About
Grovewood Village is a hidden gem rich with art and history. Located adjacent to the Omni Grove Park Inn, this site once housed the weaving and woodworking operations of Biltmore Industries, a force in American craft and textiles that was co-founded by Edith Vanderbilt. Today, the 11-acre property is home to Grovewood Gallery, working artist studios, the Biltmore Industries Homespun Museum, the Estes-Winn Antique Car Museum, and Eldr restaurant. PLEASE NOTE: Our two museums are CLOSED from January - March. Grovewood Village has no admission fees, and free parking is available on-site.
Duration: 2-3 hours

    Beautiful gallery
    What a lovely spot! When we visited, only the art studio was open. We loved this gallery; high quality work; we loved the variety of art forms. Feel fortunate to have a piece of artwork to take back to the midwest....Enjoyed some of the outdoor visitors as well!

    Small complex of two small museums and a nice shop.
    This is a small complex of a few century-old industrial buildings that have been converted into two small museums and a fine art shop. The museums are include a small car museum with some excellent old cars. There’s a small museum dedicated to Biltmore industries, which moved here during World War I, and produced textiles and woodworking. Finally, there’s a nice sized shop of crafts/art and fine furniture worth browsing. In total, this is worth about 1.5 hours of browsing. Nice for those small windows of time in mid afternoon before the dinner hour.

    Lovely area if you are nearby
    We were staying at Grove Park. This is right next to property. You can walk or Grove Park has a shuttle. We enjoyed the car museum! Gorgeous vintage cars. We did some shopping at the shop for local artists. This is a small area to walk and shop but we easily spent 1.5 hours there.

    If you go to Grove Park Inn don't miss the Grovewood Village
    Lots of interesting items for sale including furniture, pottery, jewelry. We stayed at the Grove Park Inn and they have a shuttle bus that drops you there. Next door are the antique cars also worth seeing and the craft center where everything is made.

    The Little Detroit Chapter of the AACA visits the museum.
    About 20 members of our antique car club visited the museum today. Tom Anders and his staff were tremendously hospitable, sharing the history of the Village, showing us around and answering our questions. A definite must see for car and history buffs.

The available gallery was outstanding for a venue for craft artisans. The museums were unfortunately closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, the artisans represented and the works on display were outstanding. Furniture by Alan Daigre showed superb craftsmanship and artistry, with a real understanding of function. Especially nice to experience was the variety of items display, from jewelry to indoor or outdoor sculptures, furniture, ceramics and other artwork. We spent about 1 1/2 hours here.

This review is about the Grovewood Gallery in particular, even though the Grovewood Village has more to offer. On our recent visit to Asheville, we were looking for places that were open on a Sunday morning and were pleasantly surprised to see that this place was. It's adjacent to the Grove Park Inn but has a separate parking area around the back. I'm a fan of the arts and crafts style of furniture, so this place was awesome for us. Too bad we didn't need anything at the moment, so this was more of a window-shopping trip for us. The quality of the merchandise is very good, and they are observing safety protocols during the pandemic. Even if you're not specifically looking to buy something, think of this as an art gallery that can peruse and appreciate.

This is the most picturesque art gallery I have ever seen! And I meant that. I have visited this place several times already and the richness and quality of the artwork never fail to surprise me. The gallery was very big and the artworks were neatly placed in various locations. All of the crew were well-rounded and helpful. I always make sure to visit this gallery whenever I am in Asheville.

If you enjoy art, crafts, furniture, design, clothing, history, or cars, then add this to your list during your Asheville visit. It feels like a mini English village. Enter one door and you are in an amazing gallery/shop with an abundance of locally-crafted treasures. Enter another door and you are in an antique car museum.
And the door I most strongly recommend is the one to the Biltmore Industries Homespun Museum. The little museum has an interesting film and exhibits, but our favorite part was the guided tour of the Dye House. It was really interesting seeing how the homespun fabric was created and dyed and to learn the history of the place. If you have read the Last Castle about the Biltmore estate, you may enjoy your visit here even more. Biltmore Industries is an interesting example of economic empowerment efforts. The story about how the buildings became museums is a good one!
A short walk from here is the Omni Grove Park Inn which also has a very interesting guided tour. It is a must see for fans of Arts & Crafts style furniture.

Adjacent to The Omni Grove Park Inn this is a really attractive destination. What used to be the weaving and woodworking operations of Biltmore transformed into a lovely historic shopping and arts nook. You can find here working artist studios, museum of antique cars, you can have your lunch or dinner. The surroundings are beautiful and nicely maintained.

We came for the small museum which has a collection of antique cars from the early 1900s to the 1950s. Very nice way to while away an hour. We went on a Wednesday and there was plenty of parking.....not sure how much parking there would be on a weekend.

Such a lovely peaceful village full of beauty and art. It also is lit up beautifully at night. There is a car museum, a small walking path with pond and art sculpture displays, a restaurant, a museum and a gift shop. Worth a stroll for sure. Village is accessed right off the terrace outside of Elaine's in the Omni Grove Park Inn.

On the day we visited, the only building open was the art gallery. It was lovely inside, and the staff was so friendly. We knew the antique car museum was closed until April 1, but I thought there would be other places open. We ended up taking our dog on a little walk around the path. It was a pretty place, and a nice way to burn an hour in Asheville.

Wanted to see a special landscape artist original works and wandered into the exhibition place. Wow ! this should be a must see if you're staying at the Grove Park Inn. There are things to see and experience that one seldom sees in everyday life. You gotta go ! Period !
