SALUDA, SC

Located 40 miles west of downtown Columbia, South Carolina, Saluda is a larger town past highway 391 and Gilbert, one of the farther sides of the lake.

The Saluda area of Lake Murray is the farthest West area of the lake and is comprised of a small river compared to other areas of the lake, named the “Little Saluda River”, that feeds into the lake from different small branches near the town of Saluda. Saluda has a town center but overall is more undeveloped with a good amount of farm land. There are neighborhoods and residential areas around the town of Saluda with quaint homes, historic gems, and large estates. Even though there is about 500 miles of shoreline in this area, there is much less lakefront real estate for sale, making these secluded, wooded homes in high demand. The area has bridges that cross over both sides of the river to connect Saluda to other areas. Some popular areas include Wyses Ferry, Bar Woods, and Windwood Acres.
