We recently stayed at the Inn for our third visit. We will be back, so do not misconstrue this review. This is a very special property -- the cottages are fantastic, biking everywhere is wonderful and relaxing, the facilities are top notch, great food, excellent golf, etc. We have always stayed in a lagoon cottage...we like the views and wildlife....

Best for the long weekend or special occasion (wedding, anniversary). Beautiful landscape, immaculate territory, wonderful INN. It is very private, very southern and hospitable. Many interesting things to do with kids, various outdoor activities. The place is for Nature lovers. Wonderful family place. Go for bonfire and s-mores in the evening. On the cons side: can be hot and humid... More

My Husband and I stayed here for his 50th birthday, the first time we have been away without the children for 8 years. It was spectacular, a lovely retreat. The staff were very engaging and helpful, the views were all that you might expect of South Carolina, the food was good. We enjoyed the alligators and wildlife. But the early... More

Wow! We had a wonderful Spring Break week. First, the staff is amazing. Pat, the concierge, organized a dolphin cruise. Saw strand feeding, Eagles, a loon, and maybe a monk. We had a wonderful dinner at the Canoe Club. But we can't say enough about porching. Is this a southern invention? Cookies, lemonade and tea, and of course wine and... More

This is one of the most beautiful resorts my wife and I have visited. The cottages are very spacious and well appointed. The grounds are immaculate. From the time you drive up, the staff is there to meet any need you have and are very accommodating. The restaurants are great and the facilities are top of the line. They even... More

In January, we celebrated a milestone birthday and originally hoped to make a trip to Europe to celebrate. The cost of airfare made us change our mind and instead search for a place in the United States. Now I must say thank you to the airlines because otherwise we would not have had the wonderful experience of staying at the... More

We spent the past weekend at the inn at palmetto bluff and from the moment we pulled up to the inn until the moment we left I felt as though we were royalty. That is how special a guest is treated during their stay. Starting with Sean who opened my car door upon arrival, everybody went Above and beyond to... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Inn and had a very relaxing stay. The cottage was outstanding with a large fireplace, screened in porch overlooking bird island. The spa(a new one is being built) was a pleasant experience as the staff was great: Special shoutout to Norma! The food at the Canoe House was prepared by chefs... More

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
