Our Story

Inspired by the world travels, tastes and active lifestyle of legendary cyclist George Hincapie, Hotel Domestique is a study in contrasts. Part countryside auberge, part modern boutique hotel, the intimate South Carolina property is appointed with exceptional contemporary furnishings and art, while still exuding the easy charm of a relaxed wayside getaway. Rustic hardwoods, exposed stone walls and artisanal ironwork are paired with a chic palette of designer tones and textiles. Inspiring, four-season views of one of America’s most beautiful mountain ranges are paired with architecture drawn from some of Europe’s most inviting inns and chateaux.

Those dramatic contrasts are evident in the experiences and excursions available to Domestique guests, too. The property has not only charmed travelers looking for a quiet escape, it has also become a favorite basecamp for those seeking out a variety of exhilarating adventures. World-class cycling, golf, fishing and hiking abound in every direction. Similarly, just as some guests spend their entire visit relaxing on property and savoring exceptional local flavors at Restaurant 17, others make the short trip to take in the award-winning culture and cuisine of nearby Asheville and Greenville.

Like the modern country house of a well-traveled friend, Hotel Domestique feels both international and inviting, worldly yet rooted in its beautiful Blue Ridge locale.
