““We attended a wedding on May 3 and were blown away by the service staff. The food and drinks were great, but the servers went above and beyond to make each guest feel special. Every staff member we encountered was deeply personal, kind, and attentive. The wedding was a showstopper, but no one could have anticipated having such an amazing staff." ”

“"I grew up in Beaufort, NC and always had the vision that I would return and get married in my hometown. The Beaufort Hotel was a dream, and our wedding was stunningly beautiful! We were even lucky enough to have the wild horses make an appearance during our cocktail hour (talk about lucky!!)! Bridget, Amanda, ownership, the banquet staff, and everyone involved were so thoughtful, kind, accommodating, and great to work with. They brought our vision to life with a smile, and for that we are so grateful. They truly cared about making our day special! I highly recommend getting married at this storybook venue!" ”

“My husband and I fell in love with the venue when we came to have cocktails one summer on vacation. I knew the moment I walked in that we would one day get married here. Bridget is fabulous! She is very responsive with all communication and spent a lot of time with me during the entire process. If you want a beautiful venue with great food and drinks do not look anywhere else. We were beyond grateful and so blessed to have our wedding at The Beaufort Hotel. ”

“I cannot say enough good things about the Beaufort Hotel for making my wedding daydreams come true. I can honestly say they are the best folks to work with during such a stressful time! Communication was timely, I could go to them with any questions or concerns. They worked to make the day exactly how we wanted it and it was just that. The entire venue, ceremony and reception areas are impeccable. Service was top notch and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend it to any newly engaged couples looking for a venue!”

“The Beaufort Hotel is not only a breathtakingly beautiful place to get married (rain or shine) but the staff and coordinators made everything so seamless. From the planning to the day of they were so attentive and quick to respond. On the day of the wedding the staff was so efficient, and our guests raved about the amazing food and how it came out hot and cooked to perfection. The Beaufort Hotel is a top notch one stop shop wedding venue and the fact that they have the hotel and restaurant, and multiple event spaces makes all your event possible without ever having to leave the property. 10 stars, highly recommend, you will not be disappointed if you choose to have your wedding here.”

“My husband and I knew from the moment we saw The Beaufort Hotel that it was the perfect location for our wedding. From our rehearsal dinner in the Marlin Room to our ceremony in the pavilion and reception in the ballroom - it was an absolute dream. Our guests could not stop talking about how much they loved the location! Bridget and her team were beyond amazing to work with. They were extremely responsive and so patient with all of our questions leading up to the wedding weekend. Choosing The Beaufort Hotel was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!”

“The Beaufort Hotel looked like something straight out of a fairy tale for our December 29th wedding. From the moment we met with Bridget and Amanda everything was easy and organized. They allowed us to step outside the box and create the wedding of our dreams in a very short timeframe. Everything was doable. The food was amazing, and the staff couldn't have been more wonderful. We had over 50 guests come from out of town and stay and everyone had a positive experience, and many can't wait to come back. The pictures we have, and the memories created here will stay with us for a lifetime. We will go back often! You will not go wrong if you pick to celebrate your special day here!”

“I don’t even know where to begin with how absolutely amazing the Beaufort Hotel is. Everything from the attentive staff, delicious foods and beautiful location- you come to them with the vision, and they bring it to life. What sets them apart is not just the beautiful scenery but how they make you feel like a part of the Beaufort Hotel family- they go above and beyond to ensure that everything is perfect. We had our rehearsal dinner and wedding ceremony/reception there on the grounds and it was everything we dreamed of. The versatility of the property makes it so anyone’s vision can be brought to life and the food varieties can please any pallet! We could go on and on - 10000x recommend the Beaufort Hotel!”
