About the property

4 Bedroom 2 bath home. Sleeps 8

Beautifully maintained Victorian home that has been in our family for over 40 years. Even though it is 150+ year 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. Both baths have recently been updated as well as the kitchen.

The house is 2 blocks from Main St which has 6 wonderful restaurants, a brew pub and many live music venues. All you can walk to! There is a kayak business and zipline company. Many tubing companies down along the Green River.

Asheville is 30 minutes away with Biltmore House and many craft breweries. Sierra Nevada is a must see!

Main Street Hendersonville is 10 minutes away with great shopping, restaurants, pubs and breweries!

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 housekeeper charges $125.00 for cleaning. This is left in cash on the kitchen table. This is not included in your quote.

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 a 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!

A real gem...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay over the past weekend in Saluda. This Victorian home far exceeded our expectations - spotless, comfortable, and in an ideal location. Beds were comfortable, AC and wifi worked great, and seeing the detailed woodwork throughout the home was amazing. We absolutely will stay here again during our next visit to Saluda. Visitors should check out the wonderful downtown shops, Green River BBQ, the Gorge Zipline tour, the Biltmore house (nearby in Asheville), and finally the lovely Episcopal church in Saluda (we were in town for a wedding).

6 of the 7 ladies in my immediate family got away to Daffodil Hill for 5 nights. Absolutely LOVE this house and the location! This was the 2nd stay for me, my sister and my mother. It's a beautiful house and elegantly furnished with lots of room for everyone! One of our favorite morning spots is the gazebo ... LOVE to sit out there with morning coffee and listen to the wildlife and enjoy the sunlight through the trees. Already planning our 2019 trip!
