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.

Pet-Friendly Resort

Canine Ambassadors

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, custom-baked treats and a 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. Our newest members of this beloved program include Finch, a Golden Retriever, and Bodie, a Miniature Sheepadoodle, who have joined our resident cuddly Labrador-mix, Cauley, in spreading joy throughout the Bluff. The Canine Ambassadors’ role is to bring joy to all of our guests with interactive meet and greets.

Traditionally synonymous with Labrador Retrievers, our program now embraces breeds reflecting the diverse preferences of our guests. Finch, named after the native Goldfinch, embodies the spirit of outdoor enthusiasts. Bodie, a favorite among guests of all ages, represents the family-friendly charm found at the Bluff. Cauley, named after nearby Cauley’s Creek, embodies the essence of Palmetto Bluff – a place of serenity and genuine hospitality.

Our loving canines are truly at home in Palmetto Bluff – loving the broad expanse of the Lowcountry land and water.
