We had heard about the Rhett House from several sources before we finally stayed there. It exceeded all of our expectations. The service was excellent. Everything that came out of the kitchen was wonderful. The room was beautiful and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The Rhett House Inn is a must for all visitors. Staff is truly wonderful and thoughtful. Make sure you make reservations for more than one night. Beaufort is such a lovely community. The people of Beaufort make you feel right at home. The Rhett House has everything and more that one could want. Very peaceful and comfortable. We were in room 3 and at first concerned it might be warm because it was very hot outside. The temperture was perfect. The room is a beautiful corner room, nice and bright during the day and at night the blinds work perfectly to keep the early morning sun out. Very comfortable. The champagne toast upon arrival along with the cookies, cheese, crackers, salami , dessert and breakfast make the Rhett a real bargain. Wished we had more time to spend in Beaufort. Truly a wonderful city. Loved it and the people. Make sure to make reservations at the Old Bull Tavern for dinner a must.Honestly feel all the rooms are wonderful at the Rhett Inn.

Room Tip: Room 3 very nice corner room. All the rooms looked beautiful even the rooms on the first level.The r...

My husband and I just returned from staying at our favorite B & B in Beaufort, SC-The Rhett House which is a block off the main street and within walking distance to historic downtown Beaufort. The staff at The Rhett House go overboard trying to make your stay very special with their smiling faces, delicious breakfasts, afternoon treats and very special desserts to tempt you after supper. Beaufort is so close to Charleston, Savannah, or Bluffton where we took a day trip through the historic/art district and had lunch at The Cottage. Whenever we ned a get away, we head to Beaufort and The Rhett House. Thanks to each of the staff members for their outstanding service and accommodations!

Room Tip: Our favorite room is No. 10 with its own private screened porch overlooking the lovely garden at the...

I have traveled to many places in the USA and Europe and have to say that the service given from the staff at The Rhett House Inn was outstanding from the moment we checked in to when we checked out. We not only received customer service for the price paid but so many establishments forget to give customer focus, The People at the Inn did not. Some of the people who gave us excellent service and focus was number 1, Jo. She was fantastic. The others I remember were David, Josh and our server Dovanda. Thank you especially to Jo for her special attention in making us a part of the Inn's family. We will return in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 10 but saw rooms 4,6 and 8 and they were all quaint and lovely.

The Rhett House Inn is in a great location right in the heart of the Historic district and only 45 minutes from Savannah and an hour and a half from Charleston. We are glad you had the opportunity to explore and used this as a home base.

Our third-annual trip to the Rhett House left us with an abiding love for the city of Beaufort and especially for the owners and staff of the Rhett House Inn. This year was especially delightful as we were blessed to enjoy the Newcastle House for three amazing days! Our stay there was almost beyond description. We so enjoyed the décor, the warmth of the sitting room, watching "The Big Chill" on DVD after bike riding to see the house in which it was filmed, and restful nights in the two suites! As always, the staff made us feel so welcome and each time we left for a shopping trip, bike or carriage ride, or phenomenal meal at one of the amazing restaurants, we felt as though we were arriving home. There is no reason to stay anywhere else in Beaufort!

We had the good fortune of spending three nights at the Rhett House Inn in Beaufort, SC. Our rooms were an absolute delight and starting our day on the porch eating a delicious and healthy breakfast set the tone.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
Our rooms were clean and inviting.
Don't hesitate to book this hotel. You won't regret it.

Room Tip: Main house and cottages were both beautiful and close to each other.
