Who really understands the sentiment of royalty – the idea that somehow certain privileges obtained from position or by birth have been bestowed upon special individuals? We at The Park on Main® – the luxury, pet-friendly hotel in Highlands, North Carolina – have a solid grasp: Its significance is woven into the word “boutique hotel.”

The vernacular underscores a wider principle, perhaps not one specifically of royalty, but that sense of feeling unique and special. We all want to enjoy those times of being pampered and drawn into the center of attention – stepping away, temporarily, from the frantic pace of modern living. We want to connect with the feeling of royalty; we want to be kings and queens, for a day, a weekend or a week or two.

That, in a royal nutshell, is the difference – the fantastic distinction – between staying at a boutique hotel and a motel. The Park on Main® is, by definition and by distinction, a boutique hotel.

boutique hotel is a unique business

The difference between the two is noteworthy; staying at a boutique hotel, as opposed to a traditional motel, exemplifies the royal experience.

To appreciate the full sense of the word, we must delve first into the adjective, boutique, as in the sense of the phrase.

Boutique: a business that serves a sophisticated or specialized clientele. That’s according to the Oxford Dictionaries.

Other definitions describe the unique and specialized qualities associated with the term. But the Cambridge Dictionaries puts a flavorful and interesting spin on the two words: “Boutique comes from a French word of the same spelling, which means any small shop. The word has its roots in the Greek word apotheke, meaning ‘a warehouse.’ The same root word also gave rise to the English word apothecary. The word boutique often has an air of exclusivity.”

That word – exclusivity – rings quietly with a sense of refinement, of royalty. That’s it. That’s what it is like to stay at The Park on Main® in these rolling mountains – colorful, bright, noble – of the Southern Appalachian range in Western Northern Carolina. Elevated, set aside, transformed, grand.

Fixed firmly into the small-town landscape of Highlands, The Park on Main® welcomes its guests. As kings, as queens. As princes, as princesses. Even your pets are welcome.

The Park on Main® is overlaid with luxury, situated in scenic grandeur, assembled with you in mind. Come. Experience the difference.
