Come enjoy Beaufort, SC!

Beaufort SC prices can be 1/3 less for comparable hotel and restaurant meals than expensive next-door sister cities Charleston and Savannah.  Because of that, savvy travelers are now using Beaufort as a base and do day trips to Savannah (40 min. away) and Charleston (1 hr. 15), plus you don’t have to move your bags around as much checking in and out.  Also golf guests at the Rhett house have exclusive access to three championship private golf clubs both in town and within a 30 min drive-The Sanctuary, Dataw, and Palmetto Bluff, instead of having to stay at just one location and the course there.
