This summer has something truly exciting in store: the total eclipse of the sun! This extraordinary upcoming event is being referred to as the “Great American Eclipse,” as it will only be visible in its totality from the United States. It’s been 26 years since a solar eclipse has occurred in our country, so this is an incredible, rare phenomenon you won’t want to miss!
Only a small band across the central United States will be treated to the full eclipse, and Saluda is right on the edge of that band! So whether you want to stay at our Inn or take a short drive to a nearby viewing spot to be at the heart of the eclipse, you’ll be in for a treat.
The total eclipse of the sun will take place August, 21st, 2017 just after 2:30 p.m. and the Orchard Inn is in a prime viewing spot! Experience this amazing event to the fullest by booking our Total Solar Eclipse Package.
Stay for two nights (either Sunday & Monday or Monday & Tuesday) for $375 for queen bedrooms and $425 for king bedrooms upstairs in the Inn. You may upgrade to a cottage for an additional price.
This special deal will include everything you need for safely viewing this solar eclipse:
- Solar Eclipse Glasses for safe viewing (these are necessary to protect your eyes while experiencing the eclipse!)
- A picnic lunch to enjoy while waiting for the eclipse to begin
- A sheet with facts about the eclipse and directions to the best viewing spots
You can also extend your trip to a third night (Sunday-Tuesday or Monday – Wednesday) and get the third night for half price!
You don’t get many opportunities to watch the sun disappear behind the moon, so don’t miss this one!
