Finding a hotel at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina is a little confusing because of how the areas are named. Biltmore Village has many hotel options, but is outside the gates of the Biltmore Estate. This distance requires a car, and entrance fees, to access the estate. Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate has perfect mix of location, price, and comfort when staying on-site at the Biltmore.

Village Hotel On Biltmore Estate Overview
Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate is an adorable, welcoming hotel with tons of farmhouse charm. From the minute we entered Village Hotel we felt like welcome guests of the Vanderbilts. The lobby has lots of comfortable seating near the check in desks and looks like someone’s home.
A little past the lobby is the Kitchen, a quick service place for breakfast, lunch, or snacks. We found the breakfast and snack options tasty and fast.
Behind the Kitchen is an outdoor alcove. Find a variety of tables and chairs perfect for relaxing or having your snack from Kitchen. A live performer sings to guests several evenings a week for added ambiance.
There is one outdoor pool at Village Hotel which is open seasonally.
Antler Hill Village Dining
There are many dining options within a short walk of Village Hotel and a couple of options within the hotel itself. One of the best things about Village Hotel is the winery and three sit-down restaurants are just feet away from the hotel.
We enjoyed our dinner at Bistro best, but Village Social was a close second. This plate is actually a half portion of the rib eye meal Elizabeth and I split.
Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate Room Review
During our visits to Asheville we opt for a Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate double room. The room is spacious with lots of storage and a great layout making it a comfortable option. The biggest disadvantage of the double room is the beds are full size, not queens. This makes the beds a tight fit for two people.
Village Hotel Bathroom
The split bathroom is located just inside the entrance to the room. The large walk-in shower and toilet are in a dedicated space with a sliding barn door that actually closes well and provides privacy.
The bathroom sink and shelving are obscured from view from the bedroom area by a wall, but unfortunately the light above the sink reflects off the full length mirror on the wall into the bedroom. This meant I had to get ready with just the help of a nightlight if Elizabeth was sleeping.
The room at Village Hotel has a small cabinet area attached to the bathroom sink. This cabinet holds coffee cups, wine glasses, an ice bucket, Keurig coffee maker, and a concealed mini-fridge.
Village Hotel Bedroom Area
When moving into the bedroom area from the entrance there is a large open space, a desk with chair, a window seat with several drawers, and two double beds with a nightstand between the beds. There is another popular Village Hotel room option with the same setup and a king sized bed.
The room decor kept the same comfortable, yet stylish, farmhouse chic vibe as the rest of the hotel. I especially loved the window seat in our room. In fact, I wrote this article about our Biltmore guided trail ride experience sitting on that window seat.
Overall, I felt there was lots of storage and space in our Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate room. The only disappointment in the room was the incredibly small closet. The closet is cramped and my maxi dress was too long to hang on the rack. I had to instead rig a hanger on the ironing board hook so the dress didn’t pool at the bottom of the closet.
Our Village Hotel room had the following great features:
- Large bedroom area
- Comfortable and cute window seat
- Split bathroom
- Plenty of storage (except for the small closet)
- Great location in Antler Hill Village

Benefits Of Staying On-Site at Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate
Convenience When Visiting The Biltmore
Staying at Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate means parking your car and having dining and entertainment just steps away from your room. The relaxed atmosphere and varied activities nearby make Village Hotel our preferred Biltmore Hotel.
The Inn, while gorgeous with stunning views, is located at the top of a hill at Antler Hill Village. This means accessing activities and most dining options requires walking a partially unshaded half mile path down to the village or driving.
Access To The Biltmore Estate Grounds
Registered guests at Village Hotel and The Inn have access to the Biltmore Estate grounds during their stay at no additional charge. You must still purchase admission to visit the Biltmore House, but access to Antler Hill Village, the trails, and even the Biltmore Gardens are included with your resort stay.
Village Hotel On Biltmore Estate Overall Impression
Village Hotel is the perfect home base when visiting the Biltmore. Having restaurants, the farm, live music, and the winery a short walk from our hotel room makes Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate our favorite resort.
While The Inn certainly has a more luxurious feel with incredible views, it is located on top of a hill overlooking Antler Hill Village. This means if you stay at The Inn you must take a steep walking path or drive to reach everything Antler Hill Village has to offer.
The great location steps away from Antler Hill Village, a spacious room, and the welcoming staff are a big part of the reason we love our stays at Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate.
