The Grove Park Inn has been an Asheville landmark since 1913. The inn's golf course (which opened in 1926) is considered one of the best courses in the South with its 6,720 yard, par 70 layout. Located on Sunset Mountain, this meticulously maintained course provides breathtaking views at every turn.

Since its opening, the Grove Park Inn has been a destination for celebrities and world leaders: from F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald to President Obama. And, it is located just three miles from our bed and breakfast.
