Grand Bohemian Lodge opens doors to the Greenville public for the first time

Lodge features fine dining, roaring fireplace, spa, art gallery, nearly 200 guest rooms

Nestled along the Reedy River at 44 East Camperdown Way, Greenville’s Grand Bohemian Lodge opened its doors to the public for the first time Thursday afternoon. The lodge features fine dining, a roaring fireplace, spa, art gallery and nearly 200 guest rooms with easy access to the Swamp Rabbit Trail, downtown Greenville and Falls Park on the Reedy River. “We’ve got something for people to enjoy whether it’s staying here, just passing through town or just locals,” said Mark Kessler, Kessler Collective’s president and COO. But building the parkside hotel has not always been a walk in the park. It took seven years to turn the concept into a reality. Kessler explained that he and his team had to navigate the pandemic, a labor shortage and supply chain issues over their three years of construction. “We’ve had a very resilient team,” he said, “We’ve been through the ups and downs. But when you’re in a place where the people want to be, where the locals are excited and support us through the years makes it really special.” But those seven years were a labor of love, according to Kessler. Each piece of art and furniture was handpicked and crafted specifically for the space. Kessler says he hopes the hotel will help guests fall for Greenville and locals see it from a different perspective. “But really just kind of experienced a part of Greenville that people have never experienced before,” he continued. “And when you step out on the porch or eat at the restaurant, you’ll get a different vantage point of Greenville and the falls and the river that you’ve never had before.”
