Eat Sleep Play Beaufort 2017 Fall Getaway to Beaufort Contest Winners

Our 2017 Fall Getaway to Beaufort winners, RaeJean & John Slusher from Lexington, Kentucky. Submitted photo.

After pouring through over a few thousand entries and after much deliberation, the winner of our annual Fall Getaway to Beaufort Contest is….RaeJean Slusher of Cynthiana, Kentucky, which is near Lexington.

Every story that was submitted was a good one with folks expressing their desire to visit Beaufort and enjoy its many amenities.

Here is the winning story, straight from RaeJean’s entry submission:

“My husband John and I love Beaufort and the sea islands. We are from Kentucky and only discovered the area 6 years ago. We save our vacation time every year to visit your slice of paradise. Last year, we saved vacation time from work all year to accommodate 2 weeks in the Lowcountry and were very happy to have that long to spend in Beaufort.”fallgetaway2017

“Hurricane Matthew ran us home. After only 3 of our 12 days in town we left due to the mandatory evacuation and have not been able to make it back since.”

“We decided to give it a go again this year and were just notified our accommodations on Fripp are likely not going to be ready, due to Irma”

“We are aching for a fall getaway to Beaufort. Hoping this is the ticket. Thank you”

Thank YOU RaeJean. We know that both you and John will enjoy your weekend in Beaufort.

Super thanks to the awesome folks at The Beaufort Inn for their sponsorship, and to the folks at Breakwater Restaurant and Saltus River Grill for their participation as well as the folks from Southurn Rose Buggy Tours.

We’re looking very forward to meeting RaeJean & John when they arrive.
