This a lovely property right in the middle of Beaufort's historic district, within easy walking distance of fine shops and restaurants. There are several buildings separated by courtyards and we were in one the Port Republic cottages, facing the street of that name.

Weather did not cooperate on and off rain but a nice location for a B&B. Nice size rooms with large bathroom. Comfortable bed, good wifi, average breakfast, 2 minute walk to town. Good parking and a nice Main Street to stroll. One minute to historic district and water front.

Unfortunately breakfast is a fiasco. On our first morning they were running out of food a half hour before the service was to end. Second day all went... More

This B&B is excellent. Congenial staff, excellent breakfast. Warm, welcoming lobby. We stayed in one of the cabins, a corner property which had newly been remodeled, at the corner of Scott and Craven. Room was spacious as was the bathroom
