Offering luxurious pleasures of an authentic plantation house, the Rhett House Inn provides distinguished guests with a full breakfast, afternoon tea, evening hors d oeuvres, and homemade desserts. The inn is also just a short drive from Charleston, South Carolina. All of the 17 guest rooms at the inn include cable television, wireless internet access, compact disc players, and private bathrooms equipped with hairdryers and robes. Many of the guest rooms feature fireplaces, private balconies, and jetted tubs. The rooms located in the historic cottages have private entrances and porches-perfect for a romantic retreat in the low country. The Rhett House Inn, a classic restoration of 19th century Southern Antebellum architecture, offers all of the amenities one expects in a fine bed and breakfast inn, including a decidedly relaxed ambiance and tone. Beaufort is a small Southern town of only 11,000 and founded in 1712, located on the intracostal waterway, boasting an acclaimed residential, commercial, and waterfront restoration and surrounded by resort or retirement island communities such as Fripp, Spring Island, Dataw and even Hilton Head- truly a walk back in time. The Inn*s verandas are perfect for afternoon tea with homemade cookies and brownies or evening hors d oeuvres with wine and cocktails. Indoors, our exquisite main living room, made warm and cozy by English and American antiques, is the perfect place to socialize or read by the fire. Similarly, the great location means you will not miss a peaceful, relaxing stroll through the extensive and meticulously restored quaint historic areas of Beaufort.
