Second stay. Nice rooms. Christian is easy to work with. Decent breakfast selection in the room. Only complaint is this time our room did not have a thermostat control for the heat.
Thank you for the review! I realize that control over temperature is one of our issues and have been working to remedy it. In 2016 we installed new thermostats in all of the cottages and in 2017 we put in a new system that allows three of the 6 rooms to control their own temperature and replaced one cottage system. In 2018 I hope to get thermostats / new systems in the final three rooms. Sorry that you weren't comfortable during this stay but rest assured I am working as fast as I can to revamp our systems.

We chose the Red Horse Inn because of the good reviews and web site. The Inn exceeded our expectations. They greeted us, walk us to our room and explained the stay, allowed us to ask questions and then disappeared. They were there when needed but left us alone. The room was beautiful with so many little touches. Soaps, candles and special details for our honeymoon. The breakfast was setup in our room the day before, allowing us to have breakfast on our schedule. We had muffins, grits, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, juice, coffee.... all very tasty and good. Thank you Red Horse Inn for making our stay so special. We will be back when it is warmer!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. See you next time!

The Springhouse Cottage was awe inspiring and very quiet. The inn keepers are very helpful while at the same time, very respectful to keep their distance and to let the visitors have their privacy. I would highly recommend anybody looking for a peaceful getaway to look into The Red Horse Inn.

Everything about The Red Horse is a cut above. The serenity of being in the open foothills of the blue ridge mountains is truly a treasure. The room was beautiful and clean and extremely well-kept. I am so thankful, my fiancé and I were able to visit this romantic getaway 2 years in a row.

Upon entering the property everything is very well maintaniced and clean. Christian was extremely helpful, friendly and available at any time for questions or concerns. The cottages are fantastic and built to utilize every SF of space. Custom woodwork and details went into each unit. We will be going back in the near future for another stay. There is also a wine bar in progress and opening soon for guests and public.
Thank you for the review!

There are not enough good things I can say about this place! My husband found the Red Horse Inn online and we eagerly booked it after looking through the pictures. It completely exceeded our expectations! The drive up was easy and smooth; they had signs along the roads to help you find your way. The views of the mountains and the trees when you pull up takes your breath away! Our room was absolutely perfect - we had a gas fireplace, whirlpool tub, huge bed and a small balcony with amazing views. We couldn't have asked for a nicer room! The owners truly pride themselves on take care of all of the details and by doing so guests can just relax and enjoy time with their loved ones. We went on the Waterfalls/Covered Bridge Tour provided by the Inn and it was absolutely wonderful! We enjoyed seeing the sights and the directions were very easy to follow. It was also nice that they included coupons to the local restaurants and stores. My husband and I came back home refreshed and at ease from our stay at the Red Horse Inn. We are definitely going back in the near future!

We stayed in the Gable room for two nights. The room seemed even bigger than its pictures suggested. Warm ambiance, very clean and quiet. Complete solitude, country setting, mountains in background. Both mornings we watched from our balcony a beautiful horse running freely after being set out to pasture.

The Red Horse Inn EXCEEDED our expectations! We celebrated our 6th anniversary there and could not have been more pleased! We had all of the privacy we wanted and needed. I loved the muffins, fruit and yogurt that was left in the refrigerator for our stay. It was nice not to have to worry about being up for breakfast at a certain time and we enjoyed the privacy! Can't wait to go back!
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.

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.
