I've been to the Rhett House many times. I'm really excited to see that it's getting a great deal of upgrades. The amenities are the best in Beaufort. I love the addition of the drink selections to the bar, and the desserts are probably my favorite part. Amy was so sweet to put them in my room. Thank you for making my trip so comfortable.

An amazingly friendly staff and lovely property. Stayed a couple of nights to attend a local wedding and had a wonderful time. Room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast was fantastic. Would highly recommend for couples.

And everyone of the staff we encountered were welcoming and helpful. From check in through check out, our stay at the Rhett House Inn was a great way for us to begin the new year. We arrived during the afternoon reception (various cheese snacks in the main room) and saw that folks were sitting on the veranda enjoying the early evening ambiance. Once we settled in to our room, we asked about dinner recommendations and Amy made a reservation for us. We enjoyed meal and our stroll to the restaurant and then returned to our room. It was cozy (with a gas fireplace) and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the next morning we enjoyed breakfast on the veranda. Our server, Christy, was very pleasant and efficient explaining that we could have anything or everything on the breakfast menu. The challenge was to not break our New year's resolution on the second morning! We met the chef, Allen, and not only complemented him on the food but also the entire breakfast experience. The Rhett House Inn is a wonderful spot to explore Beaufort and experience some Southern hospitality. We will definitely return and bring some friends!

We love Beaufort and we loved our stay at The Rhett House Inn. My husband and close friends stay at a sweet cottage in Port Royal and travel to Beaufort- but this visit we were lucky to get a night at The Rhett House before heading home. Everyone made us feel welcomed from checking in to checking out. I enjoyed the short walks to our favorite stops and riding my bike through the beautiful historical streets. My favorite has to be breakfast on the veranda- thanks Beverley! You did not disappoint! And the folks who helped her could not have been nicer. We will be back.

This was our third stay at the Rhett House Inn, and my wife and I enjoyed the privacy and comfort of Room 10. We had our own porch which overlooked the nicely manicured side garden, and the exterior location of the room door enabled us to come and go without passing through the main house. The breakfasts continue to be one of the highlights of a stay here, and Beverly and the kitchen staff provide a hearty and delicious start to the day. We dined on the front porch one morning because the weather was so delightful, and the view was an added bonus. We were checked in by Mimi who showed us our room and provided helpful information for our stay, and we were checked out by Debbie who we thoroughly enjoyed talking with before our departure. The Rhett House Inn is located within easy walking distance of the restaurants, shops, and waterfront attractions that make Beaufort such a wonderful town, and it provides visitors with an exceptional base for exploring the area.
