My wife and I stayed at the Rhett House and enjoyed ourselves. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable and had all of the necessary amenities. The breakfasts were excellent. A nice choice of home made meals. You can't beat the location. I would recommend this place to anyone who visits Beaufort.

I was looking for a boutique B&B to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The Rhett House was a delight for us. I booked room 10 which had a private screened porch. The interior was very welcoming and the common areas tastefully furnished. We stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time. An easy walk to shops and restaurants.

I have stayed at the Rhett House many times over the last fifteen years and have always found it to be an excellent experience. The old mansion is lovely, the staff professional and the service very good. We enjoy the breakfast on the porch or the dining room equally as both are gracious places to relax and enjoy the delicious... More

nenebug1947, Thank you for staying with us once again, and as always thank you for being such a loyal guest! I am sorry that you could not enjoy breakfast on the veranda. The Rhett House, being almost 200 years old, requires quite a bit of maintenance to keep it looking the way it does today. Once again, I do appreciate... More

My wife loved this place. The service was excellent. We asked for a king if it became available and we got it, although my wife needed stairs to get into bed. The house and grounds were well maintained and lovely. The breakfast was very good. You choose from a menu. There were snacks, etc. all day. There was an honor... More

Excellent service, accommodations, and food! We were made to feel as if the house were our own, which made it a nice home away from home while traveling. Easy walking distance to most restaurants and shopping. Will definitely be back.

The Rhett house was a friendly place to stay for a local wedding. The staff seemed to be working very hard to improve the house most of each day. Someone was fixing the steps, painting, cleaning or helping guests. It was impressive. The house is very old and well taken care of and has a lot of character. We stayed... More
