The Charles Street Garden Suite is a great alternative to a hotel. The suite has a small kitchenette and a nice sitting area. The sitting area is in front of a large bay window that looks out into a garden with lots of birds. There is also a small covered porch outside the door where you can enjoy the garden. Sherry, one of the owners, is a great hostess. She provides breakfast in the suite at whichever time you select. One day I had French toast, another day it was scrambled eggs, and the third day was pancakes. Each breakfast was served with fresh fruit and OJ. Sherry makes sure that she is not intrusive but is available to provide whatever is needed to make your stay comfortable. I mentioned that the suite is quirky, and that's because the back half (bathroom area and kitchenette) has no windows. The windows are on the sides and front because the suite is on the lower level of the owners' home. The parking space is also a little tight and difficult to find when you first arrive. The rate for this suite is very reasonable, and the quirkiness is charming. You can also walk to the tiny downtown area for dinner or shopping. I enjoyed my stay and would stay here again if I am in the area.

The owners of the Charles St. are very welcoming and manage a very well appointed bed and breakfast. I highly recommend staying here. The only quirk is that they only take cash or checks, but that does help keep costs down.

The breakfast provided was absolutely wonderful. They brought down French Toast and bacon with fresh squeezed orange juice.

The gardens are very nice to walk through and offer a broad selection of local flowers and plants.

Plan to stay the next time in the area.

The Hoovers took us in for one night on very short notice, so we were appreciative before arriving. Upon arriving, we were then also delighted. Though the weather was quite cold, their suite was cozy and comfortable and the owners are terrific hosts. Walter greeted us and was full of information about the town and surrounding area, and Sherry made a lovely breakfast for us the following morning. It was a quick trip, but we were able to relax and enjoy Saluda during our stay. Even in winter, their garden is a sight to see--as is the beautiful, historic church next door. We hope to return in the spring and look forward to staying here again.

I stayed here for one night. I wish I could have stayed for two nights. I loved loved loved all the greenery outside the window and the birds/bird feeder. The noise of the fountain outside could be heard in the suite. it feels very secluded even tho it is just a block or two from the town's main street. Everything was in good working order. It was very quaint. I would not recommend more than 2 people in the suite. Kitchen area is small -- galley type -- but that is not a negative. Bathroom is very small but that was not a negative either. I have already recommended this location, and would stay again. Everything was very very clean, too.

This property is not for everyone, but my husband and I love it! The quarters are a little tight in the kitchen area, but the appointments and surroundings more than make up for it. We loved being surrounded by their garden and bird sanctuary and spent some restful time in the sitting area and the garden just bird watching and reading. We visited some of our favorite local areas as well: Connemara, Pearson's Falls, Flat Rock, Hendersonville, and downtown Saluda.

Pictures on the website as well as those posted by another reviewer are spot on. They cannot express just how nice it is to be there, though.

Walter and Sherry are superb hosts: available without being intrusive. There's one great casual restaurant in town (the Purple Onion, closed on Tuesdays), but other than that we tended to go to nearby towns--15-20 minute trips or to prepare a light picnic meal in the suite.

We're returning in September and just can't wait.

Room tip: There's only the one wonderful suite.
