“Peacefull Getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

If you're planning a trip to Beaufort- be sure to stay at the Rhett House Inn. We lucked out and got the best room on the property- #15 in the cottage. We have our own veranda with comfy chairs for lounging and cigar smoking...our 4-poster king bedroom with fireplace and jacuzzi tub made it harder than ever to check out! You truly feel like you can relax and escape at this wonderful Inn. There is food and drink to be had 'round the clock- once the delicious breakfast ends (a 8-10am window)...by golly it's time for homemade pastries and tea or lemonade ..and then before you know it- happy hour has arrived with sparkling wine and a gorgeous cheese platter...when you're making your way back from dinner in town swing back by the kitchen for an assortment of desserts and coffee (They'll even save you some and put it in your room at your request!).

Even though it rained the entire weekend, we had such a lovely time and can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Stay in the Cottage Room #15

We enjoyed a weekend in Beaufort at the Rhett House Inn. From the first staff person to the last everyone was gracious and helpful. The amenities at the Rhett House are second to none. Breakfast was delicious each morning.

If you are looking for a romantic, charming place in the heart of Beaufort, look no further than the Rhett House.

Room Tip: The cottage rooms were a little more private.

As always, the Rhett House lived up to our expectations. Their hospitality and attention to detail is what makes this inn stand out among the many options in Beaufort, SC. We live in Charleston, SC, and the Rhett House is the perfect weekend getaway.

Loved the location of the RHI because we could walk everywhere-the waterfront, restaurants, historic district. Our room was beautiful, so comfortable, and so convenient to the veranda, living room, and kitchen. All the food was scrumptious, the breakfasts,homemade desserts and afternoon snacks. Eating breakfast on the veranda with a view of the bay was fabulous! All the staff was very friendly, helpful, and efficient. I highly recommend a trip to beautiful Beaufort and this B&B!

We took time away from our teenageers and busy life for a weekend away for just US! We could NOT have chosen a finer Bed and Breakfast! From the time we checke in until Sunday morning when we checked out, we were welcomed, greeted and asked if we were in need of anything. We had a fireplace in our room, desserts at the end of the day, iced tea and lemonade offered during the day. The breakfasts were just perfect in taste and quanity. We will def. be back to visit The Rhett House Inn!!!

I booked the Rhett largely because of the great reviews it received on Tripadvisor. I was not disappointed. We made the 5.5 hour drive from Orlando and arrived at the Rhett at approximately 10:30 p.m. Much to our delight, we had been upgraded to a king room. The room was spacious and beautifully appointed. The breakfast was delightful. The blueberry pancakes are not to be missed! The house is simply gorgeous. The owners did a great job of modernizing the house yet keeping its historic charm. Everyone at the Rhett treated us with that famous Southern hospitality. My only disappointment was - that we could only spend one night at the Rhett! It was a short business trip. Rest assured, if my travels take me to Beaufort again, I will stay at the Rhett every time.

We visited in late March 2011at the recommendation of a former Beaufort resident. Wow! This was a beautiful property with over the top amenities: lemonade & iced tea with cookies upon arrival; cheese, crackers and fresh fruit with purchased wine/cocktails; after dinner desserts and coffee; a beautifully served breakfast in the dining room featuring the best grits I've ever eaten!

There was a problem with our first floor reserved room so they put us in the Innkeeper's Suite which was beautiful. Windows on 3 sides, sitting area, desk area, dressing area, large marble bath with separate shower and jacuzzi, a private entrance and all beautifully furnished. It was hard to leave.
