What Kind of Romantic Getaway in North Carolina Will You Have?

Walkway down to the SpaFor the Relaxed Couple

We have unofficially named Orchard Inn as the most relaxing place in North Carolina, and when you stay here, you will see why. The fresh mountain air brightens and calms the senses and clears the mind to refresh you after just one breath. Our guests could spend hours gazing out at the views while watching the birds flock to our feeders. Listen to the sound of trickling water from our water feature as you sit at our outdoor fire pit, or opt to truly relax with a spa treatment. Indulge in a couples massage and some aromatherapy to make your romantic getaway in North Carolina one you will never forget.

Orchard Inn is the perfect place to stay as you indulge in a food-filled vacation. Not only do you get a delicious breakfast each morning, but you also have access to our on-site restaurant, Newman’s. A dinner at Newman’s isn’t just a meal; it’s an experience. Here, you can enjoy the finest and freshest offerings on this side of the Blue Ridge Mountains with a farm-to-table menu featuring seasonal ingredients. Then, eat your way around our town of Saluda at spots like the Purple Onion before traveling to the food scene in Downtown Asheville. Orchard Inn is just a 40-minute, short drive away from this foodie mecca, so you can experience the delicious cuisine easily when you visit Asheville restaurants!
