Though officially established in 1928, Cabin Bluff’s long and storied history starts more than a century before. After experiencing great success cultivating Sea Island Cotton, the Floyd family founded The Camden Hunt Club in 1827 on the property now known as Cabin Bluff. Often credited as being the first members-only hunting club in the US, the club hosted hunting parties, shooting competitions, horse and dug-out boat races (with purses upwards of $10,000), as well as balls and dinners for the region’s prominent plantation owners and their guests.
Soon after the Civil War the Floyd family abandoned their grand lifestyle and the lands reverted to great forests. The forests were part of extensive logging operations until they were purchased by automobile pioneer Howard E. Coffin in 1927.
Mr. Coffin founded Cabin Bluff in 1928 as a world-class hunting and fishing destination for wealthy southerners and northeasterners who sought escape from life’s daily pressures. He envisioned Cabin Bluff as a perfect combination of simple pleasures, with no loss of luxury or comfort. During his ownership Cabin Bluff garnered a respected reputation as host to Presidents, wealthy industrialists and distinguished sporting enthusiasts from around the world.
Virtually everywhere at Cabin Bluff, history is present. You’ll see a century of moments suspended in time through photographs, decades-old books and treasured artifacts. Perhaps the most startling sight is a well-preserved 13-foot alligator mounted overhead in the lodge, present since 1930.
Cabin Bluff to this day retains a rough-hewn quality, yet has not relinquished its standing as a destination built upon simple elegance and attention to service and enjoyment. The retreat is a warm and welcoming host for any corporate retreat, customer trip, or family gathering. Specializing in groups smaller than 40, events at Cabin Bluff are exclusive, uncomplicated and as genuine as the historic property itself.
