  • Really the only hotel we will stay at in western NC, worth the drive just to sit and look at the breath taking views, roast marshmallows, or make smoore’s by the fire, play corn hole or golf in the yard. The owners live there and are so spirit filled Christian people, making any arrangements to help lodge guests find places or things to do in the area. So cozy and quiet, you can see for 50 miles and no houses or buildings in site. Read more testimonies...

  • We stayed at Saluda Mountain Lodge over Veteran’s Day Weekend. We arrived really early and Wayne happily checked us and talked to us for awhile. We unloaded and went behind the building to check out the amazing views. Amazing with all the color changing going on.

  • My husband and I came up for a show at the Purple Onion and stayed overnight at Saluda Mountain Lodge. We had the same room as last year. My husband reported a problem with the toilet and shower, which was checked out. My husband’s suggestion was to re-check the shower, as he had some problems with it this morning, which he relayed to Wendy. But he is talking about us coming back sometime in the future.

  • Couple looking for a one night stay in Saluda. Our entire experience, from booking the room to check out, was fantastic. This place is small business at its finest. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Stayed in deluxe queen room with door to the backyard. Room was newly renovated, super clean, and “cute” (according to female). Bed was very comfortable. Backyard boasts a BEAUTIFUL view of the Green River Gorge... Read more testimonials...

  • Wayne and Wendy are very friendly and own and operate this motel with their family. Their hospitality is wonderful and the rooms are very up to date and comfortable. The two of us were looking for a inexpensive stay for a weekend getaway and this worked well as it is just off I-26 outside Saluda and convenient to the area we were visiting. The lodge has a firepit in the “backyard” where guests can gather after a day of touring... Read more testimonials...

  • Stayed for a night to kayak the Green River the next morning early. Check-in was a little slow but the super cute, comfy room made up for the short delay. The BEST part were the s’mores in the “backyard” …Loved it!! The first hotel ever to offer this amenity and it was great. The view of the mountains from the backyard in the evening was great! Best of all the lodge is run by a local family who really care. Highly recommend!! Read more testimonies...

  • This has got to be WNC best kept secret. They have breathtaking views, lovely rooms and a wonderful staff. We had our 10 Year Wedding Vow Renewal service is their courtyard and it was delightful. We have stayed in a couple different rooms, including their honeymoon suite and the rooms have so much character and atmosphere. One of our favorite places to go. I can’t say enough good things about SML! Read more testimonies...

  • The owners (Wayne and Wendy) are the epitome of hospitality, and it’s obvious they truly love running their lodge. We were only in the area for one night, celebrating our anniversary and were very pleased with our stay. It is an older property but is very well maintained, extremely clean, and nicely decorated with lots of cozy, mountain charm. The view of the Green River Gorge behind the lodge is gorgeous...  Read more testimonials...
