“wonderful southern hopitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

My husband and I stayed last week At the Rhett House. We thoroughly enjoyed room 2 . It was clean and very confortable. We enjoyed having a private door to the second floor veranda. We were able to get a small breeze during the late afternoon. My husband and I both agree it was one of the best b&b's that we have stayed. We really appreciated late night homemade deserts, champagne when we check in, as well as the lemonade and snacks that were provided. I give the staff 5 stars for going out of their way to send me my electric rollers that I had forgotten and left in the room.. Beaufort is a beautiful place to visit and you need to top off the experience by staying at the Rhett House.

I don't usually opt for inns, preferring privacy and quiet to charm and other guests, but the Rhett House Inn combines the best of a bed and breakfast with the services of a fine hotel.

My room (Number 2) was on the second floor, with its own door to the second floor veranda where I could sit on a wicker settee or lounge in a hammock. The room has a queen bed (very comfortable), a desk and chair, a flat-screen wall-hung television, and an adequately sized, sparkling clean bathroom with tub/shower and a window.

A glass of champagne is offered on check-in, which I deferred until happy hour (when a plate of assorted cheeses with crackers and olives are set out) since home-made cookies and iced tea and lemonade were waiting in the living room when I arrived.

Desserts are offered in the kitchen in the evening and I enjoyed a slice of Key Lime Pie with other guests around 9pm. The nicest treat is the made to order breakfast. Several options are on the menu, a server takes your order, and you can sit inside or on the veranda. The weather was perfect during my visit (late June) but when it's too hot (most of the summer) the dining-room looked very nice and the whole house is air-conditioned.

My only complaint, and it's a common one wherever I go, is that the rate is the same per room, single or double. So I paid the same price as two people would have paid, even though I drank one glass of champagne, ate one piece of pie, and had only one breakfast. Not to mention that I used only one towel and hot water for one shower. Doesn't seem fair, but it never is. Even a small discount, say 10 or 15 percent would go a long way to making single travelers feel less grumpy. Speaking of single travel, the Rhett House Inn is very, very comfortable and I felt quite at home. Most other guests seemed to be couples, and one or two older children were around, too.

I will definitely stay at the Rhett House Inn again.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are quiet.

We stayed here a couple of weekends ago to attend a wedding. The moment you walk into the beautiful front hall, you know you've walked into someplace special. The porch, the living room, the dining room, and especially our bedroom was better than we expected. The staff was friendly and helpful (especially the breakfast waiters). The location is right in town, no need to drive anywhere. Our room was large and extremely comfortable. And all the rooms were different. I would without hesitation stay here again.

Room Tip: I stayed in the main house on the second floor, king size bed room. I would request that room again...

Had a lovely stay at the Rhett House Inn. Loved the setting in Beaufort which was great for walking or carriage riding and the town itself so full of history. The Rhett House Inn was just as I envisioned a 'southern' property (Gone with the Wind being a favourite book and film!) and we enjoyed our lovely breakfasts on the porch. The staff were very helpful and made us a lovely picnic which we took to one of the nearby beaches. A great base to explore the whole area, with beaches, lovely scenery and within easy reach of Hilton Head, Savannah and Charleston. Would certainly recommend this inn and would return if again in that area.

My husband and I recently stayed in the inn the night of our wedding, and it was so perfect. The ambiance is so quaint and romantic. I am a CLEAN freak and the room could not have been in better condition! The staff was so helpful and took the extra time to make our first night as a married couple extra special. They made sure our champage was chilled and the rose my husband gave me was in a precious vase in the room. Thanks for making this special day even more special with such a nice experience!
