Saluda Property & Real Estate
An Era Reborn
Saluda Inn Re-Opens
Saluda's historical landmark, the Saluda Inn has long-
awaited new proprietor's Joni and Richard
Rauschenbach to complete massive renovations and
With most of the work being completed this fall, the
Inn hosted Saluda's annual Christmas Home
Tour sponsored by the Saluda Senior Center. This
was the first time Saluda residents had an
opportunity to tour the Inn and walk the halls.
About The Inn
The original part of the home was built by the first
practicing doctor in Saluda. Dr. E.B. Goelet came to
Saluda just after the railroad in 1881. This gentleman
also owned the Saluda’s only pharmacy. Mrs. Louis
LeLand of South Carolina acquired the home in 1914
and expanded the original Queen Anne style home to
become a boarding house. Mr. Leland owned
Saluda’s first telephone company. The Charlton
LeLand, as the inn was known back then, was one of
the largest inns established in Saluda and operated
longer than any of its contemporaries. After the
Leland family sold it, widow Susan Leland Craig ran it
as a boarding house. She maintained a garden and
sold produce for extra money. She also used the
property for editing and printing the Saluda
Magazine, which was the first established newspaper
of the town.
Throughout the years of operation as a boarding
house, it opened its doors to the physicians and
patients of the acclaimed Children’s Sanatorium. The
Children’s Sanatorium was instrumental in bringing
many ill children into the Saluda area to the mountain
climate for specialized medical care that was not
readily available in the big cities. During the
depression most of Saluda’s 40 inns and hotels
burned down. The Inn was able to maintain a steady
clientele of “family” guests until the mid century.
After that, the operation was sporadic and in 1984 it
was sold to a group of investors and was primarily
run as a rental property. At the time the
Rauschenbach’s purchased the Saluda Inn in 2004 it
was in a total state of disrepair. Over the next two
years with the expert help from local builder Darryl
Russell, electrician Brent Keubler and plumber Dave
Thomas the building was raised and leveled, the
interior was essentially dismantled and put back
together and all plumbing and electrical systems were
updated. Throughout the renovation careful
consideration was given to maintaining its historical
integrity and it was recently designated as a National
The Rauschenbach’s continue to run it as a retreat
for family reunions, religious groups etc. and are
considering expanding to nightly room rentals in the
future. Some groups have been coming for 20 plus
years, and have made the Saluda Inn their
vacation home for the week or weekend every
year. The Rauschenbach’s are happy to own a
building that brings people close together in a time
when so many families hardly know each other
anymore. Saluda is a wonderful setting for the inn
and a great place to raise a family.
About The Inn Keepers
After receiving his EdM from Harvard, Rich
Rauschenbach lived in NY and taught German and
mathematics and coached swimming. He now works
as an IT consultant in the medical industry. He also
recently graduated as Chief of his rookie class in
Asheville and has accepted a position with the
Asheville Fire Department. When he is not working,
either on the Inn or as a consultant, he is
volunteering at our fire department or out training for
triathlons. He will be competing in an Ironman this
August in Louisville, KY.
Joni (Mahaffey) Rauschenbach is a SC native, and a
USC graduate. After working in the wine and
restaurant industry for many years, she headed out
west to pursue her culinary interest at Johnson and
Wales University in Vail, Colorado. She met Rich
there while he was on a ski trip and moved to NY.
She continues to work in the wine industry as a
consultant and sales representative and travels
throughout the east coast.
Wylie Everest Rauschenbach was born in NY, but
considers himself a NC native. At age 4, his personal
ambition is to “never grow up.” He is a big fan of fire
engines and matchbox cars.

Saluda Inn Holds Media Event
The Saluda Inn hosted a "media event" in January
and invited media outlets from all over NC and SC.
Attending the event were representatives from
Mountain Express, Florence News Journal, Creative
Loafing, and Saluda Lifestyles.
Saluda residents also attended and were quickly
steered into the kitchen to prepare a meal of pizzas,
salads, and desserts. A few guests who don't spend
time in the kitchen were instructed by Joni and made
very creative pizzas.
Preparing a meal in the gourmet kitchen of the
Saluda Inn can definitely be a family affair!

serve wine to her guests.

