Garden View Charles Street Garden Suite is a guest accommodation located in Saluda, a small historic town in the mountains of Western North Carolina. This single guest suite is situated on the grounds of Charles Street Garden, one block from Main Street and adjacent to the little 19th century Episcopal church. Charles Street Garden has been featured in the series "A Gardener's Diary" on HGTV Network.

Reference to the suite is included in the annual N.C. Official Travel Guide, in the Handmade in America Series publication Farms, Gardens, and Countryside Trails of WNC, and in the book Romantic North Carolina. In addition, the suite was included in a feature article about Saluda in the travel section of The State newspaper, Columbia, S. C., and in an article on Western North Carolina which appeared in the July 2002 issue of Travel and Leisure magazine. Also, an article about the garden which surrounds the guest suite and our home was included in the Fall 2007 issue of the magazine Carolina Home & Garden.

Take exit 59, the Saluda exit, off I-26 and follow the signs to Saluda. The connector (Ozone Drive) will dead end at U.S. 176 about one mile from that exit. Take 176 to the right. This will take you into downtown Saluda. At the corner where the bank is, turn right. At the top of this street (Culipher), turn left; then immediately turn right. You will be on Charles Street and a white Episcopal Church will be on your right. As you come up Charles Street, turn into the first driveway on the right (we share this driveway with the church). On the left, after entering this driveway, you will see a B&B sign indicating the guest parking area for the suite.
