The Inn and spa at Palmetto Bluff is, by far, the nicest place I've ever stayed. The room was a gorgeous, spacious bungalow with a bathroom I would dream of having at home (steam shower, claw foot tub, enormous, etc). The bedroom has a beautiful king size bed, a fireplace, and is beautifully appointed. The Spa...true heaven. If you book... More

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...