Yes, Brothers & Sisters, You Got to Believe!
by author, Joe Adams
When I was five years old, I used to go to church
with the widow next door. We didn't have a car and,
truthfully, I went to church with her because she
had a beautiful Ford convertible...a little coupe with
a rumbleseat. And when the weather was good, she
would put the top down and also open up the
rumbleseat so I could ride back there.
Actually I liked going to Sunday School. I was an
only child and always looked forward to any
gathering of children. I was a lot more interesting in
talking than listening, so this sometimes presented a
I won my first Bible in my Sunday School class. I
was able to memorize John 3:16.
It was a verse that we had studied in class. When I
say "we" I use the term loosely. I spent most of my
time talking to other kids while the teacher read the
Bible and told us what it meant. When she finished,
she turned to me and said, "Joe, why don't you tell
us what you need to do in order to go to Heaven."
I was stumped. I had not been paying attention.
But since she kept waiting for an answer, I tried to
come up with one. Finally I said, as confidently as I
could, "If you want to go to Heaven, you've got to
I was taken aback by her violent outburst. She
pounded her fist on the table and yelled, "No! No!
You do NOT have to love God. That's not what John
3:l6 says. You don't have to love him. You have to
BELIEVE. "For God so loved the world that he gave
his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
YOU'VE GOT TO BELIEVE."
I sat there quietly with my head hanging down.
Then I lifted it toward her and said, "I don't think it
would hurt to love God, too."
She frightened me in to learning John 3:16 by
heart...and winning my Bible. But, truthfully, I don't
think everyone is cut out to be a Sunday School

with the city. Church members, young and old went
on a caroling hayride and distributed toys on

