Historic downtown Saluda is just one block from our guest apartment which is nestled in a garden setting in a pleasant neighborhood. Our location provides easy access to the town's shops and restaurants and to many activities and experiences in and around Saluda.
Our guest suite is nestled in a garden setting which has been designated a National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat. The suite, ideal for one or two adults, includes sitting, dining, and sleeping areas, a fully equipped galley kitchen, and a bath. Because the suite is available year round, central heating and air conditioning are included for comfort. We provide complimentary coffees, teas and sweeteners, all linens, and daily housekeeping. Guests have wireless internet access and cable television. On request, a complimentary light breakfast can be included and would be served in the suite.
The bay window in the sitting area offers not only a fine view of the garden but also an opportunity to watch the several species of birds that come to the feeder and ones that feed on the ground. Guests can also spend time in the swing just outside their door, on a garden bench under the canopy of a two hundred year old chestnut oak, and in other sitting areas in the garden that fills the grounds.
A special feature of a stay in the suite is being wakened on a Sunday morning by the bell of the historic nineteenth century Episcopal Church next door. With Saluda's restaurants and shops just a block away (but a world away), guests can easily enjoy time on Main Street. And, when they want to venture further, they can follow the self-guided walks in town and in the countryside and the self-guided drives in the surrounding area--guides created specifically for our guests.
In addition, guests will find that our location provides easy access to experiences in the surrounding area. Our bigger setting includes a wide range of hiking trails; biking routes; zip-lining ("The Gorge" zip line right here in Saluda!); water sports on the Green River--kayaking, rafting, tubing; music and visual arts experiences; performances at the Flat Rock Playhouse; visits to historic places such as Biltmore House and the Carl Sandburg Home; equestrian events including ones held at the Tryon Equestrian Center; winery and brewery tours; the Blue Ridge Parkway; and so much more.
The suite is a private setting for guests. They are given a key on arrival. The guest parking space is just a few steps from the suite's private entrance.
