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 mountaintop 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.

We stayed at The Orchard Inn for two nights in July and really enjoyed the place. We had a very nice room right off the lobby with a private entrance right onto the gorgeous porch. We slept on the softest sheets I think I have ever slept on. The setting is very private. What really makes the stay exceptional is the staff. Everyone seemed very engaged with making you feel at home and just naturally friendly. We loved playing with those sweet dogs and cats. I will miss them. My only regret is that we did not get to eat dinner there but that gives us a reason to return.

We celebrated my wife's 50th birthday with several other couples last weekend and it could not have gone any better. Jane at the front desk helped organize the weekend with great recommendations and was so friendly the whole way through. The owners kept things going with great hospitality. Mark even served as our photographer for some great pics outside the Inn! The employees all made sure safety was the first priority as well. We stayed in the Laurel cabin which I believe is the largest one and others stayed in the Inn. Everyone enjoyed their stay. One person got a spa treatment and said it was awesome. The food was great. I would highly recommend the brunch which is all first class. The Inn and its surroundings are beautiful and the people and the two boxers were so much fun! I highly recommend the Orchard Inn for a perfect weekend getaway. You won't be disappointed.

We were scheduled to host 5 cabins of family on a river cruise in France= Covid cancel. cancelled also was our domestic cruise through New England same for a B&B in Highlands= Covid Hot spot. Marc and Marianne offer a professional and gracious hospitable premium hotel stay in the mountains. We felt we had found the perfect place to Mark our grand anniversary. The bed is firm, the sheets the softest, the rooms are spotless and outfitted to perfection. The staff is warm and welcoming and anxious to provide the best service possible Spa service was a welcome addition to this break from home quarantine. Cannot say enough positive things about this wonderful family and the service they offer.

What a relaxing weekend! The hosts, Marc and Marianne and their son Adam were exceptional in every area of hospitality. Very friendly staff! Our anniversary dinner at Newman's restaurant was outstanding and picture perfect. Dori and Vickie greeted us each morning with warm smiles and hot coffee as we enjoyed a delicious breakfast and the incredible mountain view. We highly recommend the Orchard Inn!

This was our first visit and was outstanding! We stayed 3 nights and accommodations were perfect. We had dinner 2 nights with Chef Aaron and the meals were superb - definitely worth a trip back even if not staying on property. Hosts Marc & Marianne very accommodating and Adam their son took very good care of us. Highly recommend for a nice quiet and relaxing get away!
