“A bit of Shangri La”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

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.

This is a wonderful place to stay when you go to Beaufort, SC. The service is wonderful, staff is super friendly and overly accomodating. We were handed a beautiful glass of champagne upon arrival, then had pastries while sitting by a fire !!! After our check in , our amazing room with fireplace was beautiful, then we wen to dinner and the Inn had our desserts waiting for us when we got back. Breakfast the next day was delicious , and we just couldnt get over the wonderful people who took such good care of us. First rate all the way!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 15 in the cottage - beautiful and spacious

This is the best place to stay in Beaufort SC. I've tried other B & B's in the area and this one tops all of them. The warm hospitality, yet allows you privacy and overall Southern charm makes this a perfect place. Lots of refreshments during the day and a comfortable beautiful rooom with all the comforts of home. I stayed there last Feb and will be returning this one. The area has lots of do, shopping, sightseeing and fine dining. Loved it and will return.

Room Tip: My room was on the veranda and very nice!

We had a most relaxing time in this comfortable hotel. We stayed in an annexe suite which was very comfortable. They serve wonderful breakfasts, have bikes to borrow to enjoy the surrounding countryside, nice restaurants and a pretty town, all on the doorstep. We also enjoyed kayaking and visiting the surrounding towns. All the staff were very welcoming, helpful and charming - Thanks

My husband and I enjoyed a one night getaway in beautiful Beaufort. The Rhett Hose was perfect in accommodations, comfort, close proximity to downtown area, restaurants, and walking the waterside park. The RH staff, food, other guests and location made our stay one to remember and easy decision to return.

The Rhett House Inn offers a friendly, lovely spot to enjoy all the pleasures of downtown (small downtown :) Beaufort. We chose RH because we wanted to bike, walk to the waterfront, visit the restaurants and shops and not have to get into the car. Anya, David, Joyce and all staff members were fun, gracious and took care of all our requests willingly...got the bikes ready, made restaurant reservations, printed endless maps, let us eat early breakfasts so we could make our business appointments and kayaking trips; and overall offered a non intrusive, attentive level of service that was quite delightful. This town is gorgeous. And the food is incredible; at the restaurants and at the Inn itself.And the trees are so ethereal and beautiful. Do yourself a favor and spend a few days here to take it all in.

Room Tip: Room 2 has its own door onto the porch but can be a bit noisy from the kitchen below. However, it i...
