“Loved The Rhett House”
Reviewed August 27, 2006

We just returned from a weekend visit to Beaufort ,SC having stayed at the fabulous Rhett House Inn. The accomodations at this Inn were much more than we expected. The staff was extremely professional from start to finish. Their advice on places to dine were perfect.
The Inn is located in the center of this historic downtown district and bicycles are available at the Inn for use by their guests. The Inn also offers beach chairs and towels for their guests who wish to enjoy nearby beaches.

We wholeheartedly recommend The Rhett House Inn to anyone visiting the Beaufort area.

From the moment we step on to the stair case, under the great oak trees with the spanish moss trailing from all the branches, to the lemon aid and fresh baked cookie on the parlor table in the afternoon, along with a breakfast of southern grace, I could not have asked for one thing more. The staff and kittie's made my husband and me feel as if we had walked into a fairy tale of the south. It is wonderful to find a place that southern grace is still alive and smiling. From one southern that knows how special the south is.

Our stay at the Rhett House Inn was wonderful. The staff was accommodating and attentive. The air conditioner was not working in our booked room and we were promptly switched to a larger room at no extra charge. The best part was the breakfast served each morning. We felt like we were staying with friends, complete with two black and white cats "outback" greeting guests.

Beaufort was lovely, and upon my return I would definitely stay at the Rhett House again.

Check out Sheldon Ruins 18 miles before you get to Beaufort, but bring mosquitoes spray. Also, St. Helena Episcopal Church is a nice look into the past and call Eric at the Kayak Farm for some sea kayaking – it’s great fun!

A wonderful place to spend a special occasion! We had the honeymoon suite for my birthday and it is lovely! The service was great as were the fresh baked cookies in the day and the delectable desserts in the evening!

The Rhett House is a wonderful inn . We stayed in Room 2 which we loved. It has a private entrance onto the upper veranda complete with a hammock perfect for relaxing a hot southern afternoon away. The inn is within easy walking distance to Historic Downtown Beaufort and the staff was very helpful. Breakfast outside on the veranda is a great way to start the day. Also provided are afternoon tea, lemonade and cookies, cold bottled water for those walks around town and nightly coffee and desert -- pecan pie yum! We hope to return :o)

Came to Beaufort by boat and spent 1 night at Rhett House. Was a wonderful getaway spot. Contrary to another review, Room 1, while on the Inn's main floor, was surprisingly quiet and BEAUTIFULLY decorated. Reasonably priced (<$200), great little town, eat dinner at Saltus.

This is a very nice, professionally run, well-maintained inn in a series of charming, historic buildings. Complimentary afternoon hors d'oeuvres, evening desserts, and bicycles added to the ambience. The atmosphere is a little "corporate", since the owners are in New York rather than on the premises much of the time, except for pictures of them entertaining famous people. The most detracting feature, however, is that there is a 10% service charge added to the bill that was, to our knowledge, not disclosed anywhere.
