This is the most beautiful inn we have ever stayed in. Our friends from England traveling with us were equally impressed. Everything was perfect; from check-in to check-out. We chose to sip ice tea on the veranda when we arrived and saved our glass of champagne for later. The bedroom was large and comfortable. Breakfast included a choice of cooked... More

Beaufort is such a wonderful scenic town. The Rhett House is in the perfect location to see all that Beaufort has to offer. From the time you call for reservations until you leave they are so helpful they feel like family. I don't eat pancakes but if you are at the Rhett House you have to have some....they are amazing!...

It is a very charming, warm and welcoming B & B, with little snacks and tasty iced tea offered throughout the day and evening. Our room was absolutely lovely, very spacious and quiet, with our own...

Was a beautiful weekend with lovely southern hospitality! We stayed in a room that surprisingly fit us 3 girls without having to get two Rooms... And opened to what was like our own little private courtyard.... Could not have been a better fit. Lovely staff and so very accommodating and helpful in recommendations for the area. Thanks so much, all!

The breakfast was delicious, served hot and the menu provided us multiple choices. The staff was warm and friendly and added to the charm of being at the Rhett House. Check-in had a personal touch.

The Rhett House is truly our home away from home. This week we spent three days in Beaufort with old friends from Florida from our undergraduate days.

Stayed here with some friends. Staff bent over backwards to be accommodating. They had complimentary coffee, tea and iced tea, a lovely hor d'oeuvres tray but the homemade desserts after dinner where the coup de' gras. Location on a quiet street a 2. Minute walk to old town and restaurants made it perfect. They also have complimentary bikes for use.

We had a lovely stay at the Rhett House Inn in Beaufort, SC. The room was clean and comfortable. Emily checked us in and was very hospitable. She even served us dessert after the appointed time which was very much appreciated. Breakfast was delicious and hearty. We would stay here again.
