Bordering the Intracoastel Waterway and in the historic district, the Rhett House Inn is perfectly situated to discover the glory of the South Carolina low country.

Charmig Stay With All The Hospitality of the South

4.2 on August 17, 2014

We stayed three nights at the Rhett House Inn, in cottage 18 with private parking. The cottage was charming and very well maintained with a very comfortable bed. The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The Inn is located within a five minute walk to many fine restaurants, shops and the waterfront. The carriage ride tour was very informative and was very enjoyable. We highly recommend this guest house when visiting Beaufort SC.

Our favorite B & B

A beautiful home in a beautiful town. From the wonderful staff to the delicious breakfast to the great evening snacks and deserts everything is the tops at the Rhett House Inn. Definitely our favorite B & B!

Beautiful place to stay. Don't miss the state park.

The Rhett House Inn is beautiful and Beaufort is charming. The Water festival was going on when we were there and i would recommend going at a different time. The festival spoiled the water front somewhat with noise and barriers. But definitely -- Beaufort is worth a visit.

Very relaxing experience!

The staff were incredibly welcoming, helpful and sincerely seemed to want our stay to be perfect. We stayed in Room 15 in the Cottage, a short walk from the main house. The room had a king sized bed, fireplace and small refrigerator and was very spacious. One of our favorite parts of the room was the balcony sitting area in which we enjoyed our morning cups of coffee and then in the evening with our glass of wine and desserts. There was always a nice breeze up there and it made for a very enjoyable experience. The only drawback I had with the cleanliness of the room, the bedroom was dusty, but otherwise was clean, the bathroom was the area of concern. The light fixtures were filthy and the Jacuzzi tub had not recently been cleaned as it had dirt and debris in and around it. Also, when I turned on the jets, many black pieces came out; it felt very unhygienic. But that said, once those were addressed our entire experience was excellent and very much exceeded our expectations. The staff were absolutely incredible as was the food which was served for breakfast, cheese plate in the evening followed by incredible desserts. I would entirely recommend this B&B to anyone as we had a very romantic, relaxing and entirely enjoyable experience.

We enjoyed our stay at the Rhett House Inn. We especially enjoyed having breakfast on the porch and having a late dessert in the kitchen. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Rhett House Getaway

I have been staying at the Rhett House in Beaufort since 1998 -- not sure how many visits, but many. (-: It is always such a pleasure & such a wonderful restful & pampered getaway. The staff make you feel as if you are staying in a friend's home -- always attentive, friendly & responsive. Beaufort is a delightful area to visit with a wealth of history to explore, as well as shops & delicious (and varied) dining experiences. Of course the wonderful, relaxed full breakfasts of your choice at the Rhett House are one of the best dining experiences of all, as are the wonderful cookies & desserts to round-out your afternoons & evenings!

My stay at the Rhett House was fantastic. I have always had bad experiences at B&B's, but this was great. The rooms were nice and clean. The value is what I would expect given the location, service, and extras you get by staying here. Overall, the service was amazing. I would come here again for sure!!.

Excellent experience at Rhett House Inn

We had an excellent experience at the Rhett House Inn. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The staff were friendly. There was lemonade, tea and cookies in the afternoon, followed by hors d'oeuvres and a cheese platter. There are many great restaurants in Beaufort. After dinner, we returned to the Rhett House Inn for delicious dessert. There are many fun activities in Beaufort, and we enjoyed being in walking to distance to the activities. I would highly recommend the Rhett House Inn. We will be back!
