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 stay at Red Horse Inn was wonderful. It was so peaceful & the scene was beautiful. The one thing that was disappointing, was the directions for the covered bridges & waterfalls. It would have been helpful to have a time frame to get to each location and to be told that because of lack of rain, water wasn't following.

Lovely room with very quiet surroundings. The view of the Smoky Mountains was beautiful. The only negative was the directions given to locate covered bridges and waterfalls. It would have been nice to know how long it would take to get to the spots, & to be told that there hadn't been enough rain for water to flow over the falls.

What a perfect place to get away from the chaos of Black Friday shopping! The Red Horse Inn is tucked into the beautiful rolling hills and every little detail was thoughtfully presented in the room and in reception. Even the little "kitchen in a closet" was well stocked with breakfast items each day. Local restaurants and quaint small towns gave us plenty to do after we had walked the many trails on the property. There's as much - or as little - to do as you choose.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in October, 2016. It was a real treat! You could see from the photographs on the website how nice the place was, but until we got there, we could not appreciate the relaxed and pampered feeling that sinks into your soul once you are there. So quiet and peaceful, beautiful beyond belief, and restive and calming to soothe your mind and body. Very friendly owners with great recommendations on what to see or where to dine. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there - wish we would have been able to stay a couple of extra days.

We stayed in a cabin on the property of the Bed and Breakfast. Was a little surprised to find out breakfast was put in the freezer and we had to pull out to thaw each morning. Every other Bed and Breakfast I have stayed at served a fresh and hot breakfast each morning. The cabin was very clean and well kept.
Thank you for your review. We are not the typical bed and breakfast and handle our meals in an unusual way. We do our best to communicate our unique setup via our website or on the phone. Some people love the option of warming the food while relaxing in their accommodation while others prefer the more conventional dining options. If we get enough requests for public dining we certainly make a change. Thank you for your input!

My husband had a birthday coming up and I decided to surprise him with a weekend at The Red Horse Inn. From the time I booked our trip to the time we left Mary and Roger's lovely inn, there was no detail left undone. When making the reservations, I had mistakenly indicated only one guest. Mary sent me an email to make sure it was only one person and I responded that it was a surprise birthday trip for my husband and myself. Imagine our delight upon entering our beautiful room to find Happy Birthday balloons and a personalized birthday greeting for my husband! There were also birthday cupcakes with candles!!! This wonderful gesture was not an extra charge, it was just something that they do to make everyone's stay as perfect as possible. The room was very cozy; love the window seats that look out on the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the king size bed was so comfy! The bathroom was very well appointed and the breakfast was excellent. We both loved the privacy of having breakfast in our room on our own time. There are different packages that you can choose when you book a stay. We chose the Covered Bridges and Waterfalls self guided driving tour. We printed out the directions and we were on our way exploring the beautiful countryside. Mary gave us some recommendations for places to eat and she was spot on with them all! So many wonderful touches and such welcoming hospitality from Mary and Roger allowed us to have one of the most relaxing weekends that we have had in a long time. We can't wait to visit again.

Fantastic weekend away! We loved every minute. From the cleanliness, the every finite detail, this place was top notch!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are happy that you had a wonderful stay and can't wait to host you again.
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. Bring your dog for only only $25 pet cleaning fee.
King - $245 - A fox hunting mural runs the course around the walls of the living and dining rooms of the Carriage Bay Cottage.

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.

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.

A lovely view of the mountains can be enjoyed from the windows in the bath before taking that long soak in the whirlpool tub.
