Lovely inn with some of the best and most friendly entertaining staff we have come across. Well located. Accomodating to every need. Generous with wine, food and breakfast. Amazing late night desserts.

Made a birthday / mother's day trip to Beaufort to a "bucket list" location. Beaufort is beautiful and the location is ideal to get around the city center. The beautiful, historic house was great, but the site also has other options. Took a bike ride around the city using the inn's complimentary bikes. I think an off site pool/spa is...

I can't say enough about The Rhett House...My husband and I stayed at The Rhett House for my son's (Marine) graduation and my 50th Birthday in December.

I was brought here on a romantic surprise getaway…what a treat!!! We were greeted by Josh, who not only made a change to give us a better cottage room, but also gave us history on the house as he was showing us to our cottage across from the main house. While we ate our homemade dessert in the kitchen before...

We have had the pleasure of staying here at this lovely Inn on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. This year we had the honor of being upgraded to The Innkeepers Suite which was, in a word: "Fabulous." Large, king size bed, beautifully decorated, quiet and very comfortable. Thanks Joyce!...

We had a great time. The food was excellent. I am still dreaming about those grits! The cottage room was very nice. It had everything we needed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the inn.