Saluda City Notes
From Mayor Rodney Gibson
The month of January 2007 was a busy and
challenging month for the Saluda Board of
Commissioners and Mayor. This month included
The predominant subject of discussion and
consideration was the proposed revisions to the
current zoning ordinance. The proposed revisions
have been prepared over a period of 2 ½ years by a
very dedicated group of volunteers on the Planning
Board. The purpose of the proposed revisions is to:
- Regular Monthly Meeting on January 8
- Public Hearing on the Proposed Revisions to the
Current Zoning Ordinance on January 16
- Annual Retreat on managing development on
Saluda’s Gateway on Saturday January 20
•Update the language and structure of the
core elements of the current zoning ordinance to
provide clear and simpler language
•Maintain the stringency and intent of the
•Tighten and strengthen management of:
mobile/modular homes, certain undesirable activities
--Sexually oriented businesses, tattoo parlors and
body piercing establishments
--Storage trailers and containers
•Establish a ordinance with a sound core that can be
used as a basis for improving management of the
more complex and controversial growth challenges
--Historic Business District
--“Gateways” into our City
During January the Board of Commissioners and
Mayor listened to and reviewed the comments of
many in our community with regard to the proposed
ordinance. Letters, petitions and e-mails galore were
circulated espousing various viewpoints on the
matter of the proposed zoning revisions.
Additionally, we had a lot of open meeting comments
at the Public Hearing and Annual Retreat. Those
weighing in on the issue included concerned and
interested residents, business owners, property
owners, summer residents, visitors and some that
have only been to our wonderful community a couple
The breadth of the comments seemed to represent
all possible viewpoints. However, I’ve long learned
that sometimes you have to seek out and look for
opinions that don’t always get represented in public
forums. We received petitions from those that
wanted to strengthen the proposed revisions before
it was considered to those that think that zoning
should be eliminated. And once again, this
community demonstrated to me one of its most
important characteristics. The ability of its people
to disagree but still be agreeable with one another.
On top of that we received many offers from our
community to participate with the process going
forward. One thing is for sure, we’re going to take
them up on the offers. Our volunteers have been
one of the mainstays of our community historically
and it’s good to see that this characteristic still
A sampling of the opinions and viewpoints expressed:
•Why are we passing an ordinance that doesn’t
address the recognized deficiencies regarding
parking, signs, historic business district “Gateways.”
We should take the time to do this right.
•Can’t we just include some simple, quick fixes before
we pass this ordinance? It seems like that would be
easy to do.
•Why are we in such a hurry to push this through?
•We don’t have to reinvent the wheel, many
communities have good examples that we can
•We need to address parking issues in the Historic
•The signage allowed in the proposed revisions is not
•The ordinance doesn’t protect the historic buildings
downtown. Someone could come in, tear down one
of the buildings and put in a parking building
•We want low density and greenspace provided for in
the ordinance. Several years ago, this Board turned
down an ordinance that required property owners to
provide trees, landscaping, architectural design
standards, restrictions on signs, architectural
standards and protections for the historic buildings
and more controls on residential areas. We should
look at that ordinance again.
•Historically, the natives and residents have done a
good job of taking care of what we have. Why is it
that all of a sudden that this is not good enough? It’s
the reason that most of us are still here and others
have moved here. The natives respect their land,
property and our heritage.
•We need to consider the rights of the property
owners and understand that there are limitations on
the restrictions that can be imposed that are
constitutionally based. Additionally, there are past
agreements that have been made regarding zoning
districts that must be abided by.
•Requiring greenspace along Ozone Road could
amount to “taking” since in some cases it would
seriously restrict the value and use of that
•There is a lot of confusion about the C-1, C-2 and
C-3 zoning districts that needs to be cleared up.
•The zoning ordinance should be structured so that
there is a basic ordinance with other specific
sections addressing things such as signage, parking,
Needless to say, this is only a sampling but captures
the gist of the general comments that were offered.
After the public hearing, the Board of Commissioners
voted not to take action on the proposed revisions
until they could sort through the comments and
better understand some late-coming revisions that
were offered by the Planning Board.
The discussion continued into the Annual Retreat
regarding “Gateways.” During this meeting the Board
approved a motion to form Advisory Groups to the
Planning Board to help address the more complex and
controversial growth management issues such as
the “Gateways.” The first task is to form a specific
Advisory Group(s) that include stakeholders—
Property Owners, Business Owners and Residents.
Applications for membership on the Advisory Group
(s) are being accepted until our next regularly
scheduled meeting on February 12th. If interested,
please call Doris Marion (749-2581).
The Advisory Groups will provide input on the facts
that need to be gathered as well as growth
management options that are available. Joint
meetings will be held with the Board of
Commissioners, Planning Board and the Advisory
Groups until clear direction on the strategy and
options to be employed are resolved.
I am encouraged and refreshed by the interest of our
community in addressing the broader issues of
growth management. I have my opinions on this
issue and respect the opinions of those that have
taken the time and effort to provide theirs.
Fundamentally, it’s not an issue of whether people
are concerned about their future quality of life in
Saluda. We all seem to have similar hopes and
dreams. There are some that put the emphasis on
lifestyle and community, others who seem to be
more financially driven (e.g., property values, taxes
and the like), some that have their egos wrapped up
in it and then there are those amongst us that are
All are participants in the process. But, there is a
difference of opinion on how to get there. It is the
Board of Commissioners obligation to find the way
and make the tough decisions—popular or unpopular.
Now, where does that leave the Board of
Commissioners on the proposed revisions to the
zoning ordinance? There are several issues to
1. Do all the comments and feedback warrant a
significant change in the original plan regarding the
2. Should the City continue to take the risk
associated with the undesirable uses, mobil/modular
homes and junk yards that the proposed revisions
address while we wait to resolve the more complex
and controversial growth management issues such as
signs, parking and Gateways?
3. What is the best strategy? Incremental
improvements or wholesale comprehensive changes?
What’s the history of success in Saluda in this regard?
4. Do we want a pre-packaged solution or one
that fits who we have been and who we are now?
It is what it is. It won’t be easy and it won’t be
quick. Fortunately, we have dedicated people and a
community full of resources.
