Saluda Mountain Lodge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This is a must stay motel if you are in the Saluda area. The view of Saluda River Gorge is breath taking and the rooms are very clean. The owners are very warm and personable and helped make my stay very memorable.

Stunning view! Very nice, clean rooms. Super nice family owned lodge, reminds me of the feel you get in the national parks out west. Stumbled on to it when in town for a horse show. Will be my first choice from now on!

Room Tip: All would be good

We had a great time celebrating our anniversary. View in both directions, especially out back, was awesome. Mist rising from the Green River Gorge looked like cotton candy. So Peaceful!! Wayne and Wendy, the owners, are the nicest people. They made sure that all our needs, even one that was totally out of the ordinary, were taken care of. Our room was very comfortable and spotless. And, this is important, very reasonably priced for the spectacular view and the friendliness. We will visit again.

This Lodge has got the perfect location, which is unsurpassed in view and solitude. Our 15 member group has been coming here every summer since 2009. We have watched over the past three years running as Wendy and Wayne have continuously improved the amenities and rooms at this beautiful location. From the smallest details like chocolates for guests to the tastefully and individually decorated rooms the Saluda Mountain Lodge has got it all. The back terrace overlooks 100's of acres of pristine forest in the Smokey Mountains where in the morning, the mist creeps up the valleys and after dark you can enjoy a fire in the water feature and gaze off into the wilderness and sky.

Of particular importance to my wife and me is the fact that in their most recent inspection they received a 100! (You won't see that too often in the cookie cutter motels along the Interstate system.) We will be back in 2013 for sure!

I'm glad we found this place! The motel was apparently built in the 70's and completely remodeled several years ago. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable, and included refridgerator and microwave. Set on top of a hill, the views into the valley below were amazing. It was quite relaxing watching the sun set, and later, stargazing, from the Adirondack chairs in the motel's "backyard."

I was referred to this mountain lodge by another hotel manager! If you want to avoid the big box hotel - and experience a place that is local, clean, friendly and reasonable then this is the place for you. Each room has a back door that opens up to a beautiful mountain view, where the owners and operators, Wendy and Wayne Auman and family, invite guests to sit around a fire pit in comfortable chairs to enjoy the view and meet fellow travelers. It is in a convenient location off the interstate, but situated in a secluded spot, away from the hustle and bustle of most interstate exits. The rooms were cozy, simple, clean and quiet and the hosts were wonderful!

I booked this for a large group. In fact, we used the entire motel! Wendy and Wayne helped us in every way possible, making it the best place for us to socialize and have as a base for our weekend wildflower outings. What a view from the back..and the evening fire pit added to our evenings!

There are no frills here; you will just get a clean, pleasant place to stay and great people to ask about the area. It is close to so many possible hikes and outings in the area. Vacationers who like nature will appreciate this motel.

The owners worked with our group for almost a year in planning, and they helped us discover hikes and place to visit that we would not have found without hours on the internet. Thanks, guys!
