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 House has its historic blemishes. To us that adds to the character and does not detract from its charm. The first floor room we chose was very nice and well maintained but perhaps a little like a more modern hotel room but still excellent for our stay. It was quiet for being on the main floor and we slept well. The staff was very accommodating and courteous and helped us with our needs such as recommendations and reservations for dining. The two recommendations were Breakwater and Old Bull Tavern which were both great choices for our dining needs. The breakfast were excellent and the servers were great as was the view from the porch. The only down side to the view is looking at the back of the Best Western motel(not totally ugly but less than wonderful and certainly no fault of Rhett House). The evening snacks and desserts were both nice and we travel with our own wines and beers so we had those rather than the fee based wine and liquor selection. The staff and the accommodations and the town were all excellent and we will certainly return to both Rhett House Inn and Beaufort in the near future! Hope this helps you make your lodging choice for Beaufort as the history, shopping, art, low country, islands and lodging are very inviting, enjoyable and will certainly draw us back! Hope it does you!
