The Destination
Life moves a little slower in Saluda, a town of about 600 people just 30 minutes south of Asheville. Sure, it boasts the steepest railroad line east of the Rockies, site of a few runaway railcars in the 1800s. And the bustling downtown, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, features a number of noteworthy art galleries, shops, and restaurants that draw visitors from around the country. But nestled amid the Blue Ridge Mountains, and humming with verdant orchards thanks to its mild year-round climate, Saluda exudes a country vibe that visitors can't help but embrace.

The Digs
And while a bounty of outdoor adventure awaits here, it's the indoors that'll really win you over. At The Orchard Inn, a quaint yellow house built in 1926, you'll be led past a crackling fireplace to one of nine guest rooms, each uniquely adorned with period furnishings like sleigh or four-poster beds, rich wood nightstands, and antique vanities. All guest rooms come with a private bath, and some look out onto stellar views of the Warrior Mountains. In the morning, you'll be treated to a full gourmet breakfast in the glassed-in porch, awe-inspiring vistas included.

The Diversions
• Visit and tour Biltmore Estate, America's largest home, in nearby Asheville
• Stroll the rustic downtown and peruse art galleries, shops, and restaurants
• Inquire about the innkeepers' recommendations for golf, hiking, fishing, kayaking, and biking

  • "The scenery is breathtaking and the inn is elegant with warmth and hospitality that makes you feel right at home! The meals are special and mouthwatering! You will not be disappointed with a visit to the Orchard Inn!"
