I cannot say enough positive things about the lovely Rhett House Inn. Everything was wonderful, our room had a fireplace and the most comfortable bed, the staff could not have been more accomodating and friendly. They truly make you feel welcome. A lovely Christmas stocking was put on our door for Christmas morning, a buffet lunch was provided on Christmas day since only 2 restaurants in Beaufort were open, breakfasts were delicious, Christmas cookies and coffee available and the list goes on--- anything you needed they were more than happy to get for you. The Mimosas on Christmas day were such a nice surprise!
What a lovely holiday!!

We had such a wonderful time we have already made our reservation for next Christmas!!

From check-in to check-out our stay was absolutely amazing. We felt like we were in a five star hotel. Like most we reviewed the reviews on trip advisor, and were a a little iffy on staying here. That all changed when we checked-in. Ashley was wonderful, she answered all of out questions and gave us excellent recommendations for dinner. Yavonne set up our carriage tour the next morning and was so helpful through out the day. Maurice and his wife were pleasant to talk to during our dessert as well.We had fresh baked cookies in the day and a beautiful cheese tray and fruit tray right before dinner and mouth watering dessert that were to die for in the evening. The staff was so professional helpful and courteous. Breakfast was out of this world My husband and I loved the grits. They were even kind enough to give us the recipe. What really made our stay was truly the staff. Not to mention our room was wonderful and felt like we were home. We had such and amazing time and we will return!!!!!!!!!!!!

My wife and I arrived on a Wednesday Dec. 2nd and stayed through until Saturday Dec. 5th. The Rhett House was fairly empty our first night, and became booked towards the weekend. This nearly 200-year-old plantation-style house is beautiful and charming, a great romantic getaway. The staff are professional and very helpful for recommendations on things to do, places to eat, and making reservations for activities. There is plenty to see and do in the Beaufort SC area.

We thought the Rhett House was an incredible deal, given the price you would pay for staying at a hotel and eating breakfast out. The breakfasts were excellent, with choices of either southern style (biscuits, eggs, breakfast meats, grits) or pancakes/french toast with a breakfast meat. The offerings of specialty homemade jams and jellies each morning were fantastic. We found that the breakfast staff were more than willing to mix and match among the items offered each morning.

We typically had dessert each evening (home made cakes and luscious pies) which we could take to the room, or eat in the common areas. The staff and the owners treated us very well, we will definitely stay again someday, and recommend to our friends and family.

We went t for our tenth wedding anniversary in Oct. It was the BEST vacation and We have worked for the airlines over 20 years and been to many beautiful places.
The Rhett House Inn is beautiful and Beaufort has many things to see and do. The Inn has the most wonderful staff ,friendly,courteous and professional. The two owners treat you like you are their cherished guest. We felt like royalty and were treated as such by each and every one of their staff. They helped us with any and all requests with friendliness, efficiency and professionalism. AND last but not least the Southern breakfasts are DELICIOUS!

First, the positive. Beautiful house & great location. Our room was spacious, comfortable.
The room had a large, comfortable bed, sitting area, fireplace, large screen TV and writing desk. The bathroom was small, but it was understandable with the house being a 200 year old house.

The negative. We chose this B&B because of the advertised service and homemade deserts served in the evening. There were many reviews praising the deserts.
On the day we arrived, the cake that was served was stale and at least three days old.
We had a fireplace and were looking forward to having a fire one evening. We were given a small fire starter log and that was it, no wood.
The breakfasts were just ordinary, eggs, bacon, sausage french toast. Juice and fruit were only available upon request.
We had stayed at the Americus B&B just before staying at the Rhett House Inn. At the Americus Inn we experienced outstanding service and special attention, exceptional homemade breakfast that was all homemade and creatively prepared & presented.
Some breakfast items were homemade muffins, frittatas and very creative fruit dishes.

At about $200 a night, one should receive more than just comfortable and beautiful surroundings. There should also be above the ordinary service, attention and meals.
I hesitate to mark yes or no as a recommendation. If they stepped up the quality of service and food I would recommend the Rhett House. Judging on our experience, I do not feel we received our money's worth.

My wife and I were recently married in Beaufort. Her family booked a room for us at the Rhett House Inn after the wedding reception. When we got to the room, the door was unlocked and the lights inside were on. Not exactly a good start to the first night of married life. The tub had rust rings throughout and it looked life housekeeping forgot to run over the rest of the bathroom. The whole room seemed more run down than "antiquated." Even worse, there were no towels! We ended up using the bath mat to dry ourselves after showering the following morning. The guy at the check-in counter expressed regret at breakfast but who cares. You only get married once (hopefully) and the compounding effect of everything the night before can never be made up to us. If you want to spend $300+ on a hotel, I'd recommend going elsewhere. It was rather pathetic.
