In Memory of Captain Herb Rennard

Written by Palmetto Bluff

A Charlestonian and former commercial fisherman, Captain Herb Rennard had a vast knowledge of the sea, and he loved his role as boat captain of the Grace.

Upon hearing of Captain Herb Rennard's passing earlier this month, we went back through years of photo and video footage and realized Herb “starred” in so much of our marketing.

Four years ago, filmmaker Peyton Lea, documented the year-long restoration of Grace, traveling back and forth to North Carolina with Herb and Captain Ed. Peyton pulled together this beautiful tribute to Herb.

Sail on in peace, Captain Herb.

Stay for a little or stay for a lifetime.

From charming rooms, suites and cottages at Montage Palmetto Bluff to majestic homes in Wilson and Moreland villages that pay homage to the region’s rich heritage, all it takes is a short stay to create the stories that last a lifetime.
