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.
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at the Chapman House! The spotlessly clean historic apartment was well-appointed with comfortable seating, excellent lighting, a well-equipped kitchen, wonderful linens, and a covered private deck. Shannon has thought of all of the details, down to providing a customer card to the local Ingles grocery store! The location could not have been better. The Corner Kitchen, while not the friendliest place in town, but with excellent food, is directly across the street. Great shopping also available within steps of the front door! Of course the Biltmore Estate is also .2 miles away. Watch the steep stairs, especially if it is raining, as water dumps off the roof right on to them. Parking in the rear can be tight for larger vehicles. We're planning our return for Christmas in Asheville!
My husband and I are always looking for alternatives to hotels when traveling and we stumbled across the Chapman House on VRBO. We sent an email to inquire and Shannon got right back with us with details quickly. We booked and the rest, as they say. is history!
The Chapman House is located in the Biltmore Village and is above an outdoors/fishing shop. It's so cute and perfect for a romantic getaway. It was nice having a full living room & kitchen. It felt like a small apartment, was comfortably decorated and well appointed. There is a pull out sofa in the living room, so we will be coming back this summer with our daughter. If visiting The Biltmore House, this is the perfect location. We never have to search all over for a place to stay while visiting Asheville again. This will become our Asheville spot!
I can't say enough about how much I love to visit The Chapman House. I have visited each holiday season since 2011. It is a home away from home. The owner, Shannon, is wonderful. She responds to phone calls and emails promptly. She makes certain I don't lose my dates each year as I love to spend either Christmas or New Year's in Asheville.
The location cannot be beaten. The Biltmore Village is just outside the gate of the Biltmore Estate. It is full of shops and restaurants. It is an easy drive to downtown or the River Arts district.
The apartment itself is historic. The original floors creak! The furnishings are lovely. The kitchen is fully equipped. The shower may be on the small side, but the water pressure and temperature are great.
This is our place when we go to Asheville for our food fix, craft beer fix, and Biltmore fix. We hope to return as often as possible.
My wife and I were celebrating some milestone birthdays and our upcoming anniversary. This was our first trip to Asheville. We arrived and were so happy with the location, right in the middle of the Biltmore Village. if you are going to tour the Biltmore, it is so close, but you must drive.
The patio was amazing! We spent a lot of out nights out there. The kitchen supplied everything we needed to eat in, when we wanted. We had a fantastic experience and we will be returning to The Chapman House. On a side note, I forgot my jacket when we left and Shannon was amazing and mailed it back to me. Thank you for our experience and giving us a wonderful place to celebrate.
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.
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!
