Inn in Beaufort celebrates anniversary

The Rhett House Inn in Beaufort is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Innkeepers Steve and Marianne Harrison purchased the inn in 1986 after moving to Beaufort following a career in the New York fashion industry, according to a news release. They restored the circa-1820 hotel and began operations as The Rhett House Inn in 1987.

The inn has hosted celebrities such as Barbra Streisand, Robert Redford, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Bacon, Nick Nolte, Ben Affleck, Sandra Bullock, Demi Moore and Sharon Stone.

It has been featured in publications, including the December 2010 issue of Southern Living magazine.

To mark the anniversary, the inn will provide a complimentary bottle of champagne and souvenir flutes, as well as 25 percent savings for two-night stays Sunday through Thursday until Sept. 30.
