Less than 10 miles from downtown Asheville, North Carolina is a Scandinavian retreat called IROX ONE. Co-Founder Hillary DeMeo designed the property to have a breezeway, which is the perfect spot to gather around and enjoy food from local restaurants while taking in the dreamy views. Moreover, the home is expansive, providing privacy and allowing guests to be together with the ability to retreat in their own space. Using HostGPO’s discount on bedding and towels, they are collecting 5 star reviews left and right!

We don’t have to many crazy stories from hosting, I think we must have the best guest, but one thingI loved is that one of our guest hired a person Chef to have her 30th birthday dinner prepared during sunset in the Breezeway! It flows perfect with the Lux brand we have created!
