Home About The Inn and Its Owners

 About the Building:

 “Set on a wooded hill just above town, the original part of the 7,000-plus square foot Saluda Inn was built as a family home in the late 1800’s by the first practicing doctor to come to the quaint village. It’s changed hands several times since and has been used as a boarding house, the editorial offices for the town’s first newspaper and a home for physicians working at the Children’s Sanatorium. Joni and Rich Rauschenbach purchased the property in 2004 and have been refurbishing it extensively for the past several years. The inn is always a work in progress but has a cozy, homey feel. Unlike most B&B’s, the Saluda Inn isn’t so fancy you’re afraid to touch anything or put your feet up. Instead everything is accessible, from the large, professional kitchen to the wine cellar.”-Alli Marshall, Mountain Express 2007  

 The Saluda Inn is a comfortable environment that can easily accommodate a group of 32 (sometimes more). With 7200 sq. ft. of living space, it offers guests the opportunity to spread out and yet still be under the same roof.  There are spacious living rooms for meetings and group activities.  The dining room has plenty of seating for everyone in your group to share meals together. Kitchen facilities are roomy and fully equipped for you to prepare your own meals as you wish or arrange to have your meals catered.  The sunroom offers a great place to spend time with a book.  You may even wish to enjoy the almost 2 acres of property by sitting next to a campfire, enjoying a game of shuffleboard or just relaxing under a tree in the hammock.  Enjoy an afternoon of tubing on the Green River or a brisk bike ride down to Pearson Falls or just get in some good rocking time on the porch.  In the evening slip down to the cellar for some wine or a local brew.  Come step back in time and relax for awhile.
