The Oaks Bed and Breakfast in Historic Saluda, North Carolina
This Classic Queen Ann Victorian, located in one of the oldest established villages in Western North Carolina, stands as a landmark work of art—a testament to the architecture and craftsmanship of the 1800′s. Today, this elegant lady graciously welcomes guests with arms open wide.
Generations that have grown-up in the mountains of Polk County can make reference to the “beautiful Victorian up the hill.” The original home was built on land purchased from the Pace Family ($116) in 1895 by physician E.B. Goelet as residence for himself and wife Julia. 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, up the famous Saluda Grade, or 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 memorable 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 four spacious guest rooms, all located on the second floor and each with a private bath. The Carriage House offers two cottage suites designed to accommodate up to four travelers each, with maximum privacy and comfort.

“We planned a weekend getaway and considered a number of lodging options in the area. We chose The Oaks and are so glad we did. The hospitality was great as well as the accommodations. The room was comfortable, but most of our time was spent in the common areas or sitting on the porch chatting with the other guests. The breakfasts were truly outstanding. [Innkeepers] Donna and Dale were very helpful with suggestions of restaurants, hiking and shopping. Saluda is a great place to visit and The Oaks is THE place to stay! ” ~ Guest Review March 2010)
