At the confluence of three rivers in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, a centuries-old wildlife and hunting preserve is now the site of a unique AAA Five Diamond rated inn commingling nature and modern luxury with spectacular views and plentiful outdoor activities.
The Inn at Palmetto Bluff, near the quaint historical town of Bluffton, has cream-white Southern-style cottages with tidal frontage overlooking live oak trees dripping Spanish moss or views of a marsh dotted with grey herons, ibis and snowy white egrets standing sentinel-like awaiting hapless fish.
There are homes for rent and boutique shops in the nearby Wilson and West Wilson villages, a Plantation-style lodge with a wine cellar, lounge, four restaurants and supplier of s’mores to dangle over three outdoor brick fire pits while enjoying conversation and drinks.
With the May, Cooper and New rivers nearby, Wilson Landing launches kayaks, canoes, fishing expeditions or leisurely sight-seeing picnic boats or dolphin watching tours around barrier islands. Others may choose a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, bicycling, tennis, bocce, croquet or a 24-hour fitness center.
Guests can borrow a Mercedes to test-drive or complimentary fishing poles to dangle off the boat dock. Screened-in cottage porches invite tranquil moments, rooms are plush with dressing areas, bathrooms have walk-in steam showers and claw foot bathtubs with the inn’s own branded amenities. The Village square contains stone remnants of the original Wilson Mansion. Plans are underway for a 150-room expansion to the resort on parcel of land separate from the existing cottages. Three miles inland off SC 46, the inn’s secluded location adds to its unique charm.
