Well, I hated to leave, just as I had suspected. We slept until nine, and then got up and showered and packed. DH went to get the car, I called the bellhop station for a bellman. Once again, everyone here was so nice. When we told the bellman we were going to self park again, so that we could tour the grounds before we left, he told us to just leave the car. We left it out front, and they watched it for us. We walked around, took pictures, and went back to the gift shop and bought a book about the history of the place as well as a few other mementos. We walked down into the spa, which is supposed to be amazing. Maybe next time, if there is a next time. After that, we loaded ourselves up and said goodbye to Asheville, heading home. Great weather again. A few tips about the GPI: you are charged a daily resort fee. $27 with tax. They do not give you a detailed map of the GPI and where things are located. At least we did not get one. I had to look things up on my laptop in the room. That would be a helpful thing to have, because the place is large. They are having their 100 year anniversary celebration this July. BB King will be there, we were told by one employee. The Sunset Terrace dining room is closed for renovation for the anniversary. The view is supposed to be wonderful, definitely reservations if it is open when you go. Also, in the historic section, there is a trick to opening the room doors. Ask the elevator attendant. We were headed back down to report our keys did not work and she just smiled and asked if she could give it a try. Slide it slowly and it works. Once again, great customer service. The GPI was acquired by a hotel corporation in 2012, but they seem to be doing a great job. If you like golfing, they have a great course. Cannot say enough good things. We got a great deal on our room, a special they were running online. Check their website for specials. Also, I booked online, and it said there were no rooms available in the historic section. I added a message to the reservation that we really wanted to stay in the historic section, with my cell number. The next morning, the reservation CSR called me and told me that they had been able to do that for me. It never hurts to ask. Funny thing, this hotel and the Haywood both only gave us 2 washcloths daily but a ton of bath towels. I had to ask every day at the Haywood for extra cloths, and even when I left a note we just received more towels. ??? We had such a good time, and I do hope to return again one day. I hope this helps some people that are planning to go. Any questions, just ask and I will answer if I can. There was a lot more we did not get to see or do or eat, we just ran out of time.
