location to Parris Island and restaurants. The porch is really relaxing and roomy. I really felt at home here.Limited parking, however there is parking across the street. I would highly recommend this house. Thank you again for allowing us to be apart of your home.
