Never been to the Grove Park Inn?

The historic Grove Park Inn, now owned by Omni, is a perfect Arts & Crafts destination. Its interiors a tribute to the Arts and Crafts era of design, this Asheville historic hotel attracted the affluent and middle class of the early 20th Century with its reputation as a house of healing and comfort amidst the Blue Ridge Mountains. This tradition continues today as its one of a kind subterranean spa, its gorgeous sunset terrace views, and comforting natural interiors attracts visitors from all over, including many U.S. Presidents.

In the videos below, Bruce is your guide (along with our trusty cameraman Bill) as he walks through the 8th floor of the Vanderbilt Wing, presenting the 2022 Antiques and Contemporary Craftsfirms Shows.
