Overview

Sleepy South Carolina gem for golfers and nature lovers on 20,000 acres of pristine Lowcountry

The Look

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.

Beyond

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.

Palmetto Bluff, SC, is the most peaceful, relaxing place I have ever been to. The amenities are world class and the staff is outstanding. A great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. I highly recommend a visit to Palmetto Bluff.

Fabulous southern getaway

Great rooms, excellent cuisine, lots to do on site, world class golf course. Kirk and Christian at the golf course were extremely helpful, as was Rory at check in. The charm and service level of the Montage is extremely high and the location is perfect for many types of events.
