About Karla T. Ward
We have a deep family history rooted in Saluda. My husband grew up there and my parents used this home as a summer getaway. My husband and I now own the home. We live in Texas, but travel to the mountains several times a year maintaining our home and yard.I have a Maltese who fly with me and spend time in Saluda. I always have a warm heart the entire time I am there.
Karla T. Ward purchased this House in 1979
Why Karla T. Ward chose Saluda
This will be our retirement home one day. Until then, we would love to have special people enjoying it as much as we do.
What makes this House unique
I have traveled to Europe several times. Saluda reminds me of the quaint European towns in Germany. To this day there is still not one franchise business in downtown Saluda. You can't get more Americana than that!

Highly recommend this home for fun relaxing get away. Very comfortable and close to everything. We enjoyed a short walk to downtown Saluda. Cozy inside and nice sitting areas outside. We plan to visit again!
Beautiful Victorian home! GREAT FIND!!
The house was beautiful! Love an old house with tons of character? If so, this is the place for you!! We needed an overnight stop for our family driving to Hilton Head. There were 8 adults and the house was perfect for us! Clean, neat, plenty of room! It is just a short walk to the charming historic downtown in Saluda. Yummy places to eat and really cute shops. Would love to make this our annual stop but would arrive a day earlier to enjoy the house, front porch and downtown!!
We loved it. Very cute and homey
We only stayed for a night but wish we had more time. Love the connivence to town and we really enjoyed the Purple Onion for dinner. We loved the house so much we wanted to go get groceries and eat in but walked to town and decided to dine there. Everything was great and it had all the amenities we needed. The porch was the best part.
Back in time.
Beautiful home, near downtown. We went for a bridal party get away and everyone enjoyed it. The girls wanted to stay at the house and drink tea in the porch.
This house was perfect for my birthday weekend with my favorite woman! The house is a gem and it is just a short walk to downtown Saluda. We really enjoyed just hanging out at the house though, because it is its own charming experience. Many thanks to the thoughtful owners for providing such a great stay in such a sweet little mountain town.
We’ve stayed here 3 or 4 times before and love it!
The house and location are just perfect!
Short but memorable excursions include a full array of water activies on the nearby Green River, Pearson Falls, Chimney Rock at Lake Lure, the Biltmore House, and Famous Poet Carl Sandburg's Home, to name a few.
