Friday, July 29th, 2011

ASHEVILLE, NC – Asheville‘s legendary resort is now pet friendly. The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa is now accepting guests of the four-legged variety for the first time in its almost 100 year history. A new section of “pet-friendly” rooms in the Vanderbilt Wing of the Resort will come with a special turndown amenity. The Inn is offering guests who bring their pets on vacation a variety of trails and walking routes for exercising, as well as a special walking area for pets near the new pet-friendly rooms. “More and more of our guests were telling us they love to come to The Grove Park Inn on vacation, but they hated leaving their precious pets behind,” said Kevin Cross, Director of Rooms for The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa. “This is the perfect solution for a stress-free vacation for a lot of pet lovers. Now they can come enjoy pet-friendly Asheville and the scores of outdoor activities in the area without having to worry that their dog or cat is back home and lonely.” In addition to the many in-room amenities for guests and their pets, The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa will also provide guests information on local pet stores, vet clinics and other pet-related services to help support other local pet-friendly businesses. To make sure that pets of guests at The Grove Park Inn will experience the Resort’s legendary service, there’s even a special in room dining menu for pets now, featuring such items as Chicken “Pup” Pie and Meat Woof. While in public areas, pets must be kept on a leash or in a carrier. Restrictions to locations within the Resort for pet access include the Great Hall Lobby, any Food & Beverage outlets, the Sports Complex, The Spa and pool areas.
