We first stayed at The Orchard Inn 8 years ago for a wedding. We have been coming back on a regular basis since then. The Inn is always extremely clean, the food is excellent and Marc and Marianne and all the staff are always gracious and attentive. Whether it is sitting on the porch or sitting by a cozy wood...

We loved our stay at the Orchard Inn! We rented one of the cabins for just the two of us, and it was very romantic! Cozy, with a fireplace and comfy bed. Lovely. Beautiful backyard views which are wonderful in the fall. It was nice and quiet, and extremely clean and well-maintained. We also loved spending time relaxing during happy... More

I went to the Inn for a personal retreat for relaxation and reflection. The Inn was the perfect venue for both - the front porch swing and rockers was my choice for reading, studying, rejoicing in solitude and peace. My room was comfortable, the innkeepers and their staff were gracious, their pets were entertaining, the food was delicious. I felt... More

Business colleagues and I needed a retreat 'center' to brainstorm and plan work projects, but we didn't want the hotel environment. We "retreated" (literally) to this quaint, secluded venue in Saluda, renting one of the cottages. Fabulous is the only word to describe our time there: scenary (from our deck) that overlooked the mtns.; breakfast prepared by Marianne; morning walks... More

This was our first time at the Orchard Inn. We were pleasantly greeted when we arrived by Newman and promptly checked in. We were then given a warm welcome and tour of the Inn. Our four course dinner was fantastic. My pork tenderloin with mushrooms was the best I have ever had, and the service was excellent. Views from the... More

On my most recent trip to The Orchard Inn I stayed in a cottage with my mother to celebrate her 89th birthday! It was relaxing and comfortable in every way.....even had a fireplace to take off the evening chill! The deck was a wonderful place to relax before dinner and look at the mountains in the distance. The special meal... More

We have stayed at the Orchard several times and it is awesome .. absolutely our favorite place. The accommodations are excellent and the food is incomparable. We recommend it to all our friends. Love it for special occasions or if we just need to get away from whatever for a while :)

We stay at The Orchard Inn each time we are in the area visiting our daughter. Marc and Marianne always make us feel as though we are visiting family. Rocco and Murray are at the front door to greet us and all the staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. We feel relaxed from the moment we arrive. We especially enjoy... More

The Orchard Inn is about a half hour drive from where we live, but it may as well have been in a different world - a delightful world. We went for a get-away weekend to reduce the stress of our weekday jobs and lives - and it certainly did that. If only we could have stayed longer. From the moment... More

Our short, but incredibly sweet 12 hours at the Orchard Inn were amazing. From the moment we walked in the door we were made to feel at home and comfortable. We met two other couples there, and enjoyed sampling the fabulous wine list and local beers out on the back porch. Our rooms were comfortable and suited the casual lifestyle... More
