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 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 ($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 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 is a spacious and private ground-floor cottage suite designed to accommodate up to four travelers.
