Al and Lana Hefner's first major undertaking after locating in Atlanta, Georgia was the founding of Hefner Productions, a design studio specializing in corporate graphic design, multi media, and new product development. Twelve years later they retired from all that and moved to Beaufort. Here they established Bay St. Gallery and began to renovate historic property. ArtLofts is one of their restoration projects. Their approach is to retain the original character of the architecture, while introducing modern conveniences and luxuries.

Cute well appointed apartment with southern charm.
Had a great stay in this bright and airy apartment. Right in town with easy access to restaurants, shopping and the river front. A lovely getaway.
Perfect location. Beautiful city!
Not happy with the stay....
Wow, where to begin. I'll start with the positive; nice space, unique, and great location for adventuring around downtown Beaufort. Oh, and clean linens.
Unfortunately, we had the following issues: They were using a jackhammer on the space below us (very loud, you can see light through the floors) everyday all three days starting at 9:00am...even on Sunday. Half the power was out in 1/3 of the loft, luckily found breaker. The floors where so dirty, all of our feet and socks literally turned black. Had to call housekeeping who did respond and mop all the floors for us the second day. The alarm system kept chirping, no instructions how to disable. Door lock kept malfunctioning, stood outside for 10 minutes one evening trying to get it to work. The washing machine did not work, water not connected.
The frustrating part to all this, I tried to call and email the manage and the owner and they have yet to return ANY of my communications regarding my frustrations. Not acceptable. The only responsive individuals was the owners son and housekeeping, but they could only do so much. If your the owner of a place and have a disgruntled renter, you respond and offer to help in any way, period. Try harder.
Since the owners were temporarily out of the country, they had made sure that a manager, the owners' son (architect), the house keeper, and the contractor who was handling some improvements to the building all responded to these visitors (which they did). The housekeeper recleaned and reported that the complaints were not true and that the visitors later told her that the apartment had indeed been clean.
And importantly, there was NO work going on on Sat and Sun.
It is a sad fact that this visitor's inaccurate
comments may be damaging the otherwise pristine reputation enjoyed by this property. And to what end?
Great Weekend At ArtLofts
ArtLofts was really a perfect spot for our family get together. It is conveniently located in the heart of the historic district, which is exactly what we were looking for. The loft is furnished very tastefully and the beds are quite comfortable. I would certainly go back again.
Very clean. Excellent atmosphere for friends & family to spend time together.
Very nice, clean, & lots of room. Great location for a walking tour of the historic area.
The loft is spacious yet cozy, tastefully appointed, and conveniently located. We couldn't have been more pleased.
