There are three B&B's in downtown Beaufort worth staying at, and this is one of them. While I liked the richly appointed decor of another slightly better, The Rhett Inn had a slightly better breakfast.

Room Tip: Stay inside the inn. We were in a room off the front porch, and while nice, we lost a bit of the his...

Loved this place. true southern hospitality - and i work in the travel/hospitality business. Recommended because we do business with them, and i was not disappointed: lovely and warm welcome, evening tea, and the evening desserts available in the kitchen really fostered that Southern community/family feeling. The entire staff was lovely, the rooms clean, well-decorated, roomy, and charming. the terrace unbeaten. the breakfast delicious. totally worth the time, and i think one of the highlights of Beaufort, not to mention our week in South Carolina/Georgai. THANK YOU Rhett House!

Room Tip: i personally love the upstairs rooms with access to the top floor terrace.

Thank you for a wonderful stay in a beautiful setting. Beaufort is a hidden jewel in the Low Country of South Carolina, and the Rhett House makes it even more enjoyable. The staff was more than helpful with suggestions and dinner reservations. Breakfast was a delight as were the freshly baked goodies for tea, and the snacks late in the afternoon were welcome after exploring the historic sites. Another nice touch was dessert in the kitchen after a dinner on the water in town. All in all it was a perfect place to spend time.

Room Tip: Next time we will stay upstairs on the second or third floor.

The Rhett House Inn is a very charming place! We loved our stay at the Rhett House Inn! The room was large and beautiful. The breakfast was fantastic. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. We loved being able to walk to the waterfront area. We would love to have an opportunity to return to the Rhett House Inn.

thrilled with our stay. we are seasoned travellers and have stayed at boutique hotels and inns across the country and elsewhere and our stay at the rhett was as memorable as any we've had. because of work limitations we had to arrive very late and the staff were able not only to accomodate our inconveniently late arrival, but were kind enough to save us two delicious desserts and have them and two glasses of champagne waiting for us in the room. the inn is beautiful and very well maintained. breakfast on the veranda is a wonderful touch and definately a step up from the typical boarding-house style breakfasts at b&b's where you eat with ten or twelve of your closest fellow travellers. if you like that sort of social thing first thing in the morning, there is also a dining room. highly recommend room number three because it has access to the second floor porch with a delightful hammock and the breeze off the river is magic. visual effect of the hotel, quality and state of restoration of the interior and furniture, helpfulness of the staff and quality of the breakfast are all excellent. i wish we could've stayed longer!

Room Tip: room 3 has the hammock on the porch. ... staff and visitors say room 2 is haunted.
