We stayed in September 2013 - Beaufort and Rhett House Inn was one of our all time favorites. We are not big B&B people - but this one is so relaxing, gracious and private. Loved the breakfasts on the bog porch. Cocktails and appetizers in the gardens was a lovely way to chat with other travelers. Enjoyed a great dinner...

Made a birthday / mother's day trip to Beaufort to a "bucket list" location. Beaufort is beautiful and the location is ideal to get around the city center. The beautiful, historic house was great, but the site also has other options. Took a bike ride around the city using the inn's complimentary bikes. I think an off site pool/spa is...
