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.

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay visiting the Biltmore at Christmas 2016. The history of the house and the village is unbeatable. Very clean and modern apt with everything you need. Loved the décor. I do give 4 star only because I found the bed to not be comfortable but everything else was perfect down to the smallest details. I would highly recommend this place and I would rent again.

The Perfect Holiday in the Smokies

  • 5 of 5

What a picture perfect Christmas in Biltmore Village at the Chapman House. Everything needed to make a homemade Christmas dinner enjoyed on the beautiful deck. Bed was so comfy and the sofa bed too. We look forward to returning. Thank you Shannon for sharing your slice of heaven with us. The Craig's of Minnesota.

Surprise BD weekend for my sister

  • 5 of 5

My sister figured out we were going to the Biltmore to tour but was completely unaware of the many surprises in store. The one I was most excited about was arriving at this lovely cottage in the heart of Biltmore Village and not checking into two hotel rooms to accommodate she, I and our daughters (4 people total). It was perfect! So quaint and clean. As others have commented - the sleeper sofa is pretty uncomfortable but doable for 2 nights for the college students! Definitely head to the Corner Kitchen for lunch or dinner and Well Bread (SP?) for coffee and pastries - both across the street. We will be returning.

Perfect hideaway in the middle of everything!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cozy and thoughtfully furnished little apartment for the second time in late November. It's immaculate and everything is of very high quality. I found myself looking forward to snuggling into the sumptuous, down-comforter-covered bed to sleep each night. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a sweet little table and two chairs - perfect for having a cup of tea or keeping the chef company. There is a lovely deck off the kitchen with great seating and a captain's table and chairs to allow alfresco dining in the warmer months. Wifi signal is strong, and there's a flat screen tv in the living room and bedroom. Great lighting, a collection of interesting books, and lots of comfortable seating make you want to stay in all day. Parking for my car was directly behind the building. I loved being able to leave my car there, cross the cobblestone street and have breakfast or dinner at the Corner Kitchen - a 4.5 star rated restaurant. I could shop all day in the eclectic shops of Biltmore Village, or walk to the winery and restaurants at The Biltmore Mansion, but I could also take an Uber uptown and arrive within 5-7 minutes. I'm hoping this great little hideaway is available next November so I can make it a 'triple hit'!!
