circa 1730’s w/additions in the 1790’s, 1860’s, 1920’s
Welcome to the Langdon House
…more than just a place to hang your hat
A Golden Opportunity to…
Sit back, relax wrapped in the history of this old home then, let us take care of you.
The ballast stones in the home’s foundation came to Beaufort, aboard some of the first trade ships between the new world and England; in a sense the oldest part of the home rests on British “soil”.
Benjamin Franklin published “Poor Richard’s Almanac” in 1732. Shortly thereafter, the initial house was built. Additions came in the 1790’s, 1860’s (following the War of Northern Aggression), and again in the 1920’s.
Furnished with an eclectic collection of antiques, there is a sense of the late-18th / early- 19th centuries. Each of the five guests rooms has a queen-sized bed, private bath, room temperature control, and mini-refrigerator. It is also our home, hence,
we have an amenity for almost any need.
The “Master Guest Room”, our best, is secluded on the second floor and begs to be your hideaway with its sunlit Master Bath and 4 X 6 jetted tub where two can float side-by-side.
Areas for all the guests include the first floor parlor/dining area, lower porch, loaded with rockers and “Adirondak” chairs, and the exterior country style gardens. Our property provides off street parking for up to five guest vehicles, one per room.
135 Craven Street
in the “heart” of the historic district.
On the corner of Craven & Ann streets,
across from the old graveyard
and the Ann Street Methodist Church.
One short-short block from the waterfront’s
salt air breezes, marsh ponies, breathtaking
sunsets; restaurants and shops, services.
What really sets us apart is the commitment and passion with which we practice the art of innkeeping, our commitment to the well-being of each guest, and our efforts to provide a B&B with a genuine sense of heart and soul.
Lizzet Prest/Langdon House Testimonial
Langdon House B & B is a quaintly unique, deeply historical, gorgeously distinctive home with incredible hospitality. There are the comfortable rooms; there are the front porches for sitting and rocking; there are the delicious breakfasts (Belgian waffles are superlative), but everything begins and ends with Lizzet. She has been 17 years in this business, is an informative, kind, generous and lovely hostess for your stay and few folks can serve your needs with the kind of graciousness that she offers. We were able to stay in the “spa” suite on the second floor: book that if you can. The house is located one block away from the touristy busyness of the waterfront. In this sense, it offers a quiet time to be at rest, to be reflective and to at ease during your time in Beaufort. In our view, that suits Beaufort perfectly, laid back and attuned to its history and its innate beauty. This why we have always returned to Beaufort and to Langdon House. There is a serenity that heals our weary souls. And Langdon House is one of its sanctuaries. And that is why Lizzet remains there: to offer you her exquisite space — her home –her presence and her self.
