We’re dreaming about summertime after all that snow this weekend, and few things mean summer to us more than dock-sitting, fishing, and taking the boat out for a spin. These are all options at this “inn” in Carolina Lowcountry, which is really more akin to a sprawling estate, home to rivers, misty marshes, old oaks draped with wispy Spanish moss, and salty breezes. The main hotel building at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff looks like a classic southern mansion, and the 50 Cottages and Cottage Suites are simultaneously homey and utterly luxurious, with working fireplaces, screen porches, and gorgeous bathrooms. The multi-bedroom Village Homes are also luxurious, but lack some of the nuances of the cottages. Guests can enjoy a range of recreational facilities, including golf, bicycling, tennis, croquet, kayaking, and swimming (in the two pools), and the luxury spa is highly acclaimed. It’s not an overstatement to say that the Inn at Palmetto Bluff is one of the most special properties in the entire country. So as we say every week: sit back, relax, and soak up the goodness that is The Inn at Palmetto Bluff.
