Needed a place to get away for a few days and this was the spot. Great views for watching the sun rise and listening to the birds first thing in the mornings. Breakfast was always interesting and wonderful. Spent Valentine's night there and had the greatest dinner of all time. We have no need to look for any other B&B...

We returned to Orchard Inn for Thanksgiving again in 2016 and it was superb. We stayed overnight at the Inn after enjoying our Thanksgiving lunch and had an excellent breakfast the following morning. Visited with a couple we met at the Inn last year and had a delightful time talking about our travels over the past years.

Thank you for joining us again this Thanksgiving, Sharon. It's become a nice tradition. We are delighted that you choose to spend the night, even though you live only 25 minutes away. We hope to see you for dinner again soon.

This is a return visit to Orchard Inn for Thanksgiving. There are so many reasons to stay at the inn but Thanksgiving is very special. We arrived late Wednesday night and opted for a soup and salad instead of a full meal. Newman's Restaurant never disappoints. The hearty bean soup with a nice green salad with apples, feta cheese and...

We have been staying at the Orchard Inn for 10 years and the experience always keeps bringing us back. We spent Thanksgiving Weekend at the Inn for the first time this year and had Thanksgiving dinner there. The food was wonderful and everything was very well done.

We visited the inn for Sunday brunch. It is a classic building with a good view from the dining room. Reservations are required and the brunch closes at 1:00 PM. The brunch is served in three courses. It cost about $30 per person. Service was excellent. The portions were small. The food was tasty, but a little bit less than...

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...

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....

Thank you for your kind words. We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced with slow wifi. Hopefully, by the time you return we will have fiber optic cable installed (as our internet provider has promised to be completed shortly) which will give us 50 times faster wifi speed.

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.

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.
