A truly remarkable resort, THE INN AT PALMETTO BLUFF was beyond our expectations. The main building looked like something out of Gone With The Wind, with elegant screened porches and a five star restaurant. Every night 3 blazing fires were set out front and long sticks, Hershey's bars, graham crackers and marshmallows were provided for make your own Smores. Our cottage had a view of the river, a screened porch, a gas fireplace, kitchenette/wet bar, king sized bed, claw foot tub, steam shower, his/hers marble sink and dressing room with his/hers closets. Our cottage came with two bicycles which we rode throughout the resort (miles and miles of paved bike paths that weave in and around the property). The two pools were appointed with everything from full fitness clubs and locker rooms to restaurant and bar service straight to your chaise lounge. We took several fitness classes (all complimentary) from yoga to spinning. The horseback riding facility was extraordinary- we should all live like these horses- and the Tennessee walker named Preacher I rode was like floating on air. We took a wonderful kayak tour of the May River, and day trips to Savannah were only marred by the fact that it was time away from this wonderful place. Probably the best thing of all was the Mercedes loaner program- guests can borrow the most top of the line Mercedes convertibles, sedans and SUVs for - get this- NO COST AT ALL, not even for gas- to take on excursions off property. Not only was it great not to have to rent a car, but the cars we drove were beyond luxurious and only added to the specialness of the trip. The natural setting was phenomenal and the wildlife was all around us-- from birds like heron to alligators, sharks, dophins, fox, deer, raccoons, flying squirrels.... and the people-- from the guests to the staff were about as friendly as I've ever met. I cannot rate this place highly enough. Just fabulous.
