About Marcia Vernberg

I am a retired USC Columbia professor who bought the house in 1989 as a weekend retreat. My wife and I renovated the house several times over the years. We closed in a back porch and added a second floor that has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths in the mid 1990s. We loved the peace and quiet of Saluda so much we moved there full time after we retired from the university. I have recently moved back to Columbia and would like to share the house with people who appreciate the Saluda area as much as I do.

Marcia Vernberg purchased this house in 1989

Why Marcia Vernberg chose Saluda

This property is very family friendly. My children, grandchildren and great grandchildren love to spend time in the Saluda area where they are free to roam around town and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere that is the essence of Saluda. The house is large enough to allow a group to spread out and have some space.

What makes this house unique

The front porch is especially nice during the spring until late fall. You can rock in the rockers and even eat your meals, play cards, etc. On the porch. At night children can catch fireflies and listen to the frogs croaking. It is very peaceful.

Peaceful charming home near downtown

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home with all the amenities. Very roomy if you need to have some quiet time from those you are traveling with. Lovely front porch with rockers to sit and enjoy all the beautiful flowers in the front yard. Great sound system in the dining room with fabulous CD's for background music. My grandson who is 8 said the music was his favorite part of the house. Everyone was super friendly in Saluda. The shops are literally 2-3 minutes away. Marcia was fabulous to work with.

The ideal place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as stated, we did not have issues with anything. The house was clean and everything worked. I touched base with the owner a couple times just to say how much we loved the house and the replies were very quick. Next time we are in the area, we will definitely stay here.
