Need to get away, but hate to miss out on a single moment of Beaufort’s holiday charm? Now is the perfect time to experience “America’s Best Seaside Inn” according to Coastal Living. Anchorage 1770 is offering staycation rates for Lowcountry locals during the months of December and January. Surprise your special someone with a romantic night away from home or grab a few couples and celebrate the season together.
Whether you are looking for relaxation or adventure, the newly renovated, 247 year old, 15 room boutique waterfront inn located on Bay Street in downtown Beaufort has something for everyone. Enjoy leisurely views from the sprawling upper verandahs, or reawaken your senses and consider adding a yoga experience to your stay. Classes are small and often have only a few guests… talk about personalized attention. Spa massage and beauty treatments using local salts and ingredients, are also available in the privacy of your room. Feel like seeing Beaufort in a new way, use the Inn’s fat-tire bikes for local jaunts or rent road bikes for longer trips. Guest services can help you pick a route and prepare a picnic basket of provisions or make a reservation at a special stopping point.
After a day out on the town, settle in for an evening of cocktails on the porches and dinner in the historic dinning room. Anchorage 1770 has reopened the Ribaut Social Club, a legendary retreat for locals and visitors alike to mingle over cocktails and impeccable regional cuisine. Owners Frank and Amy Lesesne’s aim was to capture the incorrigible spirit and convivial atmosphere of the original Ribaut Club, established at the Anchorage way back in 1891. In its heyday, the Club hosted performances, grand parties, dances and even gambling—a raucous getaway from buttoned-up social strictures of the time.
Need more convincing? We can’t image that you do, but it never hurts to mention that the historic and beautiful Anchorage 1770 Inn has also been named as one of the best accommodations across the South by Southern Living and added to its Southern Living Hotel Collection. With the collection hand picked by its editors, the magazine says, “the Southern Living Hotel Collection is a carefully selected series of the most delightful hotel experiences the South has to offer. From perfectly crafted rooms and restaurants to breathtaking natural surroundings, each of these premier hotel properties captures a charming experience that is both distinctively different yet completely Southern.”
