Family-friendly resorts in Asheville like the Omni Grove Park Inn has a kid’s program where upon check-in, kids receive a backpack with fun items like art supplies, binoculars and games. They also receive milk and cookies their first night. They also offer outdoor program options to keep kids 5-12 occupied while parents enjoy adult amenities like the golf course, spa or drinks on sunset terrace.

Some hotels offer the added convenience of a complimentary breakfast, another perk for family's gearing up to go explore Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Many cabins and vacation homes are a great option for families with modern amenities, like full kitchens, firepits, boardgames, hot tubs, free Wi-Fi & TV (family movie night!), and private outdoor spaces.
