Glad we decided to stay in this lovely restored home with its great location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful. I would have given it a five star except the breakfast was disappointing, especially for the price. The fruit was not really fresh and the menu was very limited. We still felt pampered and would...

What a wonderful Well come with Champagne and wine after 6 h of driving. The room we where to stay in was already preheated and cookies brought up to it to enjoy with the drinks. After dinner we took the deserts and extra glass of wine to the room which was elegant, comfortable and cozy all at once and on...

On arrival we were welcomed by a smiley lady who offered us champagne and coffee! Just what we needed after a long drive. We were then shown to our room which feels like staying in your wealthy grandmas house. The house is wonderful and really made my stay in the south how I had wanted it to be. I love...

Friendly, gracious staff. Unfortunately they couldn't help with what was lacking from what you would expect in a place as highly rated as this. After hearing about the wonderful breakfast we were surprised at how many items weren't available since it hadn't been very busy. Bathroom amenities need some updating and replacing. Small items like tears in lamp shade show...

Friendly, clean, comfortable bed and breakfast. Cocktails and snacks on the porch in the evenings are a great touch. Breakfast is wonderful, with a true southern flare. The stand-alone cottages are remarkable and have been updated wonderfully, while keeping the historical merit.

We have stayed in Beaufort before, but never at the Rhett House Inn. We arrived and Robin took us directly to our "home" in the annex since we had our dog. We had a lovely room with a screened in porch. Had all the amenities....coffee pot, DVD player, TV and great bath products. We headed back to the Inn for...

We spent 2 nights with our daughter and her husband in rooms 11 and 12, across the street from the main inn. We found the Rhett House very charming and the breakfasts and desserts very tasty. However, the best part was the staff, a very warm and welcoming group! We will be back!

We have enjoyed out overnight stay many times as we travel to NC or Tenn. The staff is always pleasant and quick to accommodate a request or share a laugh. This was our first visit with two dogs and the facility was quite nice. See you on our next travels north

This historic B & B should be a wonderful place to stay on a visit to Beaufort. It's VERY convenient to the downtown shopping and the waterside park & marina. It's a beautiful old building. The folks running it are friendly, thoughtful, and welcoming. However, with all the other options in town, I'm not sure I would stay here again....
