The Rhett House Inn

Over the next few days I will chronicle our trip to South Carolina. We left Seattle at 7:00 am and flew through Dallas and on to Savannah. From Savannah we had a 45 minute drive to Beaufort, South Carolina where we would be staying. We stayed at the Historic Rhett House Inn. We arrived at the Inn at 6:30 in the evening.

 

We stayed in room #7 on the lower level of the beautiful old house.

 

 

This garden space was just outside our door.

 

Located in Beaufort, South Carolina, the 17 room Rhett House Inn is a classic restoration of 19th century Southern Antebellum architecture. Offering all of the amenities that seasoned travelers have come to expect from a fine bed and breakfast, this historic Beaufort Inn is among the finest accommodations on the southeast coast. The Rhett House Inn is situated in the historic district of Beaufort, SC, a small Southern town of only 11,000 and founded in 1712, and only steps away from the celebrated shops and restaurants.

We got settled and walked a couple blocks to Emily’s for dinner. We were tired from a full day of travel and it was nice to sit down to a good meal. We enjoyed our food and the waitstaff were efficient and helpful with questions we had about the area. On our way home from the restaurant at dusk Katie commented that it felt like she was on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland with the crickets chirping, the muggy air, and the Spanish Moss hanging from the trees.

Over the next week I’ll be posting more photos from the Inn and the Beaufort Area along with the main event, the Marine Graduation Ceremony at Parris Island. It was all amazing. We arrived home on Saturday and during our layover in Dallas we enjoyed an hour with my brother and my niece Miss Hope. I’m still recuperating and hope to get around to visit y’all soon.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. I love the “Haint” blue on the undersides of the porch ceilings. Such a traditional Southern color! That garden is perfect for sitting with a glass of sweet tea or breakfast.

    I am SO looking forward to my trip to So. Caroline this week with you! Spanish moss…ummm…dreamy!

    (PS: Bernie’s ancestors moved from Maryland to So. Carolina’s Pendleton District in 1790, and lived there until 1850. We have a soft spot in our hearts for old SC towns!)

  2. Loved your post, Ellen….I also went to the Inn’s website….How wonderful.
    I live in NC and love the town of Beaufort, SC….I may have to talk my hubby into going for a weekend getaway…
    Thank you for sharing with me.

  3. What a beautiful inn, and I loved Katie’s comment about Pirates….I guess that proves Disney got it right in evoking some of that Southern atmosphere.

    You are so smart to remember to photograph your room before unpacking….I always forget to do that and luggage and clothing and other stuff is scattered unattractively around when I do remember.
