Many people who visit the Biltmore mansion long to stay overnight; if you're one of them, your wish is granted in the form of this posh hilltop property on the estate. The seven-story hotel mimics the look of Biltmore House with natural stone and copper. French manor houses inspired the interior. Nice touches include afternoon tea in the library. The dining room (dressy) has large windows with mountain views and a massive fireplace. Menus deftly blend local and international
ingredients and flavors; a five-course farm-to-table tasting menu is $75. (A Biltmore admission ticket, 12-month pass, or current lodging at the Inn is required to dine here.) Some Inn packages include admission to Biltmore Estate for the length of your stay, free shuttles to all parts of the estate, and other activities.
