Y’all have probably already fallen in love with the Southern Weddings Honey List at this point, and I can’t blame you. We are constantly abuzz here in the office about the fabulous honeymoon destinations we’ve already been to, and always dreaming up new spots to visit! It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. Today, I’m thrilled to tell you more about my trip to Cabin Bluff Retreat!
I had the pleasure of driving down to Georgia to spend a few glorious days at Cabin Bluff Retreat with my boyfriend, Scott. Cabin Bluff is nestled on the Georgia/Florida border with a direct view of gorgeous Cumberland Island. The resort is situated on 24,000 acres of land (imagine 100 average-sized golf courses pushed together… it has even more space then that!) so it is about as private and peaceful as can be. As we drove down the gated two mile road to the resort, I could feel any tension from the real world melt away. Only 40 people may stay at the resort at any time, and we were lucky enough to share our time with only fourteen other wedding professionals!
Our luxury cabin was pure heaven, y’all! Each cabin has a grand fireplace, a kitchen (with a fridge already stocked with any beverage you could desire), and plush, comfortable beds. Fun fact: Cabin Bluff used to be President Coolidge’s favorite hunting retreat, and each room is fit for a presidential getaway. After checking into our gorgeous cabin, we went to an oyster roast where we had the opportunity to meet and mingle with the other guests. We were also invited to sign up for the next day’s activities, which included fishing trips and clay shooting excursions. Talk about fun! We signed up for a boat tour of the surrounding inter-coastal waterway as well as clay shooting.
The oyster roast was followed by a delicious supper underneath the stars. Yes, it was December! Yes, it was warm! Yep, those stars looked magical! I swear, it was one of the finest dinners I had ever had the pleasure of eating.
On our inter-coastal waterway boat trip the next morning, we were truly immersed in all of the fabulous wildlife that Georgia has to offer. We glimpsed a few wild ponies on Cumberland Island, and watched as dolphins played alongside our boat. After returning from our boat trip, we immediately set off to shoot clay pigeons. It was my first time shooting a shot gun, and I have to say, I’m not a bad shot, y’all! I highly suggest scheduling some clay shooting time. It was an absolute delight! And check me out:
Our time at Cabin Bluff sped by, and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to meet so many talented wedding professionals, especially in such a beautiful setting. The whole way back to North Carolina, I kept wishing we could turn back and permanently settle into an idyllic life at Cabin Bluff.
Cabin Bluff’s excellent staff, the variety of amazing outdoor experiences underneath some stunning Spanish Moss trees, and the gorgeous rustic-meets-luxury setting makes it a prime Honeymoon destination. To read more about Cabin Bluff, be sure to hop on over to the Honey List here!
