In Asheville, North Carolina, there is one house that stands apart from all others—the beautiful Biltmore Estate. Completed in 1895, the luxurious family home of George and Edith Vanderbilt is a marvel of elegance and charm and is as magnificent today as it was more than a century ago. The home was first opened to the public in 1930, and people are still clamoring to get a peek inside and enjoy a taste of its historic decadence.
To enhance the Biltmore experience the estate offers multiple options for guests to stay on the grounds and vacation like a friend of the family, offering guests a personal taste of Vanderbilt hospitality. And of all the beautiful places on the estate to stay, there is one that dates back to the Vanderbilts’ time. Originally the private residence of the Biltmore’s market gardener, this charming two-bedroom, two-bath cottage has been finely tuned to accommodate guests today.
The classic, English-style estate house was designed by Richard Howland Hunt, son of Biltmore House architect Richard Morris Hunt. Later used as lodging for visiting dignitaries and celebrities, the cottage now welcomes guests for an exclusive getaway wrapped in history and natural beauty.
The estate-inspired home furnishings, bedding and bath, and gourmet and entertaining collections known as Biltmore For Your Home, allow you to bring a Vanderbilt legacy of gracious living and hospitality into your own home. Seen here in one of the bedrooms is the Charity Bedding Collection, which found its deep teal chenille and gold filigree accents inspired by historic tapestries hanging in the Biltmore’s Tapestry Gallery.
