If snagging a West Wing guest room ranks in your top travel fantasies, we may have found the next best thing: Opt to follow the first couple to Asheville, N.C., where Barack and Michelle Obama will be getting away from it all this weekend. The Ten Presidents Package at the 97-year-old Grove Inn Resort & Spa (their lodging of choice) could be runner-up to a White House stay – though the hotel is fully booked overlapping their stay, the promotion is valid through August 31. The package, named after the 10 presidents who have retreated to the mountain resort – big shots William Howard Taft, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower among them – recreates the executive lifestyle with an audio-guided walking tour; a free copy of Built for the Ages: A History of the Grove Park Inn; a $65 round of golf at the park’s Donald Ross course (rated the eighth best in North Carolina); one $25 Grove Park Inn gift card; daily breakfast for each adult; two nights’ accommodations; and 20 percent off a spa treatment. Rates start at $457 for a two-night stay, based on double occupancy.
