My wife and I stayed 3 days at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff last weekend. Our short vacation was absolutely fantastic! It was our first time at the property and all the staff was very helpful and accommodating in very respect. We ate at Buffalo's, and the Canoe Club and the meals were top notch! The sunset views of the... More

We returned to a home in Palmetto Bluff for the 2nd year in a row because last year was so fabulous. Once again, the Inn delivered. We got back home yesterday, and the kids are already asking about going back. Riding bikes/golf carts through the amazing property, kids activities (limited but very good), swimming, nightly smores campfire, friendlyness oozing everywhere.... More

This was a very special place to visit. I loved having a separate cottage, it's such a different experience from staying in a hotel. Our cottage was overlooking the river and we enjoyed relaxing on the huge screened in porch. It was nice to have golf carts and bikes to get around. The entire staff was helpful and friendly.

My husband and I bought at an auction and planned a "couples getaway" at this property and stayed in a gorgeous, well-appointed 5 BR home! I was pleasantly surprised at all of the amenities offered...which made it definitely worth the money! The food was unparalleled at each restaurant....even our morning breakfast delivered to our home! Along with the different fitness... More

Palmetto bluff is a perfect vacation for bigger families. We had our 2nd annual trip with 4 families and stayed in a large 6 bedroom rental home, One room featured 6 bunkbeds, which the kiddos loved! While chaotic (b/c of our young children), the amenities of the resort were perfect. From 2 large pools, all with poolside service, to chartered... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Bluff. But I do need to warn that there was, and currently is a beg big infestation. I was staying with a large group of people who were in several different village homes. One of my bungalow mates saw 4 bed bugs in her bed. We were told to pack up our things, they... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the lagoon cottages for two nights and it was really lovely. We relaxed by the pool, took out a kayak, walked and enjoyed seeing lots of birds and wildlife. The food we had could not be faulted and we ate in the Canoe Club and main dining room as well as a... More

We wanted a few days of sitting on the porch, leisurely walks, and spa treatments, and Palmetto Bluff is the perfect place for relaxation. Our cottage was the less expensive lagoon view, which was fine with us; it seemed very private. Having breakfast on the large and comfortable porch every morning is my favorite memory of the place. The food... More

My husband and I knew on the drive onto the Palmetto Bluff property that this place was special, it is charming, enchanting, peaceful and the only place we could see ourselves tying the knot. We were married there in November (small wedding ~100 people) and all of our guest have commented since that they felt like they were on vacation,... More

Entering the grounds of Palmetto Bluff one quickly sees the expansive nature of the resort. Worrking our way down into the main area and the Inn we quickly went back in time to the days of plantations and southern hospitality. We immediately settled in to the relaxing nature of the bluff. We checked into our cottage number 21 which was... More
