In 1987, Biltmore Farms Hotels first opened its doors to travelers. Over the ensuing years, our guests have experienced nationally award-winning service, due in no small part to this singular pursuit: Treat every person to an experience befitting a Vanderbilt. That's George W. Vanderbilt, whose assertion that only the finest quality products and services are allowed to carry the Biltmore name has shaped our company.
Our Prestigious History
As the 19th century drew to a close, George W. Vanderbilt's historic Biltmore Estate was already well on its way to becoming a national treasure. Built to his exact specifications, and modeled after the finest estates of Europe, Vanderbilt's home would soon rival the beauty of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains. It quickly became exactly what he hoped, a regal destination for Vanderbilt's friends and guests alike.
Nearly a century later, the Cecil Hotel Group division of Biltmore Farms acquired their first in a series of hotel properties. Yet it is Vanderbilt's vision that guides all Biltmore Farms' endeavors: to create an ideal escape to the mountains. This is Asheville, in true Vanderbilt style.
