Woven by Raines
A specialized team that provides a unique service and development approach for boutique properties.
Successful properties weave together many individual details to create their own unique culture and guest experience. As a result, they require an approach that’s as tailored and distinct as the property itself. Woven was created to specifically address these needs. This approach, combined with our expertise as owners and operators, creates a better guest experience as well as efficiencies that lead to a better bottom line.
Each property-specific approach puts an extra emphasis on curated experimental programming, and a commitment to deep rooted community engagement through partnerships with local businesses and purveyors.
Customized, Tailored Strategy
Our approach is based on custom strategies specifically created to address the needs of each individual property, the community where it is located, and the expectations of the discerning traveler.
Branding & Marketing
We create property-specific branding, communications, and programming that conveys the unique spirit of each property.
Top Tier Food & Beverage Program
We offer top tier leadership and consultation for culinary programming and design, concept and menu development, and service execution resulting in financial success.

The Waynesville Inn and Golf Club
Built on what was originally a dairy farm, The Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa opened in 1926 as the Waynesville Country Club. Home to the Carolina “9,” designed by Donald Ross, the course has hosted many PGA legends from Sam Snead, Chi-Chi Rodriquez, and Arnold Palmer. For decades, the property has maintained an identity as a mountain destination for golf enthusiasts and those simply looking for a relaxing getaway.
Renovations will begin summer of 2021 on the resort-private hotel and golf club, which will remain open and operational for the duration of the project. Plans not only include a full restoration of the hotel and golf course, but also new construction additions, including practice facilities, golf cottages, restaurants, and more.
