The Grand Bohemian Lodge

Nestled inside Falls Park, The Grand Bohemian Lodge offers direct access to Reedy River, while paying homage to the spirit of Greenville and the indigenous people that once lived there. The design team was inspired by time-honored reputation of national park architecture, romanticized in the era of Roosevelt and The New Deal. The design celebrates natural materials, including cedar, other hard woods, and locally sourced stone. Geodes and jade-colored accents add pops of color to the rustic, yet sophisticated interior. Guests are immersed in the history of the area, as paintings and sculptures depicting everyday Native American life are placed throughout the property. Similarly, a wall feature of stone arrowheads is found near the event space. To provide site lines to the falls and towering trees, many guestrooms were placed below the lobby level to provide instant access, while others feature terraces to provide an indoor-outdoor connection. The Grand Bohemian Lodge truly re-imagines a luxury experience and helps visitors and residents re-connect with the region’s history and natural wonders.
