About Suzanne and Marty Kelly
Suzanne & Marty met & fell in love while working at an Eco-resort on the island of St.John in the US Virgin Islands. After much deliberation about where to make our permanent home ( and even more on where we shouldn't) we decided on the mountains of North Carolina. We moved here after our island wedding in 2004 and have never regretted our decision.
Suzanne and Marty Kelly purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Suzanne and Marty Kelly chose Saluda
We have another vacation rental property, Mountain Vista Retreat, located in Hendersonville, NC. It has been such a success that we decided we would like to have a second property. Our real estate agent actually sent us this listing by mistake, but the fact that the house was on a lake really grabbed out attention. We drove down to take a look at the property and fell in love with the location and the town of Saluda. We knew we were the right people to take this cottage from the 1970's into the next century. After nearly 6 months of renovation work (from November 2014 to May 2015), we are excited to share Saluda Vista with everyone.
What makes this Cottage unique
When we first came to look at the property, the quiet was what really grabbed and held our attention. We stood out on the large deck overlooking the lake from above and marveled at the peace we felt. The chirping of birds and the sound of running water held our attention. Ducks came flying from the west and skidded to a landing across the lake. The place just help a magical charm.

Overall the trip was wonderful. The property is so beautiful and the lake could not have been more peaceful. We did get turned around slightly on the way in and one of the eldery neighbors wasn't very excited about us taking a wrong turn down her road, but no biggie. The satellite service was out and we were told a technician would be there from noon-2, however this window really turned out to be 1030-4 and the service still went out a couple hours later. Not a huge deal, it just kept us in a bit of limbo on that day and we didn't get to go to the lake for as long as we would've liked. Even with that, we'd still come back in the future, we enjoyed the property that much.
Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in July 2019. We spent 11 relaxing nights at Saluda Vista. The home is well furnished with EVERYTHING you could think of and is very comfortable. We were able to contact the owners easily with any questions and were given excellent directions, ideas on things to do, and great personal attention.
The lake is an absolute blast! My children loved jumping from the floating dock. My only advice is to check the weight limit on the paddleboat as my husband is a tall/big guy and with all 4 of us it wasn't the best idea...
We will definitely be back to visit again soon!
Perfect place in Saluda!
Stay with family for a quick weekend getaway, super clean , well equipped and comfortable !
Beautiful! Updated! Perfect Getaway!
We could not have asked for a better home for our family getaway in the mountains! The house was perfectly updated, had EVERYTHING you could possibly need in the well stocked kitchen, and let me tell you about the sheets! WOW! I have never slept soooo good! From the most comfortable mattresses, perfect pillows and the softest sheets you could imagine. The home was so clean and so perfect for our family.
The area was so quaint. Downtown Saluda was the perfect little town with cute restaurants and a number of activities in the area within a 15 minute drive. We tubed down the green river and zipped through the mountains at the Gorge! So convenient in location and jumped on I26 one day and hopped up to Asheville for pottery lessons, a tour at Sierra Nevada, and a walk through historic Flat Rock before heading back to Saluda Vista for some dinner and relaxation!
The hot tub was a perfect escape at the end of the day, and the back porch was my happy place every morning with my coffee and book. The property sits so high on the property that there were no mosquitoes at all! It was the perfect outdoor escape on the HUGE back porch!
The kids took the paddle boat out one afternoon and paddled around Lake Hosea. The 1/2 mile loop around the lake is the perfect walk or jogging path to get a little exercise in after dinner.
We are so excited to go back and to also stay at their other two properties, which are just as well appointed! We definitely found our happy place in the NC mountains!
We enjoyed our stay in Saluda Vista. The house was charming and decorated beautifully! It was nestled among the trees and flowers. My family and I enjoyed returning to the home after our mountain adventures - the hot tub was a bonus after a long day hiking!
Wonderful Get away
The home is spacious and clean.. The rooms each have their own bathroom! One of the most impressive things about the house is that the kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with items like soap, shampoo, cotton balls, salt, pepper, common spices, coffee filters, etc.... these are items that I would normally have to get...
The landscaping is beautiful so much diversity and color.
I would love the opportunity to stay here again!
