My husband and I felt so at home and welcome as guests of Dale and Donna. We were lucky enough to be the only guests that weekend and each breakfast was a charming visit with our hosts. In the evening we would return to a lit up home and romantic music. It was exactly what we hoped for.

My Mother and I had a simply lovely weekend in Saluda. Dale and Donna, the innkeepers of The Oaks, were extremely friendly and hospitable. Some of our best times in Saluda were spent chatting to them about all sorts of things! Great food, great atmosphere...can't wait to go back!

The Oaks out of town just a little ways - nice big porch to sit on and enjoy peace and quiet. Nice view. Beautiful room. Breakfast was delicious. I will go back.
Somehow we delivered on all levels and came up short on "Value". (They failed to mention the fresh flower in every room.) We'll work on that!

This has been a wonderful experience. Love your place! Enjoyed our time here. Hope to see you again!
Five stars in every category but "dining". Sorry to say, that as a licensed bed and breakfast, we really don't offer anything other than our fabulous breakfast. We do have many great restaurants within walking distance of the inn. You will be satisfied!

Think of The Oaks Bed and Breakfast as your "Home in the Mountains" and the mountains are calling!
The Red Room – This striking crimson room is situated at the end of the second floor hall—a short walk that will take you to a world of period antiques and remarkable Victorian charm. The carved antique queen-size four-poster bed is the centerpiece of this luxurious suite—that is, until you notice the view of the densely wooded nature area that boarders this magnificent property. With windows on two sides, The Red Room allows guests to appreciate all the sunshine and fresh air that the mountains are known for. Private bath, paddle fan, cable TV, individually controlled heat and air.
These spacious and elaborate accommodations exude the very attitude prevalent during the Victorian era. As the “master suite” for the couple responsible for building this beautiful home in 1895, The Green Room remains the largest guest room at the inn. A vintage settee and matching chair provide comfortable seating in this sunny second floor suite decorated with an antique queen-sized four-poster bed, mirrored dressing table, chest of drawers paddle fan, cable TV, individually controlled heat and air and an over-sized full private bath.
Every inn should have a room like The Yellow Room—classic bed and breakfast in every detail. Warm and welcoming. Comfortable and cozy.

The Turret Room is the forward most room in the house and offers a beautiful second floor view of the 200-year old White Oak from which the inn takes its name. Here you will find three comfortable single beds in two separate, yet adjoining, rooms! The classic round turret is part of this unique sleeping arrangement and is a favorite with guests who return time after time. These open and sunny guest rooms feature too many windows to count, a small private balcony, original art, antique furniture, paddle fans, cable TV, individually controlled heat and air and a full private bath.
