Hotels in Asheville

213-room inn on 8,000 acres that’s also home to the Biltmore House, George Vanderbilt’s 1895 château.

Innkeepers Peter and Lori White, who have owned bakeries in Palm Beach and Martha's Vineyard, serve three-course breakfasts (raisin scones with clotted cream, apple crisp) every morning.

The last hinge may have been hung only in 2009, but this Tudor-style boutique hotel abutting George Vanderbilt’s 1895 Biltmore Estate resembles a 1920s hunting lodge—though one decorated by an eccentric art lover.

After a devastating fire in 2009, the hotel is under reconstruction.

Victorian-style buildings (25 rooms in all) tucked among gardens, 7 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
