If you prefer a true bed and breakfast, the Rhett House Inn is your best bet.

Slung to the side of downtown is the Old Point neighborhood, with dozens of particularly grand historic homes decked in the Federal, Neo-Classical, and Greek Revival architectural styles of the eras they were built in. It was inhabited by Native Americans long before that, and historical sites marking events and activities of these early groups are scattered across the area.In addition to the beautiful music performed by acclaimed visiting organists, the concerts are a great excuse to stroll the few blocks off Bay Street and explore the sanctuary and grounds of one of the oldest active churches in North America, with a congregation founded all the way back in 1712.The Beaufort International Film Festival takes place every February, where festival-goers get unprecedented access to Hollywood insiders and passionate filmmakers.City Loft Hotel is one of the newest hotels available downtown, a complete renovation of an old 1950s motel just off Bay Street.The rooms are sleek and sophisticated, and the building also houses both the simple but complete City Fit gym (personal training sessions can be booked through the hotel) as well as the always-buzzing City Java & News cafe, where you can grab all manner of drinks and snacks throughout the day, whether you are staying at the hotel or just passing by.
