Privacy is equivalent to what you would have in a multi-room Bed and Breakfast where the rooms have a common hallway. If you are looking for a secluded, isolated and completely private place strictly looking for a romantic getaway, this space is probably not for you. If however, you are looking for a private space with amenities and are here to explore this beautiful area, this is a terrific place. Read the reviews as we have been have been doing this for 18 months now. We respect your privacy and also welcome interacting with guests as much or as little as they like! We know lots about local attractions, restaurants and all the beaches and waterways of this huge county. We love opening our home up to guests and many return often. If you have any questions about the space or anything else, just e-mail me. We DO NOT do this strictly for the income or the money-we do it because the people who have stayed here have been so wonderful!!

About David L. Spence

My name is David Spence. I grew up in Charlotte and attended Wake Forest University Law School. I have lived and worked in Beaufort since March of 2000 and just bought this lovely home in July 2016. I am an Assistant District Attorney and have done that for 25 years. I love all water activities, playing music, building custom fishing rods and wood-turning on the lathe. I love Beaufort and want you to love it also!

David L. Spence purchased this apartment in 2016

Why David L. Spence chose Beaufort

This house is one block from my work and I fell in love with it the first moment I walked in. It was completely renovated in 2008 and immaculately furnished. The back deck and yard will undergo a complete transformation this winter, making it an outside space that can be enjoyed 10 months of the year.

cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

A cozy and comfortable bedroom and sitting area with wide screen TV. Kitchen was a little tight with space, not great for cooking meals. Easy walk to downtown Beauford, restaurants and shops.

David is a terrific host and the apartment was fine.

  • 3 of 5

It is just fine accommodations wise. It is old and in need of a paint job but that was no real problem. The location is great. The large flaw is you can hear absolutely everything from David's house which is part of the apartment. You can hear a cough, the gas stove being lit, everything. If privacy is not needed this is a fine place to stay.

Awesome and cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little getaway. The guest quarters were perfect. The living arrangements were great and the rear deck was very beautiful (we look forward to relaxing out there in the spring) David and Summer were the perfect host. Our babies (fur babies) gave them a four paws award. They didn't just welcome our babies but treated them like family. We look forward to future visits with our newly made friends.

Visitors who want to take in the town and learn all the stories behind the homes and sites that comprise the Beaufort Historic District can easily do so via an in-depth tour. A number of historical tours are available through multiple vendors, which can include walking tours, bike tours, boat tours, and even themed expeditions like evening ghost tours. Stop by a local visitors’ center or take a stroll along the docks where multiple tour vendors set up temporary shop in the summer months to learn all about the options available.

Another good starting point for learning more about the ancient homes and sites within the Beaufort Historic District is the Beaufort Historical Association. Located within the primary Beaufort Historic Site building, this local organization can point new visitors on the right path when it comes to a self-guided exploration. In addition, visitors can take the opportunity to discover the unique structures within the Beaufort Historic Site itself, or can book a town-wide tour in an authentic English double decker bus.

There are also a number of resources for exploring that are available online. The Town of Beaufort’s Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is a seven member panel whose goal is to identify, protect, and help preserve the historic architectural resources - and the historical setting - of Beaufort. They have a nicely detailed flier which outlines the criteria for a home that meets the Historic District designation, which is found here, and the HFC is a solid resource for homeowners and new owners who want to see if their home meets the requirements for being named a historical addition to the town’s landscape.

But, for the most part, visitors who want to casually explore the Beaufort Historic District will simply want to step outside and go for a stroll. Start with Front Street, which hugs the borders of Taylor’s Creek, and then wind through the 12-block downtown area to discover a collection of architectural treasures. Visitors will want to keep an eye out for small signs and plaques that indicate a home or property of significance, as well as the NC Historical Markers which are found throughout this centuries-old community.
