“What a nice surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

My husband kidnapped me for Valentine's Day and took me to my first B&B! I've done plenty of research on them, but something always got in the way! Beaulieu was worth the wait! From the moment we arrived, we were right at home! The view of the river was magnificent, calming and seductive! The innkeeper, Suzi was a delight and the perfect hostess! There was a happy hour shortly after we arrived where we met some of the other guests and had a beverage of our choice and a few snacks! We thoroughly enjoyed the company and conversation. The inn is located on Cat Island which is a short drive to Beaufort. Our room was very comfortable, spacious and included a jacuzzi. It would have been nice if there was a full blind on one of the windows. Breakfast was wonderful and plentiful with stuffed French toast, fresh tropical fruit, sausage, bacon and scones. The B&B was filled with many treasures of the owner which may be too much for some guests. We ran out of time and didn't get to ride the bicycle built for two, but that will give us something to do when we visit again, hopefully soon!

I spent the holidays at this B&B and loved everything about it, except the clutter of the owner's collections. The rooms are large, the food delicious, the water views breathtaking and the hostess, Suzi, offers the most amazing hospitality - she seems to love her job and truly enjoys serving her guests.
I highly recommend this B&B over staying in town Beaufort because of the proximity to Hunting Island and the historical Sea Islands. The drive into Beaufort is short and easy.

I just saw the coupon to stay 3 nights and get the third night free. I wish I would have seen this or someone would have mentioned it to me, since I was there 3 nights. I did receive a discount, but not as much as a free night's lodging.

Room Tip: All are lovely...

The Inn sitter for this establishment was very kind and cooked an excellent breakfast. The outdoor area is pretty. I'd prefer that the inside not be so cluttered with a doll collection and that there be fewer small signs posted around the room. 2 thumbs up to the inn sitter, the house was okay.

We lucked out when we found Beaulieu House on Tripadvisor. Lovely home, beautiful location, thoughtful hostess, great food, sweet dog...what more can you ask for? From our large immaculate room to the restful patio overlooking the water to our fellow travelers, our stay was A1. Diann is an interesting, well-traveled hostess and we so enjoyed our conversations with her and the other guests. Thanks Diann...we look forward to another visit.

We had another great visit at Beaulieu House with Diann & Jezebel. We like it because it is pet friendly and the view from Room 3 (especially lying in the hammock) is awesome!

Diann is a great cook and wonderful hostess. She has some of the most interesting travel experiences. We try to make this a regular part of our vacation plans each year.

Room Tip: Room 3 - when we aren't staying there!

I love this place! The water, the home, Diann the owner! All is Wonderful! I can't say enough! We stayed the weekend and it was wonderful! I recommend the Water view room with the hammock! The room was very comfortableand Clean too! The cocktails on the porch Diann provided were wonderful! Fresh fruit every morning! I enjoyed just staying there and not going anywhere! We also brought our small dog where he was welcomed as well. She even made dinner for us as a special treat! All you need to do is ask, Diann will be happy to help you in any way she can! If you have small children you may want to use the pool, or go into beaufort for other activities. My son (4) seemed happy just hanging out in the hammock and running around the grounds. Thanks so much for a GREAT WEEKEND! We will definately be back!

Room Tip: All rooms are well appointed, it just depends on what view you would like. I loved the water view w...

We just cannot say enough about lovely Beaulieu House! Right when we arrived our breath was taken away when we saw the view of the inlet!!! Our room was so cozy and charming and we were so happy to have a Jacuzzi in the bathroom! The house décor was really unique and we loved checking out everything--the gorgeous doll collection, the antiques, the nostalgic trolls all lined up smiling at us! I loved the way the rooms are painted in such cheerful bright colors!
The hospitality was wonderful and so were the delicious breakfasts! We will definitely return to Beau-tiful Beaulieu House!!!
