Montage Merit Badges

Catch a fish, roast a s’more, hike a trail, spot some local wildlife.

Children who master these activities (among many others) during their visit will earn exciting merit badges for each. Not only will participants be able to return home with evidence of their adventures in the form of a creative pin, those who complete all 12 achievements will also receive a special prize and ‘Gilbert the Gator’ status!

This unique program gives children an opportunity to be the masters of their own experiences and, with the help of their take-home merit badges, relish those memories long after leaving Montage Palmetto Bluff.

Pet-Friendly Resort

At Montage Palmetto Bluff , we understand that pets are part of the family and embrace four-legged guests, going beyond simple pet-friendly rooms with custom canine experiences. With luxurious beds, fashionable accessories and toy gifts, custom-baked treats and a drool-worthy pet cuisine menu created especially for your furry friend,  it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about traveling with a pet.

With 20,000 acres at the Bluff, there’s plenty of green space for dogs to play and run, and with miles of trails to explore, there’s no reason to leave your canine companion behind.

Additionally, a family favorite of Montage Palmetto Bluff is our Canine Ambassador program, featuring our resident cuddly rescue pup, Cauley, from the Hilton Head Humane Association. The Canine Ambassador’s role is to bring joy to all of our guests with meet and greets, where Cauley looks forward to interacting with everyone and posing for pictures. Our loving canine is truly at home in Palmetto Bluff – loving the broad expanse of the Lowcountry land and water.

Remember the childhood thrill of hiding in a wooden shelter among the branches, enjoying a bird’s-eye view of the neighborhood? Relive that excitement at the treehouse in Wilson Village, located on Mount Pelia Road diagonal from RT’s Market, and at the treehouse tucked along the marsh at Moreland. The treehouses and hand-crafted furniture were designed and built by the father-son duo of Wayne and Heath Edwards. The structures wrap around live oaks without touching any part of the tree. The Mount Pelia treehouse has multiple entry and exit points, including a wooden boardwalk, a rope ladder and a metal slide. Two hammocks and a swing set sit nearby for those who need a rest. The grassy, shady setting, with the Village Lagoon only a few yards away, exudes tranquility. The Moreland treehouse provides spectacular views of the surrounding waterways and wilderness for those agile and willing enough to reach its 5-story observation deck.
