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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

The place was wonderful! It was quiet, clean, comfortable, and very relaxing. I appreciated that it was within walking distance of downtown Saluda. So I was able to leave my car parked and enjoy a nice dinner at The Purple Onion. Hop in your car, and you can take a scenic ride to Asheville. Sherry was the perfect host. She greeted me upon arrival, and every morning delivered a delicious breakfast. I would definitely stay there again.

What a wonderful little space. Walter and Sherri were very accommodating even with some additional extra requests. They were always available. Breakfast was awesome and always on time. The space was immaculate and had a lot of extra thoughtful touches. I think they have really thought of everything!

Response from Walter:
We are so pleased, Stephanie, that you enjoyed your stay. We wish you had asked some questions about the internet service while you were here. If you had, it would have given us a welcomed opportunity to let you know that at this very time the company which provides our internet access and landline phone service is busy completing the last leg of their work connecting all of us to their new fiber optic lines which will replace the old coaxial cables we have all been connected to for a long time. This is an exciting change for us and the town at large. So, when you come again, Stephanie, we believe you will enjoy that change.

A must stay. Charming suite, the Host and Hostess are the best....they are full of information about Saluda and the surrounding area whether you want to drive or walk. They have information in the suite about local restaurants and activities close by. Breakfasts are wonderful....I can't say enough about The Charles St. Garden...

This is a small, tasteful, very private apartment on the lower level of Walter's home, nestled among a lush garden. It has a small kitchen, however, we opted for breakfast, which was excellent. If you're looking for privacy, this is it.

Walter & Sherry were wonderful. The place was kept spotless. My tasty breakfast arrived every morning at the time I requested it. I love how the room was nestled in a whimsical garden. I highly recommend their place.
