North Carolinas third oldest town, Beaufort traces its unspoiled
historic past to Indians, whalers, privateers and, more recently, to
sport fishing and vacationing.
With over 100 beautifully restored historic private homes located along
peaceful, tree lined streets and along the waterfront, Beaufort has
maintained its wonderful charm over the centuries.
The Rachel Carson National Estuarine Sanctuary is located across the
waterfront from Beaufort and is home to over 100 different species of
wild birds and a small herd of feral ponies.
Pecan Tree Inn is located one half block from the Beaufort waterfront
and is only a short walk to fine restaurants, shops, the Maritime
Museum, the historical Restoration Grounds and ferries to Rachel Carson
Sanctuary and Shackelford Banks.

"One Beaufort hostelry of special note is the Pecan Tree Inn (116 Queen Street, 252-728-6733). The Pecan Tree is housed in the elegant and historic Franklin Lodge, built around 1866 to serve as a Masonic lodge. It is surely one of the most beautifully decorated and landscaped lodgings you will ever find. For my money, this is the spot for shoreside accommodations in Beaufort...the innkeepers are simply wonderful."
