Here’s Why Orchard Inn Is One of the Top Romantic Places to Stay in Western NC
You Can Unwind in Style
The most important things to look for in a romantic destination are privacy and peace. You want to relax and spend time together, and the Western North Carolina Mountains provide the perfect backdrop. Orchard Inn is ideally located in the historic town of Saluda, just minutes from Asheville. Here, you can breathe in the fresh mountain air of the forest, gaze at the sunset over the hills, and enjoy an undisturbed stay from the comfort of one of our private rooms, cottages, or suites.
You Can Enjoy a Variety of Romantic Activities
For 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.
For the Foodie Couple
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!
For the Adventurous Couple
If you’re looking for adventurous and romantic mountain getaways in North Carolina, you have come to the right place. Our location is perfect for couples that enjoy exploring together! Breathe in our fresh mountain air as you embark on a journey to see some of the most breathtaking sights our area has to offer. One of the most romantic aspects of our landscape is the plethora of waterfalls. One of our favorites is Big Bradley Falls, a 75-foot cascade near the inn. Whether you are a novice or an expert hiker, the trails to these natural phenomena are perfect for your trip. We even have a nature trail right on our property!
For the History-Loving Couple
History lovers will love staying at Orchard Inn! Our inn itself has a unique history as a summer getaway for railroad employees and their families. In the area around our inn, there are even more places to learn about. Find museums, learn about the Saluda Grade, and more. A favorite is the Biltmore Estate. The house itself is the largest home in the United States and holds an incredible history. The staff keeps the home and gardens exactly how they were when they were built in the 1800s; it’s a sight you absolutely must-see.
You Can Treat Yourself
Another must for your couple’s getaway: The Orchard Inn’s Romance Package. If you and your partner seldom take time off, you should make the most of it when you do! Take your romantic vacation to the next level with two nights in our stunning Holly Cottage, a candlelit dinner at Newman’s Restaurant, a bottle of French Champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, and as well as a couple’s massage.
