Salamander Resort is Coming to Tryon

The North Carolina mountains have always been spectacular - Blowing Rock, Roaring Gap, Asheville are great places to visit. But the ante has now been raised to an even higher level.  Recent announcements in the equestrian world have all the buzz, a new but less over the top Wellington, in Tryon, no less. Yes, the rumors are true.

Real estate mogul and hotel/spa developer Sheila Johnson recently announced that her second resort (the first one is in Middleburg, VA and is fantastic) will be built in Tryon, N.C. 

Johnson’s company, Salamander Hotels and Resorts, has partnered with Tryon Equestrian Partners to build Tryon Resort in Tryon, North Carolina, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
When completed, the 1,400-acre resort will include a 150-room hotel, several 2,600-square-foot vacation rental cabins,1,000 permanent horse stalls, 10 riding arenas and a 5,000-square-foot entertainment pavilion.

The hotel will include a spa akin to the high-end facility installed at Salamander as well as an Arnold Palmer Signature Design golf course, an RV park and a sports complex, which will include a health club, game room, sports bar, tennis courts, climbing walls, a pool and more.

The project will be phased over the next two years. Tryon Equestrian Partners began work on the equestrian center in January, and the facility has already begun hosting equestrian events. The 150-room hotel is being developed by Salamander and is scheduled to open in 2016.
