This is a lovely inn in a charming small town between Charleston and Savannah. We have stayed several times at this inn, always in the main house on the second floor w/access to the lovely porch. We have enjoyed the fine linens and tasty breakfasts on the verandah. The best part are the dessert offerings later in the evening in...

Our first trip to low country and after reading the reviews we were looking forward to southern hospitality at the Rhett House. The common areas, especially the porches are very nice. But the staff was untrained and indifferent. Breakfast was mediocre. The wine and snacks were so so, although dessert was very good. The bathrooms really needed an update and...

Rhett House Inn is in an historic antebellum home, and is somewhat more of bed and breakfast than an inn. Like going back in time, the property is within walking distance to most everything special in Downtown Beaufort. The rooms are spacious with very high ceilings and are nicely appointed. The service was great, as was the traditional southern fare....

This was our first trip to Beaufort, and we could not have picked a better B&B for our stay. We were greeted with lemonade, iced tea, and cookies.

I had such a wonderful time staying at The Rhett House Inn and taking advantage of not only the breakfast, cookies and desserts, but also the friendly helpful staff.
