Close to the city in distance; far away from the city in attitude.
This classic Queen Ann Victorian, located in one of the oldest established villages in Western North Carolina, stands as a testament to the architecture and craftsmanship of the 1800’s. Generations have grown-up in these mountains and each can make reference to the “beautiful Victorian up the hill.” The original home was built on land purchased from the Pace Family in 1895 by physician E.B. Goelet as residence for his daughter. The Oaks was sold to Wessie Roach-Lane in 1906 and a long tradition of receiving guests had begun. At that time, Saluda boasted nearly 40 lodges and retreats, welcoming visitors who arrived by rail and horse drawn carriage to enjoy the infinite vistas, cool summer breezes and the healthy mountain air. The Oaks Bed and Breakfast is now, more than ever, a historic and priceless part of your Blue Ridge experience.
From the moment The Oaks Bed and Breakfast comes into view, you’ll know this place is special. The primary historic structure features five spacious guest rooms, each with full bath. The Acorn Suite, located in the former carriage house, is a spacious and private ground-floor cottage suite with kitchen designed to accommodate up to four travelers.
The Oaks is within walking distance to the quaint village of Saluda. There, you can stroll through an eclectic collection of shops, galleries, boutiques, restaurants and bistros. You may notice that every business on Main Street wears the brass placard of the National Register of Historic Places.
Many of Western North Carolina’s most popular attractions and points-of-interest are within an easy drive from The Oaks Bed and Breakfast, including the Biltmore Estate, The Biltmore Village, The Carl Sandburg Home, Flat Rock Playhouse, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure and the Pisgah National Forest and Asheville.
