We had a wonderful time in Beaufort. The cottage was fully equipped and very clean. Loved being in walking distance of the waterfront. So much to do and see that we will definitely have to come back. Everyone we met was so friendly. The owner Deborah was very informative and had a binder with very helpful information when we arrived. I recommend going to Shackleford Island, NC Maritime Museum, NC Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores and Fort Macon. We ate at Clawson's, Skipperz, El's Drive in, and Rucker John's. They were all great!
