This past weekend Josh and I had a little “babymoon”.  Lilly went to her grandparent’s house for the weekend and we got some much needed r&r.  Friday night we stayed here in Charleston and had a date night which included seeing Dracula at the Dock Street Theater.

And then Saturday morning we headed 2 hours south to Palmetto Bluff.

Palmetto Bluff = Best Place On Earth

I mean that.  It’s my new favorite place ever.  I have wanted to visit Palmetto Bluff for about 5 years now but just haven’t gotten around to doing it.  Something about spending money to go have a “lowcountry style” weekend when we already live in the lowcountry just kept us from making the trip.  But thank goodness we finally did because I. am. in. love.

If I were planning a wedding, I think this little chapel at the resort would top the list!

There’s a reason why they won #1 Hotel in the US/Canada by Travel & Leisure in 2010.  Yes, number one.  They’re resort – perfection, service – perfection, amenities – perfection.  Here’s some pictures of the little cottage we stayed in.

And these bikes were there waiting for us!  So fun.
And a large screened in porch with a perfect view of the lagoon.

Absolutely gorgeous.  After settling in we hopped in a canoe and Josh did a little fishing while I relaxed and read some magazines.

And look!  He caught one :)

Thank goodness (you know how men can be… ha).  The rest of the afternoon we rode around on our bikes exploring the resort and then relaxed in the cottage.  We had a wonderful dinner at the River House and then finished the night outside roasting s’mores.  They have three firepits and provide all of the supplies.  BLISS.

We woke up Sunday morning like this.

And headed to the spa for massages.  It was fabulous!  As was the lunch we had after (we split a pimento cheese bacon burger & short rib sliders).  Palmetto Bluff is such an amazing place, I can’t wait for the day I can go back.  I highly recommend you visit.  It was the perfect spot for our little babymoon.

  17. That place looks perfect! So relaxing, yet you can be outdoors and enjoy a bikeride or fishing. I’m definitely showing this to my hubby! and thank goodness your husband caught a fish! My husband is like that with fishing or when college football doesn’t go the way he wanted it to. haha Looks like you had a fantastic babymoon!! So glad to hear it.

  18. That does sound absolutely perfect…relaxing in a gorgeous setting is already good enough for me…but great food and S’MORES??? HEAVEN. (c: And I definitely know why it was great that Josh caught a fish…that could have been a deal-breaker right there! (c:
