Southern hospitality in Victorian style

ABOUT OUR INN

Present day

Biltmore Village Inn began welcoming guests fifteen years ago with the intent to preserve the home's historic character while creating a welcoming yet luxurious atmosphere for all guests. We start by greeting each visitor like family with a personal tour and orientation to its amenities. We encourage guests to enjoy our evening social hour where you'll have the chance to interact with fellow guests, learn about things to do in Asheville, play a game of cornhole or enjoy a glass of wine by our fire pit or wrap around porch.

A step back in time

One hundred and twenty-four years ago, Samuel Reed and his father, Joseph Reed, decided to build their family home atop a hille overlooking the Swannanoa and French Broad river valley. Independantly wealthy and rich with land ownership, the Reed's were well known in this region.  glorious hill atop what was becoming George Vanderbilt's Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Samuel Harrison Reed House is rich in history. The home was built in 1892 for Mr. Reed, his wife and their children and is a beautiful example of classic Queen Anne Victorian architecture.



MEET THE BVI STAFF

Southern hospitality in Victorian style

We're a friendly and fun bunch of folks and can't wait to help make your visit to Asheville unique and pleasant.

General Manager & Event Coordinator Monica Hampton

Monica has been managing every detail of BVI for five years. With a degree in Anthropology and having taught US History, she understands the importance of knowing what makes guests happy and the historical preservation of the home. Be on the lookout for her short history book of the home soon! "I wake up every morning excited to come to work. How many people can say that about their job? Hospitality is so much more than just the service industry. Having the chance to meet people from different parts of the world and introducing them to a new region and culture is very important. The Asheville community is very welcoming and accepting of all different types of people and we like to encourage our visitors to shop local and experience what we have to offer! We are a group of lucky people being able to work in such a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere. I like to make sure each employee knows how important they are and in turn, they make sure our guests know how important they are! I can't wait to welcome you."

Chef Sean Hussey

The Inn was fortunate enough to find Chef Hussey eleven months ago and he's been wowing our guests with his culinary skills ever since. "Food excites me.

Housekeeping Manager Kimberly Peck

Kimpossible began keeping the Inn immaculate nearly four years ago. She completely transformed the housekeeping department and keeps our four-diamond rating sparkly clean!
