About Marti Wells

Originally purchased for a summer getaway. When we retired to Saluda and built our new home, we decided to keep the cottage for family and friends to use when visiting. Later, we decided to open it for short time rentals, so we spruced it up, bought new beds and here we are.

Marti Wells purchased this cottage in 1976

Why Marti Wells chose Saluda

We love Saluda! We live here and love sharing with visitors this special place called Saluda.

What makes this cottage unique

Short easy walk to Main Street Saluda.

Located in a quiet neighborhood, on a dead-end street, we are one of the few truly dog friendly accomodations in Saluda....and we have a yard.

Many of our guests love the deck where they can enjoy their morning coffee or a cocktail while grilling at dinner time. We have an extensive summer garden and share the bounty with our guests...they are welcome to pick their own fruits and vegies...can't get fresher than that.

Our Favorite

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here 3 times in the past few years. Love the location & the hosts are wonderful.

They supply you with a few staples until you can get to the grocery store and they allow you to eat from their garden. Highly recommend visiting Buttercup Cottage!

Owner's Response: We try to treat our guests as we would treat old friends. We love our little mountain town and are grateful that we can show it and the surrounding area to others. My husband and I have visited this area since we were children, and consider ourselves lucky that we now live here. In the summer we have a wonderful garden and are happy to share our bounty with our about farm to table. We love to have guests return to visit with us, it shows that we must be doing something right. Thanks for the great review.

Peaceful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in a great location. It’s a couple of minutes to downtown Saluda (a great small town by the way). It’s also close to Hendersonville and Asheville or not far from Chimney Rock. This is our second time staying here. It’s a great cottage for a couple. The owners live nearby and couldn’t be nicer. Yet, they won’t bother you for any reason. If you need something, just call. Thanks for another great stay Marti. We will be back soon. Wish life didn’t call us back to work. :)
