We had a wonderful time in Room 2. We were also offered Room 4 which is gorgeous but we felt Room 2 was cozier. We had a delightful breakfast on the veranda and borrowed towels and chairs to go to Hunting Beach. A beautiful place with very nice folks!

What a perfect place to stay! It was welcoming, comfortable, clean, and everything else you can imagine just from looking at the pictures! The evening desserts are to die for! It could not be more of a perfect end to our vacation. Suiting in the side yard by the fountain at night or sitting on the veranda everywhere on this... More

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary in style so we booked a room at the Rhett House Inn in Beaufort, South Carolina. Since the weather was in our favor that weekend, we took our boat from Savannah up the Intracoastal Waterway past Hilton Head to Beaufort. It's a lovely three hour trip. We docked at... More

We stayed at the Rhett House Inn for five days while we toured the entire area. First Beaufort is a beautiful city and you don't need to go anywhere else...The Rhett House Inn was a gorgeous homestead with a fabulously friendly and helpful staff. There was not a minute that they were not totally professional and thorough. Breakfast was tasty... More

Lovely area, so close to shopping and dinning. We stayed for two nights The room we booked on line was not the room we were shown and it was not available, but staff moved us to another room that was not in the main house. Room number 14 is very cozy and good for folks like us that like a... More

Check in was wonderful. All downhill after your credit card is on file. We were told we were "upgraded"-bed and 2 side chairs in corners. Wonder what the not upgraded room contained? Staff was not friendly, breakfast was 2 eggs and sausage link with toast. 24 hour coffee availability-where, we were still trying to get coffee at 8am. Finally just... More

Megsgram, Hello and thank you for your review. I do apologize that the Rhett House Inn did not live up to your expectations, but would like to clear up something for any future guests using TripAdvisor. You stated that you were "upgraded" and the room really wasn't that special. You originally booked a queen bedroom, because we saw that it... More

Stayed at the rhett house for three days with my parents in the BLAZING heat of a South Carolina July. The rooms were great (we stayed in #1 and #9) -- clean, air conditioned, with solid wireless. But the best parts were 1) a delicious breakfast on the veranda in the mornings (minus the view of the Motel 6 across... More

We recently stayed two nights at this B&B based on the reviews here and their website. We also got a good rate through Expedia. We have stayed at many B&Bs across the country, some excellent, some very bad. This is a very good B&B. The house is, of course, very old so that there was maintenance work in progress and... More

My wife and I stay mainly at bed and breakfasts when we can and we seek out historic inns when they are available. First of all many reviewers seem to think that old houses are going to be perfect but like seniors like me they are not. Old houses have their marks from being in existence so long and Rhett... More
