The heart of hospitality.
The first village at Palmetto Bluff, Wilson represents the culmination of years of study and research into the small coastal towns of the South and the characteristics that made them distinct. Wilson Village offers a wide range of experiences, river access and activities, a gourmet market and signature shops and restaurants all open to the public and within easy walking distance of the Village Green.
The Spirit of Palmetto Bluff
The architecture in Wilson Village embodies the spirit of Palmetto Bluff — it is the marker for what all of Palmetto Bluff should aspire to be. It carries with it the weight of being the original village and captures the vision in the most pristine way: relaxed, unbundled, comfortable, authentically detailed, regionally responsive and blended in among the trees. You cannot get a better example of what Lowcountry architecture should be than in Wilson Village. As you go out from the Village core to other neighborhoods, the style may shift slightly, allowing different interpretations of Lowcountry.
Even the most finicky foodies find much to love in Wilson Village. From the special occasion dazzle of Canoe Club to the casual community favorites and river views served up at Buffalos, each dish is designed to please. You’ll find impossibly fresh meat and seafood at River House, sweet salvation through the ice creams of Melt, and the perks of great coffee at Buzz. And for Happy Hour in a speakeasy setting, revisit the past with the thoroughly modern mixologists at Hush.
There’s no passport needed to pick up something chic and unique at The Paris Market, just one of the distinctive retail venues in Wilson Village. FLOW Gallery + Workshop invites local aesthetes to peruse the Lowcountry-inspired works of local artisans. At Palmetto Bluff Outfitters, men’s and women’s sportswear, and outdoor apparel and gear accessorize the active lifestyle of our residents. And RT’s Market echoes the one-stop-shop appeal of the classic general store, offering everything from groceries and gourmet specialties, to wine, books, novelties–even gas.Learn More Learn More
