Our Story

In the 20th century, two women on opposite coasts laid the foundations of legendary hotels. Meet the women behind Fairmont Heritage Place The Cedars Hendersonville.
The Historic Fairmont in San Francisco

1894 – 1907

Mining and South Pacific Coast Railroad heiresses Theresa Fair Oelrichs and Virginia Fair Vanderbilt inherit land atop posh Nob Hill in San Francisco. They build a hotel there, naming it Fairmont – “Fair” in honor of their father, and “Mont” in reference to the hilltop location. On the eve of the grand opening – April 6, 1906 – the infamous great earthquake strikes the city, and the hotel is gutted by fire. The sisters rebuild and just one year later, Fairmont becomes the first major business in the city to reopen. In 2002, Fairmont San Francisco is added to the National Register of Historic Places.


In Hendersonville, North Carolina, Jeannie Bailey sees an unmet need for lodging. She convinces her husband, J.W. Bailey, the head of Southern Railway to finance a new hotel, The Cedars Lodge. Over the next six decades, The Cedars welcomes discerning guests and hosts grand social events.

Developer Gregg Covin, whose family has historic ties to The Cedars, purchases the building and adjacent properties and joins with Fairmont to create Fairmont Heritage Place The Cedars Hendersonville. A new era begins.
