Visiting the Grove Park Inn ~ Asheville, NC

 For the last two summers, Austin and I have traveled with Glenn
to various business meetings across the USA.  
We have just returned home from a 10-night trip to three different cities. 
The first fun three-night stay was at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC,
an easy 4-hour drive from our home, and one of our favorite places to visit.  
 The Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year! 

 

 The grounds are lovely with fabulous views of the downtown Asheville skyline
and the Blue Ridge Mountains.  
Each morning, Austin and I enjoyed the spacious lobby with the 
huge fireplaces at both ends. 

 Below, we are enjoying dinner on the terrace of the Grove Park Inn
after an afternoon of visiting the Biltmore Estate.  
The Grove Park Inn is the home of the National Gingerbread
House Competition and several Food Network cake competitions.

 
More from this trip to come...

What a wonderful trip! While in Ashville a few years ago we drove by the Inn. Beautiful!

Now this looks like a wonderful and relaxing place to visit. Another place I have never been, but would like to visit.
