During its illustrious 100-year history (2013 marks its centennial anniversary), The Grove Park Inn has played host to a whopping 10 U.S. presidents. The majestic hotel, tucked in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, N.C., boasts a world-class spa, five on-site restaurants and a par-70 golf course designed in 1926 by the legendary Donald Ross. It’s no surprise that this stunning property has drawn presidents Taft, Wilson, Coolidge, Hoover, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Nixon, (George H.W.) Bush, Clinton and Obama. In fact, after the Obamas’ second visit in 2010, the previously named Bob Timberlake Suite (named after the acclaimed artist) that served as their home away from the White House was aptly rechristened as the Presidential Suite.
