The wait is finally over.
The Grand Bohemian, the massive lodge-style hotel located on the banks of the Reedy River in downtown Greenville, officially opened today.
The 187-room Grand Bohemian in Greenville is the second lodge in the lineup after its Beaver Creek Lodge in Colorado and, in theme, will spotlight the Richard Kesslers family’s Native American art gallery alongside the wooden chandeliers of hand-crafted deer and sparkling geode-shaped installations.

Offering panoramic views from the Grand Bohemian Lodge, the hotel’s signature restaurant, Between the Trees, is named for its location overlooking the Greenville Waterfalls in Falls Park.
Menu highlights include local agriculture and fish, beef and game, regional cheeses, and desserts prepared by an on-site pastry chef. Guests can dine around one of four fireplaces, in a 1,000-bottle wine room, or in the private dining room with an exterior glass wall that opens to take in the view.
