Asheville, North Carolina

Grove Park Inn, one of the most notable and unique resorts in this country, is operated the year ‘round and is noted for its atmosphere of rest, comfort, and wholesomeness.  It is absolutely fireproof – built of the great boulders of Sunset Mountain at the foot of which it sits.  A thousand acres of woods and mountains adjoin the hotel, and its front lawn is the hundred and twenty-acre, 18-hole golf links of the Asheville Country Club.
