How to Have the Best Western North Carolina Vacation

No matter what time of year you visit, Western North Carolina is a special place. In the summer, warm weather draws countless visitors to hike our mountain trails beneath the shade of the forest canopy. In the fall, the leaves transform our mountain town into fiery shades of red and yellow before they fall to give way to a snowy winter. After a mild winter season, spring brings the leaves back once more. Experience the magic of our area when you plan your Western North Carolina vacation. 

4 Steps to Have the Best Western North Carolina Vacation

Step 1: Book Your Lodging

When you plan a Western North Carolina vacation, you’re going to need a place to stay! We highly recommend staying at Orchard Inn. Tucked away in the mountains of Saluda, guests have the choice of spacious cottages, inn rooms, and suites. Embrace the quiet calm a small town brings, then venture out into the city of Asheville for some hustle and bustle. You’ll love being away from the stresses of everyday life yet close enough to the surrounding activities to drive where you please. 

Step 2: Plan Your Itinerary

There’s so much to do in Western North Carolina! If you stay at Orchard Inn, we’re more than happy to give you recommendations on things to do here. As locals, we know all of the best local wineries, hiking trails, shopping spots, and more. Whether you’re looking for relaxing activities or want to see the area on horseback, we know where to send you.

Step 3: Pick Out Some Restaurants

When you’re on vacation, food isn’t just a necessity. It’s part of the experience! There are some incredible restaurants in our area, and we recommend having reservations for some of them. We think that it’s always best to do a little research on where to eat before you stay somewhere, and we are happy to help with our recommendations! 

During your stay at Orchard Inn, you’ll want to dine at our restaurant, Newman’s, for an incredible farm-to-table experience. If you’re heading to Asheville, we recommend Cucina24’s family-style dinner. If you’re looking for more places to dine in Saluda, you’ll love the Purple Onion!
