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 originally backed by Edith Vanderbilt. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 11-acre property is now home to Grovewood Gallery, working artist studios, the Biltmore Industries Homespun Museum, and the Estes-Winn Antique Car Museum. PLEASE NOTE: Our 2 museums are open Wednesday - Sunday and closed during the winter months of January - March. Grovewood Gallery is open daily year-round. Grovewood Village has no admission fees, and free parking is available on-site.

Fantastic!!

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.

Lots of history and many things of interest. Worth every minute spent

If you're already at the Grove Park hotel, you definitely should visit the Grovewood Village. There's a fabulous collection of old cars and lots of history as told in the displays and photos.

Fun stop
Oct 2021 • Couples
There’s not as much here as I expected and our GPS lost its mind trying to find it but we finally did. Up where this is as well as the Beautiful inn, there are a lot of very narrow twisting roads and hairpin turns that make me nervous although my husband has driven On these type roads all his life and does well with them. Even then, I was white knuckling the whole time! There is a sizable auto museum with a gorgeous blue Cadillac, another building with some historic artifacts including Biltmore Industries and another with various artists’ work.

Antique Auto Exhibit is excellent
Aug 2021
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.

Loved it!
Aug 2021
I visited the gallery and saw a wonderful collection of NC art and crafts. Many tempting things to buy. The staff was very kind and everyone was masked. I also visited the museum next door; it is small but tells the fascinating story of how this craft industry began. Then we ate a delicious lunch at the Grove Park Inn next door! A successful outing.

Disappointing
Jul 2021 • Couples
A lot smaller than we thought it would be. Took 10 min. to tour the auto museum. The other bldg. had two floors of things made by artists such as artwork, jewelry, and furniture. It was nice to see but on a small scale. Didn't spend much time there. The restaurant was in a cute, quaint-looking cottage like from a storybook but wasn't open in the morning when we were there.

Great collection of local crafts and furniture
Jul 2021
The shop has a fine selection of crafts ranging from things that would make inexpensive but elegant hostess gifts on up to whatever you care to spend. In addition, there are numerous pieces of furniture from local woodworkers. Definitely worth stopping by, especially if you are staying at the Grove Park Inn.

The adjacent building has a small exhibit on woodworking and weaving at Biltmore Industries. Fascinating. There is also a yoga studio. We didn't investigate because there was a class going on.

wonderful!!

LOVELY!! The car museum was amazing! And the history of the founder, Mr. Blomberg from a Jewish Lithuanian immigrant family was so wonderful! These are the people that made America great. Driving up the road you see a sea of wind spinners and sculptures that are for sale and although they are pricey for many they are beautiful to look at. Inside the gift shop are more treasures....it is like a museum! Just beautiful and the staff are friendly and helpful. I am saving up for one of those wind spinners!!

Worth a quick visit

The car museum was fun and the craft shop had lots of beautiful items. We enjoyed the outdoor moving sculptures. Spent about 45 minutes there.
