The Rhett House Inn
Ranked #4 of 15 Hotels in Beaufort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 March 2013

For those with discriminating taste, the personal service of old world travel and the charm and the history of America's romantic south, this is the boutique hotel for you. From its welcoming columns we approached to discover spanish moss blowing above gracefully over a courtyard. The spacious porch was most inviting. Ammenities were lovely and gracious surprises. Rooms were memorable. relaxing among new aquaintances around the evening fire was delightful! I'd thought about giving a modest review so that this jewel remains hidden forever.

Room Tip: we loved our garden view. ask what you will be facing.

From the moment we arrived and were greeted with a glass of champagne to our final moments after another luscious breakfast, we felt like part of something special! A lovely visit in Beaufort was enhanced by our stay at this truly lovely Inn. It's location and charm added to a wonderful getaway to this part of the south. Just loved it!

Every room is different but all rooms are large, beautiful and comfortable. Our room in the cottage had both a whirlpool and gas logs. Nice and quiet. The staff are very friendly, the breakfast, snacks and evening cakes and pies are wonderful. The glass of bubbly on arrival is an extra treat. The inn is situated in a gorgeous section of old Beaufort. Sounds: church bells and horses clopping by. After having discovered this gem, we never stay anywhere else when we make our short overnight trips from Charleston. Nice to be pampered!

Room Tip: Quiet rooms in the cottage

The staff and the extras at the Rhett House make it a special place. Cocktails on the veranda complete with a nice selection of cheeses serve as a wonderful welcome to the inn. Homemade desserts before bed are not to be missed. The location in beautiful Beaufort doesn't hurt either. Many nice shops and good restaurants within walking distance.

The Rhett House Inn has no equal in Beaufort, South Carolina. Others may charge the same, but offer less, and still others may be less expensive, and offer nothing. The Rhett House Inn is just what you want and expect in a southern Bed and Breakfast. Management and staff are friendly and responsive to requests and suggestions. The amenities are excellent, starting with the welcome glass of champagne on arrival, the house-made cookies, lemonade and iced tea all afternoon, continuing with a lovely cheese and olive tray at 5pm with honor bar, and your evening concludes with house-made desserts in the kitchen when you return from dinner.

Rooms have comfortable old-fashioned four-poster beds, bathrobes, televisions and cd players, nice bath products, and good air conditioning or heat, whichever is required. Linens and towels are white and fluffy. Ask for Room #3 and you will have a private section of the second floor veranda, with a hammock! Ask for Room #9 and you will have a private entrance off the first floor veranda.

Breakfast is served on the veranda in good weather and in the dining room on cool or rainy days. You can order from a small menu, including blue-berry pancakes or eggs as you prefer them. The day's newspapers are spread out in the living room, where you can also find menus from area restaurants, almost all of which are walking distance. Remember, don't get dessert at the restaurant, as some delicious ones will be waiting for you when you get "home".

There is plenty of off-street parking, and you won't need your car until you decide, reluctantly, that you must leave.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main house are convenient to breakfast, rooms in the other buildings are suites.

If you wish to enjoy real Southern comfort, and I don't mean the liquor, go to the Rhett House Inn in Beaufort, S.C. Not only will you be staying in an historical city, but an historical Inn as well. The accommodations are great, the staff is amazing, and the breakfast is wonderful. Then again, there are the added amenities of all-day cookies & juice, an afternoon cocktail hour, and homemade desserts after dinner. Add to this the fact that numerous movie and stage stars have stayed at the Rhett House Inn and you will feel like royalty. Our room, #3, was previously occupied by Barbra Streisand and Gwenth Paltrow. How great is that! We're thinking of sending them an autographed picture of us so that they'll know we stayed there as well. Go, you'll love it and the city!

Chose this B&B from its website, and the photos were very accurate. We enjoy old Southern colonial homes and this was our first visit to Beaufort. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is from a small menu with generous portions. Our room was #10 - Innskeeper Suite where we were quite comfortable and enjoyed the screened porch. At night, they serve excellent desserts in the kitchen with coffee. Great service and value, will stay here again.
