“Oh, what a night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

Not only was this cozy hilltop perch a great location, it was quiet, peaceful and decorated to the nines! The pics on their website do not lie. The owners are delightful, helpful and above all friendly. A lovely young couple, Wendy and Wayne are doing their best to please leaf peepers and people like me who'd rather travel than deal with holiday shopping at home, LOL. For the space and luxury, the price is REALLY good. It's only a minute from 176 where the quaint shopping lives with Tryon only a stone's throw. Great food in little nooks and a thrift shop where I got my favorite leather backpack for a song:-) Apple orchards in the area have stands practically next door to the Lodge. Maggie's will fix you a great light meal from scratch. I can't say enough about the Lodge. The views from front or back are breathtaking. Don't miss this one! If I had not had an agenda for seeing my kids, I'd have hung out here for the week. I'll be back!

Room Tip: We were right next to the office which was convenient but frankly it wouldn't matter. It's s...

My wife and I decided to spend one last night in the Saluda area as a last minute decision. We did not expect to find such a charming and welcoming sight as the Saluda Mountain Lodge perched high atop a hill just as we rounded a bend. As it was mid-December the Lodge was wonderfully decorated for Christmas and was a cheerful beacon. We had no idea that the Lodge was to be so charmingly decorated with each room having its own distinctive decor Wendy and Wayne Auman (the lodge owners) were very friendly and assured us that we would have a wonderful and restful night. We did! Definitely planning to return.

The Saluda Mountain Lodge is a family owned property that is a perfect spot and value for visiting the Western Carolina Mountains. The rooms are furnished with quaint and high quality furnishings and every effort is made to offer comfort to guests. Wayne and Wendy, the proprietors offer authentic southern hospitality. Our room had a king bed, microwave and fridge.

We stayed at he lodge in the beginning of November. We made it the last week of the leaves changing befor they were all brown. The owners of the lodge were very friendly and even started a fire outback in the firepit for us and provided smores making ingredients! HT room was very nice the bed quite comfy and a big ol tv.A reat place to spend a nite or two. we will be back to o ziplining next door. Locally owned and operated not a huge corporation! Wayne and Wendy were fantastic!

We stayed at Saluda Mountain Lodge over Veteran's Day Weekend. We arrived really early and Wayne happily checked us and talked to us for awhile. We unloaded and went behind the building to check out the amazing views. Amazing with all the color changing going on. The room itself is tastefully decorated and included a king size bed, big TV, frig, microwave. Coming from Florida and 80 degree temperatures, it was quite a shock to awaken our first morning to temps in the 20s. We had such busy days we were worn out each evening when Wayne or Wendy would like a fire in the pit our back and set out the fixings for smores. What a nice treat this will be next time we go up and in is not so dang cold outside.

Room Tip: get a deluxe room for the fridge and microwave.

First we would like to say thank-you to the owners Wayne and Wendy, you guys are wonderful. Your hospitality was above and beyond anything we have ever experienced. We can honestly say we have never stayed anywhere that made us feel more welcome as the two of you did. We went there not knowing what to expect and within five minutes after check-in; we knew we had choosen the perfect place. Thank you. I would recommend your lodge to anybody....even to the pickest of travelers. The rooms were immaculately clean, the decor and furniture was just beautiful, the views were breath taking, the fire pit was the perfect touch. Saluda is a beautiful place and we can honestly say the restaurants Wayne recommended was delicious and greeted by the kindest people we have ever met. We thank you and look forward to returning as often as we can. Until next time....Alan and Michelle

Room Tip: We stayed in the "honeymoon suite". Very nice.

Tremendous views, excellent hospitality. A short drive that's a world away. A must stay for any occasion. Treat yourself, you will be glad you did. Great Christian family to help with all inquiries. Places of interest, things to do, all within a small walk or drive from your door. A lodge by name, your own cottage nestled in the mountains. Wine snobs, leave your ego at home and enjoy the best accommodation in the whole of POLK COUNTY!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a door to the mountain side!
