We are so excited about the new Anchorage 1770 in Beaufort, South Carolina. Built in 1770, it will be officially open for business May 1.
Former Atlanta residents Amy and Frank Lessene have restored the waterfront building to its glory, and it is spectacular. With 15 guest rooms and more than 1,500 square feet of porches, the inn provides a gracious stay in one of our favorite Lowcountry destinations.
In the course of its history, the building served as a private home, a Civil War hospital, and a hotel. Nearly demolished in the early 70s, the Lessenes have done a complete restoration. Beaufort native Cooter Ramsey served as the architect on the project, and Michelle Prentis managed the interior design.
Among the features: a rooftop bar for visitors and locals to gather, Carolina hanging beds on the porches, and rooms with unobstructed views of Beaufort’s downtown marina.
