Guests are greeted at the garden gate on arrival. Check-in hours are from 1:00 in the afternoon to 9:00 at night. It is good to scroll down the listing to the “Things to Know” section for more information.

The garden fills the grounds and has been designated a National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat. Both the apartment and the garden are smoke-free settings. The apartment, ideal for one or two adults, includes sitting, dining, and sleeping areas, a galley kitchen (cooktop, microwave, toaster oven, coffeemaker, refrigerator), and a bath. Coffees, cream, teas and sweeteners are provided. All linens are included. Guests have Wifi access and cable television. Also, central heating and air conditioning are included for comfort.

The bay window in the sitting area offers not only a fine view of the garden but also an opportunity to watch the several species of birds that come to the feeder and ones that feed on the ground. Guests can also spend time in the swing just outside their door, on a garden bench under the canopy of a two hundred year old chestnut oak, and in other sitting areas in the garden.

A special feature of a stay in the apartment is being wakened on a Sunday morning by the bell of the historic nineteenth century Episcopal Church next door. With Saluda’s restaurants and shops just a block away (but a world away), guests can easily enjoy time on Main Street. And, when you want to venture further, you can follow the self-guided walks in town and in the countryside and the self-guided drives in the surrounding area–guides created specifically for our guests.

In addition, guests will find that our location provides easy access to experiences in the surrounding area. Our bigger setting includes a wide range of hiking trails; biking routes; zip-lining (“The Gorge” zip line right here in Saluda!); water sports on the Green River–kayaking, rafting, tubing; music and visual arts experiences; performances at the Flat Rock Playhouse; visits to historic places such as Biltmore House and the Carl Sandburg Home; equestrian events including ones held at the Tryon Equestrian Center; winery and brewery tours; the Blue Ridge Parkway; and so much more.

The apartment is a private setting for guests. The guest parking space, which accommodates one vehicle, is just a few steps from the apartment’s private entrance. While persons with slight mobility issues would probably find access to the apartment and its physical setup suitable, persons with other mobility issues would want to be aware that there are steps up from the parking space and that the bathroom is not designed to be handicap accessible (no safety bars, etc.).

The booking request is to be made by a person who will be staying.
The space is designed for adults; it is not suitable for infants and children.
There is a queen sized bed.
Please bring own towels for water recreation use.
