“Lovely stay at the Rhett House Inn.”
Reviewed 13 April 2011

Enjoyed our stay at the Rhett House Inn. We were in the Innkeeper's Room and felt the private screen porch was relaxing. Staff very pleasant. We recommend Wren and Saltus RIver Grill as dining options.

We had a wonderful 2-day stay in Beaufort, a hidden gem of a southern city. Our stay was made superb because we chose the Rhett House Inn. You will feel like you have stepped back in time but with all the modern comforts like a great bed and flat-screen TV. The staff treats you like family. Enjoy a great southern breakfast on the veranda. If your room is upstairs, you will have your own second-floor veranda to relax in the afternoon with cookies and lemonade or sweet tea. AND, there is desert in the kitchen after dinnner so be sure and leave some room for a wonderful selection of sweets.

Room Tip: We loved room 4.

I really enjoyed everything about this visit. Beaufort was a charming coastal town, and the staff at The Rhett House Inn made my time there amazing. I stayed in one of the rooms across the street from the main inn and it was well appointed and luxurious. I will definitely return soon.

We stayed at the Rhett House Inn for two nights in mid March. We opted for a package which included a carriage tour and a picnic lunch, in addition to the standard breakfast, afternoon refreshments and desserts. It was a great deal, and the picnic lunch came in a nice basket and included a bottle of wine as well as water and tea. Sandwiches were great! The staff recommended local restaurants and the owner Steve told us all about the town and its history, especially the movie-making events. Our first night was frigid, as the thermostat for the air conditioner was in the hallway outside our room and kept the air on all night as the hall did not get cool enough to shut down the air. We remedied that for the second night. All in all, a great place to stay.

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous 5 night stay at the Rhett House Inn. We stayed in one of the cottages. The king size bed was very comfortable and the linens were luxurious. The gas fireplace in the room worked beautifully and made the room feel cozy and romantic. I used the jet tub in the bathroom twice and it provided instant relief after walking all day around Beaufort and surrounding areas. There was so much to do and see! Great restaurants as well. But nothing could beat the delicious breakfasts that were prepared from scratch for the guests each morning at the Rhett House Inn. The eggs, french toast, blueberry pancakes and grits were exceptional. The breakfast is included in the room rate and is served by a most gracious wait staff. They also serve complimentary cookies and tea and lemonade throughout the day, a cheese tray in the late afternoon and they top of the evening with made from scratch pies and cakes for the guests to enjoy. We made it a point to have a piece of pie or cake every night of our stay as it gave us an opportunity to mingle with other guests. What a treat and the desserts were delicious. The Rhett House Inn staff are well trained and very accommodating. They assisted us with information on things to do and places to eat in Beaufort, Charleston, and surrounding areas as well. Beaufort is centrally located so that you can visit Savannah one day, and Charleston the next if you choose to. Beaufort became our base of operation and The Rhett House Inn made it so easy and delightful to do so. We had the opportunity to meet the owners of the inn during our stay. They were charming and hospitable. You can tell they take pride in running a top notch bed and breakfast. That is why the inn is a 4 star AAA rated inn. One last note, the inn offers bikes, chairs and towels for your use, complimentary of course, and complimentary access to a club for pool and golf use. What else could you ask for.? My husband I look forward to staying at The Rhett House Inn again so that we can continue to experience more of the lovely South Carolina sights and the inn's outstanding southern hospitality.

Southern hospitality at it's best. Lovely antebellum house. Delicious breakfasts. When we arrived there we were treated to cookies, iced tea and lemonade. Later in the afternoon fruit and cheese was served. When we arrived back at the house after dinner we were treated to delicious desserts. The staff was very attentive to all of our needs.

First of all I would like to say how wonderful the staff was. We enjoyed our complimentary dessert in the evening in the main house and had a very entertaining and informative chat with the staff. We also loved the breakfast in the dining room and again the service was amazing. We stayed in the cottage which is right across the street from the main house. We really appreciated the free parking right outside our cottage after the expensive valet parking at other hotels on our trip. The bedroom was nice and the bed was very comfortable, but our only complaint was the bathroom. We understand that the inn was renovated in the 80's and in our bathroom you could tell that it hadnt been touched since! I wish they would redo the bathrooms and perhaps change the room decor (less flowery and perhaps a more neutral look?). If this happened then I would defintely recommend this as the place to stay in Beaufort! Thanks for the stay...
