Way back in 1913, Fred Seely and Edwin Wiley Grove had a dream. They imagined The Grove Park Inn, a hotel nestled in the beauty of Western Carolina dedicated to recreation and the benefits of mountain air.
99 years later, their legacy lives on. The Grove Park Inn has blossomed into a destination for people near and far who want a respite from the outside world. The inn now features elegant rooms, fine dining, a spa and incredible views.
There are plenty of reasons for The Grove Park Inn to celebrate, namely this momentous anniversary. The Inn will open its doors on Saturday, July 7 for a day of music, beer, cake and fireworks.
