Stroll may be a a bit of a stretch, since Brewier and I walked halfway up the mountain, leaving both of us a bit winded.
We started out taking our usual walk through the neighborhood, but decided to head up to The Grove Park Inn, since it is just across the street from us. And halfway up the mountain.
The back of the inn. Yep, we walked up all those stairs too.
The spa. Its underground and has pyramid skylights.
The view of downtown Asheville, taken from the patio of the Grove Park. We were able to see our house too, but because the sun was setting I wasn't able to get a picture of it.
The inns lobby was just remodeled, taking back to its arts and crafts heritage. I think the carpets in the halls, which look like needle point, were a perfect choice.
The lobby sports two of these massive fireplaces, one on each end. I like that I can see the smoke curling up from them from my bedroom window.
It's so much fun living in an area with so much history!
