Your map has the incorrect placement of our restaurant

You have our restaurant listed with the incorrect name and subsequently incorrect placement on Google Maps. The correct name is: The Orchard Inn of Saluda, NC. Your present listing has left out the "The" and therefore is being misplaced on Google Maps to a place that doesn't exist. Our address is:
100 Orchard Inn Lane
Saluda, NC 28773

We have one very nice review on your site from very happy guests.

Thank you!

  1. This is what I found:

    I added "The" to what was there (Orchard Inn) but everything else was as you put in your post above. I also found your website and added the "dining" portion of it to the place link. But I do see that for some unexplained reason our Google map shows your restaurant at an incorrect location (at least as far as what shows when I go directly to Google Maps and look there).

      This appears to be a problem in the Google Maps application, rather than on Chowhound itself. If you go to Google Maps ( ) and type in "Orchard Inn, Saluda NC 28773", it shows what I assume is the correct location. However, if you type in "100 Orchard Inn Lane, Saluda NC 28773", it isn't able to locate the address. When Google Maps can't locate an address, it uses the location it has for that zip code, and that's what's showing up on the map in the restaurant listing, the same thing it shows if you just type in "Saluda NC 28773".

      I've reported the problem to Google Maps, so perhaps they will fix their software to locate the address.

    2. If you can provide the latitude and longitude of the correct location for your business, we can update it manually. Otherwise, we're dependent on what Google Maps delivers back to us based on the address.

        The map on the Orchard Inn website, which gives the same location as Google Maps when entering the name of the business rather than the street address, puts it at latitude/longitude 35.2295, -82.3365.

          That's very close. The exact latitude and longitude is: 35.22973132709939 / -82.3365 , which puts our driveway right on rt 176. Thanks so much for helping to rectify this issue. I am very impressed with this site!
          I received a call from someone at Google Maps yesterday confirming our location, so hopefully they will fix the problem as well.

      2. This restaurant is still being shown in the wrong place on the map in its listing at

          We're having some unforseen issues with restaurant longitude and latitude. Apologies for the delay.

            In the interest of expediency, I fixed the coordinates manually. Is the map now correct?
