Beautifully maintained Victorian home that has been in our family for over 40 years. Even though it is 150+ year old, it has all the modern conveniences. In every room, you will be quite comfortable with plenty of room to spread out if you wish. The flooring, ceilings and wainscoting are showcased in lovely heart pine. Both baths have recently been updated as well as the kitchen.

The house is 2 blocks from Main St which has 6 wonderful restaurants, a brew pub and many live music venues. All you can walk to! There is a kayak business and zipline company. Many tubing companies down along the Green River.

Asheville is 30 minutes away with Biltmore House and many craft breweries. Sierra Nevada is a must see!

Main Street Hendersonville is 10 minutes away with great shopping, restaurants, pubs and breweries!

The gazebo-style front porch beckons you to relax with a drink, a book, or games from sunrise to sunset. You will delight in a yard of native wildflowers, a Koi pond waterfall, and gorgeous Dogwoods. The peaceful setting will make your stay even more enjoyable.

Our housekeeper charges $125.00 for cleaning. This is left in cash on the kitchen table. This is not included in your quote.

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!

                                                              Beautiful home

                                                              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!
