We came for a short tour a few months ago. I liked this place and wanted to get married here. Beautiful and quiet and just adorable. But I am getting a bit nervous as my wedding is coming up. Orchard Inn seems to be prone to miscommunication and missed communication. I emailed them stating our wish to use their officiant.... More

We had a family emergency and had to fly back to Australia earlier than planned. This was the first time in several trips to the United States that we have had to change plans, and unfortunately, it meant that we were unable to spend two nights at the Orchard Inn. Marc and Marianne were extremely understanding and accomodating during this... More

The staff was great and the room was very nice. The breakfast included with the room was outstanding every morning with different selections each morning. This is a quiet very private location and we are glad we choose it.

Be adventurous - Climb the "Saluda Grade"! all it takes is "a few miles with lots of smiles" as you travel North out of Tryon, NC on US RT176 - that's where you'll find the signpost & turn-out for the Orchard Inn (Saluda, NC). A genuine stately, "Southern" Antebellum structure sitting amidst some of the most scenic surroundings the Eastern... More

The Orchard Inn is a lovely place that is ideal for business meetings: the porch was perfect for our team meeting, overlooking the gardens and the scenic mountains. We also spent some time on the back patio, getting fresh air and fresh thoughts. The breakfast was so yummy, and lunch was great, too. I highly recommend staying at the Orchard... More

If you could dream of B&B perfection, this is what it would be! You couldn't get a better breakfast at a 5 Star hotel! Even the menu is printed and personalized daily. A great nature walk, unbelievable selection of books to peruse, great porch to relax with a glass of wine and your book, etc.. Marc and Marianne, your hosts,... More

For my wife and I, Orchard Inn turned out to be the perfect place to stay when we visited the Biltmore Estate; its panoramic view of the surrounding mountains complemented the peacefulness of the Biltmore gardens. Maryanne and Marc, the inn keepers, are most gracious and interesting hosts. Rocco and Murray, boxers as in dogs, and Newman and Edward, cats,... More

If you're staying near Asheville. This is worth the additional 20 minutes out of Asheville. We almost want to be selfish and not spread the word, as occupancies will go through the roof and we won't be able to get a room. Where do we start....THE VIEWS. Very quiet, clean home. Delicious breakfast. Spacious front & back porches for impeccable... More

My wife, of 38 years and I visited this WONDERFUL inn as an anniversary gift to ourselves. All of the previous reviews are right on target, this is a fabulous place to get away from it all. No need to repeat all that has been written but, if you are into B&Bs this should be on your list of must... More
