“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful B&B just over a month after they opened. It was wonderful. Gay and Thomas are the perfect hosts, the rooms are very tastefully done, and it was a great location. We had breakfast at the Inn and it was great to sit around the table and get to know the other guests. I look forward to staying here many times in the future!

Room Tip: I would recommend a suite.

Please treat yourself to a few nights at The Front street Inn. I was travelling solo and was a little lonely and worried about staying at a Inn. I left feeling like family after a hearty warm breakfast each morning and delightful conversation each evening on the porch with a glass of wine. plenty of time to explore this picture perfect town and thank you Thomas and Gay for all the time you spent with me and going above and beyond. I will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms have a special feature. I stayed on the ground floor in the blue room and had the most com...

My boyfriend and took a weekend getaway here, and our stay was fabulous. The location is ideal - right on Front Street and surrounded by shops and restaurants. Thomas and Gay were extremely gracious hosts. The hot breakfast was outstanding. Bed was very comfy. Look forward to staying here again.

This historic B&B was all we expected it to be and more. It was the opening week for Gay and Thomas and even with Hurricane Arthur blowing through the night before our arrival, they welcomed us early and totally prepared. Their warm hospitality made us feel right at home. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, Chris and Ashley did a fabulous job. Sitting on the porch at night right on Front Street was very relaxing and gave us a chance to meet other guests. The Inn is located right in the heart of Beaufort directly across the street from restaurants and shops and in walking distance to everything. We look forward to visiting again soon and would highly recommend this B&B!

We were lucky enough to be referred to The Front Street Inn to be one of their first trial guests. We arrived on a beautiful evening in Beaufort to this stunning Inn. The location is spectacular. The owners are incredibly hospitable and kind; they offered us options of places to eat that night and on their recommendation found a beautiful spot right by the Inlet. Everything had been thought of in our room which was spacious and clean. Our bed was super comfortable and the temperature of the room allowed for a great nights sleep. The bathroom was cleverly designed and very clean (also the towels were the softest EVER). Our only disappointment was not to be seeing this place once it was finished but after seeing the rest of the inn on a quick tour and the plans they had for all the rooms, we are sure this place will be magnificent once completed.

Wonderful ambience and hospitality situated in the perfect location. They say location, location location is what its all about and that is definitely true in this case. Close to the marina and the boats that take you to all the nearby secluded islands. Wonderful food at the restaurants. Live music at the wine bars. Local Arts and crafts galore and fashion shops to keep the women happy whilst the men fish or have a beer. The Front Street Inn felt like a home away from home but on a grander scale. Clean as a whistle and a very comfortable bed in a stunning home. Loved the breezes on the porch of an evening whilst enjoying a glass of wine.
Many Thanks Tony & Gaye
