The Orchard Inn: Member of Select Registry

When you finally have carved the time out of your busy schedule to get away and relax, you want to be sure that where you’re going is pristinely clean, well appointed, and consistently maintains a level of excellence.  We’ve all either experienced or heard of stories that detail vacations that have derailed and gone awry because the destination wasn’t all that it claimed to be.  We, at The Orchard Inn, can assure you that our Inn is absolutely among the finest in the country and The Select Registry: Distinguished Inns of North America agrees with us.

When an Inn is a member of the Select Registry, it means that we’ve passed a rigorous and ANONYMOUS inspection.  Someone has come to our Inn as a guest and we’ve treated him or her just like we would treat any other guest.  Without us knowing, they closely inspect our grounds, amenities, housekeeping, food, and other important details and if we meet their standards, we are given the privileged membership to The Select Registry, which is quite an honor!  We are proud to say that The Orchard Inn is one of only eleven out of HUNDREDS of bed and breakfasts in the greater Asheville, NC area to pass Select Registry’s rigorous test to receive their seal of approval.

While you are here, you can rest assured that your linens are crisp, soft, clean, and of the upmost quality.  We serve only the best fare money can buy, always using the freshest ingredients and local and organically grown produce when available.  Our rooms and living spaces are immaculate and finely decorated.  Our grounds are impeccably kept.  We work very hard to insure that our Inn is second to none!

Others have noticed our attention to detail too.  We’ve gotten rave reviews from guests on Yelp.  Also, we’re ranked as #1 out of 6 hotels and bed and breakfasts in Saluda, NC and have received repeated kudos on  We have also gotten frequent high praise from guests on    You don’t have to be a professional Inn inspector to see and enjoy the marked difference in quality when you stay in a Select Registry Inn.

You may be asking yourself at this point, “Who started the Select Registry?  Where did this come from?”  The Select Registry was started by Norman Simpson, the author of Country Inns and Back Roads, which is now in its 20th edition!  This book is now used as the Select Registry’s anthology.  Mr. Simpson and his wife spent decades traveling and writing travel guides and eventually these books morphed into what eventually became the backbone for today’s Select Registry.

Come and see what we have to offer you at The Orchard Inn here in beautiful Saluda, NC!  You’ll get to see and experience first-hand the Select Registry difference when it comes to accommodations.  You’ll never again make your travel plans without first consulting the registry.  Why leave it to chance when you can insure the quality of your family’s vacation lodgings?  You’ll be thrilled with our quality, attention to detail, and our first-rate service!
