Inlet Sports Lodge: A Weekend In Murrells Inlet

Recently, we had a couple in their mid-thirties spend some time with us here at Inlet Sports Lodge. Out of curiosity, we sat down with them to find out what they did during their weekend in Murrells Inlet. Perhaps there are a few things that you didn’t even consider during your stay here in the Inlet, so we are here to provide some insight!

“On Friday, we arrived at the Inlet Sports Lodge around 4pm. We were greeted by a welcoming young lady who checked us in and provided us with our room number. Our suite was cozy and felt very much like home. We loved the wood floors and the complimentary coffee and water were a very nice touch! It was also very convenient to have a mini-frig in our room. We enjoy the little things in life!

Once we got all of our clothes put away for the weekend, we headed down to the Marshwalk for dinner. We made reservations at Wahoo’s because we had never eaten there before. The food and ambiance was fantastic. My husband and I both got seafood, because well, we figured we should since we are in the seafood capital of South Carolina! After dinner, we went for a stroll down the MarshWalk to enjoy the beautiful weather and then stopped by Bubba’s Love Shak for a drink. We sat outside since it was so nice and my husband had a cigar (as he always does). So far so good!

Saturday morning we woke up, got ready and headed downstairs only to be met by a wonderful breakfast spread. We ate and then drove down to Georgetown to check out the Hopsewee Plantation. As history buffs, it was extremely interesting to learn about one of the south’s largest rice plantations as well as the birthplace of Thomas Lynch, Jr. who was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. We knew that we wanted to eat lunch while we were there so we made reservations at the River Oak Cottage Tea Room that was on site. They had a delectable assortment of finger sandwiches and tea..just want we needed! After lunch, we drove over to Historic Downtown Georgetown to check out Front Street. There were several boutique shops and cafes to browse. Very cute little area. We spent a few hours there and then decided to head back to the Inlet Sports Lodge to change for dinner.

We had heard good things about the Chive Blossom Cafe from a few locals the night before, so we headed down to Pawleys Island for dinner. The food was outstanding! You could tell that everything was made in house with fresh, local ingredients. It was a nice change of pace from the standard fare that you get along the Grand Strand. After we had our fill, I was in the mood for a drink and my husband wanted another cigar, so we compromised and headed to Bourbon & Burnz for both! The atmosphere was very relaxed, as were the others who were there. It was the perfect nightcap!

Unfortunately our stay ended on Sunday, but we had an absolutely fantastic time! The staff at Inlet Sports Lodge could not have been more accommodating. We will definitely stay here again!”
