Oct 3-5th, 2012 we stayed in room #3 at the Beaulieu house. What a lovely setting at the end of the road overlooking the water. Very quiet and peaceful...great place to take your bikes and ride around. If you are a photographer the birds gather at night in the trees behind a nearby golf club. Deer everywhere along the roads and in yards in the evenings (careful driving!). Diann is a great hostess. Her home is filled with all sorts of original art and collectibles. The inn is also within easy driving to Port Royal (Dockside is a great place to eat!) with a few stores to brose and a nice little walking trail (near the firestation) that goes around a cypress swamp. We took the walk about 5:30 and noticed that the herons and other shore birds were flying in there. Within an hour or so there were at least a thousand or more birds perching in the trees in the center. It is also about 20 minutes from Hunting Island State Park....awesome beach in it's natural, undeveloped state. Breakfasts were very tasty and filling...made fresh by Diann. Our room comfortable and homey....with a balcony to enjoy the views of the sunrise. A keeper on our list of great places to stay.
