Cuthbert House Inn Review

Named after the original Scottish owners, who made their money in cotton and indigo, this 1790 home is filled with 18th- and 19th-century heirlooms and retains the original Federal fireplaces and crown and rope molding. When Beaufort was occupied by the Union army during the Civil War, this home was used as the generals' headquarters. Guest rooms and oversize suites have endearing architectural details, made comfortable with hand-knotted rugs on the pine floors and commanding beds piled high with quilts. Choose one that looks out on the bay and the glorious sunset. The Mariner's Suite has a veranda, too. Beautifully lit at night, this antebellum house, with white pillars and dual verandas, typifies the Old South.
