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.
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... please see the Hayloft page of our Website for more information.
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 &amp;amp;quot;the spirit of fox hunting&amp;amp;quot; on the bedroom walls. Warm rich plaids add a cozy atmosphere. 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.
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... please see the Grainary page of our Website for more information.
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... please visit the Huntbox page of our Website for more information.
Light and airy, The Springhouse is surprisingly calming with the soft green color scheme. A forest mural surrounds three tall gothic arched windows that lead the eye beyond to the blue mountains. Please visit the Springhouse page of our Website for more information.
The Stables Cottage is unique among South Carolina bed and breakfasts. This upstairs accommodation is great for a romantic weekend getaways, but it's also one of the best available luxury pet-friendly cottage rentals near the Blue Ridge Mountains... please see the Stables page on our Website for more information.
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. For more information, please visit the East Bedroom page of our Website.
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 (with its exquisite memory foam topper) rests its head against a bank of three windows that capture the mountain view. For more information, please visit the Croft page on our Website.
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. For more information, please visit the Manger page on our Website.
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... for more information, please visit the Dovecote page on our Website.
The Gable Bedroom is our most sought after room and is 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. For more information, please visit the Gable page on our Website.
The Aviary Bedroom hosts a lovely Oriental flavored three-part rendering 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. For more information, please visit the Aviary page on our Website.

The nicest place we have ever stayed. So quiet, private, and spotless. We didn't have to see anyone if we didn't want to.
