Destination Highlight: Old Edwards Inn

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains is a resort that offers variety, luxury and leisure all in one trip.

The Old Edwards Inn and Spa seems the ideal place for specialty meetings, weddings, or just a vacation to get away from it all.

Meeting-Minded: With an Executive Conference Center for 125, and other event spaces (including an event terrace, a rooftop terrace, a stylishly appointed barn and a 1000sqft meeting room at The Lodge), the Inn can accommodate small to smaller medium sized groups comfortably.

Leisure Getaway: With on-property golf, fitness center and an award-winning spa, you don’t have to leave the property to get active or relax. And if you want to, the mountains offer a plethora of adventure, like hiking, fishing and mountain biking.

Unique Locale: The Highlands, NC area serves as an incredibly catered destination for many types of guests, including the outdoor enthusiast, the wino, the antique or fashion shopper, or the artsy type who likes museums and/or crafts. With an average 3000-person population, the Highlands is a hidden gem of sorts, with beautiful year-round seasons, waiting for you and your attendees to discover.

Notables: The Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places, and recently hosted Atlanta food and travel writers to experience the culinary vision of Old Edward’s Chef Johannes Klapdohr. The German born chef specializes in farm-to-table cuisine, and is guiding a sustainable vision to Old Edward’s eating venues. The Inn has also been featured in Executive Traveler magazine.

Just for Fun: I love that they have ongoing seasonal activities, and December is a great month to show this off. Some of their events this month are Herbal Christmas Ideas, Walk-In Wine Tasting and Gingerbread House Decorating.

Old Edward’s seems to be an underdog just waiting for its chance to prove itself in both the meetings industry and the luxury arena. See for yourself if you belong at the Inn:
