This place is a gem tucked almost at the top of the Saluda grade. Do not drive by. Impeccable service, gorgeous setting and an absolutely delicious brunch menu. $24.95 per person. We started with a champagne cocktail (not included in the ppp) and dove into the menu: choice of lentil soup with caramelised onions and a swirl of créme fraiche... More

Many slogans promise you a restful, relaxing, recharging retreat. As soon as we arrived on Friday evening the fireplace had a log on, and low piano music playing in the background. Marc and Marrianne are absolutely wonderful hosts. They greet you by name and treat you as if you live there. This is totally worth the drive up from Florida... More

We booked The Orchard Inn not knowing that the weather was going to turn icy. We thought of not going but we did and it was the MOST relaxing weekend I've had in a long time. Calm, personable, warm, inviting, happy, enjoyable, and most of all NO TV! There are not enough wonderful adjectives to describe the owners, so I... More

I have reviewed the Orchard Inn a couple of times, and had decided that continuing to do so would be redundant. Here I am again. On our first visit (this was our fifth), I gave Marianne a list of foods to which I have an intolerance. (I can eat all of them, but have to wait four days before I... More

Always enjoy Marc and MarianvBlazar as hosts at the Orchard Inn.The Restaurant named Neuman's after the Inns cat just gets better and better. The multicourse dinner from 8:00 to 10:00 has us ready for champagne and the ball drop on the widescreen TV in the basement rec room. Football fans enjoy the games during the weekend. A roaring fire and... More

This was our first time staying at the inn and my husband has a wonderful service dog that goes with us everywhere. We stayed in their Twin Poplar cottage which was divine. We arrived later in the evening and Marc was there to show us around and show us how to use the fireplace and to let us know when... More

What a charming way to spend the weekend before Christmas! Our daughter joined us to relax and celebrate the holiday season at the Orchard Inn. We enjoyed the Dickens Dinner with a full dining room, a nice menu and good food, and a fun reading of a very abridged CHRISTMAS CAROL. It was charming and despite the misty, cool days,... More

We've stayed at the Inn numerous times and the December Dicken's Dinner has become a family tradition. Marc and Marianne are the perfect hosts - they make everyone feel like family. The setting is beautiful, the food delicious and the beds comfortable - what more can you ask for ? We normally spend our time in main room reading and... More

Spent a couple of nights at the Orchard Inn recently with my wife and mother. Superb service and excellent accommodations. We stayed in one of the cottages that had a wonderful gas log fireplace and great views off the deck. The Inn is very comfortable and the hosts are experienced and gracious. Our breakfast was served on a glassed-in dining... More

We have stayed with Mary Ann and Marc a number of times now and it is always just perfect. This is a mountain top spot with wonderful views, crisp clean air, lots to do if you have to leave to find amusement, and its sparkling clean and tidy inside and out. We have stayed in the main lodge and in... More
