Biltmore Winter Package
It’s hard to think of a better time to visit the Biltmore than during the winter months when the crowds have thinned and you may have an almost private visit to America’s largest private home. If you are lucky you may find yourself alone as you wander the rooms and halls of this amazing mansion. Docents will be available and free to talk to you. They will be happy to share their extensive knowledge of the Estate and the Vanderbilt family.
Afterwards you will return home to the Carolina Bed & Breakfast, a historic 1901 Bed & Breakfast built by Richard Sharpe Smith, one of the architects of the Biltmore itself. The Arts & Craft Style building includes an unusual pebbledash finish and is one of the finest examples of this style in Asheville. The house is located in the historic Montford District, a short walk from downtown. The historic district is unusual in that it contains one of the greatest concentrations of historic homes in the United States. In addition to the Carolina, there are more than 65 structures built between 1901-1920 on Cumberland Avenue alone. Your hosts will be happy to share with you some of the history of the house and district, giving you a picture of life in Asheville at the turn of the 20th Century
Book two or more nights at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast between January 13-March 19, 2014 and you will receive two 2-day passes to the Biltmore Estate for the price of one.
- 2 night+ stay at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast –gourmet breakfast, evening reception included
- Two 2-Day passes to the Biltmore Estate including visits to the House, Gardens and Greenhouse, Antler Hill Village and the Winery
Please call 828-254-3608 for pricing and details.
