The Rhett House was great!
Wonderfull service in a quite 1820's Antibellum home. Rooms were large and comfortable. Great snacks and deserts thoughout the afternoon and evening. Great living room/common area with a huge fire place made evenings enjoyable visiting with others.
Cant wait to go back!

Room Tip: Room 7 upstairs was very nice with its own fireplace. All rooms have private baths!

Third time that we have stayed there. A great B&B, in a great southern city, that is not too commercial. Staff were terriffic. They serve a wonderful breakfast that is fine dining. Afternoon tea with cheese and crackers. Hors doeuvres before you go to dinner and home made cake and pie, when you return at night. Can't beat that combination, which is include in price of room.

Room Tip: They welcome pets in the cottages accross the street from the inn.

Dear Mr. Koch, We always look forward to welcoming you back and appreciate all of our loyal, repeat guests. Finally after 25 years the owner's have decided to dedicate one of the rooms in our cottage as a pet friendly room. We know how many guests like to travel with their pets. We look forward to your return visit.

The Rhett House is a traditional bed and breakfast in an old house in Beaufort, SC. The rooms are typical: antique or reproduction furniture, no closets, florals and chintz. The bed slept well, and our room had a door out onto the upstairs piazza, which was a nice touch. Our room was also big, and the innkeeper was very helpful with our late check-in.

My biggest gripe was with the bathroom. Dated. Low water pressure. Leaky fixtures. Days Inn-style toiletries. Average towels. For the price, these areas, at least in my room, really deserve an upgrade.

The breakfast was full-service and was very good. If you can snag a seat on the porch, do it.

Beautiful setting and incomparable service. The staff were extremely attentive. The rooms were spacious and elegant. From the moment I walked in I felt welcomed, greeted with a glass of champagne, delicious hors d'oeuvres and a cozy fire. in Wish I could have stayed longer.

It's been a while since I've been to the Rhett House, but it's still the best Inn in Beaufort, no doubt about it!! I've tried them all and this still cannot be beat. Anya is a wonderful innkeeper. The service from every single staff member is top rate, the room was spotless, the bed was heavenly; the made to order breakfast was delicious. I declined the cookies in the afternoon, but was told they are divine and they sure did look it. The Rhett House is in the perfect location - set back from Bay Street so it's quiet, but within walking distance from all the sites you'd like to see and all of the restaurants including the newest (Old Bull Tavern - excellent) and the very reliable (Breakwater).
I wouldn't recommend anywhere else.

The Rhett House Inn is all about anticipating the needs of their guests. Everything is perfectly planned for and the staff does an amazing job of making it happen for those of us who walk through this beautiful historic inn. The food is amazing from breakfast, the afternoon snacks, to cheese and crackers, and almonds, and finally to dessert that will wow your senses. The staff truly represents southern hospitality, We were celebrating our 22 anniversary and the Rhett House made our celebration memorable. Dinner at Griffin Market was outstanding and we will definitely try it again on a return trip to The Rhett House.

Spent three nights at the Rhett House Inn, and enjoyed the Southern Comfort. Starting the day with a cooked to order breakfast, homemade cookies in the afternoon, wine and cheeses before dinner and delicious homemade desserts to finish the day only added to the charm. I would highly recommend and will return.
