It was lovely. The room also included a nespresso coffee maker & turn down service included water & wonderful cookies. Unfortunately the fireplace did not work in...

We stayed in the new Montage Inn’s Main building this past weekend with guests from Boston and was very impressed. An electric boat ride on the inland waterway with Captain Trey was spectacular. Highly recommend a dinner at Jessamine on the main level. The service from the entire staff was nothing but exceptional. Making another reservation this week.

My executive team stayed at the Montage Resort for our 2 day retreat. We rented 2 village homes and the setup was perfection. There were 10 of us and the living room was exactly what we needed to conduct our meeting. The staff at the Montage were absolutely wonderful in assisting us with anything we needed.

Just a quick getaway to celebrate a special occasion. What a beautiful facility and made even better with exceptional service. From our personal greeting by Jason, and great service by Thomas and Kyle in the lounge, we were made to feel important and valued. Listening to Martin Lesch on the Steinway grand was another bonus. If you use the spa...

When we travel with our two children, their spouses and our three young grandchildren (2, 3 and 6) we have found it is much better to be together in a home than a bunch of hotel rooms--and the cost usually comparable. In a house we can cook for the kids, watch tv together,etc. Since no one wanted to face the...

First time to this resort nestled along the May River in Bluffton, SC. What a unique property that has been built here. The Staff is first class, the lodging off the charts.

We stayed here in 2013 and booked the same cottage type this month as those rooms are just incredible. This resort is definitely within our top 3 resorts in the US along with Blackberry Farm.

We absolutely loved our time at Palmetto Bluff. The property was gorgeous and had everything you could ever possibly want to do. Our room was beyond amazing - one of the beautiful cottages around the lagoon with a private porch and bikes. The only issue, it was a little hard to figure the place out. While ultimately very helpful, coordinating...

Newly discovered Palmetto Buff, 20,000 acres of a “nature paradise” in South Carolina is to say the least! Montage Palmetto Bluff is quite the hotel and for the first time ever, I realize a resort does not have to be situated on a beach to captivate you. As we strolled up to our guesthouse, adjacent to the main inn, we...
