All things Biltmore, the Village, the Estate

Recommended Posts

As one of the top attractions in Asheville that continues to grow with new additions and so forth the Biltmore Estate and Winery needs its own thread.  Along with the booming Biltmore Village area that continues to attract tourists and locals alike and new hotel growth.   Some of the estate today and though I have been many times I have not seen this new Antler Village development behind the winery.

We went to Biltmore back in November for the Candlelight Tour and to see the Downton Abbey exhibits. The Candlelight Tour was really beautiful, and we saw all four floors (which we weren't expecting). It is an amazing place!

^Who approved that Home 2 Suites??? Looks terrible next to the rest of Biltmore Village.

I don't know but that is where I stayed.  It is on the other side of the tracks from the rest of the village and in a floodplain as the first floor and reception is a up a floor with parking underneath.

It is indeed a flood plain and that does put some constraints on what can be done- but others have dealt with it more tastefully, like the building with Williams-Sonoma and such, or even downright expertly - like the Grand Bohemian. That building pulls it off like sorcery.

In contrast, the Home2 Suites is technically not in Biltmore Village proper, so it tries to get away with a flood-tolerant design done on the cheap.

Biltmore Village and All Souls Church in the village.   Nicest Ruth's Chris Steak house in the state and nicest McDonalds too.

Cloudy day the house and the estate still shine.  Today.   Some fine looking corn being grown down by the river.

I love that the Railway exhibit has a model of the Michigan Grand Terminal in Detroit.   One of the best examples of ruin porn.

Makes me want to visit Detroit again to see it in person.
