Biltmore Village 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 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.

Great location, clean historic building

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in the historic Biltmore Village! There's great shopping and many restaurants all within walking distance. The apartment was the perfect size for my husband and me and our son and his fiancé. The outside porch was a dream, wished we could have spent more time out there! The owner was immediately responsive to a couple of inquiries and even allowed us to leave an extra car to be parked in the lot after we checked out on the final day. I hope it will be available for our next trip to Asheville!

PERFECTION - from the reasonable price, the location, the decor, to working with Shannon this apartment could not have been more satisfying. The Chapman House has character and charm that added another level to our 4 day get away to Asheville.

If you are looking for a convenient, clean, and character filled place to stay (that is decorated to perfection) - THIS IS IT!! Book today!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week at this immaculate apartment. The location is perfect in the Biltmore Village, and the accommodations were amazing! Everything you need to enjoy a quiet stay in Asheville! The apartment was stocked with a starting supply of paper towels, toilet paper and other nice amenities. Even some shampoo and conditioner! We spent lots of time out on the patio, and it was lovely! The price is very reasonable, and we hope to return again soon! We would highly recommend this property to family and friends.

Great Location and Perfect for a Couple!

  • 5 of 5

The Chapman House apartment was a perfect choice for our 4-night getaway. We loved the covered porch for morning coffee and an evening glass of wine, and took full advantage of Restaurant Week in Biltmore Village during our stay. The Chapman House is in a wonderful location for getting to downtown Asheville and onto the Blue Ridge Parkway, while enjoying the shops and restaurants of Biltmore Village. We are already planning our next stay!

Awesome Location, Awesome Space

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Chapman. The location is fabulous. The property is fabulous and Shannon is fabulous. Nice big fully equipped kitchen. Nice living room and bedroom. The apartment was the perfect mixture of original features and updates. Did I mention there is a huge outdoor area with a covered porch and uncovered area? The furnishings were perfect. It seems like a professional decorator designed the space. I was truly impressed by my whole experience. Every detailed was looked after. I am in the vacation rental business and my expectations were exceeded tremendously.

Great job Shannon! Hopefully we will be back next year!

Historic but modern gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in the Chapman House in historic Biltmore Village. Awesome experience! The upper level apartment was charming, clean and spacious. Decorated comfortably and tastefully with antique elements but modern amenities. The house is within walking distance of many cute boutiques, restaurants, a bakery, galleries, a brewery, antique stores, and close to the Biltmore Estate. We enjoyed our morning coffee and our evening wine on the covered patio off the kitchen. Parking behind the house was so convenient. We have visited Asheville multiple times and consider this property the one we will return to on our next visit!! The best!!
