Best B&B

The Rhett House is beautiful and spotless. The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. Some rooms have access to the porches. Ours didn't, but it was just a step outside our door. There is ample parking and once we parked, we didn't need the car again as it is so convenient to Beaufort. When we arrived, we were given a choice of champagne or iced tea. We chose the tea and saved the champagne for later before we went out to dinner. They brought it to our room and we sat out on the side porch to enjoy it after our drive. In the afternoon, they have sherry and appetizers and an honor bar in the lounge. The breakfast the next morning was 'made-to-order' and delicious. They serve breakfast in the dining room or on the front porch. I can't say enough about the service. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. You will not be disappointed if you stay at the Rhett House.

Love the Rhett House !

Rhett House Inn was a great location to enjoy some quality time with family. Great and luxurious rooms and wonderful main house. The breakfast in the main house every morning was the best atmosphere to get grounded with family and kick off the day. The Rhett House Inn is in a great location, convenient to the water, parks, historic grave yards, restaurants, bars, shops and ice creameries. We were close to Parris Island and the beaches for much needed family time post USMC graduation. Great spot! Beautiful, homey and peaceful. Thanks Rhett family!

Can't wait to go back!!!!

From the moment we arrived we were met with gracious and courteous staff. The Rhett House was like a glimpse back in time, with the history all around us. I can't wait to return, and I'm already looking at another B&B to try, but the Rhett House may outshine the others.

The breakfasts were good and a great way to start our day. The homemade deserts at night were a great way to end the day. The service was fantastic and set the standard for service that we expected on the rest of our trip.

Great Bed & Breakfast

Very restful stay

Emily was outstanding, always busy, but she still had time for our questions and made us feel so welcome! The chef ( Her name escapes me at this time.) was outstanding! She is fantastic at her job, and was so nice when she waited on us the first couple of mornings we were there. The location of the inn is perfect! Although the temps rose up in the 90's each day we were there, it was still nice enough to eat on the porch each morning - especially with ceiling fans going!
