This was my second time at this historic B&B. First time about three years back. The Inn's staff is helpful, efficient and very friendly. I was accompanied by a rather demanding person who stayed in another room and the staff never showed impatience with her. The room was clean and comfortable. The public spaces are wonderfully set up and welcoming--great...

First trip to Beaufort and we had really been looking forward to great southern hospitality and an authentic stay in this historic B&B. If we had just spent all our time on the glorious front terrace, we wouldn't have been disapointed. It was excellent and the highlight of our stay. Otherwise, this inn is really overpriced. When we arrived we...

We are obviously disappointed that we did not meet your expectations. We pride ourselves on showing our guests what Southern hospitality is all about. All of our rooms are very different in size, decor and location. We do not have basement rooms but we do have rooms on our first floor street level that are not as bright as staying...

What a wonderful experience at the Rhett House! It was a perfect place to stay to keep the mood of the Tour of Homes. I loved having breakfast on the veranda! The location is close to areas of historical significance. Staff was knowledgeable about area attractions. I will definitely return.

I stayed at the Rhett house last week and was very disappointed in the accommodation. I was in the back cottage and they are neither pretty nor quaint like the inn. Ask for a room in the main building. The homey pies are a lovely thought but not a real southern quality item. Breakfast is good not great.

Stayed two nights in one of the cottage rooms. We liked the separate entrance, the room was small but had everything we needed. We also borrowed the bikes and road all over downtown Beaufort. It's a beautiful place. The breakfasts were good - enjoyed sitting on the front porch. Gracious hosts - I highly recommend the Rhett House Inn.
