One of our intentions during this trip was to pay our first visits to The Biltmore House and The Grove Park Inn, as somehow these destinations have managed to elude us in the past. We accomplished both in high style, and we discovered a few unexpected surprises along the way too.
The photos will take it from here...
|The Flat Iron Sculpture on Wall Street, |
and near Early Girl Eatery. and
other downtown attractions.
|This drive-by photo couldn't possibly capture|
Christopher Mello's enchanting garden in West Asheville.
|The Spa at The Grove Park Inn|
is definitely on my radar for a future visit.
|Photos don't capture the sheer majesty of the twin stone |
fireplaces in the lobby of the Grove Park Inn.
(The nappers in the rockers tickled me too!)
We enjoyed a delicious brunch with a top notch view here.
|The Grove Park Inn is known internationally |
for its holiday gingerbread contest and exhibit.
This one wasn't even among the official winners!

|We tend to be in the moment, and |
except for a few selfies, we forget
to take pictures together when traveling.
This one's a keeper.
