Stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and 8,000 acres of manicured grounds make The Inn on Biltmore Estate a picturesque location straight out of your most elegant fantasy. Completed in 1895, George Vanderbilt’s estate was conceived as a lavish paradise nestled among the rolling hills of Asheville. Biltmore Estate remains the largest historic home in the United States by a considerable margin, and The Inn on Biltmore Estate has been welcoming visitors to enjoy its many luxuries since 2001.
The first thing you’ll likely be compelled to do upon arriving at the inn is to explore the pristine gardens. The Biltmore Rose Garden features a one-of-a-kind collection of roses from around the world, and the Biltmore Azalea Garden in full bloom is a sight to behold. After strolling around these or any of the other meticulously maintained on-site gardens, enjoy a swim at the heated pool or allow the steamy hot tub to rejuvenate you. For a full beauty treatment, visit the estate’s spa, where trained massage therapists and aestheticians will ensure that you receive the extravagant treatment that you deserve.
The Châteauesque estate is complemented beautifully by Biltmore Winery, where you can take an informative tour of the winemaking process and sip some of the nearly two-dozen wines that are carefully bottled there. Not content to simply have its own winery, the estate’s Antler Hill Village is a cozy spot that seamlessly blends a collection of cute shops and historical demonstrations into the natural beauty that Asheville is known for. The village also features award-winning restaurants in a variety of styles, ensuring that you can dine on everything from gourmet seafood dishes to Southern comfort favorites.
Though you could spend a lifetime enjoying everything The Inn on Biltmore Estate has to offer, Downtown Asheville – with its thriving art scene and rich museums – is just a few miles away. For a beautiful honeymoon with endless opportunities for photo-worthy moments, you can’t go wrong with this Asheville destination.
