Overview

Saluda House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautifully maintained Victorian home that has been in our family for over 30 years. Even though it is 150 years 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.

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 home is a convenient stroll to Main Street for shopping, antiquing, a cup of coffee, an old-fashioned soda, or a delicious meal. Meander through the quaint neighborhoods or enjoy a brisk run through the pine tree-lined streets. There is something for everyone.

Keywords: Quaint 150-year-old Victorian home nestled in the heart of Saluda, NC.

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 two 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!

Wonderful Home

  • of 5
Beautiful, clean and very well stocked with anything you could need. Love all of the antiques and art work. Would like to come back in the summer to enjoy the porches more and see what is lurking in those winter gardens!

Owner's Response: Jeanne,
Thank you for the comment. If you love gardening like I do, you will have to come beck in the late spring. There is so much to see in our yard. My pride is the lady slippers to the left of the driveway and the peony garden outside the bathroom window. You are welcome anytime and it is a quick drive.

Thank you again,
Karla

We had a great time in Saluda, it is a very quiet town. It is a great jumping off place to see other areas. The victorian is a great place to stay. The home has a lot of charm, plenty of room to sleep and sit around whether inside or outside. We rated the house 4 stars because there is only one drawback. You can sleep 8 easily, but if you wish to have a sit down meal together, it cannot happen. The only table they have is a little table in the kitchen and if you pull it away from the wall you could seat 4. Other than that, it is a great place to stay and just relax and enjoy what is around you.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed before, the house, location and price are great.
The only downside is no ESPN on the TV. We do like our sports.

Thank you for your review. You are the first to say anything about the TV channels. I will surely look in to adding some sport channels.

It was not my first time to western North Carolina, but my first time to visit Saluda. The whole family loved it. For a small town it has a lot of personality! And so does the house! It is exactly as pictured and described. It's quite spacious and comfortable. The big porch is awesome to have your morning coffee on. Everyone got to see a hummingbird at the feeder at least once. You will be visited by lots of butterflies too. You are within a short drive to ziplines, Pearson's Falls, great hikes, and rafting. I found the house charming and I would definitely stay here again!
