About

We are a stately bed & breakfast Inn located on 190 mountain view acres with six romantic Victorian style cottages (with pet-friendly available). For your romantic getaway weekend or as the ultimate wedding venue, experience the award-winning Red Horse Inn! Each cottage has a bedroom, bath, kitchen, living room with fireplace, decks or patios, color TV and AC. Three have sleeping lofts and whirlpool bath tubs. Two cottages have private outdoor spas. There are also six romantic rooms in the main Inn. We are located off the Scenic Route 11 within minutes of some of the finest SC parks. We are in the middle of fox hunting country which takes place in the fall to early spring. Our area boasts golfing, tennis, antiquing, sporting clays, hunting and fishing. The Flatrock Playhouse and The Peace Center offer professional performing arts productions, or our guests can simply relax and consume the refreshing mountain views from rocking chairs on the porch. My husband Roger and I are former advertising designers and old house restorers, now full-time hosts. We supply a breakfast basket with muffins or croissants, fruit and juice, coffee and all condiments.

Incredible visit

4.8 on December 19, 2014

From the drive up to the cottage to the hot tub, everything was great. The view from the back deck was breathtaking every evening. The food was delicious. We had an incredible time and are planning our next trip.


Our first stay

5 on December 03, 2014

The Red Horse Inn was a wonderful place to stay. The entire experience was amazing, from the room to the breakfast. We have already made our plans to make this an annual trip.


Beautiful place to get away

Very private and quiet. Lovely room. Excellent service.


Anniversary

3.8 on November 21, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for our 10th Anniversary and Mary, Roger and Christian were so friendly and helpful. We were not able to get there until around 8PM and had not been able to eat that night. Mary was so kind as to make us a homemade pizza at 9PM that night so we would not have to go out on the road again. This is an AWESOME place with great views and lots of things to do. Will absolutely be going back to stay.


Absolutely Breathtaking

My husband and I wanted to get away. Found Red Horse Inn by accident. So glad we did. Mary and Roger are the perfect hosts. Room was awesome. Beautiful views. It's a magical place. It's just really hard to describe. When we left, we were well rested and renewed. Cannot wait to go back. We went on the winery, waterfall tour they suggested. Had such a wonderful time. Bed was so comfy, best night sleep I have had in a while. It was nice to have breakfast in your room. And the pizza is awesome. A must see, you won't be disappointed.


We Love The Red Horse Inn!

5 on November 05, 2014

This was our second visit to The Red Horse Inn. Both times we stayed in The Grainery Cottage because we think it has the best view of the mountains and is so private! We didn't leave the cottage for 3 days. Mary and Roger brought us gourmet meals right to our door on the agreed time (that we chose) and everything was delicious!! The first time we stayed we visited the vineyards, hiked to waterfalls, took pictures at all the covered bridges, and strolled the nearby towns. We also sat in rockers on the back patio, loving the view of the mountains, and drank coffee during the day and wine at night. Because it was pretty cold this time, we spent a lot of time in front of our fireplace and read and relaxed. Ahhhhhh.....we love this place!!


The Red Horse Inn

5 on October 30, 2014

We went to the Red Horse Inn for no particular purpose, just to stay in an inn and visit the Biltmore House. We stayed for three nights and we fell in love with it. Our room was the most romantic room - The Croft Room. Beautiful sheer curtains hung down from the bed which was covered in rose pedals. There was a nice sitting room with a wonderful surprise - the breakfast closet. Instead of getting dressed and going to the dining room for breakfast, The Red Horse Inn provided daily exquisite menu items in your own room. The fridge was loaded with breakfast casseroles, or homemade muffins with fresh fruit and granola. There was a microwave and coffee maker. Fine china and silverware was provided. We could sit in front of our fireplace and have breakfast. We sat on the front porch with a bottle of champaign and enjoyed the view of the Blue Ridge mountains. There were hiking trails you could use for picnics and a beautiful horse that is the great-granddaughter of Secretariat. We not only were close to the Biltmore House, but close to many antique shops in the town of Landrum. We dined in many delicious restaurants. We had no special occasion to celebrate but felt that we were on our honeymoon. The innkeepers, Mary and Roger were more like friends than the innkeepers. This is definitely an inn we will visit again.


Peaceful, romantic retreat

4.4 on October 29, 2014

This was our 5th visit to the Red Horse. We look forward all year until we can return! Mary & Roger have created a peaceful, romantic setting and their attentiveness to their guests is outstanding. Having our own private cottage makes the experience unique and even more romantic. The setting of the Inn at the foot of beautiful mountains makes it the perfect place to enjoy the changing leaves.


