Sale of The Red Horse Inn

Main Inn of The Red Horse Inn

Upstate SC's darling bed and breakfast has been sold to family's son

Landrum, SC, February 2018 - After 22 years in the bed and breakfast industry, Mary and Roger Wolters have sold their business and eased into "retirement". The husband and wife duo began construction of the Inn in 1995 when Roger purchase Mary a bulldozer for their 21st anniversary. Mary used her new bulldozer and paved the way for Roger to begin building 6 cottages and finally the Main Inn. Through their combined effort they built one of the most successful bed and breakfasts in South Carolina.

Over the years, the Inn has been featured in Southern Living, as a prize on "The Price is Right", AAA Go Magazine,, and numerous other prestigious magazines and travel websites. As the awards and recognition piled up, business expanded, and they brought on their son, Christian, to join the management team and assist with daily operations. The business thrived beyond what Mary and Roger could have imagined.

While still passionate about their life's work, in 2017 Mary and Roger decided that it was time to start the next chapter of their life. After carefully weighing their options, they offered to sell the business to their son Christian. After all, who else could run the business and carry on their dream better than their very own son who had already been running the business? The final sale happened early 2018 allowing the Wolters family to carry on the tradition of providing exemplary service in one of the most beautiful settings for a romantic retreat in the Upstate of South Carolina.

The Red Horse Inn is a bed and breakfast located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and caters to guests looking to get some quality rest and relaxing with their significant other. There are 6 Cottages and 6 rooms at the Main Inn.
