What a romantic place to stay. The room was perfect a great size and our own private parking spot .The comfort of the bed and the jacuzzi tub was amazing .the rustic flooring and decor of the room shouted southern living . My wife walked into a well needed air conditioned room after a hot afternoon walk where she found... More

While the Rhett House Inn is very popular in Beaufort, we were a bit disappointed with several things. We had booked a king room, but we're first taken to a very tiny queen. When I said we'd booked a king, they moved us, so it was available all the while. Breakfast is meh, coffee bad. In-room coffee is out of... More

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry about the mixup on Check in! We had a new front desk person who was learning the ropes. As a result of your feedback we are changing out the coffee in both the main dining room and checking all the room's coffee too.  Also had already planned to revamp and expand Hors d'oeuvres selections...

Some rooms are wonderful, some rooms are nice; all the staff is welcoming, smiling and helpful. Don't miss the breakfast: You can enjoy your grits while sitting under the fanned porch of this respectable house. Genuine Southern Hospitality at its best!

Gorgeous old house and charming staff who made us feel at home. We stayed in #1 in the main house on the ground floor, and it was great. The room had a nice smell. The evening dessert, homemade pecan pie, was fabulous. We'll definitely be back.

We stayed one night here and loved it. The service was on point, the rooms were excellent, the grounds were lovely, and the location near the market section of the city and restaurants was perfect. Just a block or two away, so you had the tranquility of the residential area, but the convenience of town. Breakfast was outstanding, and the... More

The Rhett House Inn lived up to it's reputation. The staff was very friendly and they went out of their way to be helpful. This was our 42nd anniversary, a chilled bottle of champagne was waiting for us upon our arrival.

The Rhett House was an outstanding host for our trip to the low country. Their complimentary bikes were a great way to see the town. The proximity to the restaurants was great. We were very grateful for the great A/C in the room.

We stayed at the Rhett House Inn for two nights and really there is nothing that is missing. The room was big with all amenities. The historic district of Beaufort is right there. However, if you are looking for a family style B'n'B the Rhett House Inn is probably not your best bet as it is run like a hotel.... More

Although told the room we had was the " favourite" it was certainly not great. Tiny shower, no room to lay out a suitcase etc. although rated high by some customers it was certainly not a 4.5! although very clean. night staff person was terrific. Daytime person seemed to make us feel as if we were a bother...perhaps just me...but... More

I’m so sorry that you were not happy with the bathroom. You must have had Room 4 which ironically is the largest bedroom in the inn with the smallest bathroom. It’s on the 2nd floor of the main inn and has been a ‘favorite’ with movie stars like Barbara Streisand Sandra Bullock who have both stayed there. The inn was... More

We had a lovely room with an extremely comfortable 4-poster bed. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the southern breakfast delicious. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay to celebrate my brother's 70th birthday, and we will, no doubt, stay there again when we're in the area. You won't go wrong by staying at the charming... More