Great experience!

4.8 on October 22, 2014

Romantic, quiet, peaceful weekend. Everyone was very friendly and eager to help. The view was spectacular, be sure and walk the trails on the property. Small towns nearby for visiting. Waterfalls close by and several winery tours available too. We do plan on returning.


Wonderful Place

3.6 on October 20, 2014

We spent our 11th wedding anniversary in the Grainary cottage. Beautiful location with lovely views. We spent a lovely fall weekend enjoying the surrounding area and the relaxation of the cottage. The dinner recommendations were spot on. Would definitely return!

Rooms & Rates

Huntbox Cottage

Queen - $245 - Detailed woodworking dominates the decorating of the Huntbox Cottage. Dark wood tones and leather look wing chairs provide the feeling of warmth and cozy comfort. Stone-like tile floors are covered with deep red oriental rugs. The upstairs loft provides a leather-like sofa bed, perfect for snuggling or stretching out with that great novel you've meant to read. The theme of the 1066 Normandy battles decorates the fireplace mantel and adorns the bed pillows. The overall feel of the cottage reminds one of an old English library. The whirlpool tub in the spacious bathroom adds that extra special touch to this already luxurious cottage. This cottage can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children.

  • Maximum Capacity: 4

Carriage Bay Cottage

King - $245 - A fox hunting mural runs the course around the walls of the living and dining rooms of the Carriage Bay Cottage. Fox hunting pictures and memorabilia decorate the entire cottage and you can read "the spirit of fox hunting" on the bedroom walls. Warm rich plaids add a cozy atmosphere. The fireplace nook is a perfect spot to enjoy an "ordered in" pizza for two at the end of the day. The upstairs loft sports a comfortable sofa for cuddling or watching TV. The luxurious whirlpool tub can soothe and renew and remind that it's vacation time. The expansive deck off the western side of the cottage is the perfect spot for sunning and taking in the glorious views. The private deck off the bedroom is perfect place to lazily wake up and enjoy your morning coffee. Sleeps 2 adults and 2 children.

  • Maximum Capacity: 4

Springhouse Cottage

King - $315 - Our premier cottage, the Springhouse is light and airy with a surprisingly calming soft green color scheme. A forest mural surrounds three tall gothic arched windows that lead the eye beyond to the blue mountains. The furniture is artistically distressed, giving it an antique appeal. The private deck off the bedroom provides the perfect resting spot after a long day hiking in the mountains, walking the trails or antiquing in town. It is our special cottage, as the deck leads to your own private outdoor spa. This two-person jetted spa is the perfect place to view the stars at night! The spacious deck also provides two luxurious lounge chairs. Quiet and spacious, the Springhouse lets you sleep feeling luxuriously pampered on our king-size “Tempur-Pedic®” mattress. You can view the fireplace and the mountain view from the romantic four poster bed draped in sheer fabric.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Hayloft Cottage

Queen - $300 - The collection of blue and white plates, candlesticks, and bric-a-brac sets a tone of elegant sophistication. The blue and white color scheme is carried throughout the cottage with decorator chintz pillows and toile wallpaper. The pair of blue velvet high-back wing chairs in front of the fireplace offer quiet repose. Morning glories tumble down the walls of the bedroom, adorning the white four poster bed... it seems natural that morning glories grow outside the bedroom window. From the bedroom you can watch the horses graze in the pasture or doze in the barn. Outside you can inhale the view and delight in the pond filled with Japanese koi, enlivened by the sound of the gurgling fountain. Or, enjoy the relaxing warmth of the spa hot tub on the deck, very romantic! This is the best, most luxurious place to view the stars at night or enjoy the view during the day. The Hayloft can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children.

