HISTORIC BILTMORE VILLAGE COTTAGE

Asheville Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

Built during the early 1900’s, The Chapman House is an original surviving 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 servants, 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 historic nature of the structure is preserved with original hardwood floors, doors, hardware, lathe and plaster walls, exterior appearance, and overall ambiance. The downstairs maintains a mercantile atmosphere, currently the home of Curtis Wright Outfitters, a retail store with goods for hiking, fishing, and outdoor lifestyle.

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.

Great Historic Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two nights in this lovely apartment. The apartment was decorated with such charming furnishings...loved experiencing this piece of history. We enjoyed having breakfast at the Corner Cafe --- which was directly across the street. Very close and convenient to the Biltmore Estate. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who has a love for the past. Great apartment at a great price. We would definitely rent this apartment again.

Loved It

Great place at a great location for a great price. Very short drive from downtown Asheville. Shannon was very attentive. Would recommend to any couple staying in Asheville who is looking for a cozy place that is a bit more interesting than your average hotel room. Thanks!

Really charming place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our 4 day stay, and hated to leave. The decor was very eclectic and welcoming. Since the Corner Kitchen is our favorite restaurant, being right across the street was a real bonus. We love visiting Asheville, and this was by far our favorite place we stayed. Hopefully it will be available again when we come back in the spring. Thanks, Shannon for providing such a homey historic place to stay.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of living at Chapman House from April 2010 through November 2010. I loved the place. Quaint charm, historic area, walking distance to excellent food, drink, shopping. I can't say enough about the apartment. The kitchen is ready for whatever meal you wish to prepare right down to basic spices. Laundry facilities, outdoor covered patio with music if you please. In the heart of the historic Biltmore Village you are across the street from the Corner kitchen (it was President Obama's choice for dinner in the fall of 2010), short walking distance to the Fig, Red Stag and Rezaz (excellent food, try the smoked ceasar salad) for finer dining. Mexican fare served at the Neo Cafe and my personal favorite and a favorite of locals, the Village Wayside (excellent food at a fair price). All of these places are a 5 minute walk from Chapman House. Getting back to the apartment...I miss it very much. I push every day to be transfered back to Asheville and to Chapman House. Shannon's attention to detail is excellent. She enjoys what she's doing with Chapman House and it shows. Thank you. Scott A.

Best of both worlds...old and new!

  • 5 of 5
My Husband and I just got back from our visit to Asheville, NC. We had the most wonderful time & staying at the Chapman house was the icing on the cake!! The house is a wonderful mix of old world charm and modern amenities! Shannon did a fabulous job with the decor without taking away from the details of house. The house is close to everything...downtown Asheville and the beautiful Biltmore and is just a short drive to Black Mountain and Cherokee, NC (Harrah's casino!)

Just a wonderful trip...we can't wait to go back!

Long weekend at apartment

  • 4 of 5
This was a wonderful apartment, very clean and ready for our arrival. Shannon clearly is a good manager of this property, promptly returning all emails and preparing the apartment. I agree with all the comments about the wonderful location, good for walking to shops and restaurants, and a lovely deck. There were only 2 reasons that we rated this property as 'good' and not 'excellent.'

The bedroom is located in the front of the building, and across the street from a busy, popular restaurant. It is noisy - not from the patrons but from the delivery trucks that start arriving at 6:30 AM and continue pretty much non-stop until 12 noon - refrigerated trucks that remain running, slamming of dumpsters to pick up garbage every day, etc. We learned to close the windows and turn on the air after our first evening, which helped a bit. Also, neighbors across the street were using a jackhammer all day, up until 7 PM in the evening. It's a great location in terms of convenience and walkability, but folks should also know that it's not a remote, quiet location but a vibrant, 'well-lived' neighborhood.

A bigger problem for us was the mattress, which was exceedingly soft. My husband and I rolled into the middle. Lovely for closeness (we were there celebrating our 25 anniversary) but uncomfortable for our bodies. I had trouble getting out of the bed without pain the next morning and suffered from back pains for those three nights and the next two weeks that followed. I do not recommend this apt. for anyone with back issues or other ailments that require a firm mattress. Check with Shannon to see if a new mattress was purchased before renting. Your back will thank you!

Restaurants that we would highly recommend: "The Corner Kitchen" (breakfast in particular was great), "Limones" (our favorite restaurant for both food and atmoshphere), "Table," "Tupelo Honey" (our second favorite - try the Shrimp and Grits, huge biscuits), "Early Girl Cafe," and "French Broad Chocolate Lounge" (Liquid Truffles are pure heaven).

Owner's Response: This is a wonderful apartment! It is located right in Biltmore Village, so it is not a remote location if that is what you are looking for. There are many great restaurants and shops within walking distance, along with being close to the Biltmore Estate, Downtown Asheville, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. I believe this is what makes our apartment have such a great location!
This was the first complaint I have ever had about the mattress. The mattress was only about a year old but as soon as I heard that the mattress was not comfortable for our guest, I addressed the issue immediately. We decided that the apartment could use a firmer mattress and it was purchased and put in the apartment.
We welcome any feedback that could make the apartment better because we want this to be a very relaxing and comfortable place to vacation. The Chapman House and its guests have been a joy for my husband and I over the past 5 years that we have owned and managed it. We have had the best guests that anyone could ask for and many have returned over the years. We take great pride in the apartment and will continue to make it a fabulous place to stay!
