Step out of the worries of the world and in to pure relaxation at The Spa at The Omni Grove Park Inn. Twenty water features, including numerous mineral-based pools, complement the subterranean spa with cavernous rock walls, arches and tunnels. Enjoy 43,000 square feet of peace and quiet, 18,000 of which are amenities for you to enjoy before and after your treatment. Two therapeutic waterfall pools will soothe the soul and a lap pool blanketed with 6,500 fiber-optic stars and underwater music adds to the coolness of the space.

Escape to the private Men’s and Women’s exhilarating contrast pools, inhalation rooms, saunas and eucalyptus-infused steam rooms. Grab a warm blanket, light snack and hot organic tea at three fireside lounges with comfortable, oversized chairs. Fireplaces, a whirlpool and tiered outdoor terrace complete the experience and helped jettison the spa into Condé Nast Traveler’s Top Resort Spas in North America.

Thursday Night

The Market Place has been a fixture in downtown Asheville since 1979. Though it’s beginnings rose in the streams and mountains of western North Carolina – a place of mountain trout and small farms – it also has a hand and heart inspired by traditions far from our borders. This mélange of local food prepared with other worldly traditions of the table may have helped the Market Place garner national attention but the keen reverence for the heritage and roots of Appalachia has always remained at the center of what we do.

Attire: Resort Casual.
Location: Off-site downtown Asheville.

Friday Night

Friday Night Home Cookin’ at Claxton Farm. This beautiful working farm is located just 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. A very casual evening is planned with home cooking, s’mores, live blue grass music, some competitive archery & horse shoes and with any luck some curious farm animals will be grazing nearby. Did we forget to mention the moonshine tasting and mixology lesson?

Attire: Very Casual.
Location: Off-site outside Asheville.

Saturday Night

The Omni Grove Park Inn Country Club originated in 1894 as the Swannanoa Hunt Club. With its recent interior refurbishment and patio expansion, it is the perfect place for dinner.

Attire: Jackets for men / dressy for women.
Location: On-site.
