I booked a last minute trip and was originall disappointed that I could not find a place on the ocean. That changed the minute I arrived, checked in and gave the bellman my car. It is an incredibly peaceful and beautiful location. You walk, ride a bike or travel via golf cart. The scenery is beautiful. I stayed in an... More

We attended a business retreat in Feb 2016. We were the newest acquisitions, so we didn't really know what to expect. What a surprise. After driving a rental 45 min from the Savannah airport, we entered a world that reminded me, in a way, of that village on the old TV show, The Prisoner, (actually a small resort village in... More

We were recently guests at a wedding at this property. The chapel is perfectly located facing the river, interior is new but feels perfectly worn. The grounds facing the water are a great place to enjoy cocktails and the staff did an amazing job on the creating a storybook event. Will be back on day to enjoy the rest of... More

You enter at a gatehouse for a preliminary check-in. A friendly person welcomes you and gives you a CD to listen to as you drive over 4 miles (!) to the main check-in area. The CD is a folksy- sounding gentleman explaining features of their property. This is unquestionably a beautiful property with lush natural vegetation, well-manicured (but not over-manicured...

We visited Palmetto Bluff several months ago, and had an evening meal at its restaurant. This was a superb meal and experience! The food was tasty and hot. The wait staff was attentive and most helpful and friendly. The atmosphere of the Inn and Palmetto Bluff was picturesque and memorable---the highlight of our trip. Do Not miss this dining experience,... More

I cannot express how well we were received from the bellmen to the front desk. They were engaging and never rushed. They answered all questions. We ere taken to our plus cottage where it was like Heaven. Everything you could need was in the cottage except food. I didn't want to leave. This is by far my favorite place to... More

We came without our children for a long weekend- the grounds and views are beautiful. We had a cottage that was large, beautiful porch- large bathroom. Was able to bicycle everywhere. Nice spa visits, they were all very nice. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful- not one complaint about that- We ate at River Cafe and Canoe Club and thought... More
