I went to visit the resort after finding it online as a destination wedding site. I requested information regarding wedding packages and was presented with the following option (dated 2014): "Sunday weddings that are tailored for more intimate party sizes of 25 – 50 guests require 5 cottages for 2 nights at an average rate of $400-$600 depending on the...

The Inn was absolutely beautiful - our luxurious cottage over looking the lake was incredible.......so peaceful and serene. The service was devine, and the meals were delicious. Our 2 year old Labrador had a great time too. Can't wait to come back here!

Absolutely a great destination. Customer service is second to none. Four Seasons/Ritz service with genuine southern hospitality added on. Great facilities, room, golf and other. Definitely a return visit planned.

We just returned from a four-night stay at the beautiful Inn at Palmetto Bluff. It’s hard to know where to start raving about this gorgeous property, so I’ll start at the beginning! From the moment we entered the gate we were in absolute bliss. We were handed a six minute audio cd to listen to as we meandered our way... More

These were the words my husband said as we checked into our cottage. I had followed this property for several years & we finally got the chance to stay. Suffice to say we booked for 2 nights & stayed for 4. It is fabulous, believe the hype. We had planned to keep driving South toward Florida, but I said to... More

We were fortunate to be guests at a wedding held at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff (the ceremony was in the Chapel and reception in the ballroom on the second floor of the main building). We had a wonderful experience, and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer (instead, we headed over to Hilton Head for a few... More

Spent two nights here on an anniversary trip and this is an exceptional property. We went kayaking in the pristine tidal estuary of the May river which has rich sea and bird life. We also kayaked in the lagoon which was beautiful and had turtles, alligators, and trees full of nesting birds. The resort is part of a larger development... More

I recently visited this amazing place with a friend of mine for a little getaway. The setting, perfect. The cabins, beyond perfect. We just kept saying "They thought of everything." And they really did. From the grab-n-go s'mores to the bikes waiting at your super high-end cabin. Everything was exactly as you think a vacation should be, right down to... More

Enjoyed my most recent of several visits to PB. Absolutely the best resort in the south (love it more than Sea Island and The Sanctuary). Casual southern vibe, biking, kayaking, boating, pools, tennis-perfect family get away!! And the homes you can rent are gorgeous plus great for cooking meals for the family (new publix is a short drive off property).... More
