Sometimes, we could all use a little Southern comfort—and we're not talking Alabama Slammer shots. Find it under the towering magnolias, amid the antebellum architecture in Beaufort, South Carolina.

Kick back in laidback Lowcountry-style with an Escape to The Beaufort Inn, a pink-painted mansion in the middle of Beaufort's charming, Spanish-moss-draped historic district. Its lush gardens and stately interiors (think indulgent linens and original artwork) make it easy to see why it landed a spot on Condé Nast Traveler's 2006 Gold List.

Unwind for two nights in a garden cottage room ($287 on Sundays through Thursdays; $329 on Fridays and Saturdays) or one night in a luxury suite ($147) for two.

Some garden cottage rooms feature a private porch or balcony, a king-size bed and sitting area, and a cast-iron soaking tub and rainwater shower; many of the luxury suites feature decorative fireplaces.

Parking and wireless Internet are gratis, as are full breakfasts—with made-to-order omelets, fresh fruit, and pastries—and light afternoon treats. A bottle of wine sets the chilled-out mood as soon as you arrive.

Forget all your cares with a stroll through the lovely Waterfront Park that sits along the Beaufort River, only a block from the inn, and kick back in a porch-style swing. Water views get even more stunning a short drive away at Hunting Island State Park, which features five miles of beaches, thousands of acres of marsh and maritime forest, a tranquil lagoon for kayaking, and a fishing pier (keep an eye out for dolphins).

Back in town, browse the galleries along Bay Street—don't miss the family-owned Rhett Gallery—then stop into The Chocolate Tree for a sweet pick-me-up.

For dinner, settle in at the inn's acclaimed Southern Graces Bistro, where weekend guests staying in a garden cottage room will have a $25 gift card. Here, Lowcountry favorites—she-crab soup with pimento cheese straws; shrimp and grits "sushi"—get an upscale twist from former Iron Chef competitor Christopher Hewitt.

Ready to really put your feet up? Indulge in another Escape perk—a 15-percent discount on treatments like a hot stone massage, exfoliating sugar scrub, or mani/pedi at The Beaufort Day Spa.

Just 70 miles south of Charleston, Beaufort echos its Lowcountry counterpart with a well-preserved historic district, numerous cultural and outdoor options, and a wealth of galleries, boutiques, and restaurants serving Lowcountry fare—this is Southern comfort you'll want to drink up.

  • "Built in 1897, this is the most appealing hotel in Beaufort and the place where whatever movie star happens to be shooting a film in town is likely to stay. The guest rooms, each decorated in brightly colored individual style, are conversation pieces."

    -- Frommer's
