Nestled between a creek and pond in the woods near downtown Saluda, ‘A Feathered Nest’ offers you access into the heart of the rugged Blue Ridge Mountains. The craftsman style bungalow features hardwood floors, coffered ceilings and ample space for everyone in your group to unwind.
Start your day with a hearty breakfast prepared in the fully equipped kitchen, stocked with breakfast items and an assortment of coffee, decaf, and tea. Dine at the hardwood table in the kitchen or out on the deck overlooking the pond. Take the paddle boat out on the water, where you might see the resident ducks swimming beside you. For sure, you’ll hear Jeremiah and his buddies croaking at the edge of the pond.
Walk over to the storage shed to get out your kayaks, try some of the whitewater rafting the area is known for, or spend a peaceful morning floating down the Green River in one of the provided tubes.
When you return, relax in the hammock tucked into the trees and unwind in your mountain getaway. Fire up the Weber gas grill on the deck and enjoy a barbecued dinner surrounded by the tranquil Blue Ridge Mountain setting.
As it grows dark, gather in the Adirondack chairs around the fire pit and soak in the star-filled sky as you roast s’mores (ingredients provided) over the fire. If you’re not quite ready for bed, watch a movie on the flat-screen TV before retreating into your bedroom to fall asleep in the blissful quiet of the cottage.
In the morning, sip your coffee in the screened-in porch and watch the woods wake up around you as you prepare for another unforgettable day.
