Description: Just 15 minutes from I-95, our Palm Key community nestles on a marsh island near the headwaters of the Broad River. Knowles Island (formerly Deloss) is a Lowcountry masterpiece. At 350 acres, Knowles is the largest island of the area's chain of salt marsh islands, or Keys. Historically part of Roseland Plantation, Knowles Island today is serene and natural: salt breezes waft through Spanish moss hanging from massive live oaks. Today, 750 acres of protected salt marsh flora and aquatic inhabitants surround us. We are, in fact, spoiled: over the course of the year, a visitor might encounter 250 species of birds in the area. Palm Key’s nature trails give visitors the opportunity to encounter all sorts of wildlife in the nearby woods.

Room amenities: Road Scholars share beautifully decorated 2, 3, 4, or 5-bedroom cottages, all with private baths. Wide porches invite scholars to relax with a book in the swing or chat with others over drinks. Inside, the open floor plans encourage conversation and visiting. Each air-conditioned cottage has a friendly, open living room and full-sized kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave, and coffee maker (bring your favorite coffee). Cottages have washers and dryers, so Scholars can pack light if they bring laundry soap! Large bedrooms have two comfortable queen-sized beds and private bath with plush towels. And if you blow dry your hair, you’ll want to bring a hair dryer. All cottages have ceiling fans, comfortable furniture, local art, and large windows. Palm Key’s cottages have been designed to encourage visitors to look out—to live oaks covered in Spanish moss, to the sun rising over the Broad River marsh, to birds flying over the pond. Note: Most cottages have steps, but if you have special needs, please contact us. Our cottages have no TV’s or telephones to lure you away to the world you left behind. Wireless internet is intermittent. Not all cell phones will have reception throughout Palm Key; Verizon appears to have the fewest dropped calls. Contact LifeTides Institute (843-726-5565 or jjschatz46@gmail.com) if you have special needs.

Facility amenities: Ours is a casual community focused on the peaceful enjoyment of nature. Arranged around our private paved-and-gravel drive are luxury-home style cottages that offer a great place to relax after a full day of activities. Wide porches invite scholars to unwind with a book in the swing or chat with others over drinks. Inside, the open floor plans encourage conversation and visiting. Delicious meals are served buffet-style in one of the cottages, and special dietary needs are sure to be accommodated. Preference is given to organic and local ingredients. We specialize in lowcountry cooking, serve up lots of vegetables and salads, and try to keep in mind that active scholars have healthy appetites but often have to watch their salt intake and cholesterol. Vegetarians are well taken care of. These accommodations are anything but rustic--scholars come again and again just to stay here and enjoy our food! Note: those who wish to enjoy adult beverages while here may wish to bring those when they come, as Palm Key is a number of miles from shops and stores.

Smoking policy: No
Smoking policies vary by facility. During all group events and activities, smoking is prohibited.

Additional nights before: Discounted from regular rate.
We would love to have you stay before or after your program to enjoy more of what the Palm Key community and the lowcountry have to offer. We can make suggestions of activities (in fact, we may be able to arrange a special event for a group of interested Scholars), or you may just enjoy resting up. Either way, we'd be glad to assist you and hope you'll consider extending your stay. Contact LifeTides Institute: 843-726-5565 or jjschatz46@gmail.com for dates, pricing, and arrangements.
