Beaufort Hotel, NC

The Gem of the Crystal Coast

Overlooking the serene waters of Taylor Creek, the Beaufort Hotel welcomes those who arrive at its doors into a haven of relaxed comfort. Ten acres of prized waterfront, indulgent guest rooms, and an easygoing resort-style setting make it the perfect place to stop and savor the coast—in all of its forms. That means strolling the waterfront in Beaufort’s historic district, embarking on a day trip out to Shackleford Banks, or simply stealing a rocking chair on the porch and enjoying a front row seat to the sunset.

Anchored in Local Lore

The grounds of the Beaufort Hotel were once home to a year-round fishery for menhaden, otherwise known as "The Fish That Built Beaufort." Today, we may not fish as much—but we make sure to carefully preserve the legacy of the land and town we're honored to be a part of.

Best hotel in the area!

“The hotel and valet experience was amazing. Janie from valet was very personable and recommended seeing the sunset on the second floor veranda which made the experience once in a lifetime. There was not a single employee at the hotel that didn’t provide a warm and friendly greeting anytime you walk in. We will 100% be going back. Thank you to all who made the experience wonderful. ”

A Community Shaped by the Water

Once a thriving seaport and fishing town, Beaufort has always been shaped by its connection to the water. Our location overlooking the tranquil waters of Taylor Creek is a scenic bike ride away from Beaufort’s storied Historic District, and just a boat ride away from other major attractions like the Rachel Carson Reserve, Cape Lookout, and Shackleford Banks.
