Green Park Inn
Opening in 1891, rich in history and architectural integrity, Green Park Inn is the last of the “Grand Manor Hotels” in Western North Carolina. Built in the Queen Anne Victorian style, the hotel was the most modern accommodation in the High Country at the time, offering amenities such as hot and cold baths, electric bells to summon serving staff, and fresh water drawn from its mountain spring. Green Park Inn was one of the first in the High Country to provide electricity to each of its guestrooms and also contains a telegraph and a post office, a part of which still exists in the hotel’s History Room. These luxuries, combined with a very active social agenda, from nightly dinner dances to sharpshooting demonstrations and lessons by Annie Oakley, made the hotel a magnet for city dwellers seeking a respite from the summer heat in the cool mountain breezes of Blowing Rock.
Today, Green Park Inn takes as much pride in catering to guests' needs and in creating a warm and collegial environment as it does in providing a classic surrounding along with modern amenities.
