Inn Named to 'Best of' List
Inn on Biltmore Estate has been named one of the Top 50 Resorts in the U.S. and Canada by Travel + Leisure magazine, as determined by a readers' poll.
The inn ranked No. 20, and has made the rankings in Travel + Leisure's poll several times during recent years. The inn shares a spot on the rankings list with several hotels and resorts around the Southeast.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by our guests and readers of Travel + Leisure as one of the top hotels in the country," said Douglas Hustad, the inn's vice president and general manager. "Our mission is to continue the legendary world class hospitality and service that George Vanderbilt was renowned for."
Biltmore's founder, George Washington Vanderbilt, was the consummate host, and to this day, Biltmore strives to carry on the tradition.
The inn opened in 2001, and extends Vanderbilt's vision, offering an inviting and gracious experience, much like that enjoyed by his guests when they visited the estate and stayed at Biltmore House.
Guests arriving at the inn are met with 165,000 square feet of amenities, including a variety of guest rooms and suites; fine dining in The Dining Room; the Spa at Biltmore; the library with a view of Biltmore House; lobby bar; exterior swimming pool; and fitness center.
Guests may also enjoy activities reminiscent of Vanderbilt's day - walking and hiking trails, carriage rides, horseback riding, fly-fishing, boating and biking.
In addition, the inn has received Mobil Travel Guide's Four-Star rating, Four Diamonds from AAA and a spot on Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List for several years running.
Located in Asheville, Biltmore was the vision of George W. Vanderbilt. Designed by Richard Morris Hunt, America's largest home is a 250-room French Renaissance chateau, exhibiting the Vanderbilt family's original collection of furnishings, art and antiques.
Biltmore estate encompasses more than 8,000 acres including renowned gardens designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of American landscape architecture.
Today, Biltmore has grown to include Antler Hill Village, which features the award-winning Winery and Antler Hill Farm; the four-star Inn on Biltmore Estate; Equestrian Center; numerous restaurants; event and meeting venues and Biltmore For Your Home, the company's licensed products division.
