We stayed in room 10, which had its own private, screened in veranda. The room was nicely furnished and the bathroom was a nice size. The staff were very friendly and helpful directing us to restaurants when we wanted recommendations.

We enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Rhett House Inn while visiting our daughter and family over the Thanksgiving holiday. Our room was tastefully appointed and comfortable, and the common areas and grounds were well maintained and attractive. The staff was helpful and informed and we felt very much "at home". We highly recommend the Rhett House for those... More

LOVED my stay at the Rhett House Inn. The room was beautiful, and the view of the huge live oak at night from the second-floor veranda will live in my mind forever.

This is a lovely inn in a charming small town between Charleston and Savannah. We have stayed several times at this inn, always in the main house on the second floor w/access to the lovely porch.

Our first trip to low country and after reading the reviews we were looking forward to southern hospitality at the Rhett House. The common areas, especially the porches are very nice.

Rhett House Inn is in an historic antebellum home, and is somewhat more of bed and breakfast than an inn. Like going back in time, the property is within walking distance to most everything special in Downtown Beaufort. The rooms are spacious with very high ceilings and are nicely appointed. The service was great, as was the traditional southern fare.... More
