Grand Bohemian Lodge
Nestled inside Falls Park, the Grand Bohemian Lodge offers direct access to the Reedy River, while paying homage to the spirit of Greenville, South Carolina, and the indigenous people who once lived there. The design team was a collaboration between Cooper Carry and Sottile & Sottile, and they were inspired by the time-honored reputation of national park architecture, romanticized in the era of Roosevelt and The New Deal. To provide site lines to the falls and towering trees, many guestrooms are placed below the lobby level, while others feature terraces to provide that special indoor-outdoor connection.
The design celebrates natural materials, including cedar, other hard woods, and regionally sourced stone. Geodes and jade-colored accents add pops of color to the rustic, yet sophisticated interior. In the lobby, a black stone-laden fireplace takes center stage. On the exterior, cedar shingles in two different tones and stone around the base add texture and warmth. The interiors were completed by The Hotel Design Group.
Art is also a major component of the design, with many pieces taken from the owner's private collection. Paintings and sculptures depicting everyday Native American life are placed throughout the property. Two notable features are the extensive stone arrowhead collection found near the event space and the approximately 14-foot-tall bronze of a warrior on horseback.
The Grand Bohemian Lodge truly re-imagines a luxury experience and helps visitors and residents reconnect with the region’s history and natural wonders.
