The innkeepers / owners Dale & Donna were very congenial and great hosts. The breakfasts were fantastic and rooms well appointed and maintained. The Saluda business district is within easy walking distance, and there are several waterfalls nearby and at Dupont State Park. Asheville is a short (35 minute) drive away as is the Blue Ridge Parkway. We stayed in the Treetop suite which is a separate building from the main inn, and it was a nice and relaxing. We did take a tour of the main house and the rooms appeared to very well appointed.
