Beautiful Cottages in Saluda, NC

Tucked away in the mountains of Saluda just south of Asheville, NC, The Orchard Inn is the perfect Western North Carolina bed and breakfast to come to and get away from it all. Our carefully designed guest rooms, cottages and suites create an oasis to relax and rejuvenate. Enjoy open porches, treetop views, and fresh air. Experience Southern hospitality right at our doorstep!

Each stay in one of our rooms, suites, or cottages comes complete with outstanding amenities, private baths, a pillow menu for the perfect night’s sleep, and more.

Nestled in the foothills of Western North Carolina near Asheville, our bed and breakfast is a historic structure surrounded by the splendor of Mother Nature. Our inviting spa is the perfect way to relax and get away from it all, and our award-winning restaurant, Newman’s, is one of the best restaurants in the region. Enjoy delicious farm-to-table dining options for dinner and a fantastic Sunday brunch! Along with wonderful amenities and accommodations, you can also say “I do” at The Orchard Inn’s elopement and wedding venues. There’s nothing more romantic than getting married against North Carolina’s natural mountain scenery.

If you’re coming from the north or near Asheville, you’ll descend through the lower Blue Ridge Mountains and valleys until you reach our bed and breakfast located just outside the city of Saluda, whose entire downtown area has been designated on the National Register of Historic Places. From the south, you wind from upper Piedmont into the foothills; then, by the scenic by-way, up through the Pacolet River gorge past rocky falls. No matter what way you arrive, the rest of the world falls away as you enter our mountaintop escape on 12 peaceful acres in Saluda. The elegant intimacy and warm hospitality of the historic inn create the perfect atmosphere for a Western North Carolina bed and breakfast.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or to just get away for a while, our North Carolina mountains bed and breakfast in Saluda awaits. Check out all the things to do in here, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about our lodging as you start planning your trip!
