“A very pleasant get-away.”
Reviewed December 1, 2010

From check-in through check-out, everything was great. Very large rooms with extremely comfortable beds. The atmosphere was quiet even while located so near the waterfront and shopping. The food was good and the wait staff could not have been more pleasant.

After Trip Advisor and AAA reviews we narrowed our selection of lodging to attend our nephews USMC boot camp graduation at Parris Island to the The Rhett House Inn

From the moment we entered the Inn we knew we made the right choice

As we entered the back door Steve (the owner) greeted us - Steubenville, OH was our answer to his question "where are you from" he said "Hey I attended college with a guy from Steubenville" and as he went to retrieve his yearbook we checked in and were
advised our reserved room was indeed available but a different room on the first floor just came available AT A LOWER PRICE (go figure)!! As we explained our nephews USMC boot camp graduation was the reason for our visit Steve paused and explained that periodically he and friends would attend and said "you will walk away from that ceremony genuinely touched" HE WAS INDEED CORRECT

We were very pleased with advisements regarding site seeing, dining and things to-do

Iced tea, lemonaid and snacks are always available; full breakfast (cooked to order) from 8 until 10a; champagne with cheese and crackers in the late afternoon at no charge along with an honor system bar (until late) only highlight the great service we expierenced

The evening before our departure we thanked Steve with a "northern gesture" of hospitality and said we want you to have this bottle of "Jarhead Red" - we awoke very early the next morning to see our bottle of Jarhead Red wine along with folded American Flag and the USMC emblem prominently displayed on the fireplace mantle

Thanks for a great visit

My husband and I celebrated our second anniversary in Beaufort. We had never stayed in a bed and breakfast and noticed The Rhett House Inn's weekday special so we decided to try it. We are so glad we did! The general manager was wonderful when we checked in and suggested some places for dinner, like Emily's and Wren. We loved our upstairs room in the main house. The afternoon cookies, tea, and lemondade were a wonderful extra, as well as the evening cheese and crackers, and dessert at night. Do not miss the nightly desserts! They are so delicious! We enjoyed talking with the innkeepers and other guests while enjoying our scrumptous desserts. Breakfasts were also a delight! We enjoyed having access to bicycles and explored Beaufort in the early mornings. We also loved not having to drive anywhere. We didn't move our car until we left. We loved The Rhett House Inn and cannot wait to return!

This is a beautiful B & B that makes you feel like you are their only customer. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The food is delicious, especially the cakes at evening desert. Beaufort is a very quaint and charming town and many of the best eateries are within walking distance of the Rhett House Inn. Loved every bit of our stay.

This is a great place to relax. The wrap around porch is so inviting. This is our second trip and we will be back. Wonderful breakfast and coming back after dinner to homemade desserts and coffee makes it extra special.

I came to The Rhett House Inn as lodging provided by a local independent school that was hosting a visiting accreditation team. My wife and I experienced a reception and lodging like nothing before. Smiling people, who invested time with your needs and desires, were abundant. Home-made cookies and lemonade in the afternoon and home-bake pies and cakes in the evening were just a few of the extras this marvelous home. It was like going home and sharing a few days with your family.

My wife and I stayed at the Inn in early Nov. in a double queen size room just off of the fountained courtyard. Everything was perfect from the accommodations to the fabulous breakfast served in the elegant Dining Room. We will definitely be back! The staff was very accommodating, especially Anya, the General Manager.
