My son graduated from Marine Boot camp at Parris Island. While looking for a hotel I went to TripAdvisor first. I did NOT want to stay in a regular "hotel" - as my husband and I never get away together. I found Rhett House Inn and we went a few days early. It was spectacular. Josh and Joyce the two innkeepers went OUT of their way to help us out. Suggestions for hotels, and, as Josh is a Marine, gave us advice on when to go, how to get off base and beat most of the traffic on the way home. SO grateful, they did a wonderful job. The hotel was older and you can see it, but instead of being "worn" it was full of character. Because my husband rises around 4am, they both had coffee set up for him and had us just hit "brew" on the machine. Hubby said (as he is quite the coffee expert and drinks it all day) it was fabulous full-bodied coffee. The cakes/pies at night were wonderful and I especially loved the snacks put out in the evening, when I mentioned I LOVED the "crackers" I was given the recipe for the hot cheese bites. OUTRAGEOUSLY good. There is a TON of history there, more famous people have stayed there then live in Hollywood it seems if that floats your boat, but I enjoyed the fireplace in our room, the OUT OF THEIR WAY friendly service, spotless cleaning and good breakfasts. Devondra was so sweet while bringing our food. Truly a place to stay. I am NOT sorry I went down early and was sad to leave so soon. I would absolutely recommend this for anyone. Mostly couples I think, if two or three couples travel together - this would be the place to go. You can walk to any type restaurant/shopping/horse drawn carriage rides. The restaurants in the area were great as well. We loved Luther's, Emily's and Bull Tavern.
