"Beautiful large porches surround the lodge, and it has a great lawn with plenty of seating and fire pits overlooking the May River." This Lowcountry property has cottages with hipped metal roofs, brick chimneys, cushioned window seats, and beds with crisp white linens. The screened-in porches are "so lovely for reading and lounging, you could sleep out there." "The food is the biggest thing holding them back. The wine list is great, but the dishes are mediocre and expensive." "Staff truly take pleasure in serving."