  • Maximum Capacity: 4

Grainary Cottage

Queen - $320 - Shades of white and beige softly decorate the walls of the Grainary Cottage. It is light and airy, open from floor to ceiling with a soaring skyward feel. The ancient stone floors are covered with plush oriental rugs. The cozy fireplace corner beckons one to relax with a cup of tea and a good book. When you lay your head down at night you will find yourself pleasantly inspired by the beautiful writings of love and romance artistically inscribed on the parchment-like walls. The spacious whirlpool tub in the bath is complemented by plush oversized towels. Sunrise from the front porch is awe-inspiring and sunset from the deck off the bedroom is a reverent experience.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Stables Cottage

Queen - $210 - The Stables Cottage is unique among South Carolina bed & breakfasts. This upstairs accomodation is great for a romantic adult getaway, but it's also one of the best available luxury pet-friendly cabin rentals in the Blue Ridge Mountains area. When considering cozy cabins, NC pet-friendly travelers and SC travelers agree: The Stables Cottage is perfect for romantic anniversary vacations and all great weekend getaways, Southeast-style. The Stables Cottage has four lovely gables with soaring ceilings, one of which houses the lovely queen size four poster bed with sheer fabric, making it just as suitable for romantic winery getaways! From the bed you can view the fireplace and sitting area, complete with TV with DVD player. Another gable houses the kitchenette. The bathroom fits luxuriously in the last gable and is complete with a large shower stall, sink, vanity and plenty of room to lounge.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

East Room

King - $205 - The East Bedroom is a stunning and masculine bedroom, with honey colored wood working that surrounds the fireplace. The large leather sofa makes for comfortable relaxing. A stone floor accented with plush oriental rugs makes this spacious room that much more luxurious. Two large patio doors open onto a flagstone terrace where you can enjoy the sunrise or sunset over the mountains. The whirlpool tub is tucked into the cozy but spacious bathroom. The four poster king size bed adds to the luxury. The built-in kitchen closet houses a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker offering you the convenience of sleeping in and having your continental breakfast when you please. The East Bedroom is our handicap unit, but who could ever tell!

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Dovecote Room

King - $190 - The Dovecote Bedroom is bright and cheerful, with white and beige and splashes of red. The king size bed is subtly draped in sheer fabric to resemble the look of a four poster bed. You can enjoy the fireplace from the king size bed or watch TV. Two elegant wing chairs provide an enjoyable sitting area, perfect for reading the many magazines we provide or that good book you brought with you. The balcony is the perfect spot to enjoy the breakfast that has been left in the kitchen closet in your room. You can view the sunrise or the sunset over the mountains from your private balcony. And don't forget, the whirlpool tub is waiting to be enjoyed in the spacious bathroom.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Gable Room

King - $200 - The Gable Bedroom is our most sought after room and known for its dramatic views. Located in the north west corner of the Inn, each window holds a gorgeous mountain view. The window seats will invite you to curl into the cubby with the soft oversized pillows and gaze out to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Decorated in soft greens of velvet, satin and cottons, it is sophisticated, yet understated. The king size bed is draped with sheer fabric, adding an element of pure romance. Enjoy the fireplace from the bed or gaze out to the balcony where tomorrow morning you can savor your breakfast which awaits you in your own kitchen closet. The oversized bathroom holds the whirlpool tub, the perfect spot to relax in after a day of trail climbing to the waterfalls.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Croft Room

Queen - $185 - The Croft Bedroom is our most romantic of the Inn Rooms. Architecturally interesting, it is in the crook of the building where the rafters join and form interesting angles. Sheer fabric drapes from the beams create an ethereal and romantic atmosphere. Decorated in all whites and beiges, the brass bed rests its head against a bank of three windows that capture the mountain view. Two cream colored wing chairs sit in front of the fireplace, the perfect place for enjoying your in-room breakfast left for you in the kitchen closet. A white marble bathroom houses the whirlpool tub just waiting for you to come and relax the cares of the world away.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Aviary Room

King - $180 - The Aviary Bedroom hosts a lovely Oriental flavored triptic of birds in flight. Blue and yellow toile, plaids and stripes give a bright and cheerful feel in contrast to the stately aviary prints. A cozy fireplace sitting area is the perfect place to enjoy reading about the fifty waterfalls for which the area is known. Two window seats look south over woodlands and distant pastures while the remaining two overlook the fish pond in the garden courtyard. A lovely view of the mountains can be enjoyed from the windows in the bath before taking that long soak in the whirlpool tub.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Manger Room

King - $175 - The Manger Bedroom is decorated in soft beige toile and petite checks reminiscent of France. The bank of windows above the King size bed looks out onto the garden courtyard. Dramatic angles provide an interesting architectural element to the room as its ceilings soar upward. The two window seats provide a stunning view of the mountains. Two comfortable chairs are perfect for viewing the fireplace or watching TV. And of course, the whirlpool in the bathroom offers the relaxation one needs at the end of the day. Has potential of having two twin beds.
