Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Built during the early 1900’s, The Chapman House is an original cottage of Historic Biltmore Village. It is part of a picturesque manorial village planned by none other than George Washington Vanderbilt (1862-1914), the founder of the vast and awe inspiring Biltmore Estate.

Initially, the European inspired village housed estate workers and was the center of community life, the location of schools, post office, train depot, infirmary, and church. However, through the course of time, a number of changes have occurred and the village has become a center for art, music, shopping, and restaurants resting just outside the entrance of the Biltmore Estate.

The Chapman House is the only cottage within the village that incorporates a mixed occupancy. A two-story structure, the upstairs apartment maintains a lodging facility complete with a full kitchen, bath, bedroom, foyer, living room, parking, and back porch overlooking the village. The downstairs is currently the home of Curtis Wright Outfitters, a retail store with goods for fishing, hiking and outdoor lifestyle.

The historic nature of the structure is preserved with original hardwood floors, doors, hardware, lathe and plaster walls, exterior appearance, and overall ambiance.

Enjoy the convenience of walking to dozens of local shops and restaurants, driving five minutes to downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway, or visiting the Biltmore Estate located two tenths of one mile away. Experience the diversity of four seasons with warm springs, green summers, colorful falls, and cool winters. The Chapman House offers a unique experience set within Historic Biltmore Village, located in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina.

Charming, comfortable, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Chapman House was more than we expected. It has lots of room including a large kitchen and nice covered rooftop patio. Right in the heart of Biltmore Village and just a couple of miles from downtown. We'll definitely stay there again!

Delightful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a quaint, delightful apartment centrally located in Historic Biltmore Village. It reminded us of the flats we used to rent while stationed in England. It has an old world charm, but with up to date amenities. The kitchen is well appointed and we used the covered patio, off the kitchen, every morning to have our coffee and plan the day's events. The living room has a sleeper sofa which was quite comfortable for our daughter who joined us for the weekend. The unit is tastefully decorated, clean and cozy for a couple who want to explore Biltmore, as the main gate is blocks away. Every evening, we left our car conveniently parked behind the building and took an Uber to downtown Asheville. No matter where we went, it was less than 20 - 15 minutes and always under $10 per trip.

Great little cottage close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family a 4 with kids ages 9 and 6. We had plenty of room. We could walk to almost anything we needed. We enjoyed a couple of days at Biltmore Estate, hiking on the blue ridge parkway, and downtown. We loved the outside area at the house and spent a lot of time there. We plan to return!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The location was perfect for the places we wanted to see - Biltmore, NC Arboretum, Blue Ridge Pkwy, etc. The apartment was just as pictured- nicely appointed and very cozy. It was a comfortable base for all our day trips. Great stay!

Great location and very lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were in Asheville for a family wedding and made the trip a mini vacation.

We were so happy with the Chapman House. Shannon, the owner was very helpful when we had questions about the area. We loved to apartment's charm and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay.

We will definitely come back.
