A classic beauty, The Cuthbert House Inn, a Beaufort, South Carolina bed and breakfast, began its history over two centuries ago, when it was built as a healthful retreat from the rigors of plantation life. Today, where the gentleman and ladies of the Old South once came to relax and appreciate the bay breezes, discerning guests enjoy the refreshing combination of natural beauty, elegant architecture and personal attention.
The Cuthbert family, successful indigo and cotton planters, built their fine Federal style house in 1790 on our warm and breezy island. To the classical style they added an elegance and airy spaciousness, the legacy of their West Indies migration from Scotland.
Our house served Cuthbert family descendants until captured along with all of Beaufort, SC by Union (Yankee) forces in November 1861. Let us help you trace General William T. Sherman's march through the Confederacy including his stay at the house his Aide-de-camp described as "General Saxton's fine double house on Bay Street" - now The Cuthbert House Inn.
