The Grand Bohemian LoungeThere are few places in the world as inviting as Asheville. The city has everything you can want to visit for a vacation or short getaway. Just a small sample of what the area has to offer includes:

  • Thousands of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails to explore
  • Dozens of craft microbreweries to sample
  • Some of the best shopping you can find in the South
  • World-class art galleries featuring some of the most compelling pieces in the world
  • Many miles of greenway trails throughout the city
  • A downtown with stunning architecture and beautiful views of the Blue Ridge and the Great Smoky Mountains
  • The famous Biltmore Estate, gardens, and winery
  • Much more than you can experience in a single visit

One question people have to answer as they prepare to visit the highest city east of the Mississippi River is about where to stay. From vacation properties on the ridges to famous bed and breakfasts, you have many options downtown and way out in the wilderness. 

For those who want to stay in the heart of the French Broad River Valley, you cannot beat the Grand Bohemian Hotel. 

Picture yourself in a beautiful, historic lounge, sitting by the fire, enjoying a bottle of Opus One Cabernet Sauvignon. We can’t think of a better getaway. 

The Grand Bohemian Hotel

The Grand Bohemian's majestic Victorian building will transport you back in time, yet modern opulent amenities will remind you of the hotel's most appealing aspects. The beautiful historic Corey and architecture combined with modern opulent facilities will remind you of the finer things in life. 

From the hotel, you can easily access all of the city's famous gastronomy and culture. The Biltmore House is practically across the street from the hotel. From their website:

“Shrouded in a smoky haze, hotels near the Blue Ridge Mountains possess a mysterious primal draw. But one stands apart from the rest. Feel it for yourself inside the Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville, in the patina of worn leather, the crackle of the fire, and in the secrets that echo from the antique curiosities on display. As one of the most unique places to stay in Asheville, NC, this isn’t a place that blends into its surroundings—it stands apart.”

A wine that pairs nicely with your stay at the Grand Bohemian is Opus Cabernet Sauvignon. Opus One is a winery committed to the absolute highest quality wine. Born in the Napa Valley community of Oakville, you can count on it to be one of the most unique wines you can find. Per their website:

“Together, our founders set out to create a single wine dedicated to the pursuit of uncompromising quality.”

You may be settled on filling your glass with Opus one at the Grand Bohemian Hotel. The only question left to answer is where to find it.
