Orchard Inn has wonderful food and is a very inn with lovely cabins and rooms.

The food and service is excellent in a small dining room with a beautiful view. Nice ambiance and an excellent menu. And Saluda is a lovely small town with the emphasis on small.

Great service, great views, great atmosphere, and really great food. This is a hidden gem, near the quaint town of Saluda, North Carolina. We haven't stay at the Orchard Inn (yet) but we love the casual but elegant atmosphere. It's classy and cozy place.

We normally have breakfast and dinner at the Inn. They use local ingredients at much as possible. The meals are always excellent and the service is efficient and friendly.

Marianne, co-owner of this bed and breakfast, makes a fabulous breakfast for her guests. The meal is eloquently presented; the amount of food leaves one satisfied; the taste surpasses any restaurant in which I've recently dined; and service is top-notch. I look forward to returning!

We stayed at the Inn for a get-away weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Our honeymoon was spent at Country Inns in New England so we wanted to find an Inn near our home in North Carolina that was more than a B&B - and the Orchard Inn was definitely that. We enjoyed a delicious four-course dinner with complimentary champagne for... More
