The best part about staying at Montage Palmetto Bluff is their incredible private property that surrounds you and all of the possibilities it brings. With a lagoon running through one side of the property and the May River on the other, a bird sanctuary right in the middle, a small village with shops and restaurants and miles of trails throughout, it will be difficult to find yourself without anything to do while here.
Quick Tip: For just a few dollars a day, you can rent a bike during your entire stay and have it as your main mode of transportation - even at night with its little light placed right on the basket. When you're too tired or tipsy to peddle, just phone the front desk and a golf cart will be right around to take you wherever you want to go and they'll even bring your bike home for you.
Now, I'll take you through how we spent our perfect days here, from waking up early to take photos of the sunrise to finishing off our evenings roasting marshmallows over an open fire with an adult beverage in hand.
Wake Up Early to See the Sun Rise over the River
If you're a picture junkie like me, it's all about getting the right shot and there's no better time to capture the beauty of the Lowcountry than right at first light. It's painful when the alarm goes off, but I've never once regretted the forever photos I have when I look back. So just before 6am, I load up my bike with all my gear and head over to the river dock for the first hour of the day... if you are paying close attention I said "I" and not "we", Colin most definitely refuses to join me on these little sunrise excursions.
