The Grove Park Inn: A Christmas Tradition



I am being introduced to a few of my main man's family traditions each year of our marriage and this year the new one was Christmas at The Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. We met the bro- and sis-in-law in Asheville for a few hours of fun Saturday and visited the Inn for the ginger bread works of art my bro loves so much.



I felt like I was walking through a Food Network competition or something. This things are incredible (as you can see). Not to mention the grandeur of this 100 year old hotel (Happy Birthday Grove Park!). At least 10 U.S. Presidents have visited the hotel and/or made major career decisions while staying at the Inn. I also saw guest names like Helen Keller, the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers. Amazing history in wrapped up in this beautiful building. If you are ever in the area, visit and maybe even stop in for a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants within the Inn. And if you are able to really pamper yourself, visit the spa. I have heard it cannot be beat.

Christmas at the Grove Park:

Grand prize winner or something...It was in a glass case.


We even heard a hand-bell choir!
