    This place is spectacular. Obviously we didn't stay in the Biltmore House, we stayed at the Estate Inn. The amenities were as nice as any I've experienced, plus a real red rose, robes and slippers, luxurious bathroom products, a bottle of wine, and a coffee table book. We also had tickets to the Chihuly exhibit. The grounds are remarkable. The dining was 'top shelf'. Great service.

    The Bloom with a View event offered beautiful displays of flowers and plants in time for spring. The trails were very easy as well. We spent about 4 to 5 hours here on a late weekday morning. Most of the visitors were older until a school bus came with about 30 kids, but they had a staff and a few other adults guiding them so they did not get in the way of the visitors.

    We stopped here on the way to our Blue ridge Mountain Tour. The artist work is so beautiful. They even had demonstrations of pottery making - really interesting to watch. There are very diverse pieces by multiple artists. Wood, pottery, glass, carvings, hats, books, etc. I have spent hours looking at everything. I took home some beautiful pieces as memories of our trip.

    Great experience and brought back a lot of childhood memories. LOTS of pinball machines and old time video games from a bygone era.

    Had the distinct pleasure of attending Mass here on 4/27/24 and felt most welcome. The tour provided afterwards was very professional and fascinating. A husband and wife couple provided excellent information about the church and its builders. They truly brought history to life and successfully shared their love for design, architecture, and their parish. Thanks so much!

    We come here every visit to Asheville and buy an ornament! I love that they are unique and one of a kind. They have a variety of items and everything is beautiful! We even grabbed some glass ware this last visit!

    What a lovely spot! Grovewood Village was our first stop after arriving in Asheville. What we liked is the more intimate experience of the larger next door Grove Park Inn hotel.
    Tom, the antique car docent, is hands down the nicest person to guide you through not only the car museum but help with any questions you have about Biltmore Industries. For families, there is a fun exhibit outside of whimsical animals as well as what looks like a fun small restaurant, elders (I think was the name). Compared to some of the other busier more congested spots in Asheville this a wonderful gem of a retreat.

    The Woolworth Walk was a very cool experience. It has artwork from all different types of artists and mediums. The kids even enjoyed wandering around exploring all the different booths

    My family and I come to the Nature Center often. We have had the most luck seeing the most animals early in the morning or on cool days. When it is hot or late in the day they all seem to be sleeping and are sometimes hard to see during that time. We always start with the Otters and circle back to them. If they aren’t swimming or visible during our first stop we always see them on the 2nd stop. In all of our trips we have never seen every animal in one trip. They have lots of good places to hide to sleep. In addition to the animals there are lots of play areas to break up the time and picnic tables for a lunch or snacks.

    We took the tour of the Thomas Wolfe home at about 10:30 am on a Wednesday. There is limited free parking at the house. The tour guide was excellent and the inexpensive tour was quite informative. The original furniture was spectacular for a 1900s boarding house. The exhibit which included many original family possessions was also very informative. The biographical film was truly excellent. One obtained an exceptionally good description of Thomas Wolfe's life and literary career. We highly recommend this marvelous experience to all. We spent about 2 hours for the tour and exhibits.
