Sleepy South Carolina gem for golfers and nature lovers on 20,000 acres of pristine Lowcountry
Retro and timeless, the charming Inn at Palmetto Bluff takes inspiration from its namesake hometown, a sleepy South Carolina town surrounded by a watercolor canopy of draped oak trees. A brick-lined path connects the inn’s 38 cottages to the restaurants and spa, but the surrounding 20,000 acres lend a natural air of seclusion.
Bed and Bath
The cottages and suites have a classic Southern style, with pine-planked floors, vaulted ceilings and screened-in verandas. The comfy beds are dressed in down duvets and luxe Italian linens, and working fireplaces up the cozy factor. LED TVs, DVD players and WiFi supply the modern comforts, while the spacious bathrooms have deep soaking tubs and separate steam showers, plus organic amenities.
Golfers make a beeline for the Jack Nicklaus–designed course at May River Golf Club that sprawls across the property, while non-golfers can take advantage of the spa’s soothing treatments that use local lemon balm, jasmine, fresh cucumber and mint. Water babies should drop a fishing line in the various rivers, ponds, salt marshes and remote streams, or just take a turn in the readily available kayaks, skiffs, yachts and more. And all guests should enjoy the fresh South Carolina fare at the May River Grill at the Clubhouse.
