We have visited The Rhett many times in the last 3 years. It never disappoints. The staff is friendly, the food is AMAZING, the rooms are clean and comfortable. Their attention to detail is incredible. From the Hors d'oeuvres, to the added perks of beach chairs and bikes - it's simply one of our favorite places to visit.

I attended my nephews graduation from marine corps boot camp parris island, after the ceremony I needed a place to stay before my return home, with no pre planning, I just showed up at the Rhett house and all of my needs were immediately attended to, it had been 33 years since I had graduated from parris island and my trip was very nostalgic for me, Jason , a former jar head took excellent care of me, the staff and service was impeccable, breakfast fantastic, I was welcomed with open arms and I felt like I was returning home after a long absence, I would stay again and recommend the Rhett house to all of my friends, semper fi

Scott B,

Mr. Scott! It was a pleasure meeting you and talking Marine Corps. The staff at the Rhett House Inn strives to make every guest feel like they are returning home. We want our guests to come to Beaufort for there vacation, but by the time they check out I want them to feel like The Rhett House Inn was there vacation.

Once again, it was so great to meet and talk with a great former Marine and I look forward to seeing you in the future!

Your friend,

Josh

The Rhett House Inn is a great place to call home while visiting South Carolina's lowcountry. The inn is ideally located in Beaufort's historic district. The lovely downtown and waterfront are a short walk away. But the Inn is also a very quiet and peaceful place to stay with nicely furnished rooms, beautiful communal space and a very helpful, knowledgeable staff. Unlike a typical hotel, you'll find complimentary refreshments every afternoon and desserts each evening. The breakfast is cooked to order and outstanding. If you start your day hungry, it's because you chose to!

My only complaint was the intermittent wifi service. We were housed in a room on the lowest level and had difficulty getting regular internet access to check e-mail or look up sites we wished to visit. But this may have been because our location in the Inn was farthest of any room from the router.

I just arrived home last night, after being in South Carolina. What a lovely state. So green and filled with all kinds of water ways. My granddaughter was with me and she took over 1400 pictures. Our stay at the Rhett House Inn was like a walk back in time. Out side our room was a "secret garden" with fountain and lights and magnolia trees, flowers, a great seating area to relax and have drinks and conversation. The food was delicious and plentiful. We had a terrific time and I'm ready to go back again!

Room Tip: There was no fitness center or spa. Room 7 had the outside door and we loved it.

My husband and I arrived in Beaufort and at the last minute decided to call the Rhett House Inn, on the advice of Southern Living Magazine. I asked if there happened to be any rooms available for Thursday and Friday nights and the hostess said there were and checked us in. The next day it turned out that the room we were in had been accidentally overbooked. We were initially very disappointed, but the inn arranged for a room for us at the Cuthbert House Inn, another stellar bed and breakfast, a block away. This suite, probably one of Cuthbert House most sought-after, was $100 more a night. Rhett House Inn paid the difference, to make up for our inconvenience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at both B&Bs; the food was wonderful.
