I have been using Tripadvisor for many years to research vacation destinations but this is my first time reviewing one. I would be doing a disservice to The Inn at Palmetto Bluff if I did not let reviewers and readers know about this place.
A few weeks ago I was researching the perfect honeymoon destination. After spending countless hours reading reviews for places all over the world, I made the decision to book with The Inn. And we could not be happier with that decision. It is only our second day here and there is already so much to say about this place. My wife and I have been in the service industry for most of our lives and we have high standards, but I have a feeling that once this trip is complete, our standards will be raised to almost unreachable levels.
This is our first morning here and we are sitting in our screened in porch at our river view cottage.
We are in cottage #9. It is located closer to the village area. The cottage is beautiful inside and out. There is every amenity you can possibly think of. I can go on and on about all of the things this cottage offers but you can look it up on their website.
From the second we got to this property we were treated by the staff like royalty. We got here a few hours before check-in so our room was not quite ready. The gentleman at the front desk suggested a couple of places to have lunch. They gave us a ride to The Grill at The May River Golf club. Service and food were excellent. Immediately after finishing lunch, we were picked up by a nice gentleman named Blue. Blue told us everything we needed to know about the property including a few suggestions on activities during our stay. He walked us into the cottage and explained all of the amenities to us. He was nice enough to walk down the river and grab us a couple of chairs for us to relax on which he did not need to do. He overheard me complaining to my wife about my allergies so after he left, he took it upon himself to bring me Benadryl along with our golf cart. I love that he went above and beyond for us. The secret to winning a guest over immediately is to go above and beyond for them and he did this within the first fifteen minutes of meeting us. After he left I was like a kid at a toy store. Playing with the 55" LED TV, Starting the steam room, and exploring the iPad that is provided. We took a nap before dinner at The River House. Once again greeted by the Maitre D like royalty. We were sat on the patio and had to step back and look around at how beautiful the entire setting was. If there is one suggestion I can make is to stop for a moment periodically and look around as you are always surrounded by beauty. My wife and I are foodies and being in the industry in Chicago, we also have high standards when it comes to food. Once again, food and service was excellent. My compliments to Chef Chris Blobaum. After dinner we made s'mores by the campfire. The s'more kit was provided by the Inn. After that we took a walk down the pier and sat back and looked at the stars. A perfect end to a perfect day and night. We have four nights left and we are so excited of what's to come.
