"What a lovely and peaceful place to stay on the Green River in Saluda! Four Winds Retreat has everything we needed: plenty of space for our group of sorority sisters, comfortable beds, 3 bathrooms with plenty of hot water, great gathering spaces in the upstairs living room, downstairs den, back patio and front deck. The view from the deck looking at the Green River is absolutely beautiful and the sound of the river is so soothing -- What a great area the deck is to gather for afternoon cocktails too! The large fireplace in the living room is so cozy and the outdoor fire pit is great! Downtown Saluda is just minutes away with lovely little shops and restaurants! We especially loved eating at the Purple Onion for dinner Saturday night - delicious food and great music for entertainment! There is so much to do in the area and we cannot recommend enough that you stay at Four Winds Retreat! It is just wonderful! The owners were delightful to work with for our rental with great communication. We loved it and intend to return on a yearly basis, if not more!"

Fantastic cabin near the Smokies and the Pisgah National Forest
"We loved our stay -- thank you! Josie was super helpful and checked in to see how we were settled in and enjoying our stay. Also, we took our 11 month old daughter, and found the sleeping arrangements to work just fine thanks to the baby monitor provided. All in all, it was comfortable, beautiful place to stay while exploring both the Smokies and the Pisgah."

"We had an awesome weekend!
The owners description was dead on.
The location was ideal - 5 minutes and 15 minutes to downtown Asheville.
This tiny cabin suited our needs.
The owners had the cabin immaculate upon our arrival.
(As I later understood the previous tenants caused some damage so the owners were scrambling to get repairs finished prior to our arrival ).
Due to that we had some minor questions that the owner promptly resolved within an hour or so on the first day. After that our 4 day vacation was worry free!!
Nicely equipped kitchen -
Terrific propane grill.
The hot tub was super hot !
The sofa is actually nicer than the one in the picture. It is a new futon - awesome for curling up with a book and listening to afternoon showers.
Wifi was sporadic but wasn't that big of a deal since our phones had strong 4g ( both ATT and Verizon )
We loved the 80s vintage stereo ! Great sound :).
The water is typical mountain well water. There were filters for drinking and showers. If sensitive - consider porting in your own.
Even though Ingles is down the road. We provisioned in a bag of ice.
The sheets and towels were nicer than we have at home. Almost like a luxury spa.
The directions and drive up was a non issue. Yea dirt road - even the last two switchbacks were non eventful. ( so flat landers have no worry!).
Very private / quiet setting. Our view was the woods. ( my preference ) The Yert down the road had more of a vAlly / mtns view.
Thanks again for a terrific weekend!"

"We liked the location of this very much, so close to downtown. We walked some of the neighborhood and liked it as well. We have dogs so it was a nice get away with them and they liked the doggy door,we may have to get one! It's such a nice house that we want to get back there. We had a fire two of the nights in the fire pit area and grilled a couple of times. We were very comfortable!"
