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, TV and AC. Three have sleeping lofts and whirlpool bath tubs. Three cottages have private outdoor hot tubs. 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. We supply a breakfast basket with muffins or croissants, fruit and juice, coffee and all condiments.

As a girl, I enjoyed all the attention to detail in the cottage. Everything I could come up with as a "nice touch" I found.

My husband and I went to the Red Horse Inn to watch the solar eclipse. I had found it by looking at a map and then searching inns in the area. We really didn't know what to expect and after a very long time spent in traffic, we were completely enchanted by the inn upon arrival. We arrived early because of all of the hype surrounding the eclipse. Our room was ready and we were given a tour of all the charms of the property. We stayed in the aviary room and I told my husband that I could live there. Several little nooks to sit and relax or eat in. Will definitely use the fireplace on our return trip. The bathroom was beautiful and I did take advantage of the jetted tub. It was the perfect place to view the eclipse and in the evening we watched the sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains. Breakfast was in our refrigerator and I really like the idea of serving yourself at your own leisure. As soon as we got home, I got on line and booked a stay in October to enjoy the fall colors. I highly recommend this little gem located in the foothills of South Carolina!!

Impressive stylish rooms in the main building. Christian is very friendly and helpful in suggesting local attractions to match our choice of activities. Very clean rooms and amenities. The rooms and property create a very romantic and quite setting. No on-site dining served in the expansive common rooms but a nice breakfast is provided in the room. Makes for a very private experience.

I surprised my husband with a weekend getaway. From the pictures and previous reviews I was expecting something pretty awesome and it did not disappoint - he was surprised and we both loved it. The quiet, the views, the accomodations - it was all pretty special. We plan to visit again.
Thank you! See you next time.

We had a wonderful stay at the Hayloft Cabin. The only thing I would have wished for were some cozy throws, since the thermostat wouldn't go above 74°. I was cold in the cabin much of the time. But they did have lovely, cozy robes so I just stayed in one of those. The views were absolutely spectacular, as was the cabin. It was gorgeous. I wasn't too excited about the breakfast. Although it was very neatly left in the fridge for us, it was some sort of egg casserole that needed to be re-warmed, so that wasn't super appealing to me. But the sliced strawberries were delicious. The last thing was the hot tub. Gorgeous views and very private. We loved it. But the water wouldn't get nearly as hot as we would have liked. We set it hotter, but it would it change. But we did have excellent service and an overall great experience.
Thank you for the review! Sorry the upper limit of the thermostat was not high enough. I can easily adjust those limits from my phone and have made all accommodations limits a little larger. As for the hot tub, I recently found the Hayloft hot tub was set to "sleep". It's a silly design and easy to change without meaning to. Let me know next time and I'll set it back to the standard setting.

Can't say enough good things about this place. The grounds and view were amazing. Also really enjoyed venturing out to Mountain Brook Vineyards and Russian Chapel Hill Vineyards and the local waterfalls. Would absolutely stay here again.

Queen - 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. Bring your dog for only only $25 pet cleaning fee.
King - 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.
King - 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.
Queen - 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.
Queen - 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.
Queen - 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.
King - 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! we can allow two adults and two children this wonderful accommodation.
King - 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.
King - 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.
Queen - 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.
King - 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.
King - 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.
