Thinking that South Carolina would be warmer than New York City in February, we booked three nights at the Inn over the President's Day three-day weekend. It was definitely warmer, despite the cold front which brought the highs only into the 50s on Saturday and the 40s on Sunday. Even so, we really enjoyed our 3-night stay in Cottage 13... More

It is tough to review this hotel because, although it is nice, it also costs $570 a night, so how nice is 570 dollars? I don't feel it was worth it, unfortunately. Palmetto Bluffs currently has 43 cottages that it uses for rooms rentals (most of which are duplexes), but it is building many more plus a 70 room hotel... More

Hopefully Montage management reviews these comments because 2 employees deserve standout recognition - Dave Smiley (front desk) and Nate (host outside). Both of these guys were professional and treat the operation of this property like it is serious business. There were a few minor issues when Nate walked us through the room (surround sound not functioning and eucalyptus for steam... More

Not much has changed to the cottages but the do have some maintenance to ... from my perspective. We go to Palmetto Bluff for the quiet relaxation - get up early and watch the sunrise over the May River, have a glass of wine and watch the waterfowl come into perch, read a book, take a walk, ride your bike...

This hotel is absolutely beautiful, the grounds and the buildings. The service is top notch. Every person I encountered seemed to genuinely enjoy working there. Every cottage automatically comes with 2 bikes. If you don't want that and don't want to walk ask for a golf cart or they will come get you in a golf cart within minutes. If... More

This property is amazing! Sitting on 20,000 acres, it takes 10 minutes just to get to the main building after going through the gates! The landscaping is impeccable as is the staff, the food, and much more! I loved it so much that I booked another visit to come back in less than a week from my first stay. There... More
