Okay, so we decided that we needed to get the heck out of maryland for a few days. We had planned a trip earlier but do to unforseen issues we had to postpone those plans. So when the issues of everyday life finally got the best of us we decided to go to Ashville, North Carolina. We could have gone to Philly as always but then we really would just …
We stopped for a stretch and to swap bikes. I was removing my gear to lower the seat on my RS for wade when an oldster on one of those NRC spyder a pulled in and asked if we needed help, we got to talking and he gave us about a week of trips we could take in the area. Then things got bad. Wade took off on my bike with me following on ...
So wade and I stopped for a stretch and we were both complaining. The ride was so long and our backs hurt and we were tired and some Ducoti's passed us like we were in reverse. As we were sitting there a guy in a 1200 GS came around the corner, saw us and came in. First thing he says is, "what state am I in?" He goes on to examine that he was at the qualifying for the GS team USA challenge that will compete against 24 other countries ...
... to the estate, which was an ordeal in itself. We had to drive to one place to pick up our will call tickets, then get in the car and drive to another place to park the car and take a shuttle to the entrance. Once at the entrance, we learned that there were no bathrooms in the house, only at the stables, so we had one more delay.
We ended up starting the tour an hour later than we had planned. Fortunately, it is a self-guided tour. It ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Residences at Biltmore Asheville
My partner and I really enjoyed staying at The Residences at Biltmore during our recent Asheville retreat in late June, 2007. While in Asheville, we wanted to stay in a place that would make us feel like we were staying at home, instead of in the confines of a hotel. Being able to cook a good home cooked meal with the right tools was just as important for us as going out to a fine restaurant. Having the ability to soak in a jacuzzi tub, was also important for me---as was having the ability to wash clothes if I needed to. We wanted to stay at a place that was nice, clean, modern and quiet----one that had a powerful air conditioning system; a place that you could wake up feeling well rested and refreshed. We found what we were looking for and more at The Residences at Biltmore and enjoyed our stay there very, very much. What we had it our apartment? A very powerful air conditioning system. Two large flat screen TVs (one in the living room and the other in the bedroom)---each with its own DVD player. A gas fireplace in the living room. A large balcony with a view of the hotel's and adjoining properties in the living room and bedroom. A full scale kitchen with granite counter tops, dishwasher, microwave, cook range, oven, side by side refrigerator/freezer with icemaker and water closet, state of the art pots, pans, dishes, flatware, and other applicanes. A stackable washer and driver---with great steam iron and ironing board. A large living room with very comfortable and nice furniture, hardwood floors and a nice sectional rug. A nice dining area. A large bathroom, with glassed-in shower and jacuzzi tub. A very nice, fully carpeted bedroom with a high king bed, designer linens and conforters, soft pillows, etc.,and lounging robes and slippers. We received housekeeping attention twice a day with evening turndown service with chocolates each night. The daily paper was waiting on the outside doorknob of our apartment each morning.
My husband and I stayed for a 4th of July break which coincided with my husbands birthday. The Concierge at the property called me before we left for the trip and knowing that it was a special occassion made recommendations and booked our restaurant reservations, had a bottle of my husbands favorite wine waiting for us in the room and suggested a beautiful waterfall hike for us to go on. We were truely spoiled!!
Mein Mann und ich waren zum Feiertag des 4. Juli hier, und gleichzeitig hatte mein Mann Geburtstag. Der Rezeptionist des Hotels rief mich vor unserer Anreise an und gab mir Empfehlungen für diesen besonderen Anlass, er nahm sogar Restaurantreservierungen für uns vor und stellte eine Flasche des Lieblingsrotweins meines Mannes in unser Zimmer und schlug uns eine Wanderung zu einem wunderschönen Wasserfall vor. Wir wurden wirklich verwöhnt!!
Mi esposo y yo nos alojamos durante las vacaciones del cuatro de julio y coincidieron con el cumpleaños de mi esposo. El conserje del lugar me llamó antes de que partiéramos al viaje, y sabiendo que era una ocasión especial, me hizo recomendaciones e hizo nuestras reservas en el restaurante, había una botella del vino favorito de mi esposo esperándonos en la habitación, y nos sugirió una hermosa caminata por la cascada. ¡Realmente nos mimaron!
My husband and I stayed here for a quick getaway. After spending the day at the Biltmore we were excited to see our accomodations. As you approach the property, it is very apparent that they are very much still under considerable construction - there is large equipment , building supplies and dirt everywhere, so the approach is not attractive. The outside of the hotel looks much more like an apartment complex. As a matter of fact, this place does not look or function anything like a hotel. There is no lobby, only a cramped office to pick up your key. There are absolutely no onsite ammenities - no resturant, no room service, no pool, spa or even grounds (to speak of). The suite itself was very nice, brand new and extremely well equiped. Granite countertops, stainless appliences, luxury linens, spa tub, etc. The flat screen TVs were very nice! There was a small balcony, but no chairs to sit on. This brings me to the biggest dissapointment - the view was ugly - the rusty puddles on the flat roof of the building under construction next door was all you could see. No mountain view, as promised on the website. Even with all the other shortcomings, we would have been satistifed with the stay (we knew ahead of time about the construction) if there had been a decent view. Even when the construction is finished this ugly view of the flat rooftops is not changing! After taxes, our one night stay cost $330.00! This seems high considering the lack of a view or any amenities for guests to enjoy. For a slightly higher price we could have stayed at the Inn on Biltmore and for much less we could have stayed in an Inn with breakfast included and a view and/or gardens to enjoy. The management should consider lowering the prices until the property is completed. I do not feel that we got a good value at all.
Ich habe während des Memorial Day Wochenendes in den Residences at Biltmore Hotel übernachtet. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und entgegenkommend. Unsere Suite war sehr gut ausgestattet, sauber und bot eine luxuriöse Atmosphäre. Das Bett war sehr komfortabel, hatte weiche Bettwäsche und kuschelige Kopfkissen. Der Wäscheservice war ebenfalls sehr gut. Das Badezimmer war ebenfalls ausgezeichnet, inklusive Jacuzzi und einer Dusche mit Glaskabine.
Me alojé en The Residences en el hotel Biltmore durante el fin de semana del día de los caídos. El personal era simpático y complaciente. La suite en donde nos alojamos estaba bien diseñada, limpia y parecía como si fuese de lujo. La cama era muy cómoda con ropa de cama limpia, pero suave, y esponjosas almohadas. También nos agradó el servicio de habitaciones. El baño también estaba increíble, con una bañera de hidromasaje y una ducha separada con cristal.
I stayed at The Residences at Biltmore Hotel over Memorial Day weekend. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The suite we stayed in was very well appointed, clean and had a luxurious feel. The bed was very comfortable with crisp yet soft linens and fluffy pillows. The turn down service was lovely as well. The bathroom was also stellar with a whirlpool and large glass enclosed shower.
We stayed here for 3 nights in April. I had a hard time leaving the beautiful accomodations to take advantage of the sites from this great location. It is 1/2 mile from Biltmore Village where you will find quaint shopping and restaurants and one mile from downtown with tons of neat little restaurants where you can dine in or out. Biltmore estate extremely close as well, not sure how far 1.5 miles or so?
