We recently visited the Inn for a family reunion. My Husband and I stayed in the main house with a portion of our family, and the family also rented a portion of the cabins. The rooms were great! the service impeccable. Marc and Marianne ensured every detail was taken care of. Not only did they provide amazing service at the inn, they also offered suggestions for hikes, shopping, resteraunts etc!

A lovely clean, comfortable, stress free place in the middle of "God's country". We so enjoyed our stay we are giving our Mom who will turn 89 in October a night at the Inn for her birthday! With the confidence that this lovely Inn will be a sweet sweet memory for her. Thank you Orchard Inn!

I recently had the good fortune to spend a number of nights at the Inn while on an extended business project in the area. Truly a wonderful experience with wonderful people. When I was a lad, my family had a summer place in the Catskill mountains with the same type of porch and rooms. The atmosphere and the ambiance brought me back to that era and has added years to my life. Go and enjoy yourself, the Inn, the neighboring towns, the mountains. It will stay with you.

This place is outstanding, from the warm welcome you are greeted with as you enter to the refreshing breakfast in the morning. I arrived on the evening of the Belmont Stakes. All the guests congregated to the lower level to watch the horse race. We got a betting pool together and I won. The main level is huge and very inviting. The scenery from the dining area is breathtaking. What a relaxing time I had.

What a superb two-day get-away! The feeling of being a world away from the hustle-bustle is real, and yet you are only minutes away from the charming community of Saluda, and just a short drive to Pearson Falls, historic Tryon and Hendersonville. The owners Marc & Marianne are warm and gracious hosts who know how to make you feel special and welcome in their home. We can hardly wait for our next visit!

Marc and Marianne provided gracious hospitality, calling us by name during our stay. A scrumptious breakfast was served each morning with delicious snacks available in the afternoons. The setting of the inn afforded wonderful views of sunrises over the mountains. It is a wonderful place for a great get away without a long drive from Atlanta.

This is our 2nd visit here and it won't be our last. Wonderful relaxing time with friends.We are looking to return this November. If you have the time then I'd recommend making use of the spa services, great massage and facial. The food is exceptional.
