Bottom Line

The four-pearl Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate is a well-designed contemporary hotel that offers the prime advantage of a location right on the Biltmore Estate property. The hotel features a seasonal outdoor pool and fitness center, and the surrounding Antler Hill Village area contains a winery, shopping, farmyard, and outdoor adventure center. A restaurant showcasing seasonal seafood is in the hotel, and several more restaurants are located on the estate. The 209 fresh, contemporary guest rooms all come with 42-inch flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, Keurig coffeemakers, free Wi-Fi, and attractive bathrooms stocked with C.O. Bigelow bath products. Those who want a more affordable hotel, not on the estate, but still a short drive away might consider the Baymont Inn & Suites Asheville/Biltmore, which has a free breakfast and indoor pool, but not as many on-site activities or restaurants.
