We like to break our trip up on the way to Kiawah island and are always looking for B&B's . What we found here in Saluda was a beautiful inn nestled in the Smokey Mountains . It was on one of the more beautiful , secluded properties that I have ever seen . The town itself had some neat art... More

Truly adorable. We stayed in a room that faced the front of the house, when I go back (and I will) I want a room that is in the back and overlooks the mountains so I can see the sunrise. Don't go there expecting to have wifi, they do have it but it does not work up in the room.... More

My friend and I went to Orchard for a working meeting. Spending must of our time on one of the outdoor areas or porches was really idealic. Even though it was work related, I returned home refreshed and rejuvenated.

Returning to the Orchard Inn is always a pleasure. Marc and Marianne and staff go out of their way to welcome you and to make your stay enjoyable. Rooms are unique and always in great shape. Morning breakfasts are delicious. Unlike many bed and breakfast inns, Orchard Inn offers variety and flexibility in their morning offerings.

Standing on the deck at the rear of our cottage, I see the apple trees espaliered below on the lowest level of the terraced garden, and near the beehive. We go to Sunday breakfast and I have the palatschinken, which is stuffed with apples recently picked. We enjoy watching the goldfinches, hummingbirds, doves, and other birds flitting around the several... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to dinner at the Orchard Inn in Saluda and we were not disappointed. It was a prix fixed four course meal and each course was better than the next. The first course was organic greens from the chefs on-site garden with goat cheese and a watermelon rice wine vinegar. Very nice portions. Second course... More

I wanted to try someplace I had never been and Saluda was on my list. What a delight and surprise! Tucked back on a tree lined road, this 1920's inn with wrap around porches, lovely plantings and quiet spaces to just sit and relax magically appeared. We arrived after a rain storm and was greeted by the delightful staff offering... More

This is a sweet looking place in a beautiful area. Very formal. The scones at Newmans are amazing but you have to make sure to ask for them because we weren't given them automatically on the first day. I got this as a getaway for my family especially my nieces to make some fun memories. Unfortunately this is not a... More

The Orchard Inn is elegant and cozy. The main house has nice spacious sitting areas, and a library. The room we had was in the inn on the second floor and has spectacular mountain view. The innkeepers Marianne and Marc were welcoming and helpful with suggestions for activities - we visited the local winery and a nice bakery in Saluda.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located just 30 mi. south of Asheville where the foothills meet 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
