SUMMER IS HERE, AND IT HAS ALREADY BEEN A CHALLENGING YEAR. THE GIRLS AT GOOD GRIT ARE READY FOR SOME RELAXATION AND PAMPERING, AND WE ARE SURE YOU ARE TOO! CHECK OUT TWO OF OUR GO-TO SOUTHERN HOTELS KNOWN FOR THEIR LUXURY AND PERFECT FOR SOME REJUVENATION.
Old Edwards Inn & Spa
445 Main St, Highlands, North Carolina
Relaxed European-Style Luxury
When you arrive at this Relais & Châteaux spa and golf resort in the heart of downtown Highlands, you may never want to leave the property. You are poured a glass of champagne and then escorted past pools, outdoor fireplaces, jacuzzis, and other tempting activities on the way to your guest room, suite, or cottage. Once inside, the sense of relaxation and surrender takes over as you find a house-made arrival treat waiting for you, as well as cozy robes and slippers, sumptuous Italian linens, heated marble bathroom floors, and the inviting glow of a gas fireplace in most rooms.
If you can possibly resist immediately succumbing to the robe-and-slipper embrace of indulgent languor, you might wander out to one of two heated mineral pools with jacuzzis and poolside service.
If rejuvenating therapy is calling your name, you'll find one of the most immersive and welcoming settings amidst the native stone, large beams, and Old-World interiors that characterize The Spa at Old Edwards. Indulgent relaxation lounges with cloud-like chaise lounges, soothing fountains and fireplaces, steam rooms, jacuzzis, a spa café with walls of windows that retract to let in the healing mountain air, and whisper-quiet attendants meeting your every need...this spa has it all.
After awakening from your spa daze, top off an already perfect day with a romantic dinner at Madison’s Restaurant and Wine Garden. An extensive wine list and seasonal menus of garden-fresh local fare are delivered in relaxed European style, service, and ambiance. After dinner, melt into conversational seating in Hummingbird Lounge and be plied with as much libation as you please, while live music on weekends lulls you into a state of blissful surrender.
Old Edwards Inn is continually incorporating best practices for keeping guests and employees healthy.
