“A charming inn in a charming town”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

We booked through orbitz. And orbitz forgot to inform Rhett house we had a reservation. Despite it all the staff was helpful and found us a room in the cottage. We had a great time and the food was great. Will definitely go back.

200 year old classic Southern mansion. Very nice staff. Enjoyed chatting with other guests in the front parlor with cheese, crackers and wine. Huge, Spanish moss draped live oaks. Very close to what you want to see in Beaufort - well preserved homes, waterfront dining, shops. The house is very old, and shows it ( many layers of paint on the columns), but a pleasant and memorable place to spend a night or two.

We are glad your stay was memorable and that you enjoyed mingling and getting to know other guests. The Rhett House Inn was built in 1820 as a private home and then used as a hospital during the Civil War. There is definitely constant maintenance on a 200 year old house and we are continually making improvements to maintain the character of the Inn. Thank you for your review.

Excellent B&B. We typically shy away for B&B properties as we prefer hotels but I would stay at this property again anytime. In fact I'm sure we will. Food & service excellent. House is very spacious with huge porches & a courtyard for relaxing outdoors.

Highly recommend.

Room Tip: 3rd floor room #4 was excellent. Spacious & clean.

We stayed in mid-July in Room 16 in the cottage section. Our porch overlooked a quiet yard, and from there we had a great view of the fireworks that started off the Water Festival. The staff here are very friendly and helpful and do everything they can to make you comfortable and assist with sightseeing and dining options. I didn't know how convenient it would be to stay in the cottage section, since you have to cross the street to go to the main inn for breakfast, etc. It was simply not an issue. We would definitely go back for another stay.

Room Tip: Rooms in the cottage section are comfortable and homey.

On behalf of the staff it was our pleasure to make sure you enjoyed every aspect of your stay. Our cottage house offers our guests more privacy as each room has it's own entrance with a private porch and as you mentioned not an issue as far a enjoying the amenities the main Inn has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back.

My husband and I live in Beaufort and we love taking a mini vacation away from home and staying at the Rhett House every year! The staff are always friendly and more than helpful! We stayed in one of the cottage rooms and loved having our own front porch where we entertained guests!

I travel very often for work. During a television shoot down in SC, I stayed at the Rhett House Inn. The service was the best I have had in an extremely long time. After longs days, I am always begging to hit a comfortable bed and here, comfortable is exactly what I was given. The staff is friendly and makes sure you are taken care of, at all costs. Not only that but the rooms make you feel welcomed right when you walk in. Next time I am here, I will be coming back and I will be recommending these rooms to the rest of the crew.
