Beautiful setting and delicious breakfasts. I'm just sorry we were not there on a day dinner was served. Maryanne was especially helpful with suggestions of things to do in the area. We hope to return. Lots of first-class touches in accommodations and service.

Over 50 stays at the Orchard Inn, and many more to come! We are so comfortable and pampered there. The surroundings are beautiful in all seasons. There are usually the strains of relaxing music and mouth-watering aromas to please the senses. The included breakfast is varied, delicious, and prepared largely from local sources. Dinners are definitely gourmet, and there are... More

Great inn and great location. Far enough away from tourist areas to forget about the rest of the world but close enough to get anywhere you need to go Saluda is an absolutely charming town with two great little restaurants. Innkeepers are real pros who know how to make you happy....and breakfast ain't bad either

A great relaxing bed and breakfast a short distance from Asheville NC and Greenville SC. Marianne and Mark Blazar are wonderful hosts. The breakfasts are delightful and delicious and Marianne's recipes often feature locally produced items. Dinner when available is memorable and the service is friendly and gracious. Mark has a nice selection of wine to accompany the dinners. The... More

My partner and I spent two nights at the Orchard Inn in early Spring and what a good time we had! Absolutely everything was perfect...the room was very clean and comfortable, as was the beautiful common room. The small library was well stocked with a surprisingly good selection of books, games and puzzles. The views were beautiful, as were the... More

We stayed at the Orchard Inn for the weekend. We are pretty particular about things, but both of us could not have been more pleased. Clean and comfortable. Picturesque. The breakfasts included with the stay were memorable. I highly recommend this location.

We loved our time away in the North Carolina mountains because of the gracious and charming Orchard Inn. The innkeepers, Marc and Marianne, and their manager, Sally, make sure your stay is all that you hope it will be. Our weather was a little cold and rainy, which was actually perfect for settling in to our cottage with a warm... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located just 30 mi. south of Asheville in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the rest of the world melts away the moment you enter the long winding driveway and approach our elegant mountain top escape, comfortably nestled on 12 peaceful acres. As you walk up the front steps, graciously framed in boxwood hedges, the cozy rockers on the Antebellum style porch are calling. Enter the open and airy living room with it's great stone fireplace, and you immediately feel at home. The Inn was originally built in 1926 by the Brotherhood of Southern Railroad as a summer retreat for members' families. Transformed into a B&B in 1981 it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, member of Select Registry as well as Chaine des Rotisseurs. Fine dining restaurant serving dinner Thurs-Sat. 14 rooms tastefully decorated in period pieces & antiques all with luxurious linens. ... more   less
