Family with teens stayed at Residences at Biltmore recommended by this forum. We loved it. Great stay. Ate at two ethnic places which were excellent: Nine Mile, a neighborhood cafe in the historic Montford area with Carribean flavors and the flavorful Mela, an amazing Indian lunch buffet even for those who do not like Indian buffets. Both places were inventive and fun and filling and reasonable. Had to drag "I hate museum" teens to Biltmore House and they loved it. Took basic tour and it was ample. Shopping was sort of fun downtown - Biltmore Village was a little disappointing for the shoppers in our group. Liked Asheville so much we started looking for a realtor.
